Hole #1Start the game off with a tough tee shot that has O.B. left and right. Fairway bunkers come into play off the tee and on the second shot. The green is undulated with bunkers protecting each side. This is not a par 5 to think about hitting in two—it takes three precise shots to come away with par.
Hole #3Hole 3 is a short dogleg left with O.B. down the left side, all the way to the hole. Take a fairway wood or long iron off the tee to hit the narrow fairway guarded by bunkers on each side. This green is also protected by bunkers on all sides and has both subtle and severe undulations throughout.
Hole #4One of the most challenging holes on the course, this long par 4 takes an accurate tee shot and a long iron to hit this expansive green guarded by three bunkers. This hole has O.B. all the way down the left and beyond the green. The second shot can be tricky on this hole as a strong gust of wind could push your second shot long and O.B.
Hole #9On this risk/reward par 5, big hitters can reach the green in two, but it takes a good second shot to a long, narrow green over water. Watch out for O.B. all the way down the right side and fairway bunkers that alter your tee strategy. There’s also a hazard on the left that comes into play when laying up on your second shot. Don’t think about hitting it long over the green; unless you hit it in one of the three bunkers, you’ll find yourself O.B.
Hole #13On the signature thirteenth hole, you’ll encounter a double dogleg right that plays uphill on the second and third shots. The tee shot has O.B. right and bunkers left. The second and third shots are up a tight fairway with trees lining both sides. The long, narrow green is well-protected by bunkers on three sides and has a huge uphill swing in the middle.
