A classic fairly short dogleg right Donald Ross starting hole. Keep your drive left center of fairway for your best approach to green. The mound that runs through the fairway is 245 yards from white tees. Avoid being long with your approach.

A very straight forward par three that plays from an elevated tee. Trouble looms all down left side of hole, so right center of green is your best target regardless of pin placement.

Three solid and fairly accurate shots are requigold to reach this hole in regulation. It plays even longer than the card says (586 yards) because your second shot is blind and uphill. Don’t stray too far left or right with your shots as there is trouble lurking on both sides. Take your par or bogey and move onto four.

Another classic Ross dogleg, but this one is a short and sharp dogleg left. A at the 100 yard maker in center of fairway and hit it 170-180 yards off tee for your ideal approach to green.

Plenty of room to drive the ball on this par four with OB down right side. Approach plays slightly uphill to our most difficult green on the course. Pay attention to pin placement before hitting approach for best chance to be successful on this green.

Ideal drive is left center of fairway 180-200 yards. Long hitters can try to drive the hole, but it narrows as you get closer to the green. A classic risk reward hole, but a good opportunity for birdies and pars for most players either way.

This is our only “forced carry” hole. It is 140 yards to carry the wetlands, but the ideal tee shot is 165-180-yards. This will leave you with a fairly easy approach to a very receptive green.

A difficult par five that puts a premium on accuracy. You must keep your drive and second shots left center in order to have your best approach to green. Take enough club with your approach shot because it plays uphill to a “false front” green.

Hole 13
Par 4
Handicap: Men 6, Women 10

409

A good par four slight dogleg left hole that also plays slightly downhill. Keep your drive and second shot left center. A tricky little green that makes for a tough two putt.

143

Our longest par three that is also the largest green on the course. You must carry the green with your tee shot to reach because it is an elevated green. Left and or long spells trouble on this hole.

The final of our challenging par fives. Three very good shots will be needed to make birdies or pars on this hole. Favor right center with all three shots. Bogey is not a bad score for most on this difficult, but also fair and picturesque hole.

Hole 16
Par 4
Handicap: Men 12, Women 4

The ideal distance for your tee shot is 200-220 yards. Not much room to miss your tee ball left or right, so give up a little distance to be sure to hit it straight. Must keep approach below the hole to avoid a possible three putt.

02
Hole 17
Par 4
Handicap: Men 18, Women 18

345
33
268
231

Driveable par four if you can hit it 240 plus yards. If not, the play is right center of fairway 160-180 yard tee shot. Either way this is a birdie hole for many players.

Hole 18

A beautiful finishing hole. Driving the ball over the road will leave you your best approach to this difficult green. Pay attention to the pin location in order to leave yourself an opportunity for a possible one or two putt. Left center with your drive is ideal.
