The best starting hole is one that does not place demands on a player’s talent. The requirement to play the ball close to a hazard in order to gain a reward is evident in the bunkers on the left side of the hole. In further looking down the fairway at the green the bunkers at the green are on the right, which allows the most open approach to the putting surface.

The 2nd hole raises the level of difficulty for the player. The tee shot is expansive and plays over a small creek and a series of small waterfalls down the right side developing into a large lake which boarders the right side of the green. The green is somewhat deceptive, this is because of the size of the features, bunkers, and landforms at the green. This causes the player to make some adjustments to their approach.

The 3rd hole is the first par 3 of the round. It plays over a spectacular lake with the green sitting above a beautiful stone wall and a number of bunkers both in front and behind. From the tee it is not possible to see that the green angles away slightly and the player must hit a slightly longer shot in order to reach the flagstick. The right side of the green is completely open and players who are timid in their approach have plenty of bailout space, making the hole playable by everybody.

The 4th hole, the first par 5 on the course, allows numerous options on the second shot. The tee shot is played to a crest in the hill, bordering a large bunker, which sets up a view of the green along a creek and a series of waterfalls which pass directly on the right side of the putting surface. A large tree guards the front of the green and it has a considerable effect on the players tactical approach. No matter the pin placement the quality of this hole is ultimately strategic and the player is faced with a serious of decisions which adds to the enjoyment of the round.

The second par 3 falls at the 5th hole. It is fairly long and plays across an expansive valley. The green is heavy bunkered on the right side which also falls away down the slope. The back of the green is raised slightly, which is a classic of many long par 3s in the world. This causes the player that little extra to get the ball up onto that deck.

The 6th hole is a conversation piece. It is extremely short and offers opportunities to all players to become a hero or a goat. A creek crosses the green directly in front and along the side of the approaching fairway. If the player does not take notice of the location of the pin, disaster awaits. Ultimately, the lasting memory of this hole is of those bold players who stand on the tee 75 feet higher than the green and take their driver and attempt to put the ball on the green. They might end up in the creek, they could end up in a bunker, they could also end up in the rough on the left side of the hole. But if it reaches the green the chance of that glorious 2, an eagle, is always there.

The 7th hole, the second par 5, is a true three shoter. The tee shot for some can carry the creek while others must layup. However, the second shot becomes the key. A pine tree in the left side of the fairway causes players to manage their location depending upon where their tee shot ended up. The location of the pine is primary to the approach to the green. Again, the player must notice where the flag has been placed. The further the pin is to the right the more the player wants to favor the right side of the fairway. The pins on the left side are considerably easier but this green itself, especially on the right is nothing short of diabolical because the slopes fall away from the pin position on the extreme right. Requiring complete precision on the approach.

The 8th hole plays out of a chute of trees. The perfect line is directly over a bunker on the horizon line, 150 yards out. This puts the ball in the perfect landing area. From there the medium to long shot to the green plays across a large creek into a green that seems to sit in a meadow. There are some nice large oaks left of the green and distant views beyond. The putting green, while large enough to receive a long approach, has fairly steep slopes. The player would be smart to keep the ball below the hole because putts from above the hole will be treacherous.

The tee shot at the 9th plays to the crest of the hill, decorated on the right by bunkers and true to form those bunkers are meaningful. The green itself is another study in deception, falling below the approach to the green only the top of the flag stick is visible when the hole is on the right. The back of the green is visible from the fairway but it causes certain concern with all players as to the exact location of the pin when it’s in theoretically the easiest position. The green has considerable movement and putts are very important, so playing the ball smart off the tee gives the player the advantage they need.

At the 10th hole, the tee shot to that fairway requires the player to basically jump on it. It’s a long way and a target bunker in the far slope is an indicator to where the tee shot should be played based on the wind. The green setting is exceptional, a large wooden slope rises behind the green at some distance and the wetland to the right is a large open space. The green itself is completely surrounded by bunkers and many players will play safe to the left. However, anyone wishing to make a low score must take a considerable chance.

The 11th hole features a creek on the right side of the fairway. The tees are placed on a hillside and play into a rising slope. Tee shots well to the left provide the player with a better view of the green. The green has several sections, the left side is slightly raised and by far the most difficult of the group. Pin placements on the back right require only that the player be bold from the fairway to make the ball go far enough. However, the long slope down from the right collar will quickly take away that birdie or par and turn it into a bogey.

The 12th hole is the shortest par 3. It is heavily guarded by bunkers and the green is divided into two sections. The front section is somewhat forgiving, though fairly fast. The back section however is a plateau, shots to that pin placement must be precise because the very back edge falls away into a grass hollow behind the green. The worst mistake would be to the left into an abysmal gully running the entire left side of the hole.

