Hole #1The opening hole at Lake Forest Golf Course is a short par 3 with a large greenside bunker set in front of the green and beautiful Aliso Creek running down the entire left side of the hole. Along the right side of the fairway are the sweet-smelling vestiges of the orange grove that used to dominate this hidden meadowland.
Hole #4The fourth hole is short and simple-looking; however, in this case, appearances are deceiving. The long, narrow green slants right toward Aliso Creek. The steep bank of the creek is merely eight paces from the center of the green and wraps tightly around the back apron. Use caution when hitting for the green!
Hole #5A tricky par 4, certainly the definitive risk/reward tee shot. It is possible to reach the green with a well-placed drive, but a miss in any direction can lead to trouble. There is a large lake along the left side of the fairway and guarding the front of the green, and another hidden lake waiting for balls that miss to the right. Finally, just a few yards beyond the green is a pair of strategically-placed bunkers.
Hole #9The closing hole is a difficult par 4. With Aliso Creek brimming with foliage down the entire left side of the fairway and orange trees and bunkers scattered in the right rough, the tee shot puts a premium on accuracy. Once safely on the fairway, the final approach shot is over Aliso Creek to a narrow green framed by eucalyptus.
