Often misunderstood, but a quick start to your round. Requires a solid tee shot with a club that will leave you no less than 155 yards to the green. Hit it farther and you may go in the water. Second shot to an open green guarded by bunkers right and back left.
Fairly open tee shot. The decision is on the second shot to go for it or not. Many bunkers guard the green. You may be better off laying up to your favorite yardage and wedging it close for your birdie putt.
Tee shot dictates how the hole is played. Long down the left (220 from the Black Tees) leaves you a short wedge to an open green but bring the water into play. Or short down the right (175 from the Black Tees) leaves a longer approach carrying the water hazard and greenside bunkers. Either way you have to deal with the hazard.
Be sure to take enough club. This hole is into the predominate wind and plays the entire yardage. A solid shot is a must off the tee. Any mishit tee shot will most likely end up in the water. Favor the left side of the green. A 3 is a great score here.
Wide open fairway. Favor the left side off the tee, the wind should move your ball to the right a little. Second shot to a well guarded green by bunkers requires the right yardage. Pick your club and trust it. Middle of the green leaves a good birdie putt.
Usually down wind, the long hitters have the option to go for it in two with a good tee shot. Green is guarded by two bunkers front left. Be sure to be on the right level of the green to make the putt.
A short Drivable Par 4 for the long hitters. Shorter hitter should lay back to their favorite yardage for a short wedge. This is a hole you can make a birdie on.
This Par 3 is a fun hole. The crosswind is the main factor when playing the hole. Be sure to hit enough club. All shots falling short of the green may roll back into the water. Par is a good score here.
Play 240 down the left side off the tee, but don’t try to hook it. This tee shot will leave a longer approach shot of 170 yards, but a good angle to the green. This green has many contours to it. If you are in the right area of the pin birdie can be had, however Par is always a great score on #9.
Aim at the fairway bunker and hit it 225 yards. This will leave 125 in to an open green in the front. Second shot plays a little uphill and into the predominate wind so take a little extra club. Keep it below the hole and your odds of making the putt increase.
Usually plays down wind. The trees behind the tees tend to block the wind so don’t let the calm of the tee fool you. Look at the tops of the trees and pull the right club. Subtle breaks on the green make it tough to read.
Uphill Par 4 demands a solid tee shot favoring the right side of the fairway. Fairway slants to the left. This is the only green on the course without any bunkers, as well as the flattest green on the course. Play half the break you see and don’t be short.
What a demanding Par 5. Miss the fairway bunkers off the tee and with your second shot should leave you with a chance to make birdie. Be sure to be a little right and short of the hole for the best chance to make the putt.
Left center of the fairway is a good line off the tee opening up for your approach to the green. Bunkers guard both sides of the green. Once again keep it below the hole for your best chance at birdie.
The cross wind from the right will tend to move your ball to the left a little more then you think. However, you don’t want to miss to the right so aim at the hole not right of the green.
Tough hole that requires a solid tee shot leaving yourself a mid to short iron to the depending on the prevailing wind. Keep it out of the bunkers and below the pin for your best chance at birdie.
This is one of my favorite holes on the course. A long iron or fairway wood of the tee will leave a short iron into a small green. Hit the middle of green and you have a short putt for birdie so don’t be greedy.
A good drive down the left side allows the long hitter a chance to get home in two. Players laying up should aim right of the left bunker at the last bend, leaving yourself 125 yards to the green. This shot plays slightly uphill so be sure to take enough club.
