On this par five, accuracy is required on every shot. The drive should favor the right side of the fairway. The second shot must avoid the fairway bunkers. Long hitters can carry the left bunker, setting up the ideal approach to the green. Green is somewhat elevated and small, so your approach shot must be accurate.
A long par 3 that plays across the arroyo into a long, skinny green with a sharp drop off into the arroyo along the left side. If you are going to miss, miss it right!
A wonderful dogleg left that will really test your shot-making skills. Off of the tee you must work the ball right to left, while at the same time avoiding the arroyo protecting the left side of the fairway. The second shot requires a left to right shot over the arroyo into a green that is guarded by a tree on the risght. A beautiful hole lined with Pepper trees, best keep it in the fairway!
A difficult uphill hole with two forced carries and dogleg left. The tee shot is played over the arroyo uphill to a fairway protected by a stream on the left and a large hillside on the right. The player must favor the treacherous left side of the fairway to be rewarded with a shorter second shot over the stream that dissects the hole and protects the right side of the green. "The Green Witch" will be the hole everyone talks about. Be conservative, you may make par!.
This drivable par 4 could set up an opportunity for an eagle. Be careful of getting too brave, accuracy is key as the arroyo will catch any balls hit to the left and a large bunker protects the right side of the green. A spectacular short hole!
Don't let the 100-foot drop from tee to green get you thinking this hole will be a breeze. With the winds swirling through the valley, club selection could range from a 3 wood to a 7 iron. At the bottom of this dramatic cliff awaits a green with a bunker that keeps any offline shots to the right from falling down to the creek.
A naturally beautiful, but challenging dogleg right, par 4, which runs along the bank of the arroyo to the right. Take the risk of playing a tee shot down the right side of the fairway and set up a downhill shot into this long, skinny green protected by a natural cliff and the arroyo short and along the right side. Players who decide to take the safe route down the left side of the fairway will have to deal with a longer shot into a shallow green with the arroyo catching any shots that go long.
This long, uphill, par 4 will test endurance, and strength at the end of the round. A nice wide fairway awaits a well-struck drive. Right is the safe side all along the hole. Avoid left at all times. The uphill second shot is played with a long iron or fairway wood. The green is the largest on the course and is open in the front, inviting a run up second shot.
The closing dogleg left hole is a gambling finishing hole. Don't let the length scare you off of this hole as it plays downhill off of the tee dropping 170 feet from the "Big Jake." The gambling tee shot played left of the fairway bunkers takes the short cut and sets up a good opportunity for reaching the green in two. A drive to the wider fairway, right of the bunkers is the safe route, but makes the hole a "three shots" to reach the green.
