Straight away par 5 opening hole that plays between a corridor of Florida Slash Pine and Royal Palms. Right away you notice how far off the fairway the houses are situated which gives the course a parkland feeling. The green is crowned and causes shots to roll off the left and right edges, therefore an approach angle from the left center of the fairway is best.

Position off the tee is more important than distance. The fairway is terraced and the goal of many golfers is to get their tee shot to the top terrace. The green is raised and small, only 25 paces deep, and shots that go left or long leave a treacherous lob shot recovery to save par.

A lake down the entire right side will dominate your planning for all three shots on this hole. Players must first carry the water or stay left with the tee shot, then stay left conservatively or aggressively on the second shot, and finish with an approach to a green which slopes to the water. There’s no room for a slice. Stay Dry.

The shortest par four on the course closes down visually with old growth stands of pine and cypress on both sides. Hit your straightest club off the tee and avoid the urge to draw the ball as the predominant double bogie is caused by a tee shot in the left trees. The green is the narrow and has severe back to front slope, so downhill putts get rather slippery.

A pretty little par 3 that yields the most holes-in-one each year at the club. The green is fairly large and round and faces the tee making it very receptive to a good iron shot. The shot is over a pond to a green guarded on both sides by bunkers but all of these hazards should just be considered eye candy for a well directed shot.

This is the longest par 4 on the front nine. The tee shot focal point is a fairway bunker on the left side. Avoid this bunker, get a little length on your drive and you’ll have a nice look at a long and fairly narrow green that slopes to the right. Putts break more on this green than people expect.

A great par 3 because the green has many challenging pin positions that make it play differently each time. The clover shaped green is protected by five deep bunkers that tempt the shot maker to bend the ball flight in order to get closer to the hole.

Par 4

256

A classic around-the–lake par 4 that will challenge the long hitter to fly the entire lake and the strategic golfer to stay right of the lake on both the tee shot and on the approach. The design perfection of the hole is that long hitters are looking at a set of reachable bunkers in the distance, and the strategic player avoiding the lake on the second shot must avoid a short right bunker and grassy depression area that will leave them with a difficult up and down.

Par 4

253

Each golfer faces a lake for 200 yards on the right that doesn’t have to be carried but dominate the view and mindset. Many water avoidance swings find the pines and palmettos on the left, but center drives have a relatively short approach to a right to left sloping green. This green has some subtle, hard to read breaks that have fooled some very good putters.

Par 4
 
371
 
335

306

This dogleg right par 4 is guarded by trees on the right. The tee shot needs to be played to the left side of the fairway for the best approach angle. The green is relatively narrow and is guarded by two bunkers on the right. The green slopes from back to front, get close to the pin or risk a three putt.

Par 5
 
342

The hardest rated hole on the back side is a test of shot making and patience. The tee shot must carry a creek and then a meandering lake. Most players aim their tee shot at the green irrigation boxes in the left rough. The lake pinches in on the right side of the fairway three times making the left side of the fairway the safest place to be. The lake, along with a bulkheaded bunker and trees frame a green that doesn’t have a level spot on it. Par is a well earned score.

A comfortable birdie opportunity. This short par four will do your ego good as long as you pay attention to getting your drive in play and your approach avoids the bunkers on each side. Also pay attention to your downhill putt so you don’t turn your birdie chance into a bogie.

A left turning par 5 rewards a draw off the tee. Long hitters might reach the green in two while most are pleased to arrive in three. The key is to plan for a second shot that leaves you with the easiest approach shot. A good target is 90 -100 yards from the green just in front of where the pond pinches in on the fairway. The green is two tiered and protected by a bulkhead, try your best to get on the correct tier with the flagstick.

This is a shot maker’s hole. The tee shot should be faded to cut around the trees and avoid the gaping bunker on the left. High launched drives can be hit over the stand of trees on the right for the daring. Club selection is critical for the second shot to this long green that rejects many shots by running them down a slope off the left side. Front to back pin positions can result in a change of three clubs in respect to distance. Skillful shots will be rewarded with a par.

The hardest par three on the course, this hole requires a middle iron to hybrid to an elevated green. Bogie is almost certain for an errant shot right or left of the green. A deep trap on the left and grassy mounds on the right will test the short game of every golfer who misses the green.

The good tee shot is essential to playing this dogleg right par 4. A huge bunker at the corner should be carried only by the longest hitters and avoided by all others. Watch out though, the turning fairway allows a drive that looks long down the middle to roll into tree and palmetto trouble on the left. The green is fairly wide and receptive if you can get by the grass and sand bunker on the front right.

Par 3

This par three has the largest green on the course, so you may get a 90 foot putt. The tee has five different locations so proper club selection for the yardage is a must. The green is well bunkered but if you pick the correct club and make a good swing and you’ll think the hole is easy.

A terrific par 4 finishing hole where many matches have been won or lost. The landing area for the tee shot is elevated and tilted to the left. The difficult decision for the mid handicapper is whether to go for the green over the creek and large bunker or safely lay up. You can get a birdie with a good second shot or suffer the double bogie blues with a shot in the creek. By the way, diners in the clubhouse have a great view of the choice you make.

