front nine

The front nine was constructed back in 1996, and range from the short 122 yard par three hole 7 to the difficult, uphill 500 yard hole 6. The front nine require delicate accuracy due to the narrow fairways. Some even suggest keeping the driver in the bag and pulling out the irons.

back nine

The newer back nine are a terrific complement to the challenges of the front. More open, more forgiving, and for most, more opportunities for lower scores. Hole 12 is the back nine’s most difficult, and hole 16 is the course's signature, with tee boxes perched at 1,333 metres (4,353').
