    The Course

    The grounds encompass nearly 75 acres of manicured surroundings boasting classic sight lines, pristine conditions, turf and sand bunkers, rich water features and grand Santa Rosa Mountain views.

    Hole #3

    Don’t be fooled by the narrow tee shot, there is more space in the fairway than meets the eye. At 515 yards, two excellent shots are required to get home in two. Choose to lay up and navigate the bunkers on the approach.

    Hole #7

    Decisions to be made from this tee box, as long hitters have a chance to get there in one. The creek on the left and pond guarding the green will need to be considered.

    Hole #9

    Playing slightly uphill towards the mountains, a good tee shot is needed to setup a shot into this green. As the most difficult hole on the course, #9 requires four great shots to walk away with a par.

    Hole #10

    The tee shot into the split fairway is one to remember. Approaching from the right side is the best angle into the narrow green.

    Hole #14

    Pressed against the mountainside, the tee shot on #14 is less of an issue as the well-placed approach that is needed to attack this green. Guarded by bunkers and a troublesome rock feature, the approach is not to be underestimated.

    Hole #16

    Take in the views as you tee off from the mountain top into the split fairway below. Avoid the creek down the left side and don’t attack a left pin placement as you may end up in the waterfall.

    Hole #18

    At 506 yards, the finishing 18th plays toward the mountains. Forget about getting there in two; three large bunkers guard the front of the green. A par is respectable before heading back to the clubhouse.
