Individual Hole Analysis
Best Par 3: From the tees on the left this hole features an intimidating tee shot over the water while the tee boxes on the right allows the player to hit a runner between the bunkers to the putting surface.
Best Par 4: This dogleg left allows you to cut the corner and really put it close to the green, however anything that is too far left will be a lost ball.
Best Par 5: The tee shot here features a large drop down to the fairway and continues to play downhill a three-leaf clover green surrounded by large pines.
Birdie Time: The 321 yard uphill finishing hole is driveable and thus offers a great chance at birdie if you can avoid the four bunkers that protect this hole.
Bogey Beware: At 466 yards, the 4th hole is easily the longest par four on the course and features a fairly narrow landing area of the tee. You'll be thrilled with a four here.
Final Cut: Grade C+
