Description:  Hole 4 presents a tee shot that needs to be threaded between bunkers left and swamp right. A mid iron approach must avoid a nasty deep fronting bunker to find the back to front sloped green. The fifth hole has a fairway filled with mounds and overhanging live oaks that make shot shaping a must to prevent a big number.  A large pond frames the entire left side of Hole 14, a cute, precision dogleg left. Whether you lay back or hit the big dog, the green has plenty of slope and a nasty steep faced bunker to punish a less than perfect second shot. The final of the short holes presents one of the smallest and most severe greens, with a 2 foot high plateau separating front from back. The large bunkers front and left will make you pay for anything less than perfect off the tee.
