Course Tips

Flag Locations: Blue Flag (back), Yellow Flag (middle) & Red Flag (front) yardage markers in the middle of the fairway: Blue(200), White(150) & Red(100) – there are also yardage distances on the top of the sprinkler heads

Cart warning: You’ll see a green/white post about 25-50 yards in front of the green.  Do not take carts any closer to the green.  Stay on cart paths on all par 3’s.  Rakes for the sand traps are on the carts.  You need to take it with you to the trap.  The sand waste areas adjacent to some fairways do not need to be raked.  You can ground your club in these waste areas.  You’ll find a lot of elevation changes, so expect some uneven lies.

Most of all – Have Fun!!!

Hole 1 – the longest par 4 on the course.  The fairway slopes to the right.  Play your drive a little left of center.

Hole 2 – watch your position on the tee.  The tee tends to point you to the right towards the traps on the right side of the fairway.  Make sure you align toward the green.  Play your tee shot left of the center.  Keep your approach on the left side of the green to avoid the trap in front.  This green slopes from front to back, which makes it hard to hold.

Hole 3 – Keep your second shot on the left side of the fairway in order to avoid the large waste area to the right of the fairway.  Sight on the 2 trees behind the green.  It is better to be left of the green than right.

Hole 4 – the perfect drive is 200 yards, so you may not need your driver.  There is a large waste area to the left of the fairway.  This is blind on the tee.  Keep your drive in the middle or right side of the fairway.

Hole 6 – slight dogleg right.  The fairway splits after you get over the hill.  The right side of the fairway will give you a better view of the green.  Try hitting your scond shot toward the pine tree right of the green.

Hole 8 – not long but tricky.  Use your driver to try to get over the hill.  Favor the center/ right side of the fairway for a better approach to the green.  This is a hard green to hold as it slopes from front to back.  Consider a pitch and run if it is a red flag.

Hole 9 – a 200 yard drive is perfect.  It will be even better if you draw the ball.  Long hitters can drive thru the fairway and end up on the down hill slope.  As you approach your second shot,  You’ll see the water to the right of the green.  The area left of the green is wide open and safer.

Hole 10 – the landing area for your drive slopes right.  Keep your second shot to the right side of the fairway for a better view of the green.  The water comes out a little in front of the green, so favor the right side of the green.

Hole 11 – uphill all the way.  The landing area for your drive slopes to the right, so aim little left of center to avoid the tree on the right.  Take an extra club on your approach.

Hole 12 – aim your drive toward the cluster of 3 traps on the right side of the fairway.  The green slopes from front to back.

Hole 14– dogleg left.  Keep your second shot right of center to avoid the waste area on the left.  It comes out further into the fairway then you think.  Use one extra club on your approach to this elevated green.

Hole 15 – watch out for the trap on the right side of the fair way on your drive.  The green is not ver deep, so you may want to hit short and roll up.

Hole 16 – This green has a lot of slope.  You are better off with an uphill putt short of the pin.

Hole 17 – watch out for the water on the second shot.  It comes into play more than you think.  Flavor the left side of the green.

Hole 18 – a 200 yard drive is good.  Favor left of center on your drive to have a better view of the green.  If you are right on the drive you’ll be in a bowl area and your next show will be blind.