The 13th hole is a dramatic tee shot, playing to a plateau fairway and across a series of target bunkers. With a good tee shot it is possible to reach the green in 2, if not there is plenty of fairway short of the green. The putting surface itself is a unique form from the golden era called a punch bowl. Any shots to the periphery near a flag that miss to the outside leave the player with an almost impossible recovery.

The 14th is reminiscent of one of the great tee shots in the world at 11 at Muirfield in Scotland. The perfect line is directly over a rock in the distance. A series of bunkers run diagonally from right to left but the rock indicates the perfect line. Once in the fairway the difficulty continues. Two bunkers lie between the landing area and the front of the green, obscuring the front collar. This makes it quite difficult to gage the distance to the hole and many players end up short. However, once on the putting surface the player need only deal with the slope and speed of the green.

The short par 4 on the back nine occurs at 15. The tee shot plays toward and along a pond and just across the pond, above a beautiful stone wall, lies the putting surface. That green is L-shaped. Any flagsticks to the right require the player to hit short in the fairway. When the hole is placed to the left on the green, just above the wall, it is necessary to hit as far as possible down the right side enabling an angle into the green which will keep the ball on the putting surface.

The 16th hole is the longest par 3 on the golf course. A pond lies in front of the green and two bunkers guard the right front.

The 17th hole is a powerful par 4. It plays slightly uphill and the large lake at the clubhouse is visible under the trees on the left side. The landing area is ample and the approach to the green again requires the player to pay attention to the pin location. The right side of the green is completely open and there is a funneling hillside to further assist the timid. However, pins placed to the left are much more demanding over the bunkers, though a rising backslope does allow some room for mistakes. The putting surface fits a very long par 4, its large.

The view from 18 is one of the unforgettable memories of the golf course. A narrow section of fairway winds through a complex of bunkers on the tee shot. I refer to this as Smoltzville named after Cy Young award winning, long hitting John Smoltz of the Atlanta Braves. This was to enable a player who can hit the ball a long way to reach the green in two. Those who decide not to try Smoltzville are then required to hit a layup shot and then pitch to the green. That pitch is not an easy effort either! If the pin is place in the back, the backslope of the green is somewhat friendly. However, all pin locations in the forward section and in the middle are very difficult to reach from the right side of the green.

Course Overview
435 yards
Hole #1
"The best starting hole is one that does not place demands on a player’s talent. The requirement to play the ball close to a hazard in order to gain a reward is evident in the bunkers on the left side of the hole. In further looking down the fairway at the green the bunkers at the green are on the right, which allows the most open approach to the putting surface."

Hole #2

"The 2nd hole raises the level of difficulty for the player. The tee shot is expansive and plays over a small creek and a series of small waterfalls down the right side developing into a large lake which boarders the right side of the green. The green is somewhat deceptive, this is because of the size of the features, bunkers, and landforms at the green. This causes the player to make some adjustments to their approach. "

Hole #3

"The 3rd hole is the first par 3 of the round. It plays over a spectacular lake with the green sitting above a beautiful stone wall and a number of bunkers both in front and behind. From the tee it is not possible to see that the green angles away slightly and the player must hit a slightly longer shot in order to reach the flagstick. The right side of the green is completely open and players who are timid in their approach have plenty of bailout space, making the hole playable by everybody."

Hole #4

"The 4th hole, the first par 5 on the course, allows numerous options on the second shot. The tee shot is played to a crest in the hill, bordering a large bunker, which sets up a view of the green along a creek and a series of waterfalls which pass directly on the right side of the putting surface. A large tree guards the front of the green and it has a considerable effect on the players tactical approach. No matter the pin placement the quality of this hole is ultimately strategic and the player is faced with a serious of decisions which adds to the enjoyment of the round."

Hole #5

"The second par 3 falls at the 5th hole. It is fairly long and plays across an expansive valley. The green is heavy bunkered on the right side which also falls away down the slope. The back of the green is raised slightly, which is a classic of many long par 3s in the world. This causes the player that little extra to get the ball up onto that deck."

Hole #6

"The 6th hole is a conversation piece. It is extremely short and offers opportunities to all players to become a hero or a goat. A creek crosses the green directly in front and along the side of the approaching fairway. If the player does not take notice of the location of the pin, disaster awaits. Ultimately, the lasting memory of this hole is of those bold players who stand on the tee 75 feet higher than the green and take their driver and attempt to put the ball on the green. They might end up in the creek, they could end up in a bunker, they could also end up in the rough on the left side of the hole. But if it reaches the green the chance of that glorious 2, an eagle, is always there."

