We share our secrets!
HOLE 1: Great opening hole. Favour the left side of the fairway at the 100 yd mark to open up the green for your approach shot. Good birdie hole to start your round.
HOLE 2: You must carry the ball the full distance to the flag on this hole. The prevailing wind is usually toward you from the left. Difficult green to read. Par is a good score on this hole.
HOLE 3: A good tee shot will leave the player just short of the road. This brings the bunker on the left into play. Careful! There is water left and right of the fairway over the road. Your approach shot must carry water in front of the green. From a short tee shot, lay up to 90 yards to save par or bogey at worst.
HOLE 4: Time to let it rip. A good tee shot may still leave a mid to long iron in, depending on the wind. The tall pin allows you to see the green position but play 1 club short as it will run slightly downhill onto the green. Great Scottish style hole.
HOLE 5: A shot landing at the front left side of the green has a great chance of kicking on to the green. The rest rooms are located past the green on your right.
HOLE 6: Please listen for the bell before teeing off. A tee shot to the top of the hill between the tall tree on the left and the grove on the right is perfect. The second shot is the most important. Favour the left side of this hole to have a clear shot at the green and a chance at an Eagle. Three safe shots could get you a Birdie!
HOLE 7: Good straight away Par 5, reachable in two but beware of the water on the right side of the green. Lay up to the 100 yard mark to be safe. Please be careful not to hit into the group in front.
HOLE 8: A tee shot to the top of the hill will leave you 125 yards to the green. There is water on the left side of the green. Play for the middle of the green to be safe.
HOLE 9: Aim your tee shot at the rock and play to land it at the 100 yard marker at the corner. A high second shot landing the front part of the green could spell birdie!
HOLE 10: Good straight away Par 4 with a good chance for birdie with a straight tee shot. Most second shots kick left in front of the green. The green usually holds the ball well.
HOLE 11: Toughest hole on the course. Par is a good score here. Play for the right centre of the fairway, partway up the hill in order to see the pin on your second shot. This will leave you 125 yards to the centre of the green. A well guarded green with water on the right and bunkers on the left will require a very good second shot to find. Play short of the green on your approach to be safe.
HOLE 12: Position is the key to this tee shot. The water hazard is 225 yards from the hole sign posted at the tee box. This may require a lay-up shot to be safe. Please “listen for the bell” before teeing off.
HOLE 13: A straight tee shot is a must on this hole. The rock on the left, just past the corner is a 150 yard marker. A left centre tee shot is preferred. Play for the centre of the green and avoid the bunkers front right and left of the green. The Snack Bar and Restrooms are located after this hole and Hole 16.
HOLE 14: This hole plays one club short but plan to fly the green. A high shot, landing the green will bite. Landing your shot short, left may work also but beware of the bunker in front of the green!
HOLE 15: This dog leg left is short but tricky. The tee shot target is the 100 yd marker. A safe shot can be played to the 150 yard mark and let the ball run to the bottom of the valley. The fairway slopes to the right. Please watch for players at the corner before teeing off.
HOLE 16: This is the Signature Hole of the back 9. You must avoid the left side of this green. Play for the right side as the green slopes right to left. Take a moment to enjoy the view of Eagle Valley to the East from this tee. You return to the “Snack Bar and Restrooms” after this hole.
HOLE 17: Great risk-reward hole. The big hitters can drive through the valley but the safe way to play this hole is to lay up to the 225 yard mark off the tee. Play for the top of the hill with your second shot. The fairway and green slope to the right. Play for a bounce and roll from left to right.
HOLE 18: A tee shot landing at the 150 yard mark is great on this hole. A long tee shot left to right is risky on this finishing hole but can leave you with a short shot over the water to set up a birdie.
