A simple but deceptive opening hole, you should choose any club off the tee that gives you the yardage and that you are most effective with. Two large bunkers also guard the left and right side of the green. Birdies are possible, but a missed green leaves a difficult up and down for this hole.
Hole 2 features plenty of room for a driver, yet a drive between 220- 250 yards down the middle of the sloping fairway sets you up for your next shot. Try to land the ball on the right side of the fairway, which gives you access to the front section of a kidney-shaped green. The main defense is the front section that is sloped, but be wary of the left side bunker that stretches the length of this green.
This first par 3 features a large front sand bunker protecting the front of the green. Be careful of the out of bounds that run down the entire left side from tee to green. Players must leave the ball below the hole on this severe sloping green, and this gives you a good chance to make the putt.
This tough first par five is fairly straight with out of bounds down the left side of the fairway. Lay-up your shot and leave yourself with a 100 yards in to the green to give yourself the best chance to hit this green in regulation. Keeping the ball below the hole is a must. If you are above this hole it gives a very tricky shot to any pin placement.
A long par 3, this is not the easiest green on the course. This green is protected by a huge bunker on the right side, and a grass mound guarding the left side. It then slopes back to front, so the strategic play is to keep the ball below the hole.
It might look easy, but a straight drive is recommended on this hole. You will be rewarded if you can keep the ball in the center of the fairway. Be mindful of the side bunker on the left side of the green. A good approach shot to the focal point of the green gives you a look at a birdie from the right side.
Long hitters can reach the green in two shots on this hole. Keep the drive up the right side of the fairway to open up the second shot as the hole moves slightly right to left, and then downhill to a green that is guarded by a bunker on the right side. A putt from the center of the green gives you the best chance for birdie on this hole.
Hole 8 is a fun short hole. Make it worthwhile by keeping the ball on the left center of the fairway. There is an out of bounds area on the left from tee to green. Avoiding the fairway bunker gives you the best chance of birdie on this turtle back green.
The longest par four on the front nine and with an out of bounds on the left side, this hole requires a drive down the right center of the fairway. Center right directs you into this green and takes all three bunkers out of play. The green is tiered, and one is of the biggest greens on the course.
This is one of the shortest par fours on the golf course and it is a drivable hole. There is an out of bounds along the left side from tee to green that takes care of any errant shot. A bunker guards the right side of the fairway to a small push up the green with a right front sand bunker.
This is a short par five with an out of bounds along the entire left side, but missing it right will not hurt you. The second shot sets up the score on this hole, you should have anything from a three wood to mid-iron shot into a tiered large green. Grass mounds on the left and right side are not of much concern, but by keeping the ball below the hole you may just be rewarded with a birdie.
A well-placed tee shot out of the chute of oak trees will bring you into a narrow fairway on this hole. There is a large oak tree that protects the left side of the fairway. Play to the center of a really small green, and watch for the sand bunkers on both sides.
Pull out the "big stick" because this is the longest par five on the course. Your lay-up shot should be down the left side, which sets you up for an ideal approach shot to enormous tiered green. Laying up short will leave you a wedge third shot into a two tiered putting surface.
Hole 10 features a nice dog leg left par four. You must pick a club that clears Ward's Creek (canal), and avoid an out of bounds on the left hand side of the fairway. This green is very narrow at the front, but is shaped like an hour glass towards the back of the green. A bunker runs the length of the green and also on the left side.
This hole features the shortest par 3 on the golf course and sits at the corner of South Foster Drive and College Drive. This hole has out of bounds on the left side and if you hit it long it could end up out of bounds also. A shot to the middle of this green is just right to set up for an easy par.
As a risk-reward hole, this is the other short par 4 on the back side. You must cross Ward's Creek (canal) again, into a landing area that requires a short shot to the green. There are bunkers on both sides of this small green, and can easily another birdie hole.
This hole is a short shot to a very large tiered green. There is a large bunker protecting the front portion of this green and you should avoid the right side bunker ,as well. Pin placements are plentiful and a front and center pin gives you an opportunity to be aggressive. This green allows you a good chance to one putt.
This is the longest and one of the toughest par fours on the golf course. It features a divine tee shot into the fairway which is lined on both sides with large gorgeous oak trees. A well thought out shot to the front portion of the green is ideal here. This hole has a very large green with a sand bunker on the left side. It's a great finishing hole.
