Golf Course Tour

 

 

Hole 1

Par 5

Yardage: 511

 

This beginning hole heads due south into Oklahoma winds that are typically very gusty. When you figure in the water that runs the length of the hole and two bunkers in front of the green, the end result is a strong potential for trouble. Well-placed fairway shots are greatly rewarded and a huge, undulated green lets you get home safely.

 

Hole 2

Par 3

Yardage: 223

 

Don’t let your guard down on No. 2 or it will bite you. Protecting the left side of the green is a long, shallow bunker. Subtle, but definite elevation changes on this green make putting a challenge.

 

 

Hole 3

Par 4

Yardage: 381

 

Many consider this a “Jekyl & Hyde” hole. Water runs full length on the left an “old course” style bunker guards the right of the green. It gently doglegs to the left and there is a towering cottonwood lurking in the bend of the fairway. With the strong south wind, you can get into trouble with a driver. A premium is placed on club selection.

 

Hole 4

Par 3

Yardage: 156

 

A unique, but unusual Par 3 hole that garners the #13 handicap rating. If the 6 ft. elevation change in the two-tiered green isn’t intimidating enough, it has a 156 yard carry over the water and is protected on all sides by immense bunkers. Landing the ball on the wrong level could result in hair-pulling three putts. It brings true meaning to the term “Signature Hole.

 

Hole 5

Par 4

Yardage: 405

 

This hole’s character comes from the out-of-bounds running the length of the hole on the left, as well as it travels into dominating south wind. The green is cropped on the left, and in the back by large mounds. Can be a great scoring hole for long hitters.

 

Hole 6

Par 4

Yardage: 391

 

From the tee box, there doesn’t seem to be much concern, but an errant shot, right or left, can add up to some serious penalty strokes.

 

Hole 7

Par 4

Yardage: 364

 

Talk about the consummate scoring hole. You get to turn around and hit down wind on this short 364-yard Par 4. Be careful, because 3 giant mounds hide the water on the left side of the fairway, as well as a precarious sand bunker in the front left of the green. The green is guarded by large “stadium-type” mounds.

 

Hole 8

Par 5

Yardage: 508

 

A challenging Par 5 that epitomizes the phrase “risk-reward. ”It begins with a stiff dogleg right with water protecting the green on the right. The green is elevated with a drastic drop to the right to the bordering water. Risk is going for two, reward is laying up and bagging a birdie.

 

Hole 9

Par 4

Yardage: 421

 

The finale to a super first 9 holes. From the tee box, mounds on the right and OB on the left are very visible. The green is enormous, has subtle elevation changes, with the only trouble possibly being water just left of the green.

 

Hole 10

Par 5

Yardage: 515

 

The second 9 begins with this risky Par 5. It starts at the tee box with OB right and water half way up the left side. A safe tee shot lets you attack a large relatively flat green bordered on all sides by towering mounds. If wind is slight, Eagle is possible.

 

Hole 11

Par 4

Yardage: 385

 

A testy Par 4. To the right of the tee box is a small pond that may not be visible and OB fence beyond that. Several rolling mounds crop the left side. A normally tough green can become a monster if the pin is tucked back right.

 

Hole 12

Par 3

Yardage: 192

 

As close as a hole can get to be a “trouble free Par 3.” The only concern on this hole is a pesky bunker on the front right of the green. Relatively small green. Solid long iron play can be rewarding.

 

Hole 13

Par 4

Yardage: 451

 

A sharp dogleg left with OB all along the far side can be treacherous. On a calm day, a big hitter can cut a substantial amount of yardage off.

 

Hole 14

Par 3

Yardage: 243

 

If you are playing the back tees, say a small prayer for front tee pin placements or it is a long Par 3. The good thing is you are hitting into the largest putting surface on the golf course. The bad thing is the green is protected in front by a large bunker. The worse thing is on a calm day, you are required to hit a fairway wood. Windy days require a driver. A miss results in the longest putt of your life.

 

Hole 15

Par 4

Yardage: 313

 

On paper this hole may appear simple. Standing on the tee box staring into 3 of the largest face bunkers you have ever seen will change your mind. A carry to the green may be tempting, but remember it’s 313 yds. to a shallow, 10 ft. high “beach. ”When you are done, you will want to play this one again.

 

Hole 16

Par 5

Yardage: 553

 

The most challenging of the four Par 5’s. Length, rolling mounds and a narrow fairway will make any golfer proud to make par. You really have to hit big to get home in two.

 

Hole 17

Par 4

Yardage: 396

 

A dogleg left with hidden water on the left side of the fairway claims many shots. Big hitters can cut the corner, but run the risk of finding the massive bunker in front of the green. Smart play is hit it where you can see it and attack the green from the fairway.

 

Hole 18

Par 4

Yardage: 381

 

A premier finishing hole that can make or break a golfer. Water protects front of green and normally can be reached with a mid to long iron off the tee. Once you are over the 2nd shot, the primary focus is to “get over the water.” A little short on the approach and the false front will send it to a watery grave. If you are conservative on the tee and aggressive on the approach, you’ll be fine!
