Hole #1 - Par 4

Men's Handicap - 7
Ladies Handicap - 5
Black Handicap - 5


Pro Tip: A fun and challenging opening hole, this par 4 is well guarded on both sides by numerous trees making an accurate tee shot a priority here. Ideal positioning here will favor the right side of the fairway to open up the green on this dogleg left. The green is guarded by a large trap left and large trees on the right making an accurate approach shot important. Pay close attention to the prevailing wind, which will likely be in your face, and be prepared to take an extra club for the approach, as many players are fooled by the strength of the wind and fall short. Try to land your approach in the middle of the green to avoid all the trouble in front.

Hole #2 - Par 5

Men's Handicap - 11
Ladies Handicap - 9
Black Handicap - 9


Pro Tip: This straightaway par 5 affords an excellent opportunity for par or birdie for many players. A relatively short hole, providing a comfortable landing area off the tee, this hole yields numerous sub-par scores. The challenge increases as the player approaches the small, well guarded green. A huge trap guards almost the entire front of the small, challenging green, and errant shots right or left will leave a difficult short shot to the pin. When the pin is on the left side of the green, be sure to stay below the hole! Once again the prevailing wind can prove to be a challenge here. Watch your club selection.

Hole #3 - Par 3

Men's Handicap - 17
Ladies Handicap - 17
Black Handicap - 17


Pro Tip: This is the shortest hole on the course but by no means the easiest. The small back to front sloping green is virtually surrounded by sand traps, making an accurate tee shot critical. Generally, there is a helping wind here, crossing from left to right, so careful club selection is important, as balls long of the green will find the large bunker, or trees, making recovery shots to a green running away from the player very difficult.

Hole #4 - Par 4

Men's Handicap - 1
Ladies Handicap - 3
Black Handicap - 3


Pro Tip: The true definition of a risk, reward hole. A very well designed dogleg right, this hole challenges the player either from the tee, or for the approach. Water is in play from the end of the intermediate landing area, and along the left side of the fairway from there to the green. A comfortable, wide landing area for a lay up shot invites the player to land short of the water straight away, but from there a long, dangerous shot remains to a green guarded on the left by water, and behind and to the right by out of bounds. If the player wishes to have a shorter, easier approach, then he must hit a long shot over the narrow corner, flirting with water, sand and out of bounds. A delicious dilemma faces every player on each visit to this tee.

Hole #5 - Par 5

Men's Handicap - 3
Ladies Handicap - 1
Black Handicap - 1


Pro Tip: Every golfer breathes a little easier once this great hole is behind them. A very long, challenging uphill test of skill, this hole requires accuracy and length off the tee and then an accurate utility club or middle iron layup for the third shot over the water to the green. Only the longest hitters will be able to reach this hole in two shots, which may reward them with a birdie or better, or the alternative of a large number after an encounter with the coulee left or the water guarding the green. Many a promising round has been demolished after an encounter with holes #4 and #5, so proceed with caution!

Hole #6 - Par 4

Men's Handicap - 7
Ladies Handicap - 5
Black Handicap - 5


Pro Tip: This generally down wind hole doglegs sharply to the right at the 150-yard marker. Heavily treed on the right side, the sensible tee shot must be placed on the left side of the fairway to allow for a view of the green. Large sand traps frame this green on both sides, so an accurate approach is advisable. Club selection will once again be affected by the following wind, so choose with care, as putts below the hole on this surface are an advantage.

Hole #7 - Par 4

Men's Handicap - 9
Ladies Handicap - 11
Black Handicap - 11


Pro Tip: One of the shortest par 4 holes on the course, a good drive can set up the player for a chance at a birdie. Once again accuracy is important, because shots lost to the right will encounter a large grove of spruce trees, making access to the green very doubtful. While there is ample room to the left, drives ending too far off line will force the player to shoot over the very deep sand trap guarding the left side of the green. It is once again imperative to land your approach short of the pin on the green. One of the most sloping greens on the course, any ball above the pin, and not to mention over the back of the green, will virtually guarantee a three putt or worse. Be careful with club selection.

Hole #8 - Par 3

Men's Handicap - 13
Ladies Handicap - 15
Black Handicap - 15


Pro Tip: A short hole with an elevated tee to a downhill green. Sounds like an easy target. But wait! This is the smallest green on the course, very narrow, with large bunkers in close proximity to the putting surface. Club selection is very important as well as an accurate shot to negotiate the narrow opening at the front of the green. Shots missing left or long also make for a difficult up and down for par because of the tricky undulations on the green.

Hole #9 - Par 4

Men's Handicap - 15
Ladies Handicap - 13
Black Handicap - 13


Pro Tip: A challenging dogleg right hole, heavily treed to the right off the tees and also close to the green. The ideal tee shot will be well left to avoid the overhanging branches and to offer an unobstructed view of the green. Balls landing far left will be open to the green, but may be subject to uneven lies, so do your best to negotiate the fairly narrow alley way between the lines of trees bordering the fairway on both sides. The green provides a large and level surface. Watch your club selection, as it is deep from front to back.
