Hole-by-Hole Take a hole-by-hole tour of our world-class course.
Hole #1 Par 5
Big hitters can carry the right bunker on the tee shot, making it reachable in two – but be sure your tee shot does not end up in this bunker. The rough to the right side of the fairway off the tee makes it impossible to reach the green in two. With a south wind, this is a birdie hole.
Hole #2 Par 4
The left bunkers can be carried on a calm day and there is a lot of room to the right. The prevailing south wind will make this hole harder than it appears to be. Get your par and proceed.
Hole #3 Par 4
Grip it and rip it on this normally downwind hole. If the pin is on the right side of the green, keep your drive to the left or you will face a difficult second shot. Good birdie possibility.
Hole #4 Par 3
The wind is most often right-to-left. Stay out of the bunkers or you will face an almost impossible par.
Hole #5 Par 5
This hole gets longer with a strong south wind. On a calm day the bunkers on the left can be carried off the tee making the hole reachable in two. Keep your 2nd shot out of the rough or you will face a very difficult shot to the green.
Hole #6 Par 4
Good, short par 4. Fairway bunker on the right teases players into taking a gamble with the tee shot. Stay away from the right greenside bunker. Play smart and take advantage of this birdie hole.
Hole #7 Par 4
Good, long par 4 into a prevailing south wind. There is plenty of room down the right side of the fairway from the tee. Avoid the left rough; it is impossible to reach the green in two from here. If you hit it left, take your medicine and play for bogie. Green is very undulating.
Hole #8 Par 3
Pin location makes this hole. You have to be very precise if you go for a left-side pin placement. Beware of front bunker and rough over the left side of green. Play more for the middle and take your par. You can think birdie with a front-right pin placement.
Hole #9 Par 4
Good, long par 4 into a prevailing south wind. There is plenty of room own the right side of the fairway from the tee. Avoid the left rough; it is impossible to reach the green in two from here. If you hit it left, take your medicine and play for bogie. Green is very undulating.
Hole #10 Par 3
Club selection is crucial on this hole. Proper distance is critical for the good score. Watch for subtle undulations on the front-right part of the green. Rock outcropping in the right-rear bunker makes for some interesting results.
Hole #11 Par 5
Prevailing wind quarters left-to-right and into the player. Very pretty hole. Lots of room for your tee shot. Long green makes back left pin location very difficult to get close. This is a birdie hole if the pin is in the front or middle.
Hole #12 Par 4
Watch for flying lug nuts because wheels may begin to fly. This is Tom Fazio’s best creation. Prevailing wind makes this a very long hole into a very big green. Don’t get too comfortable if you reach this green in 2. It is very difficult to putt because of all the tiers.
Hole #13 Par 4
Take a deep breath after playing the 12th hole, but don’t get too relaxed. Good tee shot required regardless of what club you use. With wind at your back and the green protected by bunkers, your second shot must be precise. Fun hole that will lend itself to many pars.
Hole #14 Par 3
If downwind, this par 3 appears to be wide open. Deep, front bunker poses problems. Because of this large green, getting a chip shot close to the pin is nearly impossible. Proper club selection is essential. Very difficult to make a huge score.
Hole #15 Par 4
Maybe the hardest hole on the back 9. Long par 4 with lots of danger lurking. Prevailing wind is right-to-left. This hole almost always requires a tee shot in the fairway to reach the green in two. Second shot to slightly elevated green makes this a visually difficult shot.
Hole #16 Par 4
Finally, another downwind par 4 that you can birdie. Slope in front of green makes it difficult to run a shot to the hole It is easy to overshoot this green and get into major trouble. Green is relatively small compared to other greens on this course. Make sure to read putt from all angles.
Hole #17 Par 3
Beautiful par 3. Sheltered tee box may lure you into thinking the wind won’t affect your shot. A south wind can easily take your tee shot to the lake on the left. Make sure to use plenty of club on this tee shot.
Hole #18 Par 5
This is a hole where you can “grip it and rip it.” No bail out here. Be sure your second shot is past the cottonwood on the left side of the fairway. Third shot usually plays longer than you might expect so hit plenty of club. Very exciting and a pretty finishing hole.
