The first par 3 of the course is best approached with a mid-iron to a well-protected, elevated green that slopes away from the tee. This hole usually plays into the prevailing wind, and with two bunkers guarding the front of the green, you’ll want to take an extra club.
Another tight uphill play, the sixth hole’s O.B. left requires a long and accurate tee shot in order to reach the green in two. Be careful not to go long on the approach, or you’ll have an extremely difficult chip shot back to the green.
The last two holes of the front nine prove difficult, starting with this par 4 that requires you to veer right off the tee to avoid the O.B. left. The hole is more forgiving from there with a downhill approach to the green that plays to the yardage.
A difficult uphill par 4, the eleventh hold requires at least one extra club to hit the green, which is one of the most undulated of the course, making club selection that much more crucial. To compensate for this challenging hole, you can turn around at the green for another stunning view of the bridge.
The toughest par 4 on the course, Hole 14 requires a long, straight drive to reach the green. The approach to this two-tiered green is extremely difficult as it features severe drops on the front and right.
After surviving the fourteenth hole, catch your breath on this short par 5 with great birdie potential. Unless you’re a particularly skilled long hitter, pull out the driver to reach the fairway bunkers. A solid drive will offer a long iron to an unprotected green.
