Back Nine

Hole 10Hole #10
An environmental area that is situated about 135 yards from the green divides the tenth hole . Only the longest hitters need to worry about laying up as the average golfer can't reach the hazard any way. The tenth is tree lined on both sides and requires an accurate tee shot. The approach is usually from about 150 to 200 yards out. The green is guarded by a bunker on the right that catches most errant shots. The tenth green is one of the flattest on the course
(Environmental area - 250 yards from Blue Tee Box)


Hole #11
The 11th is a tough par 3 that usually plays into the wind. It typically plays between 148 and 211 yards but can play longer due to the wind. Large bunkers to the right and left guard the large green.


Hole #12
The par 5 12th may rank 2nd hardest hole on the course by the card but many say it's the toughest on the course. Like the 11th, the par 5 12th seems to always play into the wind. A long straight tee shot is a must. There is a forced carry off the tee and the further right the ball is hit, the longer the forced carry. Making this hole tougher are the trees guarding the left side. After you negotiate the tee shot you still have another forced carry for your second shot. There is also a bunker that guards the right side of the landing area. The approach shot to the green is to an elevated two tier green that is surrounded by deep grass bunkers.



Hole #13
Finally, golfers get a chance to catch their breath! The 13th is a short par 4 that is actually drivable by long hitters. However, it is a blind shot with out of bounds creeping in close on the left side. The smart golfers lay up and leave themselves a 100-yard downhill approach shot to the generous sized green.






Hole #14
The 14th is a short par three that has a severe downhill elevation change. The 14th plays between 135 and 166 yards. Gauging distance is to key to this approach shot. This is probably our most birdied hole.







Hole #15
The fifteenth is a straightaway par 4 that is cut through the trees. There is generous fairway in the landing areas for the tee shot. There are bunkers on both sides of the fairway. Pinpoint accuracy on the approach shot is a must in order to have an opportunity for birdie on the two level green.


Hole #16
The sixteenth is a par 4 that is medium in length and blind tee shot. There is a generous landing area but a missed shot left could leave you out of bounds while a missed shot right could leave you blocked by trees. Your approach shot must carry a visually intimidating environmental area that ends about 15 yards short of the front edge of the green, which is guarded by two bunkers.


Hole #17 dogleg right
The 17th is a beautiful risk-reward par 5. Measuring 525 from the back tees it is possible to cut the corner of the dogleg and make it into a two shot hole. However, there is a lake - which many risk takers will find their ball swimming in - that guards the front left side of the green. For the more conservative player, #17 is a 3 shot par 5 that is has its dangers but is manageable.




Hole #18
The 18th is a straight away uphill par 4 that is a great finishing hole. There are bunkers on both sides of the fairway. Three bunkers guard the large two-tier green. Par is an excellent score on this challenging finishing hole.