A long tough opening hole rated as one of the toughest in SW Florida. The drive plays uphill and you’ll wish you got more roll when you see how long your second shot is. The second shot is over a creek with a pond on the left and a stand of pines on the short right side of the green. It would be wise for many players not to try and reach this green in two and instead choose a club that they can confidently place in the center of the fairway 50-75 yards from the green. If you make par on this hole, pat yourself on the back.

Welcome to your second straight par 4 with water as the dominant factor to avoid on both the tee shot and approach. The goal on the tee shot is to get to the top of the hill for a good view and manageable distance to this wide elevated green. Don’t let the lake, the bulkhead wall and a left side bunker tighten your swing. Trust your distance and give yourself a birdie putt.

A picturesque par 3 over water to a peanut shaped green. Front and back bunkers catch all on-line shots that lack the correct distance. The tournament pin position of back right adds length and brings more water and green slope into play while the front left pin position yields the most aces each year on the Creek course.

Par 4

The shortest par 4 on the course yields some birdies but also its share of triple bogies.
The reason is a green surrounded on three sides by water and a bunker as the only other out. Your tee shot just needs 180 – 200 yards of length and avoidance of the lone left fairway bunker. Seems easy, doesn’t it? Good luck.

One of Arthur Hill’s best and most beautiful par 5 designs. A meandering lake shoreline comes into play three times and drowns all shots that stray left. Long hitters need to keep their drives to the right half of the fairway to avoid the lake as it bottlenecks 240 yards from the tee. Position planning is key to playing your second and third shots and a wise player won’t risk playing too close to the lake’s edge. But getting to the green isn’t all there is to this hole, severe slopes on the back half of this green make for some unexpected breaking putts.

Air it Out! Thankfully there are no water hazards on this hole. The contour of the hole favors a draw off the tee, but an old growth cypress tree forest running the entire left side will snare a hook. A large green helps accept the long irons and woods that are used in the attempt to reach this green in two.

Visually this par four seems to suggest a fade on the tee shot, but any well hit shot that avoids the fairway bunker on the left is in excellent position to access the green. The lake on the left will grab only hooks and mishit shots to the left. The green is narrow on the front because of a huge, well placed bunker, but is wider on the back half.

The longest par three on the course can play as long as 215 yards from the back. The view from the tee is a picture of a blue lake, a bunker, and a large green with three stately Queen palms standing in the background. There’s more room behind the bunker on the right than it appears.

Rated as the hardest hole on the course, this is a hole you’ll either love or hate. All players must carry the creek twice on their trek to the green and how you accomplish this and with what club selections changes with the length of your tee shot. Two long bunkers also add spice to the hole. One is on the left side of the fairway snaring drives and the other starts 60 yards short right of the green. Stay dry and sand free and you’ll have a nice approach to a green that hides its hole location. Cherish the challenge!

A great test for your driver to start the back nine, a dogleg left around trees with a corner bunker. A draw cuts off length and some big hitters try to launch it over the trees. Long and straight can go through the fairway and OB however. There is room right of the trap for the safe shot, but the second is over 180 yards from there. The green slopes from left to right and many approaches slide off the right edge.

This hole design shows up on every great golf course. A straight drive then a middle to long iron across a lake to a wide green. The green has a swail in the middle which makes putting rather tricky. Take your four or five on this hole, smile and move on.

A relatively short par 5 that is truly a position hole. Water is in play down the entire left side and its embankment pinches into the fairway the further you play off the tee and again in front of the green. Find the fairway with a safe club off the tee and lay up to 100 yards from the green in the widest part of the fairway. The green has some nice rises and falls on it, so keep your ball under the hole.

A beautiful par three that is framed behind the green with a landscape bank of vibrant purple bougainvillea. The most often aced par 3 on the course, it plays much easier with the flag up front. A deep flag position brings the right bunkers, the left pond, and a back edge downslope into play.

Par 4

The first of two consecutive dogleg right par 4’s. The smart player here doesn’t fall for the right side temptation which brings a long fairway bunker and trees into play. On your approach shot keep your ball in the center of the green or it will catch the run off slopes to the right and left edges.

Par 4

A tough, but fair par 4 design. While the fairway turns right 160 yards from the green, the ideal drive goes down the middle or favors the left side to avoid the trees on the corner. The green is diagonally defended by bunkers front right and back left. Tricky and subtle breaks make putting this green challenging.

Par 3

Just one bunker guards the front right of this huge green. The hole can play 130-195 yards, but most of the fun is on the green. A center spine on the back half of the green funnels balls both left and right and the front half of the green slants sharply to the tee and has some of the most severe breaking putts on the course.

Par 5
 
527

Slightly longer than the par 5 twelfth hole, the design seems similar, but the water on the left is thirty yards farther off the tee. Smart strategy states if you can’t get there in two, play three confident, conservative shots with your favorite clubs. The putting surface is long from front to back and has a swale in the middle. Read your putts from two angles.

Par 4

A wonderful finishing hole par 4 hole. The tee shot is slightly uphill and must get far enough to enable you to get your second shot over the creek. This green is protected by the busiest bunker on the course in front and another on the right. Oh, and there are four Sable Palm trees right in the middle of the fairway, 280 yards out, to contend with. Finish this hole without a penalty, make the putt and tell a good story in the Greenside Grille.
