course, but what it lacks it distance it makes up for in strategical play.

fairways, and water hazards. The course offers the opportunity for those
golfers willing to take on the challenge of driving the green from a few holes,
but it is a risk/reward option.

par fours on the course of 367 yards or less, and the 4 par threes average
about 170 yards in length. The three par fives will typically take three shots
to reach the green, and the one remaining par four is the longest of the par
fours, measuring at 419 from the tips.

directions. New trees have been planted in recent years and are scattered
throughout the course. The condition of the fairways, bunkers and greens have
all experienced the same type of improvements rendered to the clubhouse area.
