Course Description

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Hole 1

Back Tee: 388 yard Par 4                Forward Tee: 388 yard Par 4

The starting hole is a medium length Par 4 that generally plays longer than its yardage due to the fact it plays into the prevailing West winds. Players should avoid the deep rough on the right side of the fairway.

Hole#1

Hole 2

Back Tee: 225 yard Par 3                Forward Tee: 214 yard Par 4

This long Par 3 is the most difficult hole on the course and possibly one of the most difficult in the province.  Like the first hole it plays into the prevailing west winds and is guarded by a lateral hazard on the left and out of bounds on the right.

Hole 3

Back Tee: 468 yard Par 5                Forward Tee: 397 yard Par 5

Number 3 is a very reachable Par 5 for long hitters that can carry the corner.  An accurate approach is necessary to hit the uphill green that is guarded by trees on the left and out of bounds on the right.

Hole 4

Back Tee: 109 yard Par 3                Forward Tee: 109 yard Par 3

This short Par 3 is the most picturesque on the course. The elevation change makes this hole play shorter than its yardage. The large green is guarded by bunkers on the right and a water hazard that is short left.

Hole 5

Back Tee: 258 yard Par 4                Forward Tee: 258 yard Par 4

This driveable Par 4 is all about risk and reward. Players wanting to go for the green need to be aware of the thick rough on the left and the extremely steep lateral hazard all down the right side of the fairway. An iron off this tee is never a bad play.

Hole 6

Back Tee: 160 yard Par 3                Forward Tee: 160 yard Par 3

Number 6 is a medium length Par 3 that requires an accurate tee shot to a three tiered green guarded by trees all around the green and a bunker that is short and right. If the pin is located on the back tier par is a good score on this hole.

Hole#6

Hole 7

Back Tee: 368 yard Par 4                Forward Tee: 292 yard Par 4

The seventh hole is a medium length Par 4 that is guarded by trees running the entire length of the fairway on the left and the Birdtail River on the right. An accurate tee shot is necessary to hit the long narrow green.

Hole 8

Back Tee: 292 yard Par 4                Forward Tee: 254 yard Par 4

Hole number 8 is another risk-reward hole. Long hitters can reach the green but need to be wary of the trees to the left of the green and the creak that runs across the fairway short of the green.

Hole 9

Back Tee: 371 yard Par 4                Forward Tee: 339 yard Par 4

The finishing hole is a straight away Par 4 that generally plays down wind to a large receptive green. Players should favor the left side of the fairway to avoid the trees that run down the right hand side of the fairway.
