Pro Tips

This short par 4 requires a decision on the tee shot. The aggresive play is to drive over the creek to the front of the green, a more conservative play is to lay up to the right of the fairway bunker for a short iron into the green.

Pro Tips

The Dunes Course concludes on a long par 5 back to the Clubhouse. Players must avoid the arroyo on the right with their tee shots, and negotiate it again if they lay up short of the green. The large bunker in front of the green is a popular miss, a good approach is required to find the proper section of this multi-tiered green.
