#1A For all levels of players, the secret to success on this starting hole will be to keep the shot to the left side of the fairway. A more open approach is presented to the green avoiding the deep ravine along the entire right side.
#2A Higher handicop golfers should probably aim more toward the right side of the green regrdless of pin plocement This will result in a shorter carry over water and will leave ample “bail-out” room on the right Lower handicap players who want to go for the flag should consider the low bowl in the front-center of the green and its effect on the roll of the ball once it lands on the putting surface.
#3A A good tee shot here for the stronger would be the long fade to hold the right edge of the fairway. This will result in a shorter, more level shot to the green that should hold on the putting surface better. For most playes, keeping the drive to the left will leave a more open angle between the greenside bunkers.
#4A Since this is a potentially reachable par 5, the best plan of attack should be determined on the tee shot. The shot that could reach the green of he is able to place his drive in the upper, left fairway. Don’t be deceived on the tee-there is more room in the left fairway than it seems, beyond the bunker. The hillside beyond the bunker will usually funnel the ball into the fairway.
#5A For all players, the right side of the fairway will offer a more inviting entrance to the green, bot with a word of caution. If the drive is played too far right, the hollowes and mounds could result in a difficult lie in the rough. The best play here would be to aim the drive slightly left of center of the fairway leaving enough room for the fade to work to the right edge.
#6A The key to successfully negotiating the sixth hole will lie in accurate placement of the tee shot. Like the previous hole, playing more to the right side of the fairway will provide for a much safer shot to the green. A level area near the lake on the right will give the golfer a short approach with the angle of play away from the water. From the tee, the left side will look inviting but will leave very little room for errer on the secound shot.
#7A Since the green is set at an angle to the tees, the hole willp play 1 clud longer if the pin is on the left side. If the flag is on the right side, the safer shot would be much better to be short than long. A short shot will only require a pitch and run up to the hole while one hit too long will leave a bunker shot to a green that slopes away.
#8A The key to low scoring on #8 will be the correct placement of the second shot. Two low swales crossing the fairway in front of the green will need to be avoided or visibility of the putting surface for the approach shot will be reduced. If the tee shot has been hit well, the player should go for the high ground between the swales. The shorter player would do well to stay short of the first swale giving a little longer shot but from a better position.
#9A A big tee shot will be an advantage here, especially one up the right side. This will result in a better view of the green as well as a more open shot with less of an uphill climb. The green is deep so with the elevation change, use an extra club to reach the back pin positions.
#1B For the low handicap players, go for the lower fairway on the right but, try to keep the ball close to the bunkers. From this point, the view into the green will be better and the lie in the fairway will favor a high fade down to the green. Higher handicappers who play to the “safer” left fairway should definitely stay farleft. There is on trouble on the left. while a drive into the middle bunkers will create a difficult shot to the green.
#2B Those, who don’t hit a long tee shot should aim at the series of mounds on the left to avoid having to carry all but a small part of the lake. The second shot should also be directed well left to keep away from the two large mangos hanging over the right side of the fairway. Stronger players should also avoid the temptation of cut off some distance by playing to the right. A drive aimed near the fairway bunker on the left will leave an open, downhill shot to the green. With any good drive in the fairway, one should go for the green on the second shot since the penalty for missing is not severe.
#3B Most of the real trouble on this hole occurs on the right near the green. for all glfers, a drive on the right half of the fairway will make the second shot more playable. From that point, one can play his approach away from the lake, bunker and low fairway that lie on the right. A mound on the front-left side of the green could probide on opportunity to play safely and still work the ball off the slope toward the hole.
#4B For the longer hitter carrying the fairway bunker on ther left will leave a short, uphill shot to the green. A shot played too for left will resulf in having to play over a cluster of large mangos so the hest strategy is to aim near the center of the fairway and drow the ball to the left. For most players, keeping the ball to the right side will make the hole somewhat longer but the opproach to the green will be more open and more visible.
#5B Because of a slight front-to back slope in the green, the golfer’s choice here will be to either play a high shot that can be stopped quickly or take advantage of the open front of the green. The contouring on the right will allow a low, running shot to work toward the flag while reducing the risk of vershooting the green or hitting into the bunkers.
#6B A well hit tee shot will leave the golfer with a 150 – 160 meter approach to the green – all over the water. For the more advanced player, holding the tee shot to the right side of the fairway will leave a shot directly over the lake to the flag. Higher handicap golfers may wish to reduce the risk of hitting into the water by aiming left toward the fairway pad in front of the green. This will leave an open pitch toward the hole with the possibility of a par score with a good up-and-down play.
#7B With an open landing ared of large size as a target, a longer tee shot here will leave the player with a short shot into the green with better visibility of the putting surface. Positioning the tee shot on the right side of the fairway will open the entire green. but will add some distance to the hole. A drive that carries the fairway bunker on the left will shorten the hole but will bring a large greenside bunker more into play.
#9B For all but a few golfers, this will be a hole that requires 3 shots to reach the green. The secret here is to play the first 2 shot to the best position for the narrow approach to a green well guarded by rock outcrops both left and right. Playing the second shot well to the left of the high hill in front of the green will leave an open avenue between the rocks.
#1C The drive should be placed down the right side of the fairway to provide the widest opening to the green. Second shots can be played strongly to clear the front bunker since there are no hazards behind the green. if one overshoots the green.
#2C Players who think about going for the green on their second shot should play their tee shot as close to the creek as possible to give a shorter and more open attempt. For those playing the hole for 3 shots to the green, there is plenty of area on the right to keep away from the water on the drive. Likewise, there is plenty of room to the left to avoid water on the second shat. Care should be taken not to play too for left on the second shot or the approach to the green will be toward the lake.
#3C Big hitters should keep the drive close to the fairway bunker on the right to shorten the second shot and open the approach. For those who hit a shorter tee shot, aim left to avoid the bunker and lake. This may be a good hole to lay up short of the creek on the second shot unless the drive is long or the player can hit a reliable long iron or fairway wood.
#4C For the better player, a tee shot to the lower fairway level offers a shorter shot with a better angle to approach the green. The shorter player will want to keep toward the upper fairway, away form the water. The second shot may be best if played short into the swale in fornt of the green and allowed to run up to the flag.
#5C Most of the problem here is on the right side, so the shorter player should bring the shot in from the left to right there is plenty of open area behind the green for the long shot, so use enough club to clear the big front bunkers.
#6C Hole the tee shot to the open left side for the best angle to the green on the second. Carry the tree at the bottom of the hill and the mounding will feen the ball toward the hole. A short drive could make the best strategy to play thesecond shot to the bottom of the hill short of the tree and bunkers.
#7C The strategy here is to play the shot as close to the right side of the fairway as possible, shortening the approach to the green while providing a better angle. Favor the right side on the second shot to avoid the two deep bunkers on the left.
#8C With all of the hazards being on the right side, the average player would be safer to shoot for the left edge of the green and fade the ball toward the hole slightly. For shots that do not fade, mounds, hollows will help contain the ball leaving a short pitch to the green.
#9C This fairway encourages a strong tee shot up the hill since there are no hazards to restrict restrict direction. Placing the shot to the left side opens up the green between the front and back bunkers. there is plenty of space behind the right side of the green to allow for the shot that goes along.
