Hole 1 – Par 4 – Black 422 – Blue 395 – White 385 – Yellow 343 – Red 330
The first shot of the day will set the tone for the round. Playing 422 yards from the back this par 4 dog legs to the left and directly into the prevailing wind. With a large pond and bunkers protecting the left side of the fairway, be careful not to cut too much off the corner. If the wind is blowing it could add a club or two to your approach to this large green protected by two bunkers front left.
Hole 2 – Par 4 – Black 380 – Blue 365 – White 335 – Yellow 322 – Red 310
Playing right into the prevailing wind this short straight away par 4 plays longer than the yardage on the card. This green calls for a right to left approach shot. The green is deep with a centre ridge and is protected by a bunker on the left that would spell disaster to a left pin position.
Hole 3 – Par 3 – Black 180 – Blue 172 – White 162 – Yellow 140 – Red 126
This mid-length par 3 is protected by trees and plays to its yardage. Don’t be fooled as the bunkers are placed well in front of this green with a large collection area waiting to attract anyone distracted by the beauty of the hole.
Hole 4 – Par 5 – Black 602 – Blue 550 – White 507 – Yellow 468 – Red 456
Playing over 600 yards from the back, this par 5 can be a devil in disguise. A narrow fairway and strategic bunkering will have you checking the wind direction twice. Playing with the wind you can try for the green in two, but if the wind changes you can be left with a long approach into a fair sized green which is protected on the right with water and bunkers.
Hole 5 – Par 4 – Black 405 – Blue 375 – White 360 – Yellow 326 – Red 298
Playing back into the wind with the prevailing wind coming from the right, a shot down the right side of the fairway of this 405 yard par 4 will keep you out of trouble and leave you with an easier approach to this large but protected green. Don’t be surprised to find out you have more left for your approach than you thought as the fairway bunkers are deceiving. A right-to-left approach is ideal for this well contoured green but be careful of the collection area to the left as well as off the front right.
Hole 6 – Par 5 – Black 488 – Blue 480 – White 462 – Yellow 450 – Red 410
Playing with the prevailing wind, this 488 yard par 5 can be reachable in two. Long hitters beware, the fairway narrows after a generous landing area and is guarded with bunkers on the right and left. The ideal tee shot is played to the left of the bunker on the right to a down slope that will add more roll to your drive. Don’t try to cut the corner over the bunker. A left to right approach that runs up to the green is ideal, but this large mostly flat green does have a backstop that will help hold your shorter approach.
Hole 7 – Par 4 – Black 465 – Blue 415 – White 400 – Yellow 385 – Red 325
A tee shot down the left hand side of this 465 yard par 4 is best in order to avoid the large bunker to the right on the approach. Hitting into the bunkers on the left would be catastrophic, however. The elevated green is pushed out onto a peninsula in the pond, is protected on the right by a bunker and almost demands a shot that runs up to this gently sloping green.
Hole 8 – Par 3 – Black 166 – Blue 160 – White 155 – Yellow 120 – Red 115
This shorter par 3 plays long at 166 yards over a naturalized fish habitat to a deep green that is well protected on the left by a large pond. Don’t be fooled by the size of this green. If the pin is anywhere on the right of the green you should bet on using one more club. A ridge down the centre of this green divides it in two leaving a long putt from front to back.
Hole 9 – Par 4 – Black 424 – Blue 400 – White 365 – Yellow 355 – Red 316
An elevated tee on this 424 yard par 4 gives you a great opportunity for one of the easiest tee shots of the day. A long bunker guards the left side of the fairway from the pond that runs down the entire left side of the hole. Keep your tee shot down the right side of the fairway to take the water and bunker out of play. Your approach to this slightly raised green must be accurate. Use the slope of the green and a right to left shot if the pin is on the left of this wide green, but be sure to avoid the bunker in front.
Hole 10 – Par 4 – Black 427 – Blue 370 – White 360 – Yellow 351 – Red 305
This 427 yard par 4 dogs slightly to the left. The fairway is protected by a bunker on the right and out of bounds left. Stay to the middle of the fairway off the tee and you’ll have a straight approach to the green which is protected by bunkers on either side for a narrow approach. The green slopes to the front and to the right.
Hole 11 – Par 5 – Black 495 – Blue 485 – White 455 – Yellow 445 – Red 405
Play your tee shot to the right side of the fairway on this 496 yard par 5 but avoid the right side bunker. The green is reachable in two with a strong drive, but avoid the greenside bunkers. Don’t be too long on the approach as the green slopes to the front.
Hole 12 – Par 4 – Black 385 – Blue 365 – White 335 – Yellow 320 – Red 278
Playing 395 yards from the back this par 4 is mostly protected by the winds so tee your ball high. Be sure to avoid the fairway bunkers on the left. The smallish green requires precision.
Hole 13 – Par 3 – Black 223 – Blue 210 – White 170 – Yellow 150 – Red 122
The 223 yard par 3 plays slightly downhill. The green is protected by bunkers left and right and slopes left to right commanding a right to left approach.
Hole 14 – Par 4 – Black 398 – Blue 380 – White 345 – Yellow 330 – Red 300
This shorter par 4 presents a good birdie opportunity. Shorter hitters will prefer the left side of the fairway while longer hitters can carry the fairway bunker right. A left to right approach is best as the green slopes to the left away from the bunker right.
Hole 15 – Par 4 – Black 445 – Blue 405 – White 365 – Yellow 349 – Red 320
A classic risk/reward 445 yard par 4 dog leg right will tempt you to cut the corner. However, a large bunker on the right will give you second thoughts. Longer hitters can carry the bunker leaving a short approach while, a more conservative drive down the middle will leave you facing a 160 yard second shot to the green.
Hole 16 – Par 3 – Black 170 – Blue 165 – White 142 – Yellow 125 – Red 118
The signature hole is a 170 yard par 3 over water to an extra wide green. The green is nestled among a horseshoe of maples and flanked on the right by a large pond. The green is ridged with a significant slope to the right. Pin placement will certainly determine your target.
Hole 17 – Par 4 – Black 435 – Blue 425 – White 395 – Yellow 345 – Red 332
This 435 yard par 4 dog legs to the left. A right to left tee shot will shorten your approach, but don’t be too tempted or you will find the trees left. The approach to the small green should be a left to right shot to avoid the bunker front right.
Hole 18 – Par 5 – Black 555 – Blue 515 – White 500 – Yellow 460 – Red 436
The 555 yard par 5 closing hole has a large landing area for a well placed tee shot. Long hitters check your distance to the water on the left and watch out for the right side bunkers. The fairway narrows significantly so place your second shot well. The slightly elevated green is well undulated and well protected with deep bunkers on the right.
