The 10th hole plays longer then the yardage would indicate as it is severely uphill from tee to green. This dogleg right is among the toughest holes on the course. The tee shot on this hole if fairly open and easy, however the second shot is very demanding. Miss the green right or long you'll be lucky to leave with a bogey 5. There is also long grass and tree that protect the left side. So the best strategy on your second shot here is just to put it anywhere on the green and go from there.

Hole 11 is the shortest hole on the golf course, but it still has pleanty of bite. The green is postage stamp size, and if you miss this green left you very well may be pitching back up the hill from 10 green. The only bail out spot here is right or short right of the green. A few hole-in-ones here have been made off a lucky bounce from the hill right of the green.

The panoramic scene from the 12th tee rivals anything around. It's so beautiful that a gentleman once proposed marriage to his lady right on the 12th tee. As for the hole, it plays much shorter then the yardage would indicate. An ideal tee shot is right at the large bushy pine right of the green. From there, approach shots will usually feed toward the center of this saddle shaped green. After a couple putts head accross the parking lot to 13 tee.

The slope of the 13th fairway will feed most balls that land in the left rough back into the fairway. The hole is tree lined, but there's a lot of room between the trees making this hole forgiving to arrant shots. The green is deceptively sloped from back to front and putts to a front pin position tend to be faster then they appear.

The tee at the 14th was moved back and up onto the hill a few years ago and instantly made this the most challenging tee shot on the course. Out of bounds and trees line the left side of the hole and a creek running up the right will quickly add strokes to your score. An ideal tee shot is up the right hand side with a little draw. The green is a two tiered green with protecting bunkers on the left and front right.

The creek running up the right side of number 15 makes this a risk / reward hole. The safe path is to play left about 180 yards toward the tall pine trees and approach the green from there. Longer hitters can try to drive this green as it plays about 270 yards to the green from the tee. The green is protected in front by a bunker that sits about 10 or 15 yards from the putting surface. This green is filled with subtle undulations that make it a very difficult green to read.

This is the longest par 3 on the golf course and certainly the toughest. Trees up the right and creek on the left can catch wayward tee shots. Bunkers on the front right and back left and a number of large mounds around the green make pitching to this green difficult. After all of that, probably the toughest part of this hole is the wind as this is another area of the course where it tends to swirl. Many times I've seen the flags on 13 green and 16 green blow directly at one another.

The first of two finishing par 5's is a dogleg left. The tee shot is blind, but a good line is right over the apple tree sitting halfway up the hill. A ball hit about 200 to 230 yards hit on that line will find the fairway. After that, it's a straight shot in to a fairly small green. Out-of-bounds lines the left side of this hole and a local rule makes over the creek right on-course out-of-bounds as well. The small and exposed green tends to get very hard and is probably the least receptive

_wsb_830x380_18tee

The finishing hole is another risk/reward hole. This short par 5 can be made even shorter by hitting further right, however the further right you go the more your bring the creek, the on course out-of-bounds on 17 and the wild grasses across the creek into play. Most times it's best to play the safe shot off the tee to the middle of the fairway as long hitters can still reach the green in two from there. The green is large and receptive.
