#1 Out of bounds to the right and the rough slopes away to the left off of the tee. You want to stay to the left half of the fairway off the tee and do not go long of the green with your approach. The large oak to the right on the hill is 235 yards from the tee.
#2 The fairway slopes towards the creek on the left so stay right off the tee to have a good look at the green. The fairway is almost a 90 degree dogleg left at the top of the hill. A 230 yard drive straight away will go through the fairway but be playable
#4 Looks tighter than it is from the tee. Play your drive to or past the large oak on the right of the fairway, which is 180 yards from the tee. This will give you a good angle to go after the green.
#5 An overly aggressive drive will almost always result in a punch out of the trees. Play straight to the corner for a good look at the green. A drive of 200 yards or more must play left to right to stay in the fairway
#6 A long playing, uphill par 5. Play your drive to the right side of the fairway. The fairway opens up about 150 yards from the green for your second shot landing area. There is a bunker hidden from sight on the front right of the green. Do not go over the green
#7 Short, relatively easy par 3. There is water left and over the green, as well as directly off the tee. The bunker on the left is bigger than it looks and you don’t want to blast out of the sand with water on the other side of the green.
#8 Make a choice to either lay up short or go over the water with your drive. The water angles across the fairway. To the left side of the fairway you need a 200 yard carry to be safe. The right side is 140 yards from the tee to carry the water. At least 180 yards straight away is needed to set up the perfect approach. If you want to lay up short, hit slightly left only 150 yards from the tee for another 150 yard approach into the green which is closely guarded front and right by the same winding creek.
#9 Long playing par 3. A shot losing speed at the green will almost always roll short and left. Unless there is a wind at your back choose one more club than you might think and expect a friendly bounce off the hill on an errant shot slightly to the right. The green slopes to the front and left.
#10 A chance for that elusive birdie to start the back 9. The first landing area is deceptively large at the corner but does slope to the right into the trees if you are not careful. A good drive that just gets by the corner on the left leaves the long hitter with a straight shot to the green.
#11 If you miss the green short and right the ball will sometimes kick onto the green when the ground is firm. Do not miss the green to the left into the deepest bunker on the course. The large green has many deceptive breaks so take a good look at your putt.
#12 An overly aggressive tee shot will get you into trouble unless you are in the center of the fairway. There is O.B. close on the left all the way to the green. The large elm on the right at the top of the hill is 240 from the tee and 140 from the green so plan for your approach
#13 A long ball hitter needs to work the ball to the left at the corner, which is 200 yards from the tee. A ball hit to the center of the dogleg leaves only a 120 yard approach to the green. Drive placement is critical for a chance at par or better.
#14 The hardest easy hole on the course. Big hitters can challenge the corner in an attempt to drive the green only 240 yards straight over the top of the trees to the left. However the trees are tall on the other side of the woods and often leave a punch out the only option. Play the ball straight away 190 to 210 yards for the best approach angle.
#15 A 200 yard drive slightly left of center leads to an easy approach shot. Do not miss the fairway right to avoid the small lake by the group of oaks, which are 180 from the tee. This can be an easy hole if your ball stays to the left side of the fairway off the tee
#16 You have two distinct options as you stand on the tee of this beautiful par 4. One is to play long off the tee down the left side of the fairway to the lake, which is 260 yards from the tee. From there a carry of at least 130 yards is then necessary to reach the large green in regulation. The other option is to play far right of center and decide to play either a short iron to another landing area in front of the green or a chance to go over the lake with a long iron. Keep in mind that if you go straight off the tee or right of center, a drive that is too close to the lake will be pinned behind the trees on the tee side of the lake and leave a punch out as the only option.
#17 Play to the center of this large green. All shots to the right will tend to go further right particularly when the ground is firm. Do not go long as there is a large slope down the back of the green
#18 A long uphill first shot that seems to never get to the top of the hill leads to a long downhill second and third shots that almost funnel into the green. Be careful off the tee, as all drives seem to bounce right as they land. Stay left for the best angle to the green with your second or third shots.
