FollowFollowFollowFollowFollowFollow Hole 1: This par 4 opening hole is a gentle dogleg left with out of bounds on the right. A drive favoring the left side offers the best approach to a green that slopes gently from front to back. Hole 2: This short par 4 requires an accurate drive. A large hill front right of the green and a large tree front left protect the putting surface from all but the most accurate approach shot. Hole 3: This short par three with bunkers on both sides of the green requires another accurate approach shot. Hole 4: Our first par 5 demands a long tee shot to reach the top of the hill. From there, the hole doglegs right down to the clubhouse. Bunkers in front ask you to carry your approach shot onto the green. Hole 5: The blind tee shot on this par 4 should be aimed just left of the large maple tree. A small pond on the left side is reachable for the longer hitters. Finally, the uphill approach to the green will require an extra club. Hole 6: You’ll need another accurate drive on this uphill par 4. Shots to the right will roll down into trees or onto the 7th fairway. The uphill approach to a domed green makes the center of the green the best target here. Hole 7: The large tower in the horizon marks the target line for your tee shot on this dogleg right par 4. Favor the left center on your approach to the green. Hole 8: Water on the left and trees on the right force you to be accurate with your tee shot on this dogleg right par 4. The uphill approach to a green with bunkers short right and left may require an extra club. Hole 9: This is the signature hole on the front nine. A long drive is needed on this par 4 as the approach shot is challenging. Water in front and an elevated green call for an extra club on the approach. Those who can’t carry the water on their second shot are advised to lay up at the 100 yard marker short of the water. Golfers just short of the green should look for the patch of authentic “St. Andrews” bent grass planted there by one of our members. Hole 10: The safe tee shot on this par 4 is to the 150 yard marker, as the fairway narrows considerably after that point. The creek in front of the green, reminisant of the Swilcan Burn at St. Andrews, forces the golfer to carry his ball onto the green. Hole 11: Water left forces the golfer to favor the right side on this dogleg left par 4. A wide but narrow elevated green makes the second shot harder than it looks. Don’t be long here! Hole 12: A lovely downhill par 3 to a green which slopes pretty severely from right to left. Hole 13: This par 5 is a big dogleg to the right. Accuracy is a must as there is trouble both left and right on this hole. A lay up to the 100 yard marker leaves an uphill approach to a green with bunkers to the front and the right. Hole 14: Play your tee shot to the 150 yard marker left of the fairway bunker on this dogleg right par 4. Anything short of this bunker will be blocked out by the trees on the right. Keep your approach below the hole on this green, as it slopes severely from back to front. Hole 15: The driving area on this short par 4 is smaller than it seems, as the fairway falls off towards the woods on the left side. Water in front of the elevated green forces you to carry your approach onto the putting surface. Hole 16: This par 5 is a position hole with a sharp dogleg left 400 yards out from the tee. Hitting your second shot to the right side of the fairway at the 100 yard marker should leave you with a clear look at the green. Hole 17: This par 3 is the signature hole on the back nine. Enjoy the view from the tee as you play downhill to a green with a bunker to the left. Hole 18: This par 4 goes uphill and then doglegs gently to the left. Play your tee shot to the right side of the fairway to have the best angle on your approach. Some golfers have been known to place a small wager on the longest drive on #18, followed by a beverage on the deck of the spacious clubhouse at the end of their round!
