Par: 3
Handicap: 13
Description:
Par 3, 181 yards. Slightly downhill par 3, players must take enough club to carry the creek crossing 20 yards in front of the green.  A deep pot bunker troubles players short left and a long bunker covers the right side of this 2-tiered green, which slopes severely back to front.

Distance: 320 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 11
Description:
Par 4, 348 yards. From an elevated tee, players will hit to an uphill fairway, attempting to split two fairway bunkers. Placement of your second shot is key as you play uphill, to a large, 2-tiered green.  There are two green-side bunkers left and one to the right of the green.

Tee:
White
Distance: 377 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 361 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 361 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 3
Description:
Par 4, 388 yards. This severe dog-leg left par 4, requires a long and accurate tee shot around tall trees to have to opportunity to hit the green in regulation. Be cautious of your distance off the tee as the fairway runs out beyond 250 yards and will bring out of bounds in play. Your second shot must be very precise. Surrounded by bunkers, the left side of the green falls straight down and will make for a difficult par save. The right side of the green is no easy task as well.

A deep bunker and tree right of the green will cause you trouble too. This green on #5 is sloped back to front.

HOLE 6
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 371 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 371 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 365 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 340 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 9
Description:
Par 4/5, 371/531 yards.  This elevated tee looks out to a fairway which has a severe slope from the left rough down the center of the fairway. Positioning your ball onto a flat lie is key, as you will be hitting your second shot to an extremely uphill green about 35 feet in elevation. Depending on the wind and flag position, this large green can require a 3-club difference for your second shot as a par 4.

Playing this hole as a par 5, your second shot will wind to the right of the par-4 green, to another green elevated about 25 feet. This par 5 can be reached in 2 shots if you position your tee shot down the right side of the fairway.

Tee:

Tee:
White

Tee:
Red
Distance: 538 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 380 Yards
Par: 5
Handicap: 1
Description:
Par 5/4, 555/398 yards. The Candlewood Tree hole. As a par 5, our signature hole requires three, nearly perfect shots that will need to maneuver around our famous Candlewood Tree placed directly in the middle of the fairway, about 100 yards from the green.

As a par 5, this hole is a double dog-leg, right then left. Your tee shot needs to either be shaped left to right off the tee to cut the corner, or play it only 220 yards to keep it in the fairway as it slopes away from the tee. Placement of your second shot is crucial if you want to reach this par 5 in regulation. If you cut the corner off the tee and are thinking of reaching in 2 shots, be aware of the lake positioned out of sight, short left of the green. As a par 4, your tee shot will be uphill to the Candlewood Tree, then dog-leg slightly left.Par is a good score on this signature hole.

Tee:
White

Tee:
Red
Distance: 124 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 112 Yards
Par: 3
Handicap: 17
Description:
Par 3, 170 yards. Elevated tee, players will hit over a large lake to a narrow, 2-tiered, severely sloped green.

Bailout is short left, but a well judged tee shot will give the players an opportunity for a short birdie putt since this green is only 15 paces wide. Two bunkers protect this green to the right and long.

HOLE 9
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 324 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 304 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 287 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 250 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 15
Description:
Par 4, 324 yards. Players will tee off from a narrow corner of the course to a short, uphill tee shot. Some players hit their tee shot only 200 yards to take the fairway bunkers out of play. From this position, you will be hitting a mid to short iron blindly into the green.

More aggressive players hit driver and move it left to right to get on top of the hill with a great look at the green with a wedge or short iron. Arriving to this treacherous green, make sure you are putting from below the hole as this green slopes severely back to front, and right to left.

HOLE 10
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 145 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 135 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 134 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 134 Yards
Par: 3
Handicap: 18
Description:
Par 3, 145 yards. A slight break! This average length par 3 is nestled among beautiful tall palm trees in the background.

This being one of our flattest greens on the golf course, but is well protected by a bunker directly in front and left of the green.  Players must also avoid going long or to the right as the lateral hazard may come into play.

