An inspiring tee shot starts from an elevated tee to a slight dogleg left with the ideal tee shot position being in the middle to left side of the fairway avoiding the two traps that hug the left side and rough.
This is perhaps the most demanding driving hole on the golf course with a 225-yard carry over the bunkers and a winding creek that turns and parallels the fairway.
A sharp dogleg left requires a long tee shot in the right center of the fairway.
This picturesque short par-4 features a rolling fairway leading to the heavily bunkered, elevated green. The absence of level lies makes for difficult second shots.
This par-5 doglegs slightly to the left. It is the longest and one of the toughest holes on the course.
Although this is a short par-3, shifting winds cause problems with club selections. A creek on the left side of the green will penalize hooked tee shots, and out of bounds is close behind the green.
A blind tee shot to the crest of a hill reveals a narrow, beautifully situated green bunkered front and left.
No. 8 is a very demanding par-3 with some tough pin placements. Long-irons or possibly a 3-wood will be used here, but it is better to be short than over the embankment at the back and into the creek.
A dogleg right with a two fairway bunkers guarding the corner requires a well-positioned tee shot.
Trouble on the right of this dogleg right will require a tee shot to the left side of the fairway.

The last good birdie opportunity on the course will provide plenty of excitement. A big drive on the slight dogleg left hole will leave an opportunity to reach the green in two, but not without risk.
A great and picturesque par-3 that has length, six bunkers and out-of-bounds on the left.
A dogleg left with a bunker guarding the corner requires a well-positioned drive to a very narrow landing area.
The last par-5 on the course requires both length and accuracy off the tee.
The course's shortest par-4, this dogleg right is a real teaser. A pushed tee shot into the trees (and a creek) will mean real trouble.
