A gentle opening hole. A long tee shot down the left side of the fairway on this dogleg left gives it the best chance of rolling to the bottom of the hill. A well-contoured green, framed by a lake and the first of many Alister MacKenzie-style bunkers, set the tone for the rest of the golf course.
A fairly straightaway par 5, but a lengthy one. At 601 yards, hitting the green in two is a long shot. Keeping your drive down the left side, avoiding the fairway bunkers, affords the best approach to a heavily bunkered green.
A long, dog leg right par 4. At all costs avoid the bunker complex down the right side of the fairway or suffer the consequences. This hole is named in honor of our resident Osprey eagles nesting to the left of the fairway.
Accuracy is at a premium here. A short par 3 that is well guarded by a lake on the left and deep-faced bunkers in front of the green. Miss long as most balls will trickle off the hill and roll back onto the green.
Long hitters will be tempted to hit a high draw for a shot at the green, but beware of the fairway bunkers. The smart play is to hit a long to medium iron down the middle to set up a shot to a green devoid of bunkers with a deceiving false front and numerous collection areas.
A good chance for birdie, but you must negotiate the fairway bunker about 60 yards short of the green and the small green. A drive down the left side, challenging the fairway bunker will give you a shot to hit the green in two, but the smart play is to stay right and take your chances from there.
A great view but a challenging par 3. Perhaps one less club due to the elevation drop and the prudent play is to the right side of the green. Beware of the prevailing winds which blow from left to right.
With dramatic views of the Williams Fork range as the backdrop, enjoy your tee shot as it flies forever on this downhill par 4. There is much more room on the left side of the fairway than you may think. Be sure to aim your tee shot towards the clubhouse to set up a good approach. The approach shot is to a deep green guarded on the right by a pond. This is mountain golf at its’ best.
The start of the homeward journey. At all costs avoid the fairway bunker on the left. Miss right and a lost ball is a probability. An uphill approach shot to a deep green with a false front awaits. A bunker over the green will be a very popular collection area.
As the name implies a great risk/reward hole. A long tee shot presents an opportunity to get home in two with a fairway wood over an expansive lake. The prudent play is to lay up to the left of the lake on your second shot and challenge the lake on your third shot with a short iron.
A long par three with a very deep green. Favor the left side of the green as the ball should kick right back onto the green. Missing long or right is not a playable option due to the severe drop off and dense foliage. Once on the green, severe contours will challenge the best of strokes.
A generous landing zone awaits an uphill tee shot. Favor the right side as any shots to the left of the fairway will forever be lost The approach shot is to a semi blind green that is well protected by deep bunkers on two sides. The large size of this green will result in many three putts.
The essence of the Raven. With the dramatic Gore Mountain Range as the background, you will be awed by the beauty of this hole. The lake that fronts this green requires an exacting and aggressive tee shot. For the faint of heart the bail out area to the right and short of the green is the way to go.
Accuracy is at a premium on this hole. At all costs, avoid the fairway bunker on the right as your approach shot is slightly uphill to a green fronted by a mountain brook and a cavernous bunker and guarded on the right by the most severe bunker on the golf course. Take an extra club here as your approach is likely to come back to the green off the severe backstop behind the green.
Our signature hole and one of nature’s finest. A long par 5 meandering down and dog legging to the right. The best approach to this green is from the left side of the fairway but beware of the deep bunker guarding the left side of the green.
One of the most beautiful holes on the golf course. Aspens and pines frame the tee shot, but beware of the creek running diagonally across the fairway beyond the fairway bunker. The approach will require an accurate shot to a slightly uphill, deep green surrounded by MacKenzie bunkers.
The end of the journey. A demanding tee shot framed by towering lodge pole pines and a daunting fairway bunker presents an approach shot to a deep green that seems to go on into infinity but is guarded on the left by strategic bunkers. Take one last look and savor the moment.
