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.

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+
