Hole 1: 510 yard Par 5 “Slide”
A sneaky starting hole that slides left off the tee box around a row of trees and then gently slides back to the right towards the green. The green is receptive to woods and long irons for the longer drivers. Out of bounds is in play left from 100 yards and in while a sand trap guards the front right of the green.
Hole 2: 216 yard Par 3 “Hammer”
A long shot to a sloped green presents a big challenge on the Hammer – especially from the back tees. OB runs the length of the hole on the left and a sand trap rests next to the green. A par is a good score on this hole. A new tee box for ladies makes this hole much more fair.
Hole 3: 389 yard Par 4 “Road Hole”
A good tee shot is needed here on our version of the Road Hole. OB again on the left and a fairway trap is hidden on the left side. A large ash tree sits off the fairway just inside the 100 yard marker. The green is relatively flat with a sand trap on the right side. OB behind the green.
Hole 4: 355 yard Par 4 “Hundie Hill”
Avoid the fairway trap and the greenside trap – both on the left. A drive up the hill provides a better view of the green past the 100 yard marker..
Hole 5: 145 yard Par 3 “The Shallows”
Pin position will determine the club choice. A flag on the left side of the green provides the easiest approach while cups placed on the right side force a carry over the sand trap. This is the lowest area on the course. It is shortest hole with a small pond that usually does not come into play.
Hole 6: 412 yard Par 4 “North Slope”
The toughest hole on the course – bring out a big stick off the tee on the “Beast”. This hole plays up hill to a difficult green. It takes two good shots for a birdie putt.
Hole 7: 377 yard Par 4 “National”
A former groundskeeper called the dense trees on the left a “National Forest”. An accurate tee shot is required here to avoid the trees both left and right. The green slopes from right to left and is protected on the right with a deep bunker.
Hole 8: 515 yard Par 5 “Courthouse”
Avoid the OB that runs the right side the entire length of the hole. A wide fairway invites a big tee shot. Head north towards the Courthouse.
Hole 9: 310 yard Par 4 “Gamble”
The signature finishing hole that takes a sharp turn left through a narrow opening in the trees. Dare to bite off as much as possible for a shorter approach. Don’t be short or long off the tee. Matches & bets are settled after this risk/reward hole.
