This is a good par 3 that has a canal in front but only a very short or pulled shot will find the canal. This hole is one you don’t want to be long since the eagles nest area is close behind the green. Play your shot a little to the right side of the green eliminating the mounds and canal to the right. If you’re short and to the right you’ll have an easy up and down.

The 11th hole is a dogleg left and one of the most scenic holes on the course. It’s a short hole but has a very intimidating visual tee shot. You will be looking down a funnel for your tee shot to the fairway which makes it look like a really tight landing area. You have a canal running in front of the fairway that is not visible from the tee box.

There is a lake that runs from the canal to left side of the green. The best shot for a right-hander is a little draw out of the tunnel and into the fairway. But be careful, too much draw and you’ll find the lake. Once you’re in the fairway you’ll have a short iron into the green. The green is protected by a sand bunker on the left front. The green is narrow front to back. The green slopes from back to front and right to left so the green will hold your second shot but be careful where you leave your putt.

You don’t want to be long with your approach shot since you have a cart path and out of bounds behind the green. If the pin is on the left side of the green you should play it safe away from the sand bunker. You might end up with a tough downhill putt, but your approach shot won’t be swimming with the fishes.

You’ll be starting the back nine with a short par 4 that might tempt you to pull out your driver. Be careful, you might be able to drive this green but you also might find yourself in a lot of trouble.

The fairway has water down the right with two sand bunkers nestled between the first lake, then the second lake you can’t see from the tee. The lake runs down the right and up to the green. To the left you have a marsh area that you must be careful to stay right of. The best approach is to get the distance to the bunkers on the right and take a club to come up just short of the bunkers.

Then you’ll have a short iron into the green, hopefully setting you up with a good birdie try. This green slopes up from front to back allowing you to go for the pin.
