COURSE DETAIL

Playing predominately into the prevailing wind, this tee shot needs to favor the left side of the fairway on this opening par four. The long hitters may be able to get around the corner, but most players will be hitting a medium-iron second shot to a green protected by bunkers on the right.

Hole #1

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 13/11

    444
    410
    375
    335

Choose a club off the tee that will keep you short of the left fairway bunker. The approach will leave you with a short to mid-iron to a green sloping right with bunkers on the left.

Hole #2

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 11/13

    380
    348
    307
    272

With the prevailing wind at your back tee it high and let it fly. Tee shot needs to favor the left side of the fairway on this long par five and the long hitters may be tempted to go for it in two. Most players will be hitting a medium-iron second shot avoiding the bunkers on the left, setting up a short wedge to this well protected green. If you go for it in two aim over the last fairway bunker and watch your ball feed to the right as it runs up onto the green.

Hole #3

P A R: 5
H A N D I C A P: 7/5

    641
    604
    563
    452

Although this is the shortest hole on the course, it demands a precise shot. You should be into the prevailing wind even though you might not feel it on the tee. Favor the right side when in doubt, walking away with a par is a good score on this hole.

Hole #4

P A R: 3
H A N D I C A P: 15/15

    164
    156
    138
    87

A safe play will favor the right side, while a more aggressive player will take aim at the tall pine tree in the distance hoping to catch the down slope for an extra twenty yards. Downhill and downwind the approach plays shorter than the yardage given. Play it safe to the front of the green because long is not an option.

Hole #5

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 3/3

    492
    457
    421
    381

This reachable par four is a classic risk reward hole. Carry the bunkers on the right and you may find yourself with a put for eagle. This green is severely sloped from front to back and right to left.

Hole #6

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 17/17

    304
    274
    242
    206

We have another long par 5 playing downwind where long hitters can attack in two. The ideal tee shot and second shot will favor the left side as this entire hole slopes left to right. For those who laid up, precision is necessary to this shallow well protected green

Hole #7

P A R: 5
H A N D I C A P: 5/7

    624
    591
    557
    452

Elevated tee with wind quartering down right to left this par three will play shorter than the yardage. This green is protected by two bunkers on the right and a pond on the left, par is a good score.

Hole #8

P A R: 3
H A N D I C A P: 9/9

    185
    178
    158
    127

Playing back into the wind, a tee shot down the right hand side will get a left bounce to the center of the fairway. Take enough club on this uphill approach, but be careful not to over club, as the green is severely sloped from back to front. Par is a great score to finish your outward nine.

Hole #9

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 1/1

    474
    444
    406
    339

A tee shot between the bunkers on the right hand side will put you in good position for the approach. Second shot with the prevailing wind will play shorter. Be aware of hole location as this is one of the tougher greens on the course.

Hole #10

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 8/14

    474
    455
    348
    321

An accurate approach to this medium length par three will be necessary as the green is deep and narrow. Avoid the deep bunker on the left as favoring the right side as the terrain will feed your ball to the left.

Hole #11

P A R: 3
H A N D I C A P: 16/16

    181
    163
    152
    106

This traditional par four offers a generous landing area and the left side of the fairway will leave you with the best angle to a green that is guarded on both sides by deep bunkers.

Hole #12

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 14/12

    447
    413
    380
    347

Normally into the prevailing winds, accuracy will be at a premium on this demanding par four that is protected by water from tee to green. A calculated approach to this well-guarded green is crucial.

Hole #13

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 2/8

    442
    412
    380
    329

One of the shortest par fours may entice the longest of hitters to go for the small, well-guarded green off the tee. A more conservative well-played tee shot to the right of the fairway bunkers on the left will yield a wedge to this tricky green.

Hole #14

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 18/18

    367
    334
    302
    260

One of the shortest par fours may entice the longest of hitters to go for the small, well-guarded green off the tee. A more conservative well-played tee shot to the right of the fairway bunkers on the left will yield a wedge to this tricky green.

Hole #15

P A R: 5
H A N D I C A P: 10/10

    561
    525
    491
    458

Don’t be misled by the yardage, this downhill par three plays one to three clubs shorter. Choosing the right club is essential!

Hole #16

P A R: 3
H A N D I C A P: 6/6

    242
    222
    194
    149

With the prevailing wind at your back the longer hitter may drive through the fairway. A tee shot over the left edge of the fairway bunker will leave you with a mid iron to this fast and firm green that is hard to hold.

Hole #17

P A R: 4
H A N D I C A P: 12/4

    431
    425
    395
    314

Normally into the prevailing wind, this long par five is a three shot hole for most players. A long tee shot down the right-center of the fairway is a great start. The second shot is best played down the left fairway avoiding the hazard on the right. Longer hitters can go across to the right fairway on the second shot leaving a good angle and chance for birdie at the closing hole.

Hole #18

P A R: 5
H A N D I C A P: 4/2

    613
    589
    506
    414
