Hole by Hole
Hole 1 Par 5
The first hole is a Par 5 measuring 601 yards from the back tees. Water guards the entire left side from tee to green of this left dogleg hole with trees lining the right. Laying up on the second shot is recommended. Precision is needed for the third shot onto the green, which is well guarded by bunkers to the right and water to the left.
Hole 2 Par 3
The first Par 3 of the course requires a medium to short iron. The green has water to the left and bunkers to the right and back. The green slopes severely from back to front and getting your tee shot pin high is desirable to avoid 3-putts.
Hole 3 Par 4
This relatively short Par 4 requires a precise tee shot to carry the water hazard. The fairway is divided into two sections, the right side being more elevated than the left. The green is guarded by water in the front and is sloped from the back to front and requires an accurate short iron approach shot, both in distance control and accuracy.
Hole 4 Par 3
The second Par 3 has water running the entire length of the hole, punishing shots to the left and short of the green. The green slopes from the back to the front, offering a challenge for shots not pin high to the hole.
Hole 5 Par 4
This long Par 4 offers a large landing area encouraging golfers to hit it long off the tee. The left side short of the green has a large bunker and should be avoided at all costs. The large green makes distance control a must for the approach shot.
Hole 6 Par 4
The longest and hardest Par 4 of the course is a straight Par 4 which offers a wide landing area. Water runs through the fairway short of the green. The green itself has large bunkers guarding the left and right sides requiring a precise approach shot with a long iron or even woods if playing into the wind. Making par on this hole is considered a plus.
Hole 7 Par 5
Avoiding the large bunker to the right of the fairway with the tee shot is mandatory in order to go for the green in 2.The green has water guarding the right and bunkers to both left, right and back. Playing this hole conservatively will most likely result in a par, but courageous golfers can be rewarded with a birdie or eagle.
Hole 8 Par 4
A long iron or hybrid off the tee is advised for this short Par 4. Water along the left and trees to the right will punish any mishit shots. The approach needs a precise short iron in order to avoid the water hazard guarding the green.
Hole 9 Par 4
The last hole going out is an uphill Par 4 with a left dogleg. Approach shots must take into consideration the increased elevation of the green. Two bunkers guard the front of the green for shots finishing short. Finishing the first half of the course with a par or better is not out of the question.
Hole 10 Par 4
This fairly straight Par 4 requires a good tee shot to setup an aggressive approach shot to the green, which is guarded by bunkers in the front and back. A good hole to get golfers out to a good start for the back nine.
Hole 11 Par 4
A short Par 4 with a slightly right dogleg. Tee shots must avoid the bunker and water hazards to the right. Teeing off with a long iron is a good option to afford a short to medium iron to the green.
Hole 12 Par 3
This Par 3 has an island green which demands an accurate tee shot. Any wayward shots have a high chance of finding the water and can ruin your score.This Par 3 will test the proficiency of your shot iron game and leaving with a par is more than adequate.
Hole 13 Par 4
The second hardest hole of the course needs a long carry off the tee to avoid the large bunker. A good medium or short iron approach shot will be able to avoid the bunkers guarding the left and right side of the green. The green itself slopes from back to front so calculate your distance accordingly.
Hole 14 Par 5
Another excellent Par 5 that grants golfers to play aggressively to go for the green in 2. Avoid the water hazard to the left which runs the length of the hole and golfers should be able to finish the hole with an easy par or better.
Hole 15 Par 4
This hole has a narrow fairway with OB to the left dense trees to the right. Teeing off with a long iron is highly recommended to setup an optimum position to reach the green on the approach shot. Avoid the massive bunker on the front left of the green at all costs.
Hole 16 Par 34
A short Par 4 with water and sand running the full length to the left. The right of the fairway also has bunkers waiting for errant tee shots. Tee off with a long iron to find the fairway and golfers will have a short approach shot to the green.
Hole 17 Par 3
The last Par 3 of the course is a long hole requiring a good tee shot to avoid the bunker on the left side and water for mishits. The right side of the green offers a bailout area for golfers so missing right is the better choice than the left.
Hole 18 Par 5
The last hole for the course is a Par 5 hole with a double dogleg and has water in play on both the first and third shots. Going for the green in 2 is improbable and playing the hole in regulation is the more desirable route. The massive green needs a precise approach shot to finish the course with a birdie.
