Hole

Hole #1

The first hole presents a short and easy par 4 if you’re able to avoid the fairway and greenside bunkers.
 
X
1

Hole #2

Another short par 4 with a troublesome fairway bunker, the key to the second shot on Hole 2 is paying attention to the hole location on the large green.

Hole #3

The third hole is a challenging par 4 with a long, tree-lined fairway. Your second shot will likely come up short, even with the downhill advantage. Keep the O.B. left of the green in mind as well.

3

Hole #4

Watch your alignment on this tree-lined, uphill par 4—tee shots on the fourth hole are usually lost to the right.

4

Hole #5

Hole 5 features two distinct set-ups on this par 3: a soft downhill shot to a large green, or a longer uphill shot with wind playing a major role.

Hole #6

The longest par 4 on the course, Hole 6 requires long shots and caution when regarding the difficult bunker short and right of the green.

Hole #7

Make sure to avoid the grass bunkers at the dogleg on the par 4 seventh hole as the O.B. left can come into play very easily.

Hole #8

Hole 8 is a par 4 that requires immense accuracy as a tee shot too far to the left can land you in heavy rough or thick trees. The second shot requires less club as you play downhill, but be careful not to get above the hole.

Hole #9

The ninth hole finally presents a breather on the fairway, but don’t let your guard down on the downhill putt to the large, sloping green with bunkers on multiple sides of this par 5.

Hole #10

While the fairway on Hole 10 is a little shorter, you’ll still need to watch out for trees, rough, and side-hill lies on this par 4. The second shot is downhill, but it’s all carry.

10

Hole #11

On the par 4 eleventh hole, fade is a must from the tee to shorten the hole. Sloping severely from left to right, this is the toughest green on the course.
 
X

Hole #12

The twelfth hole can be an easy par 3 if you avoid the bunkers.
 
X
12

Hole #13

The secret on this hole is getting the tee shot up the hill and avoiding the trees on the right.
 
X
13

Hole #14

Fair warning: the entire left side of Hole 14 is out-of-bounds. A draw off the tee is needed to stay on the fairway with this par 5.
 
X
14

Hole #15

On this hole, left is out-of-bounds, and to the right there are large trees which tighten the landing area about 190 yards off the tee. The downhill second shot is all carry, so make sure not to miss the left-veering green.
 
X
15

Hole #16

This hole presents an uphill tee shot, experiences strong wind influences, and has a surprisingly deep green.
 
X
16

Hole #17

For the par 5 seventeenth hole, a tee shot favoring the right side of the fairway will help you avoid the bamboo on the left. You’ll find trouble at the greenside bunker and above the hole.
 
X
17

Hole #18

The fairway on the final hole slopes toward the right and the collection bunker. The subsequent uphill shots may require some extra work to carry the bunker and reach the hole on this par 4.
