Hole 1

Par 5 554  |  481  |  474  |  451
Hcp 3  |  5

 The long first will play as a three-shot hole for most.  The tee shot plays downhill to a fairway that slopes left-to-right.  Drives missing the fairway right will find a row of pines, likely requiring a pitch out back to the fairway.  A good layup will leave a short-iron approach between 75-100 yards to a small green guarded by two bunkers short.  The putting surface slopes back-left to front-right.

 

Hole 2

Par 4 439  |  419  |  401  |  401
Hcp 5  |  1

The long, uphill second plays as a half-par hole, yielding as many bogeys as it will pars.  A drive right-of-center is ideal, avoiding pines left and right.   A good drive leaves a semi-blind, uphill approach between 150-180 yards to a large, flat green guarded by a bunker and steep slopes left.  When the pin is left, play to the middle of the green. 

 

Hole 3

Par 4 417  |  383  |  348  |  307
Hcp 1  |  3

 The long third plays back down the hill to a fairway guarded by a hazard and woods right.  A solid drive leaves an uphill approach between 150-175 yards to a green guarded by a false front and two large bunkers.  The putting surface is deep, narrow, and slopes primarily left-to-right.  Par is an excellent score.

Hole 4

Par 3 194  |  186  |  148  |  139
Hcp 17  |  17

The first of the short holes plays downhill to a teardrop-shaped green flanked by mounding and two bunkers.  The putting surface is relatively flat.  When the pin is cut in the front, play to the middle of the green. 

 

Hole 5

Par 4 296  |  280  |  273  |  268
Hcp 15  |  13

The short fifth is a great risk / reward hole that offers two options off the tee.  Longer hitters can go for the green (275 yards on a direct line), but must carry mature pines left of the fairway.  The conservative option requires a shot between 180-200 yards, avoiding woods right.  A good drive leaves a blind, uphill approach of approximately 75 yards to a green guarded by two bunkers short. The putting surface is large and slopes slightly left-to-right. 

 

Hole 6

Par 5 475  |  452  |  404  |  305
Hcp 9  |  9

The beautiful sixth is a reachable par-five that favors a drive right-of-center, avoiding woods right and scattered trees left.  Longer hitters will be left with a semi-blind second between 175-200 yards to a green protected by mounding right and a deep bunker left.  Shorter hitters should play their secondshots to a plateau short-right of the green, leaving an approach between 40-75 yards.  The green is deep, but narrow, and slopes primarily back-right to front-left.

 

Hole 7

Par 4 340  |  320  |  285  |  273
Hcp 13  |  11

 The short seventh requires a drive played right-of-center as the fairway slopes significantly right-to-left.  Drives missing the fairway right or left will likely be blocked out by large trees.  A good drive will leave a semi-blind, uphill approach between 60-100 yards to a green guarded by a bunker and falloff left.  The putting surface slopes front-right to back-left.  The safe miss is short right. 

 

Hole 8

Par 3 188  |  170  |  160  |  135
Hcp 11  |  15

The last of the short holes plays uphill to a large green guarded by a sand right and a grass bunker left.  The putting surface is two-tiered and slopes considerably back-left to front-right.  Staying below the hole is key to scoring well around this green.

 

Hole 9

Par 4 395  |  363  |  317  |  294
Hcp 7 | 7

A drive down the middle is ideal, avoiding a lone bunker and scattered trees left.  A good drive leaves a slightly uphill approach between 110-140 yards to a deceptive, small green guarded by two bunkers short.  The putting surface slopes back-left to front-right.  Missing long will leave you struggling to save par.
