This slight dogleg right with the generous landing area is a great starter. Your tee shot should favor the left side to open up the approach shot. This is a short, two-shotter that says, “par me.”
This long, demanding par 4 will start to separate the field. Play your drive left of center as the ball will kick right, but don’t go to far right. The deep green slopes from back to front.
This medium length par 4 sets up your round. The hardest shot in golf is a straight tee shot, and you need one here. Fire straightaway! The second shot requires accuracy too, as bunkers guard both sides of this severely sloped green.
Grip it and rip it! Don’t leave anything in the bag here. Even John Daly can’t reach this one in two. Make sure your drive is in the fairway. Proper club selection on the severely uphill approach shot is a must. This tremendous hole is truly a three-shotter!
COME AND GET IT
Finally a semblance of relief! Hole location will determine how to play this long par 3. When the pin is back left, play to the middle of the green. However, you can be more aggressive with a front or middle pin location.
THE BIG BANANA
You can reach this really fun par 5 in two because it favors a fade. Aim down the left side as the fairway will kick everything right. Keep in mind that the green is elevated. Play safely along the left side; danger lies to the right.
LET THE FUN BEGIN
This short par 4 requires precision from the tee; scattered bunkers abound. If you can avoid the beaches, the rewards are yours for the taking. A long iron or fairway wood leaves a short iron approach to a green guarded by a lone bunker on the left.
This great, difficult, but picturesque par 3 has no safe side as it is protected by a massive bunker! Just get up, take a deep breath and knock it on! Proper club selection is a must as you’ll probably need one more club than the yardage dictates.
This par 4 offers a super finish to your trip around the front. Drivers should favor the left side to allow for the humps and the bumps! Your approach requires accuracy to a large green protected by bunkers on the right side.
This par 4 is a medium dogleg to the right. “Bite off” what you dare as deep bunkers protect the right side of the fairway. The smart golfer avoids these at all costs. Stay to the left side and your approach will be an easy short iron.
THE STRAIGHT AND WIDE
A nicely played drive with a draw, followed by an approach with a fade, could mean a birdie. Not extremely difficult, but slight tricky.
One of the few birdie holes, this par 5 can be reached in two. Not ready for the gamble? Lay up to the right of the fairway bunkers for an easy, short iron approach.
WASTE NOT, WANT NOT
This seemingly harmless par 3 frustrates players of all skill levels. The slightly elevated green slopes from left to right. Holding this green takes a tee shot of great precision and feel. Par is a great score here.
This fairly short par 4 features a ridge that affects the landing area. Avoid the bunkers and aim for the middle of the small green.
THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD
Tiger might reach this long par 5 in two, but mere mortals won’t. Out of bounds guards both sides of the fairway. Favor the left side from the tee, the right on your second. Avoid the bunkers on both shots. Play to the center of this gently back to front sloping green.
THE SET UP
If you can work your tee shot from right to left on this long hole, you will benefit; a successful tee shot favors the left side of the fairway. An accurate second shot is required to avoid the bunkers protecting both sides of the green.
LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP
We’ve saved the best for last. This final par 3 is a great shot making test. You can always bail out left and short, but don’t be intimidated! Just remember, getting up and down from the bunkers is nearly impossible.
This par 4 offers a super finish to a fun filled day! Even after a perfect tee shot that starts over the right side and draws back to the left, you must execute your approach with conviction as the gallery watches, ready to applaud.
