HOLE BY HOLE
HOLE 1 - Par 5 - Handicap 11
Multiple choices off the tee, with a tee shot across the creek giving you a chance to reach the green in two.
HOLE 2 - Par 4 - Handicap 17
Three bunkers around the landing area, pinch in on the aggressive play off the tee. Play for position on this shorter par 4.
HOLE 3 - Par 4 - Handicap 5
Let it all hang out here as a drive over the ridge will catch the down slope and pick up additional length on this longest par 4.
HOLE 4 - Par 3 - Handicap 15
Distance control is key on the shortest par 3 on the course. The shot gets increasingly difficult the farther right.
HOLE 5 - Par 5 - Handicap 7
A shot left of the carry bunker will leave a blind second shot, while a play over the bunker can catch a down slope.
HOLE 6 - Par 4 - Handicap 1
A long drive between the bunkers is ideal here, unless you can fly the native area on the left and stop the ball short of the far arroyo.
HOLE 7 - Par 4 - Handicap 13
A short drivable par 4. Multiple options of play here as the fairway also wraps around behind the bunkers.
HOLE 8 - Par 3 - Handicap 9
This hole is modeled after the famed Redan hole. Land the ball on the front and let the slope work it back to the pin.
HOLE 9 - Par 4 - Handicap 3
Long and straight on this hole to avoid the various bunkers that challenge the tee shot.
HOLE 10 - Par 4 - Handicap 18
Play as close to, or over the left bunker, to set up the best angle into the green
HOLE 11 - Par 3 - Handicap 16
A high soft shot into the prevailing wind is ideal here as the green is shallow and wide.
HOLE 12 - Par 5 - Handicap 6
Bombs away off this tee, it’s the longest hole on the golf course. Shots skirting the bunker will pick up some additional distance.
HOLE 13 - Par 3 - Handicap 4
Par is a good score on this long, intimidating par 3. Shots played safely to the left will not funnel onto the green.
HOLE 14 - Par 4 - Handicap 12
A split fairway with the right-hand option requiring a longer carry, but shortening the hole by 20-30 yards.
HOLE 15 - Par 5 - Handicap 14
This sharp dogleg can be shortened substantially with a long carry uphill over one of the further bunkers.
HOLE 16 - Par 3 - Handicap 10
The widest part of the green lies in the area between the bunkers. Opt for the longer club and be wary of the wind.
HOLE 17 - Par 4 - Handicap 2
A cape style hole, bite off as much of the carry as your dare. Safe shot to the right of the bunkers will leave a blind second shot.
HOLE 18 - Par 4 - Handicap 8
Stay left of the bunker in the middle of the fairway, leading to blind approach. Or, shoot the gap between the stream and bunker for a better angle to treacherous green.
