Championship Yardage: 412 | Handicap: 5
A great starting hole. With a good drive, the average player will have a mid iron to the green and better players will have a wedge. The green is slightly elevated, leaving a pitch up to it for approach shots left short. Those hitting it long will face a delicate downhill chip with the hazard of rolling off the front. Bunkers on the right and left guard the small, fast, relatively flat green.
Championship Yardage: 139 | Handicap: 17
From tee to green there’s about a 40-foot elevation drop. A nine iron or wedge will work for most players from the white tees, with one more club needed from the championship tees. The green slopes deceivingly front to back, making putting difficult. Those missing the green are likely looking at a bogey since bunkers on the left and right make it difficult to get up and down.
Championship Yardage: 491 | Handicap: 7
From the tee box there is water to the right and O.B. on the left. There’s also a large hill with trees on the right, so shots in that direction could be in serious trouble. The second shot is over a sizable lake to an elevated fairway and green. Because of the slope, players must fly the ball to the green since anything short will funnel back to the fairway Subtle undulations and slopes on this fast green make putting tricky.
Championship Yardage: 197 | Handicap: 11
A very challenging par 3, which starts with a long iron shot to a narrow green that slopes back to front with bunkers flanking it. The green is built up and unforgiving of pushed or pulled shots. Trees surrounding the sides and back of the green come into play.
Championship Yardage: 295 | Handicap: 15
A tight, short hole which allows the longer hitters to go for the green, while most will lay-up in the fairway. There’s water beyond O.B. on the left. Trees line the right with a large pine encroaching on the corner of this two-tiered green. A tall beech tree on the left and another large oak by the green could also interfere with approach shots, which, depending on choice of club off the tee, could vary from a flip sand wedge to a 7 iron.
Championship Yardage: 482 | Handicap: 13
The tee shot is slightly uphill to a blind landing areas where the fairway slopes left to right and forms a slight gully. Pine trees line the left and right side from the top of the hill. The second shot is often a sidehill lie to a narrowing landing area, protected by trees on both sides. The small, flat green, which slopes front to back and drops off severely long and right, is protected by grass mounds on the sides.
Championship Yardage: 395 | Handicap: 3
The first obstacle is hitting a straight drive. Players should aim for the left side of this narrow fairway because the green is set back to the right. Large trees lining the right side force players to work their shot toward pins on the right. A mid iron gets most players to the green. Long drives that run through the fairway will end up in deep, sloping rough.
Championship Yardage: 450 | Handicap: 1
The drive is a blind shot to a landing area that slopes right to left toward a line of pine trees. A good drive will find most players on a slight side hill lie, hitting to a green that slopes back to front. A lake sitting front right and three bunkers to the left will test even the best players’ accuracy and nerve.
Championship Yardage: 333 | Handicap: 9
This dogleg right is a challenge, with trees lining both sides of the fairway, leading to an elevated green. Because of the elevation change, approach shots hit short will either be caught in the bunker on the right or rolling mounds to the left. This recently rebuilt green is basically flat.
Championship Yardage: 226 | Handicap: 10
Tee is positioned on an elevated ledge, overlooking the green that sits in the valley below. Low-handicap players will find the hole more challenging from the back tee on a even higher ledge. Water and a bunker guard this back-to-front sloping green to the left, with another bunker to the right. Trees right and long can come into play.
Championship Yardage; 394 | Handicap: 2
The fairway of this slight dogleg right is tree lined on both sides with O.B. beyond the trees on the left. Those finding the fairway and avoiding the pines have a second shot is to a large green which slopes back to front and penalizes short pitch shots. Deep bunkers flank the right and left sides.
Championship Yardage: 342 | Handicap: 12
A creek cuts across the middle of the fairway, making this a “risk/reward” hole. Long hitters will likely drive across the creek and then hit a sand wedge to the green. Average players lay up with a fairway wood then hit a mid iron to the slightly elevated green which is fairly level and surrounded by three deep, greenside bunkers.
Championship Yardage: 202 | Handicap: 14
The same creek running across 12 separates the tee and green. The bunkers are large and difficult to avoid, surrounding a green that slopes dramatically from back to front. This makes putting treacherous.
Championship Yardage: 469 | Handicap: 8
Most players try to cut this dogleg to the right. However, tee shots must be high enough to clear the pine trees on the corner. The second shot will likely be from an uneven lie since there is a significant elevation change from the fairway to the elevated green. Trees line both sides of the fairway with O.B. to the left. The green is guarded by a bunker on the right and a bunker and large pine short left. The green is reachable in two for the long hitters. Average players will still have good birdie opportunities.
Championship Yardage: 505 | Handicap: 6
The tee shot on this, the longest hole on the course, is to an uphill landing area. Longer hitters who drive over the crest of the hill will be tempted to go for the green in two. The second shot is a slight dogleg left to a wide fairway flanked by trees. There’s a gully in front of the green and deep bunkers on both sides, making a tough third shot to the long, narrow and fairly-level green.
Championship Yardage: 436 | Handicap: 16
This hole has one of the widest fairways on the course and players can see the green from the tee. There is a slight downhill slope in the landing area that could allow some extra roll. The second shot is difficult because of the small back to front sloping green that sits on a shelf. A deep bunker on the right can save long shots from feeding down a steep slope.
Championship Yardage: 350 | Handicap: 18
From tee to green, there is a drastic elevation change, allowing for some extra driving distance off the tee. Pine trees border the left and right sides. Better players will be hitting a sand wedge to the green while the average gofer can expect to hit a mid iron. Four bunkers guard the front of a green that slopes back to front and left to right, with pine trees coming in to play behind.
Championship Yardage: 381 | Handicap: 4
A challenging finishing hole. Players hit off an elevated tee onto a narrow fairway flanked with pine trees on the left and right. The fairway slopes right to left, creating a slightly sidehill lie. An elevated, three-tiered green penalizes players who hit it short and also makes putting hazardous. Three bunkers, two on the right and a deep one of the left guard the putting surface.
