Feature Holes Descriptions:

The opener at Timber Ridge is a pure shot makers hole. This par 5 requires a  straight drive through a chute and if successful, gives you a boatload of options for your second. The hidden green can be attacked aggressively right of the guarding trees, or conservatively laying up to the bunkers and wedging it tight. Hole 9 is a sweet finish to the front. A shorter par 4 playing uphill to a plateaued, heavily sloped  green is best played with a cut drive or 3 wood leaving a precise approach. Correct club selection is critical as this multi-tiered green and the back left bunker can make 6 a reality in a hurry. Number 13 is a bombers delight. A big drop in elevation lets you unleash the big dog setting up a precision mid to long iron to an elevated well bunkered green. The par 5 15th has umpteen ways you can play it off the elevated tee decks.  The dogleg left tee shot is guarded by trees left and stacked bunkers on the right for those unable to hit the required right to left off the tee. The perched green is defended by a seizable hogs back ridge and fall always to large bunkers. Played aggressively or conservatively, a 5 here is a mighty feat.
