Holes 1 and 10

The first hole is a par five (5) and plays 517 yards for the men’s front nine and 527 yards for the back nine. For the ladies and juniors, it plays 457, on both the front and back. The drive over the water has to take into consideration water all the way down the right hand side as well as a fairway bunker some 250 yards to the left of the fairway. The fairway narrows at the 225-yard marker with an inlet coming in from the right hand pond. The approach to the green is guarded by a green-side bunker on the left and water on the right.

Holes 2 and 11

A green side bunker guards the right side of the green. An errant drive to the left brings in a row of junipers that can impede your chip to the green. The green is sloped from front to back.

Holes 4 and 13

Hole number four (4) runs along the main highway (2) into Three Forks. Drives severely to the left are immediately out-of-bounds. Drives harshly to the right will encounter higher grass and a tough second shot. A pond to the right starts at about the 300-yard mark and runs much of the fairway to the green. On approach, the green is guarded by green-side bunkers on both sides.

Holes 5 and 14

The fifth hole challenges and tempts the longer hitter. The hole plays 369 and 424 yards for the men and 344 for the ladies and juniors, but a drive over the pond or parts of the pond can seriously reduce the length of the hole. A drive over the pond can encounter waste bunkers. A greenside bunker on the right hand side guards a green sloped relatively severely from back to front.

Holes 7 and 16

Holes 8 and 17

The eighth hole is a short par four of 272 and 299 yards for the men and 235 yards for the ladies and juniors. All drives except for those aimed severely right are over water. Drives too far left towards the green will encounter a fairway bunker some 30 yards from the front of the green. Drives from the back tee are guarded by high cottonwoods, and all drives aimed directly towards the green are protected by Russian olive trees.

Holes 9 and 18

The 9th or home hole is 317 and 337 yards for the men and 287 yards for the ladies and juniors. Willow trees some 100 yards out, compel golfers to drive the ball to the right of this dogleg left hole – and to the right is an out-of-bounds. There is a fairway bunker to the left of the fairway leaving a 75 to 100 yard bunker shot to a green sloped from back to front. Green side bunkers guard both sides of the green..
