Hole #1Par

Red

Men 
HCP 15
Women  
HCP 11

The shortest of the Par 4 holes.  Plays slightly uphill to a relatively flat green. Often plays directly into the prevailing south wind.  Favor the left side of the fairway.  A chance for a good start.
Hole #2 Par

Gold
 194
White
176
Red

Men  
HCP 5
Women
 HCP 17

Not the hole you want to have to play second.  Entire carry over water with left the only bail-out.  Even from there, though, an up and down is tough.   If you walk away with par, you usually pick up at least one on the field.

Hole #3 Par

Gold
 401
 White
 385
Red
 284
 
Men
 HCP 11 
Women 
HCP 5

This hole bends gently left with a green that sits at an angle to the fairway.  Green opens up better from the right side of the fairway.  Look over your putt carefully.  Probably more downhill or breaking than you realize.

Hole #4 Par

Gold
 401
White
 374
Red

Men
 HCP 3
Women
  HCP 13
 
90* dogleg left with a blind tee shot.  Come as close to the corner as you wish, but OB is on the left and fairway traps wait for you straight through the fairway.   Green slopes severely from back to front with a good amount of slope from right to left.  Another approach that must be below the hole.

Hole #5Par

Gold
450
White

Red
349  
Men
 HCP 9
 
Women
 HCP 1

Longest par 4 from the Gold.  Avoid right on your drive to stay away from the Pine trees.  Partially blind 2nd shot usually plays into the wind.  Relatively small green, guarded by grass mounds.  The "long time players" tell you to play one less club on your appoach due to the downhill fronting the green.
 
Hole #6 Par
  5 
Gold
 485
White
471
Red
401
Men
HCP 13   
Women
 HCP 7

Even the short hitters have a chance to reach this green in 2 due to its downhill and with the wind approach. Well guarded by bunkers, for those that want to fly it on.  A big green for a par 5, but it sits at an angle to your approach.  Generous slope from back to front, but a realistic chance for a birdie.

Hole #7 Par
    4   
Gold
 395
 
White

Red
 343
Men
 HCP 1
Women
HCP 9

Trouble lurks everywhere on this hole.  Play it safe and it doglegs left, leaving you a longer club in.  Trying to "cut the corner" brings  into play OB , Pine trees, the no-mow, and the pond.  Large green that slopes severely from back to front.  As many big #'s are made on this hole as any on the course.

Hole #8 Par
Gold
160
White
 129
Red
 119
Men
HCP 17 
Women
HCP 15

Pick the right club, as this hole usually plays into the wind.  Green is a generous size, but a lot of different slopes await you once you are on.  A miss short or left of this green still gives you a chance for par.

Hole #9 Par
 4 
Gold
 448
White
435
Red
 348
Men
 HCP 7
Women
 HCP 3

The longest of the par 4's from the white tees.  Usually plays downwind, so this helps some. Very flat green sits there with nothing protectiving it.  But, with the approach club you are hitting, it is tough to make the ball stay on this green.  A good "press" hole to end the front nine.

Hole #10 Par
 Gold
 363
White
 348
Red
 289
Men
 HCP 4  
Women
HCP 12
                                    
Drive usually laid up short of the river.  Too far back, however, leaves an uphill,  medium iron to an extremely sloped  green.  Once you are on this green, your work is just starting.  Small driving area and severely sloping green makes this our 2nd toughest on the back nine.
Hole #11Par
 4 
Gold
381
White
 370 
Red

Men
 HCP 6
Women
HCP 10

A semi short par 4 with the smallest green on the course.  Elevated a lot which makes for a tough up and down. The fairly flat green does give you a birdie chance here, if you can hit the green.
Hole #12 Par

Gold
 508

Red

  Men
 HCP 12
Women
 HCP 2

Highway 27 on your left and the river to cross on you second shot.  After that, usually a short iron into this extremely sloping back to front green.  A chance for birdie if you keep your approach under the hole.
Hole #13Par

 HCP 18

Slightly downhill, with a medium or short iron to a narrow target.  A two level green can make for a fun experience on this green.  Bail out is to the right.

Hole #14 Par

 HCP 4

Longest hole on the course, but does not usually play that difficult, as you can see by its handicap rating.  Doglegs slightly to the right and a little downhill.  Grass mounds protect this very large green.  Par is often made with a good chance for birdie awaiting.

Hole #15Par

HCP 14
                         
Longest par 3 from the Gold.  Down hill, but often plays into the wind.  This large green is well protected with grass bunkers, sand traps, Pine trees and the no-mow.  Once again, you will find more slope to judge than first meets your eye.

Hole #16 Par

White 354 Red

 HCP 6

The long hitters can clear the creek, leaving them just a short iron.  Most have to lay up, leading to a longer iron or hybrid.  The green is a generous size, but there are may differing slopes on and around this green.  Tough to make par for most.

Hole #17 Par
 4
Gold
 366
White
 344
Red
 268
Men
 HCP 14
Women
 HCP 8

Slightly downhill and usually downwind.  Keep it short or left of the pond, but avoid the no-mow on the left. On your 2nd shot, you must hit enough club to clear the creek, but the slope on this green calls for you to keep your approach below the hole.

Hole #18 Par
Gold
 194
White
 160 
Red
120
Men
 HCP 8 
Women
 HCP 16

Unusual to end with a par 3, but it makes for some interesting finishes.  Creek runs along the left, the river hazard is to the right.  A hole where distance control is very crucial.  A lot of bets won or lost on this hole.
