About the Course

 
Hole 1:  A short par 4 that has a nice risk/reward element.  The green is surrounded with bunkers, so the approach shot must be hit with precision.  With two well placed shots, you will have a great look at birdie.    Hole 10:  A par 5 that is tempting to go for in two.  A drive to the right-center of the fairway will hit the speed slot for a shorter shot into the green.  Be careful not to go over the green, as there is a large bunker waiting for you!  This can be a good hole to start the back nine, as there are ample opportunities to make a birdie.   
 Hole 2:  After an easy starting hole, you will be in for a challenge.  The tee shot should be placed on the left side of the fairway, if you want to take advantage of the speed slot.  Be careful on the second shot - as those bunkers can be deceiving.  You will be doing great to have a two putt on this green as par is a great score.  Hole 11:  A narrow fairway that slopes away from the bunkers can leave you blocked for the second shot.  Make sure to aim towards the left for a better angle.  This hole features a unique green that runs away from the player.  A shot with high trajectory is suggested so it can hold the green.  Par is a good score.
 Hole 3:  With 9 bunkers on this hole, it is imprtant to hit a tee shot in the fairway.  For your approach shot, take note of where the flag is.  There is a big ridge in the middle of the green that can make two putting a difficult task.  Hole 12:  A traditional country club hole that appears easy on the scorecard.  A driver is not needed, but a precise approach shot is.  This green also slopes from front to back, so a high trajectory shot is preffered.   
 Hole 4:  Bunkers placed strategically will lend the advantage to going over the right bunkers.  This will enable you to see the green for your approach shot.  A skinny green demands precision from the approach shot.  Hole 13:  This is a sharp dogleg to the right.  A tee shot to the middle will be left with nothing more than a 7 iron in, but a riskier tee shot to the right can lead to having a wedge in hand. 
 Hole 5:  A risky line for the tee shot can lead to a shorter 2nd shot, but there is trouble lurking.  When hitting the approch shot to the green, make sure you know where the wind is blowing from; as the trees can hide it from you.   Hole 14:  The island green surrounded by water.  A par is a great score on this hole.  Be careful once on the green, as this is one of the trickiest to read on the whole course. 
 Hole 6:  One of the toughest holes on the course, once you get to the green you will see why!  Par here is a great score.  Hole 15:  A great par 3 with watter to the front and to the left.  Bunkers lay just beyond the green, so a precise shot off the tee is demanded.  Luckily there is a relief area to the right!
 Hole 7: A great three shot hole.  Be careful on the tee shot, as there is a pond left you may not see!  Par is a good score here as well.   Hole 16:  Bunkering on this hole are placed strategically, so avoiding them is important.  This hole plays uphill, so make sure to take an extra club for the approach.  A birdie opportunity is available. 
 Hole 8:  Driving accuracy is key on this hole with bunkers to the right and water to the left.  The "broccoli" tree just to the left of the green is a great target to aim at.   Hole 17:  A long par 4 that demands two good shots.  Once you are on the green, make sure to look around and take in the beautiful sight as the sun sets over lake Erie. 
 Hole 9:  A picturesque par 3 with the Catawba rock in the background.  The bunkers can be deceiving.  A good shot will land on the large green for a nice two putt!  Hole 18:  A narrow fairway with deep rough to the right and deep bunkers to the left demand a well placed tee shot.  A shot to the green should be placed below the hole for an uphill putt!
