A gentle dog leg right par 4 to start your round. A long, straight drive will avoid the three fairway bunkers on the right side and reach the upper plateau of the fairway. A high approach will clear the strategically placed front bunker.
Three right side fairway bunkers tend to influence swings to the left into a swale on this par 5. The second shot should elude a large bunker set into a hillside on the right. The approach is well uphill over a front bunker to a three-tiered, angular green.
The Sierra Nevada Mountains are the backdrop of this beautiful par 4. The elevated tee shot must skirt a lake and avoid a tough bunker on the right. Enjoy the serene setting of this hole in a remote corner of the course.
A tight landing area between O. B. left and a lake on the right begins this par 5. A cross bunker is in play on the second shot. A penal grass bunker fronts the green to swallow up any short approach.
Our par 3 signature hole. An elevated tee shot to a dramatic, two-level green. Water surrounds two-thirds of this green with a bunker to catch a bail-out shot. Make a par and walk away happy and relieved.
This is a dog-leg right par 4 with a semi-blind tee shot. A precise approach to the proper tier of the elevated green is a must. Miss the green and you've got some work to do.
The prevailing breeze against you adds some teeth to this downhill par 4. Avoid the left fairway bunkers and you'll have a good look at this well-framed green.
A short, picturesque par 3 over water. Hit the green and don your reading glasses as there are many subtle breaks.
Our #1 handicap hole for many reasons. This long par 4 generally plays into a breeze. A large lake on the right can be avoided entirely with a big drive, but it is a menace for most. A good, long approach to the slightly elevated green will reward you with an opportunity to finish the front nine on a good note.
This short par 4 requires an accurate drive to avoid the O. B. on both sides. Carry the green-side grass bunker left and sand bunkers right on your approach to this large green.
Our longest par 3 can be stretched to 208 yards from the black tee. The three-level green is backed by a view of the sierra foothills and Friant Dam.
A big hitter can reach this par 5 in two. The landing area for the drive must be fit between a strategic bunker on the left and tight O.B. on the right. The fairway turns gently left to a green with an ample back-to-front slope.
The first of a pair of very challenging par 4s. This one plays directly into the prevailing breeze. The fun begins at the green where golfers contend with two distinct levels and a large left-side bunker. Collection chipping areas attract approach shots pushed to the right.
This long, dog-leg left par 4 requires a long carry off of the tee to reach the level, wider portion of the fairway. Another long approach shot will get you to the green which is surrounded by mounds, bunkers and swales.
A nice "breather" of a par 5, well deserved after surviving the previous two holes. A drive down the left side will carry a lake and avoid a fairway bunker on the right. A couple of solid shots will get you home for a birdie putt.
This par 4 has a generous landing area for the tee shot. The approach should receive your full attention as anything left will get wet.
A unique par 3 with water guarding the front, right and back of the green. The most unique feature of this two-level green is the sharp slope from the front level down to the lower back level.
A truly great finishing par 4. Water is very much in play to the right on every shot. The prevailing breeze accentuates a shot in that direction. Pulling a shot to avoid the water will get you onto rough covered mounds or even O.B. This hole has made or broken many a round.
