COURSE TOUR - 9 HOLES
Every great golf course has a short risk/reward par four to tempt all golfers. With out of bounds to the left and a tree lined fairway to the right, a well placed drive will leave a short uphill wedge shot to this large green. Laying up to the bottom of the hill will leave you with a second shot anywhere from 120 to 150 yards.
This straight-away par five, with out of bounds left, requires you to lay up to your favourite yardage for your third shot. Selecting the right club and carrying your shot the right distance is paramount as any shot that comes up short will be repelled by the false front that guards the green and will leave you with a very delicate next shot.
This short par three requires you to select the right club and carry the ball all the way to the green. The false front will repel any shot that comes up just short and leave you with a delicate chip/pitch.
A long, straight-away par four, this hole requires accuracy off the tee as a tree lined fairway protects the right side and a water hazard lines the left. Selecting the right club and carrying your next shot is crucial to this uphill green that is quite shallow and sloped from back to front.
This long, straight-away par four requires accuracy and length off the tee to reach the flat part of the fairway. As your second shot is blind, determining where the flag is located is critical as the green slopes significantly from both right to left and front to back.
This short par four requires accuracy off the tee with a slight dogleg to the right and out of bounds to the left. An aggressive tee shot will leave a short second shot to this relatively flat green with bunkers guarding both the right and left side.
A long, narrow, tree-lined par five, this hole requires accuracy and length off the tee as the fairway doglegs from right to left. Laying up to your favourite yardage for your third is critical to this small green that is heavily sloped from back to front. Any third shot left beneath the holes leaves a realistic chance for birdie.
A long par three, this hole requires both accuracy and proper club selection. The front of this green is rather firm and this must be taken into account depending on where the hole is located.
This long, wide, straight-away par five is very similar to the 18th hole at Torrey Pines. A well placed tee shot will tempt you to go for the green, however laying up to 100 yards from the green will give you a better chance at birdie as a pond protects the left side of the fairway just short of the green. Club selection and distance control for your third shot is crucial as the false front of this green will repel any shot that comes up just short.
