Golf: Hole-by-Hole Descriptions
Hole 1 - Par 4BACK TO PRESS KIT
Black 425 Blue 405 Green 380 White 360 Red 335
Take aim at the left-side fairway bunker off the tee. Cutting the dogleg does not pay. The approach into the green should favor the left side, to avoid the hazard along the right.
Hole 2 - Par 3
Black 253 Blue 180 Green 160 White 122 Red 92
Favor the left side of the green at this picturesque setting. Pin placement and wind conditions dictate the choice of club. Be aware of the hazard on the right side.
Hole 3 - Par 5
Black 605 Blue 565 Green 529 White 505 Red 464
A solid, three-shot test for every level of player. Finding the left side of the fairway is a great start, with the second shot played to the right, away from the meandering creek. The approach must carry to the front edge of the green to avoid trouble.
Hole 4 - Par 4
Black 407 Blue 394 Green 374 White 358 Red 325
Take dead aim at the left side fairway bunker. Long hitters would be wise to lay up with a fairway wood off the tee. Room on the right side of the green allows for a safe second shot.
Hole 5 - Par 4
Black 497 Blue 440 Green 418 White 373 Red 356
This dogleg right is the No. 1 handicap hole. The left side of the fairway sets up the preferred approach, which is best played to the left side of the green complex, which runs the right.
Hole 6 - Par 5
Black 540 Blue 520 Green 500 White 480 Red 454
Fairway bunkers provide a target off the tee. The green is reachable in two, but a stream runs along the left of the green. A layup along the left leaves a short iron into a receptive green.
Hole 7 - Par 3
Black 210 Blue 188 Green 165 White 143 Red 118
Depending on the wind, this downhill shot usually plays one or two clubs shorter. Club selection is important, with disaster waiting on the back side of this green.
Hole 8 - Par 4
Black 358 Blue 325 Green 295 White 287 Red 262
A long iron or fairway wood to the left-center of the fairway is the best bet. The approach can be played into the “backboard” on this green, which slopes decidedly from back to front.
Hole 9 - Par 4
Black 425 Blue 410 Green 397 White 375 Red 340
This double fairway requires a decision on the tee. The left side is the safer play. It is a gamble to play up the right side, but the reward is a shorter approach and better angle to the green.
FRONT - Par 36 - Black 3720 Blue 3427 Green 3218 White 3003 Red 2746
Hole 10 - Par 4
Black 422 Blue 404 Green 384 White 365 Red 331
While the wide fairway is inviting off the tee, the approach to the green is more tactical. The ideal play is to the left edge of the sloping green, which pulls everything to the right.
Hole 11 - Par 4
Black 434 Blue 390 Green 360 White 340 Red 291
This narrow fairway requires a drive toward the left fairway bunker, with the optimum placement being the left-center. With front right bunkers, the green is approachable from left side.
Hole 12 - Par 3
Black 230 Blue 195 Green 193 White 163 Red 106
Playing downhill, the tee shot depends a lot on the wind. Club selection is essential, to avoid missing the green. Playing to the right side of the green can take advantage of the slope.
Hole 13 - Par 4
Black 418 Blue 382 Green 366 White 346 Red 317
Avoiding the grass bunker on the right side of the landing area is essential. An uphill approach must steer clear of a menacing bunker on the front-left of the green, which offers an opening on the right.
Hole 14 - Par 4
Black 457 Blue 429 Green 429 White 390 Red 328
This dogleg left rewards accuracy more than distance. The fairway curls to the left of the fairway bunker, which is in range off the tee. The approach must carry to the front slope of the green.
Hole 15 - Par 5
Black 480 Blue 460 Green 418 White 405 Red 374
Reachable in two, start with a tee shot toward the left side, which still leaves a demanding second shot to the green. The ideal line into the green is to the right, staying clear of large front bunkers.
Hole 16 - Par 3
Black 166 Blue 148 Green 148 White 127 Red 105
Tightly guarded with a cluster of bunkers, the green’s narrow right-side opening requires accuracy from the tee. Winds currents can complicate, or simplify, the results from the tee.
Hole 17 - Par 4
Black 478 Blue 449 Green 420 White 390 Red 358
Set up perfectly for a left-to-right tee shot, the safe play is toward the left fairway bunker, away from the hazard running along the right. This tiered green is open on the left and drifts to the right
Hole 18 - Par 5
Black 555 Blue 526 Green 504 White 481 Red 429
A long tee shot that avoids the crossing creek can set up getting home in two, to a green that slides to the left. The safer second shot is down the right side, staying away from the pond.
