No. 1.

This opening par 4 is uphill, slight dogleg right, straight away and flat with out-of-bounds right. A local rule (for all holes) is that putts will break toward the hospital.  This is one of our flatter greens.

Hole 1-10 Fini

No. 2.

This par 3 leaves little room for error.  Miss right, you’re on the hill going down; miss left,  you have bunkers and the No. 3 tee box.  Lots of downhill slope on putts.

Hole 2-11 Fini

No. 3.

This is rated as our easiest par 4.  It’s flat and straight away with a fairly flat green, depending on pin placement.

Hole 3-12 Fini

No. 4.

This dogleg right par 4 has a left sloping fairway with an elevated green sloping mainly from right to left.
Hole 4-13 Fini

No. 5.

This par 3 requires an accurate tee shot, with trees left and bunker right.  It generally plays longer than it measures.
Hole 5-14 Fini

No.  6.

This downhill par 4 slopes left to right.  Approach the uphill green to the left as everything breaks to the right.  Our toughest putting hole.
Hole 6-15 Fini

No. 7.

This downhill straight away flat par 4 is our second longest hole.  Avoid the pond to the right of the green.  This is one of our flattest greens, although you will find plenty of break, depending on pin placement.
Hole 7-16 Fini

No. 8.

This 400-yard mostly uphill par 4 for men and par 5 for women is our longest and was once rated among the Top 10 toughest holes in Northern California by The Sacramento Bee.  Two or three good shots required to reach the green.  Don’t be long; it’s a tough chip back down onto the sloping green.
Hole 8-17 Fini

No. 9.

This downhill par 4 has out of bounds right and a large pine guarding the left side of the fairway.  Putts break left to right more than you might think.
Hole 9-18 Fini
