Hole Description

Hole01

Par 4 - 392 yards

This classic “nail biter” makes the most experienced player pause to consider its historical significance. Many of the game’s greatest champions teed off here, just steps away from the Professional Shop, launching their legendary careers.

Fairly open, bounded by bunkers left and trees right. The tee shot is limited to 285 yards by a steep, rough-covered slope that descends to a broad semi-floodplain floor. A short approach shot leaves the ball on an incline, featuring thick rough.

The green is well located on a plateau edge and is framed by two attractive bunkers.

Hole02

Par 4 - 439 Yards

With multiple teeing options, an accurate drive avoids strategic bunkering on both sides of a narrow landing zone, 290-340-yards from the tee. Deep rough left, and trees right, supply challenging approach shots for errant drives.

The green is protected by deep bunkers front left and right. It is divided by a ridge, which can make it difficult to find the flagstick with the approach shot. The putting surface is multifaceted, requiring attention at approach and on the green.

Hole03

Par 3 - 197 Yards

The first par 3 on the course offers plenty of length but features a large approach to provide access onto the green, feeding along the ground. Dramatic bunkering right and left guard the preferred line.

The green site is elevated along the left and rear. A long shot will find a tricky recovery, from a deep depression rough, back onto the green.

Hole04

Par 4 – 430 Yards

This dogleg left features an elevated tee looking down into a multitude of risk/reward strategies. A brook running along the left side of the fairway, crosses the fairway approximately 350-yards out. The landing zone is pinched by right-side bunkers 300-yards away

The approach shot requires a moderate to long iron shot into an elevated putting surface, protected by bunkers right and short-left. A short approach shot finds a steep slope bringing the ball down a hill.

The green demands attention, with an undulation that creates two distinct putting levels, penalizing inaccuracy.

Hole05

Par 3 – 172 Yards

This short par 3 features a distinct challenge, matched by a multitude of pin placement options on the green.

The bunker complex includes a deep protection front right, with another left and one on each side of the green. The green is contoured to create a difficult par challenge.

Hole06

Par 4 – 430 Yards

An excellent long par 4 that presents a hole that is classically beautiful and challenging. It typically plays into the prevailing wind.

Fairway bunkers on each side of the landing zone, penalize wayward drives, making par unlikely.

A well struck driver will leave a mid- to long-iron approach into a slightly elevated green that sits atop a plateau.

The green features a false front and slopes from front-right to back-left creating numerous challenging hole positions.

Hole07

Par 4 – 434 Yards

This is the number one handicap hole for the membership and features a spectacular view from its elevated tee box.

There is a slight dogleg right feature — bringing a creek and rough mounds into play.

The creek challenges all levels requiring a carry of 300 yards from the championship tee.

Two fine shots are needed to gain the green surface. The approach requires a mid- to long-iron into an elevated green, with a steep slope off the right side and false front. Shots from around the green are made especially difficult by deep rough and varying elevations. The green is contoured, challenging the best putters.

Hole08

Par 5 – 522 Yards

This is the longest hole on the course. An accurate drive down the right side or to the bottom of the slope provides an open view to the green. The right side dogleg bunker is 320 yards from the tee. The left side dogleg bunkers begin at 270 yards and require a shot in excess of 300 yards to carry.

Two outside bunkers in the second landing area guard the right and left sides, beginning 110 yards from the center of the green.

Deep bunkers front right and left, protect the green from reaching in two.

Hole09

Par 4 – 358 Yards

This legendary short par four has a slightly elevated tee 358 yards away, bunkering frames the green, creating a number of hazards.

The putting surface is severely sloped, requiring a perfectly placed approach shot to match the pin placement. There is a sharp swale, bordering the right side of the green, creating a razors edge between a putt for birdie and an almost certain bogie.

The green is nestled in a large natural amphitheater, supplying dramatic viewing lines, accommodating thousands of spectators.
