A generous start to this William Bell design. Clearing the hill with your drive will give you a generous roll out and a short iron into the green.
Staying on the left side of the fairway will help you avoid the fairway bunker and out of bounds on the left.
The first par 5 gives a the longer hitters an opportunity to go for the green in two. Avoid the fairway bunkers and this will set you up for success.
Go For Broke
Narrow par 4 where hitting the fairway off the tee is important.
Short par 4 will give longer hitters a short wedge into this green. Do not go over as this green slopes severely from back to front.
Ace of Spades
Second par 5 of the front nine. The smart play is to lay up on your 2nd shot as the green is surrounded by bunkers and out of bounds.
This hole plays longer than the scorecard reads. Be sure to take an extra club and aim for the middle of the green.
Over the Edge
It's important to play down the left side of this slight dog leg right. Avoid the bunker on the right off the tee.
Be wary of the wind on this par 3 and use an extra club!
Similar hole to #1, clearing the hill will give you a generous roll out and a short iron into the green.
Avoiding the fairway bunker on the left will give you an opportunity with a wedge in your hand to score.
Challenging short par 3. The left side of the green is the ideal landing spot to avoid bunkers, water, and out of bounds on the right.
This is a tight par 5. The conservative play would be to aim short of the bunker on the left, and then lay up on your 2nd shot which will give you a short wedge to the green
This is the start of a challenging stretch of holes to finish the back 9. A strong drive down the left hand side is optimal.
This is a long par 3 where hitting the green is important. Use an extra club to avoid the bunkers short.
Playing down the left side will help you avoid the trees on the right. A drive into the right trees will likely leave you a punch out into the fairway.
Let it Rip
There is more room left on this hole than you think. Playing down the left side will help you avoid the encroaching rough and give you a flat lie for your approach to the green.
Don't get lost in the views of the mountains as this long par 4 is demanding. A strong drive down the left side will give you the best angle into the green.
