GOLF COURSE TIPS
Length, slope and rating for each tee
The Front 9 Golf Holes
- #1 – A short par 4. Shoot for the middle of the fairway and avoid the trees on the right side and you’ll have a nice look at the green on your second shot.
- #2 – The first of 2 tough par 3’s on the front. Going long could put you behind some trees.
- #3 – A par 5 that is possible for the big hitters to reach in 2. A decent drive down the middle will put most golfers in position to reach the green in 3.
- # 4– A tight window for your drive on this long par 4 makes it the 3rd hardest hole on the course. The green is well protected on 3 sides.
- # 5 – This hole features a short par 4 that is a dogleg right. Send your drive about 175 yards and you should be looking directly at the green for your approach shot.
- # 6 – A slight dogleg right, this hole is all carry after your drive. Do not go long when approaching the green or you’ll find yourself further away then you imagined.
- # 7 – The next par 5 that is reachable in 2 for long hitters. Everyone else pay attention to the pond that comes into play on your second shot.
- # 8 – Par 3 that is protected by a sloping hill in the front. The green can be tricky depending on where you land your ball.
- # 9 – While it is possible for the longest of hitters to go over the trees on this short par 4, the easy play is to hit your drive straight which will leave you 130 – 150 to the hole.
The Back 9 Golf Holes
- # 10 – Long par 4 straight up the hill. 2nd hardest hold on the course according to the handicap.
- #11 – A short par 3 down the hill that gives you a nice chance for birdie.
- #12 – Par 5 with a very slight dogleg left. Big hitters can reach in two. Pay attention to the very large green and put your approach shot close.
- #13 – Par 3 up that goes up the hill. Shoot for the center of the green but don’t go long.
- #14 – Straight away par 4 with lots of woods that follow the hole up the right side.
- #15 – Back up the hill for a long challenging par 4 that is a slight dogleg right. This green also has some challenging areas.
- #16 – Top of the hill drive location on this dogleg right par 5 featuring a large green that can keep you far from the hole.
- #17 – Short par 4 that is the first of two ‘birdie holes’ on your way in. A straight decent drive will put you in a good position.
- #18 – Aim for the rental condos that reside behind the largest green on the golf course. Get close to the pin to avoid a 2 putt or more..
