    Make sure you bring bug spray to begin the round as the gnats will drive you crazy especially on the first 4 holes. Hole #5 is a very difficult par 3 with out of bounds just left of and over the green which is fairly wide but not very deep. Two bunkers protect the green left and right with very little area to run the ball onto the green.

    Now we come to hole #7. A very wide fairway on the severe dogleg left par 5. Unless you hit the ball the correct distance you will be forced to "chip" the ball to a small area that slopes severely to the right. A "half dead" gnarly pine tree protects the corner. Any semi-errant shot and you will be punished severely and will end up again chipping the ball to a small area for your approach shot to the green which is very much downhill. If you make a par consider it a blessing!

    The greens on this course are fairly large and deep so club selection is very important. Make sure you hit the ball very straight to avoid having to escape the numerous bushes and gnarly pines that were planted years ago as 150 yard markers. Get behind them and you will be forced to chip it sideways back to the fairway.

    #17 is a very narrow off the tee "lay up" off the tee par 5 dogleg left. Unless you hit the ball the correct distance off the tee par will be impossible.

    The greens on this course are average speed and slope from back to front. Try to stay below the hole on most holes. Most difficult hole on the course is #12. It is uphill off the tee and plays much longer than its length. A large bunker protects the right side of the green. Try to stay out of it! Par is a great score on this hole.

    The fairways are usually kept a little "high" so do not expect much roll off the tee and also expect a "flyer" from time to time
