Ease your way into your round on this generous starting hole. Fairway is wide and straight, be sure to choose a club that avoids the fairway bunker on the right. The second shot approaches a large slightly elevated green with difficult up and downs on both sides. Do not be long! Hidden lateral hazard behind the green.
The green runs away from right to left. Sets up great for a cut shot to avoid the bunker on the right.
The fairway is a premium on this hole. Play it as a 3 shot par 5. The second shot should be a layup just short of the right fairway bunker. This will leave you approximately 100 yards and a shot at birdie.
Be careful on this par 3. The wind tends to be in your face. The deeper the pin the bigger the carry beyond a right greenside bunker and water hazard. Take plenty of club!
A potential birdie hole. Lay up in the right center of the fairway, short of the bunker, leaves a short iron approach with a great angle.
Two shot or three shot par five? Make the decision before your tee off. A tee ball down the left center and a lay up to your favorite yardage sets you up for an easy par or birdie. You will need to skirt the fairway bunker into a narrow section of the fairway if you want to reach in 2 shots.
Choose the right side of the split fairway. That sets up the best angle for your mid-iron approach.
The widest part of the fairway leaves a mid-iron approach. If you choose to be aggressive in search of a shorter approach, there is more fairway to the left than you can see from the tee. Avoid the fairway bunker to the right.
Don’t get greedy! Use the left center of fairway to avoid the penalizing bunker complex to the right. This will leave you a mid-iron approach looking straight up the gut of the green.
Keep your tee shot to the right to avoid kicking into the lake that narrows the fairway just over the hill. This hole has a very shallow green. Be sure to get your distance correct on the approach.
This par three can sneak up and get you. Play your tee ball to the middle of the green and accept a long putt for birdie. Take two putts and get out of there, happy with a par.
Hitting your tee ball down the right center is the best play. Hit your lay up down there far enough to use a short iron. The green angles away from you to the right and is very narrow. Pick the correct club!
Par is a great score on this hole. It plays longer than the yardage indicates. The tee ball is straight forward. The approach will be with a long-iron or hybrid. Keep the approach to the right for the easier up and down if you miss the green.
Placing your tee ball down the left side of the fairway shortens the hole by as much as two clubs. Playing to the center of the green is the best way to avoid the greenside bunkers.
This elevated par three presents itself right to you. This is deep green that changes club selection by as many as three clubs, depending on the pin placement. Choose wisely.
Placing the ball in the right center of fairway sets up your second shot perfectly. Laying up just left of the right fairway bunker is the best play for your second. Your approach is extremely uphill. Take an extra club.
Play the tee shot to the left center fairway. There is not as much fairway to the right as it may appear. Your short iron approach will set you up nicely for a chance for birdie.
A par feels like a birdie on this difficult hole. Playing your tee ball down the left side shortens the hole by as much as three clubs. This still leaves you with a very long second over water. Now you face the shot of the round. Don’t try to be the hero. Make a solid swing to clear the water and then go get it up and down.
