Players start out their day at MLCC with a mid-length par 4. Like many of the holes, finding the fairway is crucial. With a long fairway bunker running up the left side and another fairway bunker on the right, longer hitters may opt to hit a fairway wood or hybrid. The approach to the green is difficult, as shots landing on the left and right will run off the green. Par is a great score to start your day.

The second hole is no easy test as it is the longest of the four par 3’s on the golf course. Many golfers will be hitting hybrids and long irons into a par 3 with two bunkers in front. However, players can’t take too much club, or they will find a hidden water hazard behind the back right portion of the green. Staying below the hole is beneficial as this green is sloped from back to front.

This long par 4 is the third hardest hole on the golf course. A long dogleg left par 4 with out of bounds lining the whole left side. Players have to hit their drive down a chute of a fairway, lined with trees on the right and left.

This risk reward par 5 can lead to a great birdie opportunity, but also a very big number. There is out of bounds running the whole left side of this hole. Additionally, there are two sister ponds on the left, with the first pond starting at 220 yards from the front of the green. Longer hitters will have to decide if they want to hit driver and risk going in the pond or if they take less club to hit the fairway. The second shot landing area is very small as there is a pond on the left and another hazard on the right. Around the green there are two front greenside bunkers that catch players going for the green in two.

The last hole on the front is a long dogleg left par 5. The right side of the fairway is ideal since there is a large tree on the left that will block shots from the left. Laying up to a good number is smart as there are multiple fairway bunkers. This green runs away from you, making it hard to get the ball close to the hole. Players would rather hit the ball past the flag on front and middle pins.

This mid length par 4 sets the tone for the back nine. This dogleg right par 4 has a large fairway bunker on the left and trees up the right side. Players that lose their ball right will have to punch out from the trees or will find the large waste bunker on hole 17. The second shot requires a well struck mid iron to carry a pond that starts about 70 yards from the middle of the green. It only gets harder from here as this green is the most heavily sloped from back to front. Players have to stay below the hole or they will have a high chance of three putting.

This par 3 is one of the signature holes of our course. It is short in length, but can be intimidating due to the large waste bunker in front of the green. Players must take enough club to make sure they do not find this steep bunker. This green is two tiered where players should make sure they are putting on the correct tier.

The hardest hole on the back nine is this dogleg left par 4. From the tee, players can not see the green and have to carry a wildlife preserve. Players who try to hug the left side must be careful since you can not see all the trees from the tee and many balls will be lost on the left. The approach to this green is very difficult as there is a huge bunker on the right and a pond on the left that will catch most balls hit to the left of the green. This green is two tiered where downhill putts are hard to stop.

This picturesque par 4 requires a tee shot in the fairway. A huge pond on the right covers the whole length of the hole. Longer hitters won’t have to hit driver on this short par four to be left with a short iron or wedge.

Gold White Blue Green Orange 337 324 324 303 251
This par 3 will be a mid iron for most players. There are bunkers surrounding every side of this green. The front bunker is deceiving as it is 25 yards before the front of the green. Shots landing on the left edge of the green can spin off into the bunker and shots landing in the back right can roll into a small ditch. This green isn’t tricky but players will want to stay below the hole. Member’s tip: For front pin locations, play it a few yards longer to avoid the false front.

This short par 4 is the start of a scorable finishing stretch. A pond on the right comes into play the first 210 yards off the tee. Many players will elect to hit an iron off the tee due to the many fairway bunkers on both sides of this hole. Players taking more club will want to favor the right side of the fairway. There is a front right greenside bunker and a hidden bunker over the green. This three tiered green requires accurate approach shots for reasonable looks at birdie.

Another short par 4 requires decision making off the tee. Many players will want to hit fairway woods or irons off the tee to avoid two fairway bunkers. Longer hitters will want to wait for the group infront to get on the green because tee shots will run out if you carry these bunkers. In order to score well, players will need to stay below the hole as iron shots hit long will leave a very difficult chip.

Gold White Blue Green Orange 307 297 297 297 207
Our last hole is a getable par 5 with out of bounds covering the whole left side. Players will want to favor the right side of the fairway to avoid a couple fairway bunkers. Planning out your second shot is critical since there is a creek running across the fairway about 90 yards from the center of the green. There is a bunker on the left stretching the last 50 yards of the hole. Shots hit onto the right side of the green risk falling off the back right into a ditch. Playing your approach to the center of the green is ideal.
