Start your round off with a short and straight par 4. A well placed tee shot will make for an easy approach to a large and relatively flat green.

A picturesque hole. Tee shot over water to a large green that is deeper than it apprears from the tee.

Keep it straight on this par 5 dog leg right. Errant tee shots right or left can be difficult to recover from on the longest hole on the course.

Number 4 plays 180 yards uphill. The green is protected by a bunker on the front right. Miss left off the tee and a steep hill on the side of the green will direct your ball into the river. Many rounds of golf have derailed on this hole.

A par 4 dog leg left rated the second most difficult hole. The reason - THE GREEN. A small green, surrounded by bunkers, that has many contours can give even the most confident putter fits.

A 140 yard par 3 that plays uphill. The green is very large so pay close attention to pin location and wind (above the trees).

OB on the left - OB on the right - and 200 yards? Whoa! Be straight and happy with a 4.

Get back that stroke from number 7 on this 160 yard par 3. Not much to this hole. A duffed tee shot can end up in the creek.

Finish with a hole that challenges golfers of all levels. If you are playing from the back tees you will need a VERY long tee shot to have a look at the green which is guarded by bunkers on both sides and has many undulations.
