Hole # 1, Par 4 - Looking back towards the Tee Blocks
This demanding 351 yard opening hole, requires golfer's to calm their nerves. An accurate shot off the tee is a must if you want to leave yourself within 140 yards. Long hitters may elect to cut the corner, but the margin for error is very slim. It's not rated the toughest hole on the course for no reason, so be ready.
A straight 170 yard tee shot will leave you with a short iron approach. The kidney shaped green is protected by thick brush on either side, so it is crucial to play a controlled, conservative second shot. Don't be fooled by the course rating, as this hole can play much harder than it looks. For long hitters, iron off the tee is a must if you plan on keeping a snowman off your card.
The only Par 5 on the course measures in at 511 yards from the back tees. A well struck first tee shot can give longer hitters the choice to attack the green in two. The wide fairway changes the pace of the game thus far, giving golfers a chance to tee it high and let it fly. Be aware of the fescue patch located 75 yds out, as first time players may find themselves with an unexpected lie.
Rated as the 3rd easiest hole on the course, the par 3, fourth gives golfers of every level the chance to make par. The holding pond on the left leaves golfers wanting to miss right. Over compensating this risk may leave you with a quick, challenging second chip shot. Be aware of the shape of the green as you may find yourself scrambling to make par.
Hole 5 gives golfers another chance to tee up the big stick. The 374 yard hole demands distance and accuracy from the back tees. A well struck tee shot would leave you just over 100 yards into one of our smallest greens. The combination makes this the fourth hardest hole on the course.
One of the shorter par 4's on the course earns it's rating as the 5th hardest hole. The tight fairway demands a straight tee shot. We advise you stick with your most trusted club even though long hitters may elect to go for the green from the tee. Missing this fairway may cost your scorecard, so be sure.
Another driveable par 4 gives golfers of all levels a chance to make birdie. The 255 yard hole offers a risk/reward approach. Going for the green can leave a short pitch for your second shot, but hitting it long could prove devastating. The fescue behind the green can quickly leave you scoring a bogey or worse.
Possibly the toughest hole on the course, this 326 yard uphill hole can often make or break your round. For those long hitters, driver may not be the smartest choice, as the tight landing area on the upper level requires a perfect drive. The safe shot leaves yourself inside the 150yd marker but with a blind approach. Making par on this hole is a win for any golfer in my opinion.
The final hole plays short, but the raised green will prove more difficult than it appears. Our second largest green on the course offers golfers the room to stick it, but a low shot often ends up over the back. Don't be surprised if you're scrambling for par.
