Hole 1
The first hole is straight away, and a fair start.  A good tee shot should leave a short iron into a green that is relatively subtle in design.  An approach shot that is hit well to the right, will find the water.

Hole 2
A well hit tee shot should favor the right center of the fairway.  This leaves players a mid iron second shot, and the best angle to attack this deep, rolling green that is protected by a bunker to the left.

Hole 3
The first par 5 on the course, players must position their tee shots between the tree line on the right, and the out of bounds on the left.  Once successfully executed, the second shot opens up slightly to a large sloping green, which can provide a variety of hole locations.  Players will have a chance to make a birdie on this hole.

Hole 4
This par 3, which is guarded by bunkers, and out of bounds well left, usually requires a mid iron.  Trajectory is a factor, because the trees protecting the hole can block the wind.  The green, which is surrounded by mounds, can challenge the players in club selection, especially if the hole is located in the back left.

Hole 5
This uphill dogleg left par 4, is the hardest far four on the front nine. The hole demands a well struck tee shot to have any chance of seeing the putting surface on the second shot. The second shot is played to a green that has a top level and primarily slopes from back to front from there.

Hole 6
This is an excellent short far four. The tee shot must favor the left side of the fairway, so to avoid the creek that cross cuts in front of, and down the right side of the fairway. The second shot is played into a green that rolls and tilts to the right. If the second shot is lost to the right of the green, it very well may find the same creek that players had to navigate from the tee.

Hole 7
This short hole is guarded on the left of the fairway, by a lateral water hazard, and to the right by some trees. The green has a bunker in the front right, and primarily slopes from left to right. Players may notice that the back of the seventh green is actually connected to the back of the first green.

Hole 8
The shortest of the par 3 holes, the eighth green is protected by a bunker on the right, and water to the left. Club selection is paramount, due to the three tiers built into the putting surface. The two beautiful Mountain Laurel windmills are a predominant feature on this hole.

Arguably, this is the most demanding tee shot on the course. The narrow fairway is surrounded by water, and accuracy is far more important than power. Once in the fairway, players face an uphill second shot, as well as an uphill third to a blind hole location. The approach shot becomes difficult since players are unable to see the bottom of the flagstick, and the green is again three to four clubs deep. Par is a good score here.

Hole 10
A stunning vista from the tee, the tenth hole is deceptively difficult. This hole again requires a precise tee shot between the tree lines. Players may choose a fairway wood, hybrid, or long iron off of the tee in order to improve accuracy. This leaves an approach is into a large, three tiered green, which is completely surrounded by water.

Hole 11
This short par four doglegs to the left. A tee shot played to the left center of the fairway will leave players with the best angle to approach the green. The green is much larger that it appears from the fairway, and its left side is hidden from sight by a large mound in the front.

Hole 12
Club selection is very important on this par three. The twelfth has a very deep green from front to back, and can easily play three or four clubs different, depending upon the hole location, and the wind. Players will gladly take par here and move on.

Hole 13
Players must avoid the large lake on the right of the landing area, while being cautious of the tree line on the left. The second shot is to an elevated green that extends from the front left to the back right. If players can keep the ball in play, this is a good opportunity to make a birdie.

Hole 14
Control off of the tee on this dogleg par four is needed so that players do not hit through the right side of the fairway, nor hook into the woods on the left. Once navigated, the tee shot leaves a relatively short iron into a fairly flat putting surface.

Hole 15
A downhill par four that is surrounded by trees. The fairway slopes from left to right, and that must be taken into consideration on the tee shot. Players must trust the yardage on the downhill second shot, which is deceptive in length. The green, which is secluded by a plateau in front of the tree line, slopes from back to front.

Hole 16
This uphill par five requires a well controlled tee shot, played to the right of a large tree situated to the left of the fairway. The second shots must stay between the trees in order for players to have a reasonable chance for par. The fairway slopes from right to left the entire length of the hole and players should be cautious not to miss the green to the left on their approach shots.

Hole 17
An aggressive tee shot down the right side of this dogleg right will shorten the approach to this difficult par four. The second shot will be played with a mid to short iron to another very challenging putting surface. Par is always a good score on this hole.

Hole 18
The final hole is a very difficult par three. Trouble surrounds this hole. The green is protected in the front right by a large bunker, and in the front left by a smaller bunker. A tee shot hit further to the right will most definitely find the trees. If players negotiate the tee shot, they are then faced with a very large putting green that can make two putting an uncertainty.
