Hole 7, The Country Club Course

The trade winds and contours of this inviting par four provide an opportunity for you to give it all you got off the tee.

Hole 9, The Country Club Course

The generous fairway may be more difficult to find than it appears thanks to the left to right trade winds and slopes. Be sure to stay clear of the fairway bunkers on the left as the fairway opens to any type of second shot you wish to play. The closer you are to the well-bunkered green for the thirdshot, the better off you will be.

Hole 12, The Country Club Course

One of the longest par 4s on the course, where even the best drive aimed down the right hand side of the fairway will leave an intimidating and deceptive long approach to the green. Beware of the fault front on the green as balls that land here will likely return to the fairway.

Hole 13, The Country Club Course

The ideal drive will leave the ball right center of the fairway giving you an open approach shot to the green.

Hole 14, The Country Club Course

A classic three shot par 5. A strategically placed drive just right center of the fairway is required to avoid the hidden slopes on the left side. The second shot leaves a choice of attaching the green from the right hand side of the fairway or playing short of lake, resulting in a straightforward approach to a narrow sloping green.
