Hole #1
Par 5/0 yards
Medium length par 5: If you can hit it long, this is an easy green to reach in two. If not, it's still a pretty easy par. Just avoid the lake on the left, and hitting it right is just plain bad. There is another small pond on the right and the driving range, but the fairway is plenty wide enough for you to hit. Avoid going right with your second shot due to woods and a small creek. Behind the green is another creek.
Hole #2
Par 3/0 yards
Medium par 3: Pulling a shot left is trouble. If you're gonna miss, miss right. There is extremely little room behind the green, so better short than long. There is a bunker behind the green also.
Hole #3
Par 4/0 yards
Long par 4: Hardest hole on this golf course, maybe top ten hardest in the city. If you're not a long hitter, forget reaching in two and play it as a par 5. Swinging hard will only pull your shot o.b. left, or into the bunker on the left side of the fairway. Right is trees and cart path. Even if you hit the fairway, it's all uphill to a green that doesn't hold that great. The bunker front right is also a problem. Honestly, if you don't crush drives regularly, play for bogey and win this hole 4 out of 5 times.
Hole #4
Par 4/0 yards
Short par 4: This should be an easy par. The biggest problem on this downhill par 4 is the bunker on the right that seems to catch a million balls. Avoid it, you have a short iron in to the green. Don't miss the green left, it feeds down from there sharply.
Hole #5
Par 4/0 yards
Short par 4: Can you hit a draw? If you can, this hole is easy. If you can't, well...it's not so easy. Hit your tee shot down the middle of the fairway but play it to turn left. Otherwise, it may run through the fairway into the rough, or even worse, the trees. Your approach is a short iron, but be aware that bunkers are on both the left and right.
Hole #6
Par 3/0 yards
Med. par 3: Downhill par three. The bunker on the right is not too bad. Missing left means your ball feeds down by the fence. Missing right of the bunker feeds the ball into trees on the other side of the cart path. A middle iron should do fine here. Short is better than long.
Hole #7
Par 4/0 yards
Med. par 4: Another easy hole. Even average shots should lead to a good par opportunity. Left is bad for multiple reasons. There is a bunker on the left, with a creek on the other side of the cart path. Even if you hit the bunker or go past it, a tree will block your shot into the green. Right is fine, (not way right!) even if you miss the fairway, it's a short or middle iron into a large green. Do not miss the green left or long, the ball will feed into trouble.
Hole #8
Par 5/0 yards
Med. par 5: Play this hole smart, par should be an automatic. See the cart path running down the left side. Stay right of it, there is nothing but trouble on the other side, all the way down. There are a block of bushes and trees about 50 yards in front of the tees on the right... you have about ten more yards of fairway to the right of those before a small pond comes into play. It's a wide fairway, just put a smooth swing on your ball to keep it in play. Your second shot needs to avoid the right side, the lake cuts into the fairway until it is practically beside the green. The green is well protected with bunkers on both sides, but it is large and holds fairly well.
Hole #9
Par 4/0 yards
Short par 4: Par is relatively easy here also, given you don't go left off the tee. Left is bad. Potential lawsuit bad! Yanking a ball will put lives in danger as cars streaming down Cleveland Avenue. Too far right is o.b. also. A driver is not needed, a long iron is fine. The more left you can hit it (and still be in the fairway) the more distance you cut off. The green is elevated with a bunker on the right.

Hole #10
Par 5/0 yards
Short par 5: Want to know how Tiger Woods feels on most par 5s? Here is the chance for many golfers. Hit a driver off the tee. Obviously, avoid the fairway bunker on the right. It's farther than it looks to carry, so just go left of it. Anywhere on the fairway is fine, but middle/right is ideal. The shot into the green (if you're going for it in two) is a bit tricky. There is water both left and right, and a bunker fronting the left side of the green. There is more water behind the green also. But it is big green that holds the ball well. If you are laying up, a short iron will do fine and then another should knock it close.
Hole #11
Par 4/0 yards
Med. par 4: Another great hole for those with a draw. The water on both sides of the tee really don't come into play, unless you really duff it off the tee. That big tree just left of the cart path about 220yds away really does affect this hole. Hit as close to it while still being right of it as possible for the best shot in. If you can't reach it, hit away from it and stay middle/right. The green is tough to hold, with bunkers on both the left and right.
Hole #12
Par 4/0 yards
Med par 4: This is an easy hole made hard. There are a few bushes and a tree to the right of the fairway. For some reason, many golfers insist on hitting them. There are a line of trees way left of the fairway. Again, many people end up over there. Whether you hit a fade or draw, a tee shot anywhere on the fairway leaves you a good chance of getting on in regulation. Don't overswing on this hole, distance just isn't needed. The green slopes back to front so keep that in mind on your approach.
Hole #13
Par 4/0 yards
Short par 4: The temptation here is to pull out your driver and try to reach the green on this short par 4 that doglegs left. In a word...Don't. There is nothing but trouble for the drive that isn't hit long and perfect. A bunker that you have to carry, multiple trees that can both deflect your ball and obscure your view, and poor lies that will make whatever distance you have to the green that much harder. A long iron is plenty of club to give yourself an ideal angle and distance in. You can go too far straight, into a bunker or even worse. Hit a long iron down the middle and a short iron in.
Hole #14
Par 3/0 yards
Long par 3: This hole begins the "Amen Corner" of this course. A three hole stretch that will often make or break your round. This long uphill par 3 often requires golfers to hit a wood into it. A bunker in the front left of the green catches lots of balls, the one behind the green gets a few also. Do not miss left, it slopes severely away there. Right isn't good either, but at least it often feeds down the hill if you don't go too far right.
Hole #15
Par 4/0 yards
Long par 4: Another tough hole. Your drive cannot go left, but too far right leads to problems of another sort. The hill on the right is full of thick rough, and the ball often gets caught in it without feeding down. The bunker on the right side of the fairway is only in play for long hitters. You will still have a long ways in on your approach, but not too much real trouble outside of a bunker back left of the green.
Hole #16
Par 4/0 yards
Med. par 4: Golfers tend to make this hole tougher than it should be. Lots of potential trouble off the tee, so be careful here. The bunker on the left should be avoided, but you have to flirt with it to avoid the real trouble. The tree line on the right is tough to deal with, and the water just past it speaks for itself. Even on the fairway, right is tough due to one tree where the fairway narrows. The lake runs all the way up the right side, so don't miss your approach right.
Hole #17
Par 3/0 yards
Med. par 3: Water right on this hole, don't go there. Bunker on the left is easier to hit out of than the one on the right. Not much room to run the ball up, so take plenty of club. But there is water behind the green also.
Hole #18
Par 5/0 yards
Short par 5 - A good finishing hole. The water on the left goes way up the left side, avoid the left at all costs. Right is fine. The bunkers are tough to reach, but even if you do, par is still not hard. Lay up to the 100 yd. marker and it is an easy wedge in to this elevated green. If you're gonna miss this green, miss right. It drops off to the left. This green has many undulations in it, so be wary of pin placement.
