the course

Hole #1

A downhill start where accuracy is a must. Out of Bounds left, and a large grouping of pines all down the right side. The green will hold your shot since it slopes from back to front.   Par 4

Hole #2

Fun par 5 that is reachable in two for the long hitters. Be sure to keep your tee shot just to the right of the large pine on the left. The fairway tends to take drives to the right rough. Green slopes from left to right.

Hole #3

One of our shortest par 3’s. Trust the yardage and you can get one close for birdie. Watch the slope in front and on the right side, it tends to take your ball right off the green.

Hole #4

A slight dogleg to the left par 4. Two fairway bunkers guard the left side. This green is very deep, so pay close attention to the hole placement; or be ready for a very long putt.

Hole #5

This hole is guarded by water in the front, and large mounds that shape the back and sides of the green. Read this green carefully, there are many tricky pin placements here.  Par 3

Hole #6

This hole doglegs slightly to the right as it shapes itself around the lake. The long hitters will want to take their drives over the left side of the lake. If your laying up for your third shot, stay short of the thick rough depression that crosses this fairway. This green is heavily guarded by mounds, so make sure you take enough club to carry the ball all the way.  Par 5

Hole #7

One of our toughest driving holes. Out of Bounds all down the left side, and the lake on the right for the long hitters, presents its challenges. The big mound in the middle of the fairway is a good line, but make sure you can clear it. This green has two very distinctive bumps that you must read carefully in order to walk away from here with a good score.  Par 4

Hole #8

The toughest hole on the golf course. A very sharp dogleg to the right, with a lake that really challenges the tee shot. The long hitter can carry the lake towards the two big pines, but be careful of going too far through the fairway. A straight drive right down the fairway presents the best angle to this very narrow green. The hourglass shape can lead to some very tough pin locations. If the pin is in the front, stay below the hole. Par is a very good score here.  Par 4

Hole #9

Don’t let the yardage fool you. Straight up hill and out of bounds to the left. This elevated green is very small, so accuracy is a must here.  Par 4

Hole #10

The longest par 4 on the golf course that doglegs slightly to the left. The two ponds and the creek off the tee shouldn’t pose a problem, but the large cottonwood trees protect and over-hang the fairway and green. This green slopes from back to the front right, so make sure to stay below the hole.

Hole #11

One of the trickiest short par 4’s you’ll ever play. Position your tee shot towards the left side of the fairway as the big cottonwoods on the right could impede your second shot. This green slopes severely from back to front and you must be below the hole here for a chance at a good score.

Hole #12

A dogleg right par 4 with an elevated green that challenges even the best iron shots. Be sure to get the correct yardage as a shot just a little short will cascade all the way back down the hill. If you’re going to miss this green, it’s best to be a little long than anywhere else.

Hole #13

The most scenic par 3 on the golf course. The elevated tee shot demands utmost precision. Take one less club and aim directly at the pin. There is a severe slope that will take a shot all the way to the front left edge. Wonderful views of Laramie Peak and herds of antelope loom large.

Hole #14

A short par 4 that demands a precise tee shot. Keep the drive down the left side and the sloping fairway will take it to the center. If you start your drive too far right, it’s a forest of pines or out of bounds. An accurate second shot should result in a birdie here.

Hole #15

This may be your last chance for birdie. Keep your drive to the right of the big cottonwood tree and you’ll be sittin’ perfect on this dogleg par 5. Two bunkers guard the left and right sides but a relatively short third shot should result in a birdie.  Par 5

Hole16.png

Hole #16

This par 4 is the most mentally challenging hole. A sharp dogleg right that hugs the out of bounds driving range. Out of bounds also comes into play through the fairway and behind the green. A Risk, Reward, hole with many decisions. The long hitters can drive the green, but it must be accurate. The smart player will play the percentages and hit a safe shot through the gap, over the corner, and have an easy second shot to an elevated green.

Hole #17

A very long, but downhill par 3. This two-tiered green is bordered by large cottonwoods on the left and rear and pines on the right. A much easier green to chip to from the front edge than anywhere else. Par is tough, but not impossible.  Par 3/4

Hole18.png

Hole #18

A straight up the hill par 4 to an elevated green. Be sure to take one extra club on the second shot, as coming up a little short will bring the ball all the way back down the hill.
