Hole #1 – Road Hole – Par 4
Good starting hole, plays straightaway. O.B. is on the left and driving range is on the right. A good drive produces a second shot of about 150 yds. Relatively flat green. With the pin in the front, fire at the pin, with the pin in the back play to the middle of the green.
Hole #2 – Reserve – Par 5
Requires a straight and long tee shot. Lateral hazard on the left and a water hazard that the tee ball must clear. Golfers then have to navigate a tree lined fairway all the way to the green. With a good drive, golfers are rewarded with a go at this green in two, but don’t miss the green left. Easy hole to birdie, but high numbers lurk about. Good luck!
Hole #3 – Scenic – Par 3
This is a good par. Green is surrounded by a lateral hazard left and long, and mounds on the right. Golfers must hit a short to middle iron depending on which tees you are playing. Enjoy the view of the valley from the green.
Hole #4 – Roon the Ben – Par 4
Great hole. A slight dog-leg left with a tree lined lateral hazard on the left. The landing area is guarded on the right by two bunkers. A good drive in the fairway sets up a second shot of about 130 yds. The green is guarded by a depression to the right and in front.
Hole #5 – Retreat – Par 4
Short hole. Golfers have a choice at trying to drive this hole or laying up. A driver that is hit solid and straight should end up on or near the green, but spray the ball and pay the price. Lay up with a 3 or 4 iron and have a second shot of 100 yds or less, but don’t go long. Good birdie hole.
Hole #6 – Dogleg – Par 4
This is a tricky little dog-leg to the right, don’t let the ravine in front of the tee bother you. The landing area is guarded by three bunkers on the right. The trick to this hole is to see where the pin is on the green. If the pin is in the front, hit your tee shot about 210 yds. If the pin is in the back, go with your driver. Green is guarded in the front by a bunker, and a lateral hazard left and long. The green is undulated and very hard to hit. Make a par and run to the next hole.
Hole #7 – Bunker – Par 3
A short to middle iron tee shot. Green is guarded by a large bunker that wraps around the front and right side. A lateral hazard is off to the right and O.B. is long. The green is very big and accepts balls well. Hard to read a putt on this green, therefore it yields few birdies. Good par.
Hole #8 – Backdrop – Par 4
This is the toughest hole on the front side. You must navigate a long and straight drive through the trees to have a shot at the green, and then you are only half finished. The fairway is guarded by trees all the way to the green. Two large pot bunkers protect this elevated green. A precise second shot must be made to make an easy par. This hole yields a lot of high numbers.
Hole #9 – Wee Burn – Par 4
Short but tricky hole that gets its name from a hole in Scotland.. A burn that cannot be seen runs through the end of the fairway. You must lay the ball up short of this burn. Use a low to middle iron or a fairway wood. The approach shot will be to an uphill green guarded by a deep bunker in the front. The green is long from left to right so it is important to be on the side of the green that the flag is on.
Hole #10 – Hollow Hill – Par 4
Plays straightaway. O.B. is short left and a lateral hazard runs down the entire right side of the hole. The fairway and green slopes from left to right, so ball position is important. Play your tee shot and approach to favor the left hand side of the hole. The green is guarded by a bunker short right and by a severely sloped bank on the right. A par on this hole is great.
Hole #11 – Ravine – Par 3
Brook Hill’s Signature Hole. A huge ravine separates the tee from the green. A middle to long iron shot into a two tiered green is required. The green is surrounded by four bunkers and is elevated somewhat. Be sure that you are on the level of the green that the flag is on, if not, a long putt awaits you. Good hole to par. Good luck.
Hole #12 – Waterfall – Par 5
This is a risk/reward hole. The tee shot landing area is guarded by two bunkers, a lateral hazard on the left, and trees on the right. A long and straight drive on this hole will give you the reward of going at this green in two, but beware. The green is guarded in front by a huge ravine with water falls and in back by O.B. The ravine extends out about 80 yds. from the green, so if you lay up, make sure you lay up. Go for it.
Hole #13 – Grassy Meadow – Par 4
Slight dog-leg to the right. The fairway is guarded on the left with O.B. and one large bunker on the right. A good drive on this hole will setup a second shot of about 150 yds. The green is very big and is elevated somewhat. Pay attention to where the flag is and hit it close.
Hole #14 – Lagoon – Par 4
Tee it high and let it fly. No real trouble off the tee, however O.B. is far left. This hole begins with the second shot. The green is extremely long from front to back and is guarded by water on the left and behind. The second shot will usually be a mid to long iron shot that starts over water and makes its way to land. If you hit it right, a huge bank sloping to the green sometimes bounces your ball out on to the green. Make a par on this hole and you will feel like a million bucks.
Hole #15 – Home – Par 5
Tee it high and let it fly. There is no real trouble off the tee except for two fairway bunkers on the right. A good tee shot will get you within 200 yds. of the green. Be careful not to miss your approach shot to the left, for trees and a small depression seem to gobble up balls. Green slopes from right to left and is guarded on the right by a bunker. Good hole to make a birdie.
Hole #16 – Mounds – Par 3
A short to middle iron shot is needed for this hole. The green slopes from back to front and is guarded in the front by a bunker and mounds on the left and back. An accurate tee shot will reward you with a good putt for a birdie.
Hole #17 – Tickly Tap – Par 4
This short but sharp dog-leg right gets its name from a famous hole in Scotland. It is one of the trickiest holes on the course. Longer hitters may have a go at this one off the tee, but beware. On the tee shot only, there is in course O.B. on the right hand side of the hole. The left side of the hole is also guarded by O.B. Once you put your long iron or fairway wood shot in the fairway, you’re faced with a small target. The green slopes from back to the front and is guarded by two small pot bunkers short right. Mounds on the right and a lateral water hazard behind, frame the green.
Hole #18 – Reservoir – Par 4
Long and tough hole. O.B. to the left and mounds to the right that frames the fairway. This hole requires an accurately hit drive both in distance and direction. Your second shot you will hit a middle to long iron over water to a very narrow green. The green is surrounded in front by water, to the left with a bunker, and in back with a hill. Your second shot must be very accurate to make par. Good luck.
