A generous fairway that doglegs from right to left with one of the flattest greens on the golf course don't be too aggressive with your tee shot with the trees on the left, and you can easily hit your tee shot through the fairway and be in trouble from the rough and trees on the right side of the fairway. Plan on hitting your tee shot to the 150-yard marker. The green slopes from front to back with a bunker on the left side of the green so don't be too aggressive on your shot into the green.
A demanding drive is needed for the lower handicap to go for this green in two shots. If you hit your tee shot too far left, you will have trouble with the trees and also too far right you will be blocked out for your next shot. Watch out, this green is very tricky and slopes from left to right. Try not to be above the hole if you can help it with any shot due to the slope of the green.
Club selection is the key due to the fact the hole plays longer than it would appear because it is uphill. All shots that land short of the green usually come back down the hill, and the green has two greenside bunkers that make this hole very tricky.
A long, demanding uphill hole that will require two long shots to reach the green in two with out of bounds on the right side of the rough along the driving range. The green is also difficult with two tiers and with any pin on the back tier of the green making the hole more difficult.
A left to right dogleg with out of bounds on the right side of this hole. Avoid the fairway bunkers on the right side of the fairway with your tee shot, and this makes your second shot easier to an uphill fairly level green that has a bunker on the right side.
One of the most difficult holes on the golf course due to the foci it is a long par 4, but usually into the wind. On each side of the fairway there are bunkers and out of bounds oil down the right side of the rough from tee to green. The green seems very flat but take your time to read the green property.
A dogleg right to left with the fairway sloping towards two fairway bunkers on the right side. Shorter hitters must play to the right to leave a view of the green with club selection to the green being vital.

A pretty straight forward hole with what you see is what you get. Judging the wind is a major factor and ensure that you carry the front bunkers that protect this green. The green is pretty flat, and don't go tong with your tee shot otherwise it brings a bogey or more and play on.
A generous driving hole with a couple of fairway bunkers down the left side, and one fairway bunker down the right side. For the shorter hitters, plan on laying up in front of the water hazard to al 00 yards out.

Remember don't go over the green because there is little room over the back of the green.
A demanding and intimidating tee shot for many golfers and a tee shot in the fairway is a must. The fairway is lined with trees on both sides, uphill, and usually into the wind. To make this hole easier play something off the tee to 175 or 150 yards from the green, this makes the hole somewhat easier and takes some of the trouble off the tee out of play. The green is slightly uphill, so take enough club to reach the green.
A dogleg from left to right plan on a tee shot that will get you to 1 75 yards from the green favoring the left side of the fairway. Longer hitters trying to carry the corner of the dogleg on the right side beware of the carry distance, but also the narrow landing area. The green is very challenging with the slope from back to front, so leave your shots below the hole to make all your putts easier.
A demanding par 3 that a lot of golfers take for granted. Trust your yardage of the hole and play your shot to favor the right side of the green. If you miss the green left or long, accept a possible bogey.
The most demanding tee shot on the entire course. Hit your tee shot to the top of the hill on the fairway 200 yards from the green, and then the longer hitters can go for the green in two.

Any shot into this green favor the right side of the green.
A good par 4 that is all set up by a tee shot in the fairway. An off-line tee shot will rarely leave a shot to the green, making a par very difficult.

Another great par 4 that is set up by the tee shot and with a second shot to an uphill green that is protected by a mound on the left side of the green and a bunker back left. Don’t hit your tee shot through the fairway on the right side, otherwise you will chip out or be playing out of deeper rough.
The drive must favor the right side of the fairway to ovoid the fairway bunkers on the left side and have a clear shot to the green.

A difficult par 3 that usually plays into the wind, and a green that has two tiers. Trust the yardage on the card. The ideal miss is to be short of the green due the bunkers that protect this hole on both sides and the back of the green. A par is a great score on this hole.
Aim your tee shot down the left side of center of the fairway and play to the corner of the dogleg. For the longer hitters, be careful not to hit your tee shot too far right because you will have a chip out back to the fairway.
