The Front 9 is unique as it has 3 par 3s, 4 par 4s and 2 par 5s. Par is 35 and is pace-rated by the USGA & WPGA for 2 hours and 10 minutes. On the Front 9, golfers will find generous fairways and challenging green complexes. Dodging the numerous bunkers and avoiding the tall fescue lining the fairways is the key to a good score.

The Back 9 is slightly longer in length which places a premium on longer tee shots. However, accuracy is still required to keep your golf ball out of the tall fescue grasses. As with front 9, Par is 35 and pace rating by the USGA & WPGA for 2 hours and 10 minutes. But with added yardage and only 2 par 3s, both of which are quite challenging, par is always a good score, and a birdie is a great one!
