Hole By Hole

 

Hole 1


Hole 1 Layout

Hole #1

Straight away and not too long, the key here is to keep your drive in the fairway. For your second shot, keep it on the green and under the hole.

Hole 2

Hole #2

Being on the fairway here is a must. If you try to cut the corner, you will likely find yourself blocked by trees on the left and wishing you had just staid straight. Once you make it to the green, be aware that it is a little raised. In addition, you will usually be playing this hole downwind. As a result, it can be tough to accurately judge the distance of your approach.

Hole 3

Hole #3

This hole always plays longer than the yardage. Make sure you bring more club than you think you need to approach the green.

Hole 4

Hole #4

Longer hitters will easily reach the green. If you are almost there, do not stress your game. Rather, hit something comfortable because the bunkers can make it a narrow fairway to hit to. Once you do, pitch onto the green and try to make a birdie.

Hole 5


Hole 5 Layout

Hole #5

This hole is harder than the yardage indicates. Long hitters can get near the green, but for everyone else, the fairway will kick your ball to the bottom of the hill. From there, you will be left with an uphill pitch over a bunker to a green you cannot see.

Hole 6


Hole 6 Layout

Hole #6

This hole is long, and requires you put your ball in the fairway. Longer hitters be aware that you can quickly run out of fairway and you will be left with hitting over trees at the corner. The green is relatively unprotected and it is only raised a few feet from the fairway. This allows for run-up shots if necessary.

Hole 7

Hole #7

With prevailing wind, this hole generally plays longer. The green is narrow and deep so club selection important, but direction will be the essential factor.

Hole 8


Hole 8 Layout

Hole #8

The tee shot often looks narrower than it really is. Even if you hit the fairway, it is no guarantee you will be able to reach the green in two shots. For most players, placing the ball on the fairway still leaves them with a crucial third shot. Birdies are hard to come by playing from the left rough or right trees.

Hole 9


Hole 9 Layout

Hole #9

Another par 3 with a deep green. With wind, club selection can vary by as much as four clubs. OB left and long, bunkers right (with OB if you go too far right). This hole will prove far easier if you have control of your irons.

Hole 10


Hole 10 Layout

Hole #10

With the driving range on the right, and OB there as well, this hole looks narrow. However, if you can make a good swing and get the ball somewhere in play, you will easily advance the ball into a generous layup area. When in doubt, the front of the green is easier than going over the back.

Hole 11

Hole #11

This is both the shortest hole and the smallest green of the course. These distinctions make it all the more necessary to select the correct club. If you are not quite sure where to play, favor the wider left side of the green to avoid the bunker.

Hole 12


Hole 12 Layout

Hole #12

Most players will lay up short of the channel that divides this hole. Know that the more to the right you go, the more space you have to drive to. The green is essentially unprotected, allowing run-up shots if you need to.

Hole 13


Hole 13 Layout

Hole #13

A short par 3 where club selection is key.

Hole 14


Hole 14 Layout

Hole #14

The fairway bends to the right. It's important to not cut the corner as OB lays just beyond (plus, golfers playing #12 may be a factor). Though helpful, the trees to the left block the wind, but that also makes it difficult when trying to judge winds as you approach the green.

Hole 15


Hole 15 Layout

Hole #15

First thing is first: you have to get over the ditch. Anything to the right of the bunker is usually good. If you go right, it shortens the carry required on your tee shot. Laying up to the right is hard (it is probably the hardest shot of the hole), but while the fairway is narrow and firm, the bunker to the left is generally a good target (stay short, if you can). The green is fairly large and receptive to players going in for two shots.

Hole 16


Hole 16 Layout

Hole #16

This is a long par 3 with tricky slopes from above the hole. However, if you stay away from the front right of the green, pitches and chips get easier.

Hole 17


Hole 17 Layout

Hole #17

The fairway is a little narrower than most, but that is no excuse for missing it. It is a straightforward green that will yield to a well planned, and well played, putt.

Hole 18


Hole 18 Layout

Hole #18

Do not let the yardage fool you. At 500 yards, this hole plays into the wind and certainly plays long. Your second shot must be kept to the left of the fairway if you want the front bunker to be easier to negotiate. Be aware that the green is raised and not very large.
