The Golf Course:

1st. Your round starts off with a straightaway Par 4 with no tricks. Don’t be long.

2nd. Cart Path Only. Downhill Par 3 that measures 165 from the white trees. Sand is the only problem.

3rd. Good Par 4 to an elevated green. Undulating green makes for tricky putts.

4th. Out of bounds left. Respect our neighbor’s privacy. Trouble over the green.

5th. No margin for error – 200 yards to traps – then a tight landing area for the 2nd shot. Out of bounds right.

6th. White stakes define area. This is a dog leg left. If you get to the path you can see the green, otherwise a second shot with a mid-iron over the shrubs will leave you a wedge to this par 5.

7th. Long Par 4 leaves tough second shot. Traps left and water right of the green..

8th. Cart path only. Good Par 3 to the elevated green. No gimmicks here.

9th. Cart path only. Short Par 4. Suggest long hitters wait til group ahead of you reaches the green.

10th. A good drive will get to within 150 yards. Don’t be left or long with approach. 11th. Cart path only. This 90 foot drop shortens up the 176 yards from the middle tee.

12th. Cart path only. A slight fade will keep you in play with a short approach up the hill to the green.

13th. Cart path only. An iron off the tee will leave a short approach to a well hidden green.

14th. The Water Tower is your target for the first two shots. Careful with your chip. Stay left.

15th. Cart path only. Don’t be long on this Par 3. Large waste area left is hard to see from tee box.

16th. This undulating green can give you fits. Try and get that approach close.

17th. Favor the right with this tee shot. Very large green can leave some monster putts.

18th. Cart path only. Dog leg left with trouble on the left side. Mid-iron approach to a small green.
