Pro Tips

The course opens with a par 5 that’s bordered by fescue and fairway bunkers on both the right and left. The green is fronted by a swale that can be deceiving, so players must be sure to get their approach yardage correct.

Gold Tee 162

Black Tee 143

White Tee 121

Red Tee 121

Blue Tee 101

This downhill par 3 features an undulated, kidney-shaped green that requires an accurate shot to hold. Often times, wind can bring the front bunker and a heather-laden drop-off behind the green into play.

Handicaps:
Men's 3 Women's 9

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 410

Black Tee 397

White Tee 376

Red Tee 360

Blue Tee 306

Pro Tips

The third is an uphill par 4 that plays longer than it looks. It features an almost blind approach shot into a well-bunkered green. The putting surface is undulated with two tiers, making birdies rare.

# 4 / Hole 4

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 3 Women's 1

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 450

Black Tee 423

White Tee 392

Red Tee 360

Blue Tee 337

Pro Tips

The tee shot on this par 4 is elevated and plays to a generous fairway. Trees on the right block out approaches into the green and a large front bunker guards the green.

# 5 / Hole 5

Par: 5

Handicaps:
Men's 7 Women's 1

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 534

Black Tee 507

White Tee 486

Red Tee 445

Blue Tee 445

Pro Tips

This short par 5 is reachable in two, but players must avoid fescue and fairway bunkers bordering the green on the left and front. The conservative play is to lay-up to the right, leaving a short wedge into the green.

# 6 / Hole 6

Par: 3

Handicaps:
Men's 11 Women's 13

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 198

Black Tee 174

White Tee 153

Red Tee 125

Blue Tee 116

Pro Tips

As the sixth is the most picturesque par 3 on the course, there’s no surprise it’s the signature hole. It requires a long-mid iron over both water and a severe bunker front and left of this undulated green.

# 7 / Hole 7

Par: 3

Handicaps:
Men's 9 Women's 11

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 406

Black Tee 360

White Tee 333

Red Tee 333

Blue Tee 289

Pro Tips

Two large swales make this short par 4 an excellent test of accuracy. From the tee, left and right bunkers border the first swale. In front of the green, a deep second swale makes the hole look deceptively short, making club selection important.

# 8 / Hole 8

Par: 5

Handicaps:
Men's 17 Women's 7

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 472

Black Tee 443

White 392

Red Tee 392

Blue Tee 379

Pro Tips

This downhill par 3 features an undulated, kidney-shaped green that requires an accurate shot to hold. Often times, wind can bring the front bunker and a heather-laden drop-off behind the green into play.

# 9 / Hole 9

Par: 3

Men's 13 Women's 15

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 223

Black Tee 202

White Tee 156

Red Tee 156

Blue Tee 115

Pro Tips

The front nine finishes with a classic par 3 that requires a mid to long iron. Balls that come to rest in the left bunker are difficult to get up-and-down for par.

# 10 / Hole 10

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 10 Women's 8

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 425

Black Tee 392

White Tee 365

Red Tee 356

Blue Tee 349

Pro Tips

The back nine opens with a blind tee shot with trees right and a large bunker on the left. The approach shot on this par 4 plays downhill and anything left tends to kick back to the right. A deep bunker guards the putting surface on the front-right.

# 11 / Hole 11

Par: 3

Handicaps:
Men's 16 Women's 12

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 181

Black Tee 155

White Tee 150

Red Tee 150

Blue Tee 125

Pro Tips

A large, deep bunker guards the front of the green on this slightly uphill par 3. A penalty area protects the left side, meaning a solid tee shot is a must.

# 12 / Hole 12

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 14 Women's 14

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 346

Black Tee 324

White Tee 313

Red Tee 313

Blue Tee 238

Pro Tips

The twelfth is a short, straightaway par 4. Short-iron approaches play into a wide, but shallow green. Bunkers guard the front and back of the putting surface, with thick round surrounding the perimeter.

# 13 / Hole 13

Par: 5

Handicaps:
Men's 2 Women's 4

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 581

Black Tee 543

White Tee 507

Red Tee 463

Blue Tee 463

Pro Tips

This long, narrow, downhill par 5 requires three good shots to hit the green in regulation. High, native fescue lines the right side, catching errant shots. Approach shots play uphill into an elevated, crowned green that’s guarded by bunkers on the right.

# 14 / Hole 14

Par: 3

Handicaps:
Men's 18 Women's 18

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 198

Black Tee 174

White Tee 151

Red Tee 151

Blue Tee 107

Pro Tips

The final par 3 on the course, the fourteenth requires solid club selection and accuracy from this elevated tee box. Shots to the left will find a ravine, while a miss right will result in a delicate downhill chip.

# 15 / Hole 15

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 12 Women's 16

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 392

Black Tee 366

White Tee 346

Red Tee 315

Blue Tee 200

Pro Tips

The tee shot on this relatively short par 4 plays over a large ravine. A greenside bunker punishes missed approach shots and will leave players with a tricky up-and-down.

# 16 / Hole 16

Par: 5

Handicaps:
Men's 8 Women's 2

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 552

Black Tee 510

White Tee 458

Red Tee 415

Blue Tee 383

Pro Tips

This long, uphill par 5 is reminiscent of a links-style course, as it appears endless from the tee. Approach shots play into this elevated, two-tiered green are deceptive and require precise iron play.

# 17 / Hole 17

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 6 Women's 10

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 446

Black Tee 418

White Tee 395

Red Tee 367

Blue Tee 367

Pro Tips

The seventeenth is an outstanding downhill par 4 that is both breathtaking and demanding. Driving accuracy is important as a large bunker, that appears out of reach from the tee, is actually very much in play. This long, shallow green is fronted by two narrow bunkers and bordered by a fence.

# 18 / Hole 18

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 4 Women's 6

Yardage by Tee:

Gold Tee 409

Black Tee 374

White Tee 395

Red Tee 321

Blue Tee 321

Pro Tips

Tee shots on this finishing hole ought to be played at the American flag. This uphill, slight dogleg right par 4 features trees right and a bunker left off the tee. Then, the two-tiered green is guarded by bunkers in front.
