Hole 10


Your choice: to stay short of the right bunker with a long carry over water or get all the way past its corner towards the bunker on the left. This will avoid the large oak tree that sits beside the fairway bunker on the right which is begging to block your shot.

Hole 11


Strategy is the theme here. Your tee shot is down hill and must avoid the rock creek as the fairway cuts away to the right. A shot in the fairway here can yield a try for the green in two. Good Luck!

Hole 14


This is one of the most difficult and beautiful par 5’s you will play anywhere. Your tee shot needs to finish close to the rock wall in order to have a clear shot to the landing area. From there you will need a precise approach to a green that is guarded by a creek in front.
