#1 is a beautiful par-4 that starts from a raised tee box, and doglegs right around a sandy waste area. You can only see the landing area and not the green. Upon reaching the fairway the green suddenly comes into view perched up in the air with nothing beyond it but miles of open space across the marsh land of Reeds Bay. The position of the players second shot is essential to allow him a good line in, but even with a short iron the contours of the green make the ideal position on the putting surface a very small target.
#2 is one of the world's great short par-3s.
# 3, a 375 yard par-4, heads back inland.
#6, a par-5, plays all of it's 548 yards. It is protected by sand and waste area up the entire left side while trees stand guard on the right.
#10 at 475 yards, slowly climbs uphill and gives you a taste of the challenge that awaits you on the back nine.
#16 , a par-5, begins with a raised green. The view from this tee is both spectacular and a little daunting. The fairway sweeps down to the landing area then gently rises to the green. Sand and water guard the entire left side of the 584 yards, while dense pines guard the right.
