The ninth hole is a par 3 that plays 195 yards. Typically you’ll have the wind at your back since you’ll be hitting to the north. This hole has a false front so it may play longer than it looks.

There are sand bunkers right and left so don’t leave yourself with a long bunker shot. Enjoy this par three because the next par three you play will test your nerves.

When you reach the eighth hole, congratulations as you have reached your first breather. Of course the hole has water right and out of bounds left.

You’ll have a generous landing area between the fairway bunkers left and right and the prevailing wind will be helping. From the landing area you will have about 140 to 160 yards to the green.

This shot is uphill so take a little extra club. If you avoid the fairway bunkers you should have a good chance for a birdie putt.

This is the hardest hole and #1 handicap hole on the course and there are plenty of reasons for that distinction. The tee shot is very intimidating and you’ll need to focus on the fairway and not all the potential trouble you’re facing.

You have a significant carry to get over the water and if you push or pull the shot you have water right and natural preserve on the left. An ideal drive would be aimed at the fairway bunker with a slight right to left curve.

Since this hole is 433 yards from the back tee you most likely will be facing a second shot that will also require accuracy and some length. This green tilts back to front so if you can hit a high shot into the green you shouldn’t have much trouble holding the putting surface. Once on the green be careful of the subtle breaks and make sure you have looked at your putt all around.