Hole #7
x
"The 7th hole, the second par 5, is a true three shoter. The tee shot for some can carry the creek while others must layup. However, the second shot becomes the key. A pine tree in the left side of the fairway causes players to manage their location depending upon where their tee shot ended up. The location of the pine is primary to the approach to the green. Again, the player must notice where the flag has been placed. The further the pin is to the right the more the player wants to favor the right side of the fairway. The pins on the left side are considerably easier but this green itself, especially on the right is nothing short of diabolical because the slopes fall away from the pin position on the extreme right. Requiring complete precision on the approach."

Hole #8
x
"The 8th hole plays out of a chute of trees. The perfect line is directly over a bunker on the horizon line, 150 yards out. This puts the ball in the perfect landing area. From there the medium to long shot to the green plays across a large creek into a green that seems to sit in a meadow. There are some nice large oaks left of the green and distant views beyond. The putting green, while large enough to receive a long approach, has fairly steep slopes. The player would be smart to keep the ball below the hole because putts from above the hole will be treacherous."
Par 4
-Bob Cupp
x
"The tee shot at the 9th plays to the crest of the hill, decorated on the right by bunkers and true to form those bunkers are meaningful. The green itself is another study in deception, falling below the approach to the green only the top of the flag stick is visible when the hole is on the right. The back of the green is visible from the fairway but it causes certain concern with all players as to the exact location of the pin when it’s in theoretically the easiest position. The green has considerable movement and putts are very important, so playing the ball smart off the tee gives the player the advantage they need."

Hole #10

"At the 10th hole, the tee shot to that fairway requires the player to basically jump on it. It’s a long way and a target bunker in the far slope is an indicator to where the tee shot should be played based on the wind. The green setting is exceptional, a large wooden slope rises behind the green at some distance and the wetland to the right is a large open space. The green itself is completely surrounded by bunkers and many players will play safe to the left. However, anyone wishing to make a low score must take a considerable chance."

Hole #11
x
"The 11th hole features a creek on the right side of the fairway. The tees are placed on a hillside and play into a rising slope. Tee shots well to the left provide the player with a better view of the green. The green has several sections, the left side is slightly raised and by far the most difficult of the group. Pin placements on the back right require only that the player be bold from the fairway to make the ball go far enough. However, the long slope down from the right collar will quickly take away that birdie or par and turn it into a bogey."

Hole #12
x
"The 12th hole is the shortest par 3. It is heavily guarded by bunkers and the green is divided into two sections. The front section is somewhat forgiving, though fairly fast. The back section however is a plateau, shots to that pin placement must be precise because the very back edge falls away into a grass hollow behind the green. The worst mistake would be to the left into an abysmal gully running the entire left side of the hole."

Hole #13
x
"The 13th hole is a dramatic tee shot, playing to a plateau fairway and across a series of target bunkers. With a good tee shot it is possible to reach the green in 2, if not there is plenty of fairway short of the green. The putting surface itself is a unique form from the golden era called a punch bowl. Any shots to the periphery near a flag that miss to the outside leave the player with an almost impossible recovery."

Hole #14
x
"The 14th is reminiscent of one of the great tee shots in the world at 11 at Muirfield in Scotland. The perfect line is directly over a rock in the distance. A series of bunkers run diagonally from right to left but the rock indicates the perfect line. Once in the fairway the difficulty continues. Two bunkers lie between the landing area and the front of the green, obscuring the front collar. This makes it quite difficult to gage the distance to the hole and many players end up short. However, once on the putting surface the player need only deal with the slope and speed of the green."

Hole #15
x
"The short par 4 on the back nine occurs at 15. The tee shot plays toward and along a pond and just across the pond, above a beautiful stone wall, lies the putting surface. That green is L-shaped. Any flagsticks to the right require the player to hit short in the fairway. When the hole is placed to the left on the green, just above the wall, it is necessary to hit as far as possible down the right side enabling an angle into the green which will keep the ball on the putting surface."
Par 4
-Bob Cupp

Hole #16
x
"The 16th hole is the longest par 3 on the golf course. A pond lies in front of the green and two bunkers guard the right front. None of this is complex enough to be unfair for a long shot, but the player must, without question, make an extra effort when the pin is set in the back right or be extra careful when the pin is on the left front."
Par 3

Hole #17
x
"The 17th hole is a powerful par 4. It plays slightly uphill and the large lake at the clubhouse is visible under the trees on the left side. The landing area is ample and the approach to the green again requires the player to pay attention to the pin location. The right side of the green is completely open and there is a funneling hillside to further assist the timid. However, pins placed to the left are much more demanding over the bunkers, though a rising backslope does allow some room for mistakes. The putting surface fits a very long par 4, its large. Players on the wrong end of the green may find themselves with a 100-foot putt."
