Take a cart if you wish, but Prince William Golf Course offers a great course to play and to walk. There are some ups and downs along the way, but the knolls are gentle and the lies are rarely tricky. The majority of the fairways could be called wide open and generous, perfect for players of all levels.

# 6 is a very short par-3, 148 yards from the back and 101 from the front tees. You're going a little downhill to a medium-sized green. A bunker protects the entire front of the green. It's a pretty good hole even though it's fairly short.

# 9 is a par-4 for men and a par-5 for women, playing at 405 yards from the back and 336 from the forward tees. You'll need a downhill tee shot. Then you'll contend with a small creek running across the fairway. After that there's more trouble ahead. It's a difficult hole because the approach is all uphill. The green slopes from back to front with a bunker protecting the right side of the green. This is a tough hole even for better players.

#11 is an interesting par-3 measuring 245 yards from the back tees and 180 from the front. The green is sloped from back to front and right to left. You have to carry a large, wide creek to get to the green. The creek is really in play, especially from the back tees. A lot of players worry about making it to the green on the 11th due to the water and decide to lay up in front of the creek instead.

#12 is the longest hole (605 yards from the back and 450 from the forward tees). From the tee box all the way down the right hand side is out of bounds because of homes on that side. It's a big, big hole, a slight dogleg left to an elevated green with a bunker on the right front of the green. The 12th can be very difficult even allotting three shots to the green, in fact. Your second shot will be slightly uphill. There's about a 10- to 12-foot elevation change.

The 18th at Prince William Golf Course is a 408-yard par-4 (390 yards from the forward tees) that will test your nerve and leave you with a sense of accomplishment. It's a picturesque spot where you can see ponds and lakes as you eye the tree-lined fairway. Two large ponds are in play here and you have to carry them to get to the fairway. That water attracts a lot of balls. But cosmetically it's a really pleasing hole. It looks wide open, but it's really not. You get a warm and fuzzy feeling until you take your shot. But there's a big green on the finishing hole that is “user friendly." It has bunkers on either side, however.

Distances, ratings and slopes at Prince William: 6,635 yards (72.1/125); 6,238 yards (70.1/124); 5,595 (71.3/119).
