BLACK 406

BLUE 384

GOLD 327

Yardage by Tee:

BLACK 196

BLUE 174

Men's 2 Women's 4

Yardage by Tee:

BLACK 430

BLUE 406

GOLD 350

GREEN 283

WHITE 384

Pro Tips

An aggressive line of the tee will be rewarded on this dogleg left par 4. The second shot must stay below the hole to have a chance at making par, as the green slopes severely, especially on the right side.

# 7 / Hole #7

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 7 Women's 1

Yardage by Tee:

BLACK 376

BLUE 354

GOLD 319

GREEN 270

WHITE 337

Pro Tips

Players will want to hit their tee ball as far as possible to give themselves a shorter approach into this par 4. The green slopes severely from back-to-front, so anything long will be treacherous with water in play.

# 8 / Hole #8

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 5 Women's 5

Yardage by Tee:

BLACK 404

BLUE 378

GOLD 336

GREEN 302

WHITE 350

Pro Tips

Another sharp dogleg par 4 that rewards a more aggressive play off the tee. This green runs away, which means balls have a tendency to run off the back.

# 9 / Hole #9

Par: 5

Handicaps:
Men's 1 Women's 3

Yardage by Tee:

BLACK 571

BLUE 536

GOLD 486

GREEN 435

WHITE 518

Pro Tips

The closing hole on this nine is a par 5 that requires a drive down the middle-right of the fairway. A second shot up the right gives players the best view of the green for a wedge approach in. The green slopes from back-to-front and right-to-left, so players don’t want to miss long or right.
