With bent grass fairways and our grounds crews dedicated hard work, we have grown a reputation for excellence.

HOLE #1

– PAR 4 –

Bombs away! Hit it long and straight down this bowled fairway that will funnel shots down either side toward the middle. The closer you can get to the green off tee the better.

HOLE #2

– PAR 3 –

Precise yardage is required off the tee on this medium to long length par 3. Take into account the wind and be sure to avoid the left side which is guarded by steep drop offs and the Sawmill Creek.

HOLE #3

– PAR 4 –

This hole is all about the tee shot. Play it safe and hit a long iron on fairway wood out towards the 150 yard marker or bring out the big stick and take a shot at carrying it all the way to the green. The green is well protected by bunkers short and left and water right.

HOLE #4

– PAR 4 –

Avoid the right side of this hole which is covered in fescue and bunkers. A safe tee shot is a long iron or wood off the tee. The big hitter can take a chance and go for the green but that doesn’t always mean a birdie is on the way with a well protected green.

HOLE #5

– PAR 3 –

This tricky little par 3 is well guarded by large bunkers and mounds of fescue and bluegrass rough and most of the green is not visible from the tee. Take the wind into account and commit to your shot.

HOLE #6

– PAR 5 –

This dog leg right par 5 offers a risk reward tee shot. Play it safe with a high tee shot aimed between the two fairway bunkers to a shallow landing area leaving a long second shot into a green well guarded in front. The big hitters can take a line right off the second fairway bunker with a carry of about 300 yards off the tee leaving a short iron shot and a real chance at eagle.

HOLE #7

– PAR 4 –

The longest par 4 on the golf course can be a beast if the wind is in your face. Bunkers and O.B. guard the left side and mounds of thick rough line the right side. Hit it long and straight down the fairway in order to attach the narrow kidney shaped green.

HOLE #8

– PAR 5 –

A great par 5 with bunkers waiting down the right side and O.B. all the way down the left. A generous fairway allows the longer player to be rewarded with a shot at the green in two. Birdies can still be made the hard way with a layup on the second shot just over the bunker in the fairway.

HOLE #9

– PAR 3 –

The closing hole on the front 9 is a solid par 3 that requires an accurate tee shot. Errant shots left and right of this green can make par very difficult to achieve with bunkers, mounds of rough and water all waiting.

HOLE #10

– PAR 4 –

Rip a tee shot over or to the left of the grass bunker to leave a short iron approach into this elevated green. Add yardage to the approach to account for the slight elevation change. Be sure to avoid the greenside bunkers right and left.

HOLE #11

– PAR 4 –

This straight away par 4 rewards a good accurate tee shot that finds the fairway surrounded by mounding fescue and O.B. all the way down the left side. The green slopes from back to front and will hold a long approach shot.

HOLE #12

– PAR 4 –

This difficult par 4 requires nothing less than pin point accuracy from tee to green. O.B. left and water right put a premium on hitting the fairway. Water in front and along the right side of this undulating green make par feel like a birdie.

HOLE #13

– PAR 3 –

Our signature hole gives the look of an island green from the tee. The green is surrounded by water on the left, right and short sides so bare down and commit to the yardage.

HOLE #14

– PAR 5 –

This dog leg left par 5 is a definite birdie hole for the long hitters. A Tee shot hugging the left side of the fairway and cutting off yardage will be rewarded with a mid iron approach into the slightly elevated green. Errant tee shots that find the fescue left or water right can easily turn this hole into a bogey or worse.

HOLE #15

– PAR 3 –

The tee shot on this hole can be deceptive. Even though the tee is slightly elevated, the yardage is all carry to the green due to the bunkers guarding the front. Pick a number and stick with it.

HOLE #16

– PAR 5 –

Another birdie opportunity awaits the player on this dog leg right par 5. A good accurate tee shot will leave the player with a long iron into a very large and flat green.

HOLE #17

– PAR 3 –

The last par 3 on the course requires an accurate short iron tee shot. The green is well protected by bunker and hazards on all sides.

HOLE #18

– PAR 5 –

18 is a great finishing hole. Fire it long and straight and it will roll down the hill to a landing area leaving you with the option to go for it in two or try and make birdie the hard way. No guts, no glory on this hole!
