The first hole is a dog-leg right par four with a creek that crosses the fairway about 125 yards from the green. Ideal play tee shot is a fairway wood right of the fairway bunker leaving a mid iron to an uphill green surrounded by two bunkers, water and out of bounds left.
This next dog-leg left par four requires a drive favoring the right side of the fairway to avoid the pond on the left. A good drive will leave a short-to-mid iron to a deep two-tiered green. Be sure to check the hole location here.
Number three is a mid-length par three that requires a solid shot due to the water short and right and the two bunkers guarding the green. Check the hole location and trust the yardage.
The fourth hole is a short dog-leg left par four requiring a long iron off the tee to avoid the bunker right and the rough left. The second shot is a short iron to a large green. This is a good chance at birdie.
Hole five is a long par five that requires a solid drive left of the fairway bunker. With help from the prevailing wind, long hitters can reach the green in two. For others, the second shot leaves no room for error with bunkers on the right and water on the left. A precise third will leave a good chance at birdie.
The par three sixth hole is another medium length hole requiring a solid shot to the middle of the green to set up a par. Greed on this hole can lead to high score.
The seventh hole is a straight away par four. If you avoid the fairway bunkers off the tee, you will be rewarded with a short shot to a very difficult green. Hole placement determines your score on this hole.
Number eight is another difficult par four featuring a dog-leg right that runs parallel to the wetlands and crossing another creek. The tee shot here requires precision to miss the fairway bunker and hazards. Your second shot will be a short to mid iron into a very sloped green. Be sure to stay below the hole here.
The last hole on the front side is a par five that can yield a birdie with an accurate tee shot. If you are fortunate enough to miss the fairway bunker and two ponds on the left, you will be left with a straight forward lay-up to a generous fairway. With wedge in hand, you can attack this flag and finish with a four.
The first of two difficult par fives on the second nine, number ten is also the longest hole on the golf course. Almost never reachable in two, a solid drive followed by a solid long iron, will leave a difficult third shot over the creek and between the trees to a deep and sloping green. Par is a good score here.
Number eleven is a very good par three that will require a solid tee shot to a narrow green. The prevailing crosswind will make this hole even harder.
The par four twelfth hole requires a very accurate tee shot just left of the fairway bunkers. Doing this will leave you with a medium length second shot to an elevated green. Take an extra club and trust it.
Hole thirteen is short narrow par four that favors accuracy rather than length. A tree lined fairway may make you put that driver back and pull out an iron. If you are lucky enough to find the fairway, a short second to the green leaves a good opportunity for birdie.
The fourteenth hole is a long, straight away par four with an elevated landing area off the tee concealing the fairway bunker on the left. A good drive will leave a mid-iron to difficult green that falls off the back and both sides.
Number fifteen is the longest and hardest par three on the golf course. With the prevailing wind coming from the right and hurting, any ball on the green is a good shot. Get your par and get out.
Sixteen is a short par four that can lead to a birdie if your tee shot misses the two fairway bunkers and water on the right. An elevated green makes the second shot a little more difficult, but get your yardage and trust it.
Hole seventeen is a difficult hole with an even harder green complex. Laying up off the tee is the preferred play in order to miss the ponds left and right and stay short of the creek that crosses at the 150 yard marker. Be sure to check the hole location and stay below the hole on your second shot. Avoiding a three putt on this hole is difficult.
With the eighteenth hole being a par five, you may be thinking of ending your day with a birdie. Well, think again. After a solid tee shot, you will still be left with a demanding second shot to avoid the pond on the left and the trees on the right. Your approach must again avoid water short and right to have any chance at par.
