The first hole is an loved opener.One that grants golfers a opportunity to get off to a good start. Number two plays into the prevailing wind and will require two good shots to reach in regulation, but is also score able. The par three third is a gorgeous hole requiring a tee shot over a pond.With some bail out space left. This is the fifth handicapped hole.Pretty demanding for a three par! Rolling mounds and sand traps provide the challenge on the dogleg right par four fourth.That also features a double tiered green. Number five bends in the complete opposite direction and provides a good amount of room on the fairway and this is a very score able par five. The sixth is rated as the number one handicap.Playing from the Black tees at 435 yards. Number seven is an easy par three (17th handicap) precedes a short but tricky par four. A lay up past and left of the 150 yard stake is the suggested play off the tee on eight. Everything hit to the right will have to negotiate the water hazard. The pond on the right comes into play quickly on the finishing hole of the front. Five hundred seventy one yards is the longest hole of the layout. Play to the left middle of the fairway on this lengthy up hill par five, that bends softly to the right.

The back side begins with a narrow par four.Which invites a tee shot aimed at the 150 yard stake. On 11, a lay up just past the 150 is suggested while avoiding the water hazard and bunkers to the right.The fairway from tee to green is slender on the par five 12th. Two precisely placed shots may produce a nice birdie opportunity here. thirteen is also very score able.The narrow mounded fairway will funnel slightly off line tee shots towards the middle. The par three fourteenth.The eighteenth handicap, is the easiest hole of the layout. Take enough club,it plays all of the distance advertised. The wide fairway on 15 slopes left to right making some approach shots with the ball below your feet.It plays into a double tiered green. There is plenty of room for error on the stunning par three sixteenth.The pond short of the putting green should not come into play. Number 17 plays to an open rolling fairway with a grass swale fronting the green.Which is followed by a fairly and score able closing hole. Avoid the pond about 50 yards out and a low number is possible.
