HOLE NO. 1 (BLUE TEES) & 10 (WHITE TEES)
Men’s Tees (blue/white) 381 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 362 yards
A straight par 4. Aim on a line halfway between the tree line on the left and the pine tree on the right near the top of the driving range. A water hazard (pond) awaits on the left side about 240 yards out. The green is guarded by a creek just right of the fast, sloped green. Stay below the hole for best results.
HOLE NO. 2 (BLUE TEES) & 11 (WHITE TEES)
Men’s Tees (blue/white) 156 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 141 yards
Trouble lurks on all sides on this par 3. Bunkers left and front, water hazards left and rear, out of bounds to the right. Club selection and accuracy are a premium here.
HOLE NO. 3 (BLUE TEES) & 12 (WHITE TEES)
Men’s Tees (blue/white) 444 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 405 yards
A dogleg left par 5 requiring an uphill second shot. A tee shot of about 220 yards up the right side affords a good level position for the second shot over the hill. Please be sure to check that players ahead are clear before hitting over the hill. Aim the shot over the hill at the tallest fir tree tip on the east horizon.
HOLE NO. 4 (BLUE TEES) & 13 (WHITE TEES)
Men’s Tees (blue/white) 485 yards
Women’s Tees No. 4 (red) 444 yards - Par 5
Women’s Tees No. 13 (red) 352 yards - Par 4
A sharp dogleg left that is over 270 yards to the “corner.” A drive just left of the large pine on the right will open up a good angle for the second shot, even though slightly longer than the left side line. A warning- stay below the hole on this severely back to front sloped green. Water hazard left side all the way to the green.
HOLE NO. 5 (BLUE TEES) & 14 (WHITE TEES)
Men’s Tees (blue/white) 290 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 275 yards
This short par 4 demands an accurate right to left tee shot of about 225 yards to avoid the fairway bunkers. The two-level green slopes away from the player on the approach shot. Out of bounds left.
HOLE NO. 6 (BLUE TEES) & 15 (WHITE TEES)
Men’s Tees (blue/white) 248 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 240 yards
A reachable par 4 for many players at 245 yards. Please wait for players to putt out if you are going for the well bunkered green off the tee! A safer alternative is to lay up at about 200 yards off the tee. Out of bounds left tee to green.
HOLE NOS. 7 AND 16
Hole No. 7 (blue tees)
Men’s Tees (blue) 141 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 128 yards
This is the green visible just across the canyon with the sand bunker in front. Hit from the white tees to #16 green (141yards).
Hole No. 16 (white tees)
Men’s Tees (white) 203 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 190 yards
From the blue tees, hit to the far green (203 yards). Do not hit to the green visible just across the canyon, this is #7. #16 green is left of that green and the flag is just visible over the ridge. Trouble lurks left and behind this elevated green. DO NOT hit to #16 green while #7 green is occupied.
HOLE NO. 8 (BLUE TEES) & 17 (WHITE TEES)
Men’s Tees (blue/white) 328 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 319 yards
A straight away downhill par 4. The green slopes away from the player on the approach shot and is bordered on the left and rear by a deep bunker.
HOLE NOS. 9 AND 18
These holes have separate greens (like #7 & #16) but have separate teeing grounds:
Hole No. 9 (blue tees)
Men’s Tees (blue) 177 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 175 yards
From the blue tees hit to the green on the left (177 yards). A steep bank off the left edge and trees to the right put a premium on accuracy for the shot into a small green.
Hole No. 18 (white tees)
Men’s Tees (white) 273 yards
Women’s Tees (red) 227 yards
From the white tees (elevated tee behind blue tees) hit to the green on the right (273 yards). The front and flanks of the green approach are heavily bunkered so a 200 yard tee shot is advised to avoid trouble. If you are going for the green off the tee please wait for the 18th green to clear before teeing off. NEVER hit to #18 if #9 green (on left) is occupied.
