4th Hole

7th Hole

8th Hole

9th Hole

Hole 9 | Par 3
Black 194 yds | Blue 171 yds | White 139 yds | Red 114 yds

 

The downhill 9th hole drops in elevation about 50 feet from the Black tee and about 35 feet from the Red tee to the green. The approach slope to the green is steep and will direct a short shot back into Railwood Creek.

 

Handicap 15

 

Take Dead Aim and Don't Think About the Trouble !

10th Hole

Hole 10 | Par 5
Black 522 yds | Blue 505 yds | White 460 yds | Red 401 yds

 

The best tee shot favors the right side of the fairway. Railwood Creek comes into play for the long left drive. A good drive offers the opportunity to go for the green on the second shot. A layup should also be played to the right side of the fairway for the best approach.

 

Handicap 2

 

Enjoy your Round !

 

11th Hole

Hole 11 | Par 3
Black 203 yds | Blue 183 yds | White 145 yds | Red 110 yds

 

This downhill Par 3 requires good direction and distance control. A well stuck approach shot will offer an easy birdie putt on this relatively flat green. Bailing out to the left leaves a difficult, but dry pitch or chip for those afraid of water.

 

Handicap 16

 

Positive Thinking Requires the Use of a New Ball !

 

12th Hole

Hole 12 | Par 4
Black 361 yds | Blue 343 yds | White 303 yds | Red 267 yds

 

This sharp dogleg left will find out how greedy you are. The percentage play is to the right of the large tree in the fairway. Many will try to cut the corner and shorten this already short hole, but be forewarned. Approach shots are very challenging to the elevated green from almost any direction.

 

Handicap 10

 

If You Can Control Your Draw, This is Your Hole !

13th Hole

Hole 13 | Par 4
Black 369 yds | Blue 355 yds | White 311 yds | Red 253 yds

 

Pay attention on this short dogleg left. The great view can be distracting. The only good drive here is a straight one in the fairway. Likewise, the green is large and will receive your shot well, but if you miss the green left or right, you will have an adventure on your next shot.

 

Handicap 12

 

Keep Your Head Down and Pay Attention to Business !

14th Hole

Hole 14 | Par 3
Black 187 yds | Blue 175 yds | White 140 yds | Red 126 yds

 

How can we politely say this? Don't be short. Don't be long. Don't veer more than a little to the right. This Par 3 will not seem like the highest handicap hole on the golf course unless you knock your tee shot on the green and forego all the adventures that await the rest of us.

 

Handicap 18

 

Swing the Clubhead Through the Ball !

15th Hole

Hole 15 | Par 4
Black 388 yds | Blue 372 yds | White 324 yds | Red 283 yds

 

Hole is wider than it appears, and balls will come off the hill on the right most of the time. If you can go left mark your trail so your playing partners can find you after five minutes. Your second shot will be uphill and a little blind to a green that is as deep as it is wide.

 

Handicap 8

 

You Can Speak to a Cut Shot, But a Hook Will Not Listen !

Hole 18 | Par 4
Black 401 yds | Blue 378 yds | White 337 yds | Red 286 yds

 

The tee shot on this dogleg right hole plays downhill about 70 feet to the fairway. From the landing area, the green sits about 30 feet lower. If ever there was a position hold off the tee, this is the one. The second shot generally plays a little longer than it appears.

 

Handicap 6

 

Another Confidence Building New Ball Hole !
