Hole #1 is rated as one of the toughest holes in Southern California. This hole is a straight-away par 4 that measures 429 yards from the Blue Tees. Mid to high handicappers should play a high percentage tee shot and play the hole as a short par 5. Long ball hitters favor the left side. The ball will kick to the right, so you may want to add a half to full club for uphill approach shot.

Hole 4 is a challenging and lengthy 584 yard par 5 that is reachable downwind in the winter time. Be careful of the out of bounds on the second and approach shots. Long hitters try to lay-up 90-100 yards to avoid the fairway bunker on the left center. Subtract half a club for approach shot.

Hole 16 is a reachable par 5 measuring 502 yards from the blue tees. Watch fairway bunker on right side for second shot. The ball kicks to the left on approach shot. Stay below and to the left of the pin if it is tucked right.

Hole 18 at Knollwood Golf Course is an easy, downhill par 4 measuring 371 from the blue tees. Long hitters hug the right side so you can see the pin on your approach shot. Don’t worry about the fairway bunker on the left, there is room long and left. Green is very deep, so pay attention to pin position. Green breaks less than it appears.