11
HOLE 11
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 557 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 529 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 522 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 432 Yards
Par: 5
Handicap: 2
Description:
Par 5, 557 yards. Straight away, bombs away! The longest hole on the golf course requires three good shots to hit the green in regulation. Avoid hitting the ball right, as the creek runs along the entire right side of the hole as a lateral hazard.

When approaching the green, your shot can play ½ club to 1 whole club uphill, and the green slopes from the back left to the front right. The front left bunker will be a tough up and down, as the green is sloping away from you. Like our only other par 5, par is a good score here.

12
HOLE 12
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 391 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 381 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 378 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 378 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 6
Description:
Par 4, 391 yards. This tee shot requires everything you have, through a narrow chute, to an uphill fairway and an elevated green. Avoid the fairway bunker on the left, and calculate your second shot to the green that is about 35 feet above you.

The green is our deepest green at 32 paces, and has 3 tiers. Above the hole on the incorrect level, downhill putts will be a very difficult 2-putt.

13
HOLE 13
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 206 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 189 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 185 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 150 Yards
Par: 3
Handicap: 14
Description:
Par 3, 206 yards. Distance control is the primary factor on this long par 3. Playing downhill, players will have to judge the distance just right as balls hit short will most likely not run up onto the green, and shots that hit the green with not enough trajectory will run off the back.

This hole is tree-lined on both sides and two bunkers protect the right and left side of the green.

HOLE 14
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 384 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 371 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 355 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 334 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 8
Description:
Par 4, 384 yards. This straight away par 4 seems narrower off the tee than it really is. A moderately generous fairway plays level from tee to green, with the left side line with trees and the creek on the right.  Keep your drive between the fairway bunker on the right and the trees on the left, and you will have a mid-iron to a two-tiered green.

If the pin position is on the back shelf, distance control is key as a long shot over the green will be a difficult up and down. Bunkers guard this green right and left.

15
HOLE 15
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 398 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 381 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 363 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 363 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 4
Description:
Par 4, 398 yards. From an elevated tee, players will favor the right side of the fairway that slopes right to left to avoid the lateral hazard that runs along the left side of this hole.

Players will then hit their second shot to a generous green, avoiding bunkers short left and long right.

16
HOLE 16
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 379 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 369 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 363 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 363 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 10
Description:
Par 4, 379 yards. Similar to #15, players will favor the right side, avoiding the creek and a tall eucalyptus tree, left-center of the fairway. However, do not go too far right since there is a corner where trees will block out your second shot, and you will be forced to lay out.

Your shot into the green must be on target, as this hole narrows as you get closer to the green, bringing the creek closer up the left side and the dense trees along the right. Bunkers on the left and right can actually be a fortunate break preventing the ball from going in the hazard or out of bounds.

17
HOLE 17
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 328 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 328 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 319 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 319 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 12
Description:
Par 4, 328 yards. Going in the opposite direction of #16, this par 4 with the creek on the left starts bringing you back to the clubhouse. Many choices off the tee, players must decide whether to play it safe with a long iron or challenge this narrow hole with driver for a chance with a short iron or wedge into the green.

If you do hit it left off the tee, a long, narrow bunker may help you and hold your shot from going into the creek. Hole #17 is one of our flattest greens with some subtle undulations. Birdie is a good possibility on this hole

18
HOLE 18
Tee:
Blue
Distance: 283 Yards
Tee:
White
Distance: 273 Yards
Tee:
Red
Distance: 269 Yards
Tee:
Family
Distance: 269 Yards
Par: 4
Handicap: 16
Description:
Par 4, 283 yards. This is a classic risk-reward hole. This short par 4 plays uphill, but is reachable for the long hitters. Deciding to go for the green will depend on the hole location. This green is by far the most difficult green on the golf course, as it is 2-tiered and severely slopes from back to front. When the pin is in the front, long hitters are more inclined to lay back since they want to avoid a short, awkward pitch with very little green to work with.

When laying back, players will need to favor the right side of the fairway as it slopes from right to left, in order to avoid the fairway bunker on the left side. Bunkers protect the left, right, and back of this green. Birdie is definitely the target score here, ending your round on a good note!
