The first hole cascades down the hill, playing toward beautiful views of Mt. Evans. You have options here, interesting natural features and vistas. Right out of the box, the roll and slope of the fairway lets you know that this course plays the ground as it is.
This little par 3 packs a big punch. A pitch shot to the smallest green on the course. The green slopes severely, and bunkers catch shots that are short or long. Chipping and putting will be difficult on this hole.
The third is an unusual hole. Take the tee shot as far down the hill as you'd like, setting up a pitch across the barranca to a natural green site. The strategy off the tee will vary depending on hole location.
This hole plays into the prevailing wind. A low-profile green makes depth perception difficult. Cross-bunkers about 100 yards short of the green add to the deception. The green falls away to the left, but taking the safe route to the right leaves a difficult downhill chip.
The barranca on the left defines the hole. The approach is slightly uphill, with another deception bunker on the right side. The green sits in a small natural amphitheater and has great subtle movement.
A long par 3 that is very challenging psychologically because of the length, yet plays shorter because of a kick slope short of the green.
This par 4 plays downwind, to one of the smallest targets on the course. The green sits across the barranca that runs the length of the fairway on the right side.
A classic short par 4. Big hitters can go for the green off the tee, but if they fail, they'll face an awkward pitch to a small putting surface with dramatic internal contours. There may be some twos here, but there will be some sixes as well.
A nice old-fashioned up-and-over hole. The longer you are off the tee, the more you play to a hanging lie. The green runs from left to right, so the left side is the target off the tee.
