The opening par 3 is the shortest hole on the course. There is a small bunker on the right well short of the green, and a berm with hedges and small trees surrounding the green on the left, back and right. The aggressive slopes on the front side of the green makes putting on this hole challenging.
The first par 4 is one of the easier ones on the course. Missing left lands you on the fairway of the 4th hole, but missing far right can land you out of bounds. There are two fairway bunkers that come into play for those who would lay up. The green is pretty level, but increasingly slopes to the right. This is one of the smallest greens and can be quite challenging to hit.
This is the most difficult par 3 on the course. It plays uphill from the tee to the hole, but it also slopes down again after the green. This makes it hard to hit the green although it is the largest green on the course. A shot to the right can mean trouble into trees or out of bounds. There is a fairway bunker 50 yards from the green that most golfers should get over.
One of the easiest holes on the course, this par 4 plays downhill. A tee shot on the right side of the fairway is ideal, but a miss on either side won't get you into too much trouble. The green is very level, but it is also protected by a bunker on the left and another on the far right. Chipping or putting too aggressively from right to left can land you in the left bunker.
A large, wide, gorgeous tree gets in between the tee and the hole on this par 3. A high shot is required to get over the tree to get on the green. There's a bunker between the tree and the green and another behind the green. Missing left, right, or long can make for a difficult second shot through the trees and bushes. The green, however, is the flattest and easiest on the course.
The tee shot from this par 4 can be intimidating as it presents a narrow window to get to the fairway from an island tee box. The fairway opens up in the middle and narrows again closer to the green. There is a bunker to the right of the green and an obstacle in front of the green. Another water hazard is to the far left of the green. The slopes on this green can be challenging to read.
This par 3 can play harder than it seems. Most of the trouble is on the right side with trees and bushes. Landing and staying on the green can be quite difficult being that the green is not very large. The right side of the green slopes quite aggressively which makes chipping and putting quite challenging.
This par 4 is the hardest hole on the course. a pond separates the fairway from the green and makes it very difficult to drive the green. There is a fairway bunker 130 yards from the green. A miss to the right lands you out of bounds and to the left can leave you playing through the trees. In front of the green is water, the right is a road and out of bounds and the rest is surrounded by a tall berm. There is one big slope from the front right to the back left of the green which makes landing and staying on the green a challenge.
The longest hole on the course is this par 4. A water hazard with an island takes around 220 yards from the tee to cross, but laying up and playing it safe can still get you on the green in 2 shots. It has one bunker on the right side of the green. This is one of the hardest holes on the course due to its length and hazards, but the green is fairly level and easy to read.
The second shortest par 3, the 10th tee is just a bit further back from the 1st. This brings the small bunker on the right into play a bit more, and makes hitting the green a bit more challenging. Chipping and putting will be just as challenging as hole number 1.
This par 4 is shorter than the 2nd tee and makes it easier to hit the green in 1 shot. Missing left or right can still get you in trouble but with the distance being less, it is less likely. The two fairway bunkers still come into play for those who would lay up. Being one of the smallest greens, it is still difficult to hit, but being on the green, puts are fairly easy to read.
This is the longest par 3 on the course. The tee is elevated, but it still plays uphill from the tee to the hole. This brings the bunker, that's 150 yards from the tee, more into play. Aim for the front middle to left side of the green as the ball can easily run over the green, and landing on the right also tends to kick right.
The easiest hole on the course, although it may not seem like it when standing on the tee box. The tree in the fairway between the tee and the green shouldn't be any trouble. The center to right side of the fairway is the ideal target as the ball tends to bounce left. The green doesn't slope much and is quite easy to read. The bunker on the far right of the green doesn't come into play much but the one bordering the green on the left does.
It is easier to get over the large tree between the tee and the hole on this par 3 than on hole number 5 due to the shorter distance. The bunker between the tree and the green doesn't come into play as much and the one behind the green does. Most of the trouble comes from missing right or long. Once on the green, reading putts should be easy.
There are a lot of obstacles visible from the tee box on this par 4. The water hazard about 50 yards ahead shouldn't come into play, but the narrow gap to reach the fairway can be quite intimidating. Missing right or left will leave you with a second shot through the trees. The water hazard to the far left of the green, the bunker to the far right and the obstacles right in front of the green rarely present any problems. The slopes on this green do, however, as they are quite difficult to read.
This is a mid-range par 3 with a green that can be difficult. Avoid the bush on the right before the green. Downhill putts can see your ball running off the green if not careful.
The angle that this tee box has towards the green makes it quite challenging. It brings the fairway bunker and the trees on the left more into play. The green seems drivable for those that can hit it long, but the pond in front of the green makes that a very difficult shot. Aiming for the middle to right side of the fairway is the sensible play, but too far right and you could be out of bounds. The long slope on the green also makes putting challenging.
With only about 200 yards to clear the water hazard, many will be tempted to drive the ball over the water; however, many experienced golfers will still lay up on this hole. It is still possible to get on the green in 2 after laying up. Although this is a difficult hole, it becomes a lot easier once you get close to or on the green.
