The starting hole is a very forgiving par four with two fairway bunkers just out of reach for most players. This hole provides a very wide fairway and friendly green with two pot bunkers in the rear. A nice four on the card is not a bad way to start out.

This is a great long par four with a downhill tee shot and a slightly uphill second shot. There is a swale down the left side of the fairway and a deep bunker that dominates the right front of the green. A drive down the left side sets you up for approach to the left side of the green. Par is a very good score here.

This beautiful par three plays across a valley with four bunkers fronting the green. Picking the right club is key. Don’t get greedy here; the back of the green is very good.

This dogleg par five is reachable in two by the very longest hitters. Avoid the fairway bunker on the right of the tee and play your second down the left to leave a short third to an elevated green protected by two pot bunkers left and two pot bunkers on the right front. A nice wedge could lead to a birdie.

A great short par four. A risk reward tee shot, with the hole turning left along a lake and a fairway bunker on the right. There are four ways to play the hole; going directly for the green 280 yards away; all over water, hitting 260 yards to the right of the lake and just past the fairway bunker, playing 220 yards short of the fairway bunker, or playing 195 yards to the widest part of the fairway. The shorter your drive, the tougher the second shot as this is a narrow green with four bunkers in the rear. This is a great short hole.

This is a longer par three with water on the left and a very large bunker on the right. Watch out for the wind as it tends to drift your ball toward the water. Three is an excellent score on this hole.

This hole is a straight away par four with a deep swale in front and up the right side of the fairway. There are two fairway bunkers; one shorter on the right and one longer up the left make for an interesting tee shot. The approach is to an elevated green bunkered on the right front. It is best to avoid the swale on the right of the tee as there is nothing but bogeys and doubles down there. To finish this hole; hedge to the left side of the green on your approach, giving you a putt for birdie.

This long par five is a true three shot hole. Aim your tee shot up the left side to avoid the bunker on the right. Keep your second shot up the right side to open up the green for your third. Be very careful to pick the right club for a third shot to a green bunkered left front and left rear. Being able to write a five on your card here is very good.

Guarding the front of this par three is a lake. The tee shot should be up the left center of the fairway, avoiding a bunker on the right and the left. The second shot should be played to the back of the green to avoid the water in front and the bunker on the left.

Wow!!! The view on this hole could make you look up on your backswing! You can’t have more fun than hitting off this high tee to a fairway that is way down there. Avoid the bunker on the left of the fairway and the two bunkers further down on the right. Hit over the bunker on the left if it is not windy for a short shot to the green. Play out to the right if the wind is at you. The approach shot should be aimed left to avoid the deep canyon and two bunkers on the right. What a hole!

A dogleg left par five that plays across a deep valley and a fairway bunker at the corner. A nice draw up the left side is perfect. The second shot is downhill with a deep swale and wetland on the left. Avoid the fairway bunker short of the green for a nice short third to a green bunkered left and rear. A nice wedge may lead to a birdie.

460 yards makes for a big par four. The tee shot should be played up the left center to avoid a bunker on the right. Fortunately, the bunker on the left is way out there and only the longest hitters should worry about it. There are three wetlands up the right side in the swale. The green is bunkered right front with a nice wide approach area to run your long second up and onto the green. Par here is excellent!

This par four is slightly uphill with a good tee shot flying the bunker on the left and stopping just short of the bunker on the right. The approach needs to play to the left part of the green to avoid the large bunker to the right. There are no pars to be found short and right of this green.

This is a beautiful downhill par three with a bunker on the left that is the deepest on the course and should be avoided if possible. Extra food and water are recommended if you venture here. Hit to the right front of this large green to avoid the bunker on the rear. Par is a very good score here!

A deep swale on the left should be avoided at all costs on this par four. Play your tee shot up the right center to allow the fairway contour to bring it back to the middle. Play your approach to the left part of the green that has a very large bunker on the right. Just off the back right of the green is a huge Douglas fir; one of the biggest in the valley.

A 450 yard par four that is the toughest on the course. This is a straight away hole, with a swale up the right side of the fairway. It is best to drive up the right side to set up your long second to an elevated green guarded by a very deep bunker on the left; aim right! Bogey here might win the hole.

A dogleg left par five, a good tee shot up the middle will present you with a second shot down the hill to a green guarded closely on the left by water, and a bunker on the right front. A nice wedge here could lead to a finishing birdie!
