The Front 9
First Hole, Par 4
The starting hole is medium-length dogleg right par four. A large bunker guards the corner of the dogleg, and a large pond guards the far left. Large rolling hills, characteristic of the front nine, run along both sides and behind the green. The green slopes gently from back to front and is guarded by a small bunker on the left side.
Second Hole, Par 3
This difficult par three has a large flat putting surface, surrounded by two bunkers on each side. The most notable feature is the extremely large and deep bunker guarding the left side.
Third Hole, Par 4
The third hole is medium length, dogleg left par four. Two large bunkers guard the corner of the dogleg, but a long hitter can try and carry the bunkers leaving a shorter approach. A small pond also guards the left side between the fairway bunkers and the green. A large green that slopes severely from back to front is guarded on the right by two bunkers.
Fourth Hole, Par 4
This long and difficult par four features bunkers placed at different distances along both sides of the fairway to challenge all players. Pin position plays a key role, because the green features numerous distinct levels, sloping severely from back to front. The green is also protected on both sides by bunkers.
Fifth Hole, Par 3
This picturesque par three plays between two large ponds. Three bunkers surround a large green that slopes gently from back to front. A large bunker protects the entire right side of the green, leaving little room for error to right side pin position.
Sixth Hole, Par 4
Don’t let the length of this hole fool you.
A narrow landing area guarded by trees on the right and a bunker and pond on the left put a premium on accuracy off the tee. The approach shot is to an elevated two-tiered green that slopes from right to left. A right side pin position is particularly difficult because the player is forced to carry a very deep pot bunker and stop the ball on a very shallow green. A small bunker is also located behind the left side of the green.
Seventh Hole, Par 4
An elevated tee allows the player to view the entire hole. From the tee, the player hits to a landing area guarded by a bunker on the right and by trees on the left. The approach shot is played to a two-tiered green that slopes severely from back to front. Three bunkers guard both sides of the green on this particularly difficult hole.
Eighth Hole, Par 4
The eighth hole is a dogleg left that gives the player room to play safely to the right, but a large tree prevents the player from cutting off the dogleg. The green features numerous undulations, with the right side guarded by one large bunker.
Ninth Hole, Par 5
The ninth hole is one of the most challenging and interesting holes on the course.
The tee shot is fairly straightforward, played to a wide landing area. The player now must decide whether to play safely left onto a peninsula of fairway or to try and thread a shot toward the green down a narrow corridor with large trees on the right and a wetland on the left. A large bunker located in the center of the fairway also helps to persuade the player to play left, leaving a longer third shot that must carry the wetlands. The green is long and narrow with bunkers guarding both sides.
The Back 9
Tenth Hole, Par 4
It is very apparent from the tee that the upcoming holes pose a different challenge than the previous nine.
A very picturesque Hole, number ten is heavily lined on both sides by tall dense stands of pines. Accuracy is the key off the tee. A wayward tee shot leaves the player without a clear approach to the green. The green is the smallest on the course, with a gentle slope from back to front. Large pines also surround the green and help to frame-in the approach shot.
Eleventh Hole, Par 4
From the tee on number eleven, the player is forced to play between a narrow corridor of trees to a large flat landing area. The approach shot is to a green that falls away on all four sides, creating a very small target. This seemingly simple hole can play deceptively difficultly because of the shape of the green.
Twelfth Hole, Par 4
This dogleg right par four is the most challenging hole on the course?from tee to green.
From both the blue tees and the white tees, the player faces a small landing area at the corner of the dogleg with ponds guarding both sides. A long hitter might carry the corner of the dogleg from the white tees, but a play down the left side of the fairway from either tee, to short of the ponds is prudent,leaving a longer approach shot. Good distance control and accuracy off the tee is a must, as large trees guard both sides of the fairway at the dogleg. The player also faces a difficult two-tiered green that slopes heavily from back to front.
Thirteenth Hole, Par 3
Thirteen is a picturesque short Hole, played from an elevated tee set back in the woods. A small and very undulating green creates a difficult target. Trees frame-in the green behind and on the left, and a pond guards the majority of the right side of the hole.
Fourteenth Hole, Par 4
From the tee, fourteen plays slightly uphill to a wide landing area with trees lining both sides. The second shot plays to an elevated green that falls away on both sides and in the front. From a newly added pro tee, the hole plays as a slight dogleg left, with large trees protecting the left side of the fairway.
Fifteenth Hole, Par 4
This challenging short hole offers the player the choice to play safe or to try and drive the green from the tee. The safe play is to the left of a large fairway bunker guarding the right side, leaving a short approach to the elevated green. The more aggressive play is to try and carry the fairway bunker and possibly reach the green, but trees to the right of the green and a pond and bunker to the left threaten to punish any offline tee shot. The green is large and slopes heavily from back to front with an ominous deep bunker guarding the left side.
Sixteenth Hole, Par 5
A true scoring opportunity, number sixteen is a straight par five that can be reached in two shots. The fairway is wide and flat with trees lining both sides. The player faces a small green, however, that falls away on all four sides creating an even smaller target for a long approach. Pine trees situated close to the green guard the right side.
Seventeenth Hole, Par 4
Number seventeen is a long and challenging par four. The player faces trees guarding both sides of a narrow fairway. The approach shot is to another small green typical of the course’s older holes, that falls away on both sides.
Eighteenth Hole, Par 4
The final hole is a picturesque medium length doleg to the right. A Maple tree guards the corner of the dogleg on the right. A large pond runs the entire length of the Hole, and a single fairway bunker placed at the dogleg guards the left. The approach shot is to a large sloping green framed-in on both sides and from behind by large trees. A single bunker guards the front right side, making a back right pin location particularly difficult.
