Hole Description

A good opening hole, into a prevailing wind with a slight dogleg right. A well placed drive to the left center of the fairway provides an appropriate angle to the green.
Slightly uphill par four with a demand for accuracy off the tee. A long tee shot across the grass mounding on the left will reward the player with a good angle to this expansive green. The second shot will play longer than it appears.
A picturesque three in a coastal valley setting. Demand for accuracy is critical with two streams flowing left and right into a pond fronting the green. Don't let the beauty of this hole distract you.
A straightaway par four with a premium on accuracy off the tee. Driver not necessary with hazard along left side of fairway. The right side of green is shallow and well protected by bunkers.
A lengthy par five uphill. Avoid large fairway bunker on right side. Position second shot to left side of fairway for the ideal approach. A well lofted shot to the green will be rewarded.
This uphill par three will play one club longer. The green sits thirty feet above the tee, at the highest point on the course. Any weak shots will roll back off this steeply faced green.
This downhill par four requires a well placed tee shot down the left side. A carefully played second shot will provide a birdie opportunity.
A heroic par five reachable in two, but water and bunkers around the green demand accuracy. To lay up, favor the right side of the sloping fairway to avoid water left. Less club is desired for proper lay up.
The shortest par four on the front nine and a good chance for birdie. Drive down the left side of the fairway for best angle to a very large and undulating green.
