This is the hardest hole on the front nine—a long par 4 that plays straight into the wind. A great drive here will still leave you with a mid-to-long iron into a bunkered, but receptive green. Five is not a bad score here.
Another downwind par 5, this hole is a good place to, “Grip it and rip it!” This is one of the few holes on the course with no water to worry about, but be careful—the green slopes heavily from back to front, making three putts a real possibility.
Here you’ll find a very demanding par 4 that doglegs heavily to the left. Be careful of the out-of-bounds that lurks to the left. A good drive will allow you to play a mid-to-short iron into a small green well protected by bunkers.
A true test of skill, the green on this long par 3 is well-protected by bunkers on both sides, as well as a water hazard on the right. Afternoon headwinds make this hole even more challenging, so play your shots wisely.
The last par 5 on the course, the finishing hole at Chula Vista plays directly into the afternoon headwinds. Water hazards located on both sides of the fairway require accuracy off the tee. An accurate approach shot may result in a well-earned birdie to end your round.
