Safe golfers will play this hole by hitting their drive down the left side of the fairway to set up for a nice approach shot on this dogleg right hole. Those trying to take a shortcut will be punished by a thick grove of trees lining the right side of the fairway.
This is a straightforward hole with no surprises except for the bunker surrounding the right-front edge of the green. Tough pin placements can make this hole more difficult than it seems.
This par 4 is very rewarding – if you are able to hit it straight. Trees line both sides of the fairway with thick prairie grass included on the right side to make your second shot a bit more challenging if you miss the fairway.
Just like the first hole, this one also will punish anyone trying to take a shortcut on this slight dogleg right. Tall, mature trees will test your skills if you find yourself looking for an opening on your second shot. Stay left in the fairway to setup an easy approach shot!
Tucked back in a small grove of trees, this hole can be easily birdied if you are fortunate enough to be on the green in two shots. Hitting over the green will most likely result in a lost ball as the tree line approaches quickly with tall grass making your search nearly impossible.
One of the tougher holes on the front nine, this hole provides several forms of entertainment. First off, a fairway bunker comes into play on the right side during your first shot.

In an attempt to allow golfers a chance to relieve their frustrations from the previous hole, this long par 5 does just that – gives the player several chances to swing all out. Staying to the right side of the fairway will allow a clear approach shot to the green, avoiding a tall tree that protects the front-left side of the green.
At first glance, one may not realize the two bunkers that encompass this green on each side. To make matters worse, there is no such thing as a straight putt. Be prepared to read the green in order to save par.
With a blind shot from the tee, it is better to know ahead of time that staying to the right side of the fairway will be beneficial for your approach shot. This is a slight dogleg left with a bunker wrapping around the left side of the green.
