Let's Play A Round!
The first hole ...is a 352-yard, par-4 with out of bounds left and right that demands accuracy. Try to put your tee shot around the 150 yard marker. From there it's a short iron into a smaller green with not much trouble around it. But the green has a few undulations, so accuracy is important. Simply put, it's a nice warm-up hole!
The toughest hole awaits you at #3.This hole will make you appreciate the friendly warm-up on number one! This is the number one handicap hole on the course. It's a par-5 playing 540 yards. The tee shot is a dogleg right with out of bounds right and many trees left. If you navigate the dogleg correctly, you're left with 260 yards into an elevated green that slopes severely from front to back.
Our best par-5 is #14, part of Shotmaker's Mile. It's 490 yards with a 90 degree dogleg about 220 yards from the tee. A player can choose to carry the dogleg over large trees that line the fairway or play safely. A shot left, right or long will find heavy woods. The approach is to an elevated green that is two-tiered and protected by trees.
The most difficult green is 14 ...
That rhymes, and it might be the only fun you have with this green! The 14th green is extremely elevated from the fairway. Shots short, left and right will fall sharply down the hill. Trees surround the left, right and back of the green penalizing errant shots even more. Finally, the green is split by a large five-foot tier that separates the front and back of the green. Ouch!
#15: Our signature hole. It's a par-4, 267yds (blue tee), 228yds (white tee) The green is obviously reachable, but the only bail-out is left. Players may choose to set up the hole with an iron across the hazard to the lay up area and then a wedge to the green. The bold play from the tee is at the water surrounded green and a putt for eagle.
#16: the best par-3 ...is a slight downhill with water protecting three sides of the green: front, left and over. The tee shot is played from a heavily-treed area to an exposed narrow green. Club selection is critical.
Number 17 is a tough par-4 as it plays 414 yards with out of bounds down the right. Oak Terrace Resort's village homes sit to the right. Seventeen is a slight dogleg right with two large oak trees on each side of the fairway that frame a "field goal" opportunity. A good tee shot will leave a play about 150-170 yards into a very large green with creative bunkering around it.
Finally, number 18 is a 400-yard, par-4 with many evergreens down both sides. If you don't hit the fairway you'll most likely be punching out of the trees and struggling to make par. The green is surrounded by two bunkers and large mounds that enclose the green. The mounds make for some very awkward chip shots around the green.
