The Persimmon Course, which opened to rave reviews in 1999, features elevation changes from 50 feet to 300 feet. It’s the more traditional of the two courses, which features a signature, 18,000 square foot double green that concludes both the front and back nines. Perhaps the most notable is the final stretch of holes 15 through 18 that makes for a strong finish.

Pro Tips

With a lake on three sides and two bunkers left, this par 3 can look intimidating. Playing slightly down-hill, a mid-iron will find the center of the green, but there is room on the right to miss this large, undulating green.

Pro Tips

Tees are elevated 30 feet above the fairway. The second shot selection is determined by the pin placement: a front right pin calls for a wood to carry the right fairway bunker; a back left pin calls for a layup short and left.

Pro Tips

This long, uphill dogleg right has a wash running down the entire left side. Tee shots must carry two pot bunkers and avoid grass bunkers on the left. The three-tiered green is highlighted by a pot bunker on the back right.

Pro Tips

A premium is placed on a precise tee shot over a wash. The narrow fairway is framed by a wash on the left and four fairway bunkers on the right. A target bunker short right directs the second shot to a semi-blind green fronted by grass pot bunkers. The fairway wraps around the right side of the green allowing for a bail out.

Pro Tips

The shortest of the par 3s, this hole is tucked in a small valley and has a two-tiered green flanked by six bunkers. A deep wash protects the front of the green and a grass bunker is along the back-side.

Pro Tips

A tee shot avoiding the fairway bunker sets up an easy approach. A deep canyon separates the fairway and green with a bail out area short right. The double green, shared with hole 18, is two-tiered.

Pro Tips

Downhill all the way, this is the shortest par 4 on the course. A deep swale runs through the middle of the landing area, setting up a tricky approach. A lake positioned on the left catches stray tee shots.

The eleventh is a par 5 that features a fairway bunkers down the right side of the landing area. Lay up on your second shot to the left for a better approach angle to the green.

Pro Tips

A swale cuts through the landing area, creating a rolling fairway. The green slopes from back to front and is wrapped by fairway on the left. A deep grass bunker sits on the right green side to punish a stray second shot.

Pro Tips

A deep canyon wash on the left sets up this long, uphill par 3. The large, tiered green is protected by flanking bunkers. A short tee shot will find a very steep grass depression.

Pro Tips

This hole climbs over 50 feed from tee to green. Grass bunkers define the right side of the sloping fairway, with four bunkers in the background. The three-tiered green is guarded by the grass bunkers front and right, while bunkers behind the green catch long approach shots.

Pro Tips

The elevation from tee to green is 80 feet. The ideal tee shot must carry the left fairway bunker but will be rewarded as the fairway opens up. A large bunker surrounds the right and back of this green.

Slope:

Black 139 | Blue 137 | White - Men 131 | White - Women 137 | Green - Men 122 | Green - Women 128

Pro Tips

The plateau fairway is cut in half by a wash, and a bunker bisects the greenside fairway. A tee shot that hugs the right side will allow a bold second shot to roll onto the green. An errant shot to the left side of the green will not hold and the ball will find a bunker.

# 17 / Hole #17

Par: 3

Pro Tips

This classic par 3 is set up for a right-to-left tee shot. A ball too far left will find a deep bunker and bunkers on the back right and shot will catch shots to the right.

# 18 / Hole #18

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 11 Women's 7

Yardage by Tee:

Pro Tips

Drives down the right side will be rewarded as the fairway opens up. A deep canyon awaits a poor approach shot right, while a leftward second shot will find a slope that could send your ball onto the green.
