This 72-par course, designed by Pete Dye, offers traditional rolling-links style golf with Scottish and Irish flair, characterized by rolling mounds, manicured fairways and thick rough. Length, strength and finesse are key to scoring well on this course, which has hosted the PGA Club Professional Championship, and the Californian State Open.

Hole-by-Hole

Hole

Par 4

1st HOLE

par 4

A great starting hole – place your tee shot down the left side of the fairway on a line toward the bunkers to avoid the water hazard to the right. Your second shot needs to be the correct yardage because of the small and undulated green. Long is no good on your approach.

2nd HOLE

par 5

This is a fairly short par 5 where you should keep your drive down the left side of the fairway as most tee shots tend to roll to the right. Some players are able to reach this green in two. However, you must avoid the drop off on the left side to allow you to have a less difficult approach.

par 3

The best shot on this hole is at the center of the green. The green is surrounded by bunkers and par is quite difficult if you miss the green. Club selection is imperative because a miss short and long makes for a challenging recovery.

par 5

A straightaway long par 5 – grip it and rip it! And, grip it and rip it again! Not many players can reach this green in two. Your approach should be from the left side of the fairway, which gives you the best angle to come in to the green. The green is fairly deep so make sure you take enough club on your approach.

par 3

A beautiful par 3 with water in front, to the right, and behind the green. If you miss the green, your only bail out is to the left and the up-and-down is extremely difficult. Club selection is very important. The green slopes away from the tee and to the right.

Par 4

12th HOLE

par 4

A short par 4 with water to the left and out-of-bounds to the right. Most players tend to aim too far to the right to avoid the water on the left, which brings out-of-bounds into play. The greenside bunker to the right is a great target off the tee. On the approach shot, there’s a water hazard on the right which comes into play. Don’t be long on your approach.

17th HOLE

par 5

This is a long par 4 which bends around the water hazard to the left. This is the most difficult hole on the course. Your tee shot should be down the right center of the fairway to allow the best approach to the green. There is water from the fairway up to the green on the left side. The two-tiered green is undulated and it is difficult to make a two-putt.

par 4

Straightaway par 4; the best line on your tee shot is to aim at the clubhouse in the background to avoid the water on the right. Your approach shot should stay toward the left side of the green because of the water hazard to the right. A great finishing hole to make a birdie.
