Front Nine – click on the above image to take a virtual tour. A great opening hole. A dogleg right with trees all the way down the right hand side and out of bounds, this par 4 375 yard hole has a large pine tree in the middle of the fairway approximately 285 yards from the back tee that comes into play. Many people try to cut the corner to reduce the length of the hole but two large trees on the dogleg can play havoc with your second shot. A large flat green awaits the approach and par is a nice start for your round.
.A straightaway 504 yard par 5 that has out-of-bounds down the entire length of this hole. There is a pond that comes into play from a dramatic hook from a right-handed player. The second shot to the green is quite interesting with a mammoth oak tree extending out into the fairway. The goal is to stay right of this tree having a clear third shot into a three tiered green. A good iron is required on the third shot to be on the right level of the green.
Also a straightaway hole, this par 4 is reachable for the big hitters from the gold tees. Slightly downhill, there is also out of bounds for the entire length of the hole. Many players try to drive the 310 yards to have an eagle opportunity so it is considered a birdie hole. There are pine trees left and back of the green and a small mound beside it. A flat green that slopes ever so slightly away.
A slight dogleg par 5 that can give you a couple of decisions from the tee. Measuring 522 yards in length, there are large trees in the middle of the fairway in your landing area. The fairway is much wider to the right of the trees making the hole play its entire length but playing over on the left hand side makes the hole approximately 20 yards shorter but having to be much more precise with your tee shot. Once past the trees, the fairway widens quite a bit. There are slight mounds in front of the elevated green making sure your approach shot is true to get on the putting surface. A large two-tiered green awaits, lowering approximately one foot in the middle and rising once again to the back level.
A great reachable par 5. A very challenging par 4 that measures 390 yards. Once again a dogleg right, a blind tee shot through a chute makes accuracy on this hole a must. A large pond is 250 yards or so down the left hand side and trees hug the right. The hole is slightly downhill from the middle and forward tees. There are mounds on both sides of the fairway from the 100-yard marker in, with trees left and long of the green. With a good tee shot and approach, par is once again a good score on this hole.
A very tricky par 3. Measuring approximately 157 yards from the gold tees, there is a pond left of the green and an environmentally sensitivearea on the right. The green is severely sloped downwards making a tee shot long of the hole not a welcome position to be. There are also trees lined behind the green. Clubbing can be quite difficult on this hole with the wind playing havoc. Being short and having an uphill chip is quite acceptable on #6 and par is a great score here.
Probably the most difficult hole on the course. A par 4 dogleg that measures 384 yards from the back has danger aplenty. There is forest down the entire left hand side of the fairway and a tree line approximately 220 yards on the right that can severely impair your approach shot. There is also a pond that comes into play with an extreme slice from a right-hander. The right hand side of the fairway is lined with trees making your initial tee shot of the greatest importance. Laying up to the opening makes the approach into a green, which slopes away from you, extremely difficult. With your second shot, a high iron is required to stick the green, which also has a slight mound on the right hand side. With trees overhanging the green, par is considered birdie on this hole.
Next of the par 3′s. An island mote surrounds the entire green with a large mound around the entire side and back. Measuring in at 140, a mid to high iron is required. Being long or on either side of the green leaves an extremely difficultdownhill chip. Laying up short of the green and chipping on is an option on this hole to take the water out of play. Par is very acceptable after walking away from the gem.
A straightaway par 4 that is 287 from the tee. Trees hug the entire left hand side and there is a tree line approximately 200 yards down the right hand side. Also, a pond comes into play past the tree line, making the tee shot crucial. This green is drivable for the long hitter. The green crowns in the middle making virtually every putt slightly uphill when the flag is in the center of the green. A great birdie opportunity to finish off your front 9.
