Feature Holes Descriptions:

The 6th Hole is a medium length Par 4 that presents a narrow landing area pinched by tall pines. The slight dogleg left plays to a figure eight shaped green that is guarded left by a large trap and water. Hole 8 is filled with options. This lengthy Par 4 presents a generous fairway with bunker left and pond right. The interrupted fairway leaves you with a long iron or hybrid into a long green perched beside a deep pond left. The Par 5 12th is a wonderful risk / reward hole. The severe dogleg right tempts you to skirt the water right as much as you can to shorten the route to the large sloped green. The penultimate hole is a true three shot Par 5, with placement of your drive and second shot so critical to seeing, let alone reaching the island like green surrounded by thick nasty palmettos.
