Hole #1

Image

Opening with a par five gets the traffic moving. Bunkers at the green allow a bounce-in approach. The gracious space and beautiful setting starts your round off just right!

Hole #2

Image

This par four tee shot features a classic turn-of-the-century carry bunker telling the player that the right side of the fairway is preferable. The fairway width in the approach to the green is friendly and will allow incoming shots to roll onto the green if they have enough steam.

Hole #3

Image

This spectacular par four tee shot plays against a rising slope to the right and a winding fairway line on the left established by a new timber wall. Even the best tee shots leave the player with an uphill middle iron to a green protected on the left by a pot bunker and a very steep slope.

Hole #4

Image

With the squared tees, an approach fairway on the right and a small turn-of-the-century bunker on the left, the opening par three is a delicate test especially to a front left-hole location.

Hole #5

Image

This par five lived its early life in controversy with a lone pine in the fairway and essentially target golf as a motif. New tees allow players to drive the ball closer to the end of the first portion of fairway where they have a real chance of being able to carry the second creek to the second landing area

Hole #6

Image

This stout par four is a slight dogleg to the right around a stand of hardwoods. It is a pastoral place and the peace it imparts belies the task at hand to get the ball on the green with middle or short iron.

Hole #7

Image

The gentle shapes around the green create support of the back collar in spots and none whatsoever in others. The hole location of the day on this par three paired with the tee selected create shots that range from "Birdie Chance" to "Survival". This hole has a chance to play differently for months at a time.

Hole #8

Image

A section of the fairway on this par four between the landing area and Big Creek is now playable in all but the wettest weather. Miss a tee shot, you can lay up to a position that will give an excellent chance of reaching the green, with a chance to get it close - possibly to save par.

Hole #9

Image

A stand of young hardwoods lines the right side of the fairway of this par four. The best strategy is to play along the trees on the right in order to gain the best angle to the green, guarded on the left by two bunkers. The approach is a short iron for most.

Hole #10

Image

An intermediate deck tee, accessed from the long environmental deck walkway, allows players to reach the fairway and play the hole as a dogleg right. The tee shot should play as tight to the corner of the turn as possible to gain the best angle to the green on this par four.

Hole #11

Image

This is a rather mythical par three, with a very complex series of creeks and rivulets flowing in front of and to the left of the green. A single bunker in the back defines the green while in the front, a series of iconic footbridges, small stone steps and moving water all say "turn-of-the-century".

Hole #12

Image

This is an excellent par five, straightaway and a great view from the tees. The challenge here is to move the ball as close to the green as possible in order to master the green. The fairway and primary cut of rough allows some flexibility in placement.

Hole #13

Image

This very short par four is drivable for some, a sharp dogleg left across a vast native area. For most, it requires a well-placed drive aimed at the target bunkers on the far side of the fairway. The right one is straightaway. The left places the player much closer to the green but with a longer carry off the tee.

Hole #14

Image

Moving into more rugged terrain, this par four makes different demands. The shape of the landing area and surrounding trees indicate the hole turns to the left. Aim at the center of the fairway, and then a short iron to the green.

Hole #15

Image

This adventurous par five plays out of a chute of trees to a fairway turning gently to the right, a solidly hit tee shot is important. A creek crosses in front of the tees and down the right side of the hole, winding back and forth across the second landing area, turning abruptly across the front of the green.

Hole #16

Image

This par three continues along the creek but the challenge is clearly defined winding along the right side of the green. There are no bunkers and the green is hard by the creek. The challenge is clear.

Hole #17

Image

This strong par four has all of the earmarks of the turn-of-the-century era. A fairway bunker on the left tells the player to favor that side, because a bunker at the green is on the right. Tactically, the last two holes are a stern test that can make or break a round.

Hole #18

Image

The par four tee shot is dramatic, across a depression to a fairway that turns gently to the right around two bunkers. The shot to the green is unique with one bunker on the right front but with gentle forms around the green, large trees and an expanse of open space on the immediate horizon.
