Out of bounds and lateral hazards come into play on the first four holes and then you are into four longer holes. Number 9 is a medium-length par 3 but you must carry the centre of the green to stay on.
By this time you are ready for a break, and the clubhouse and refreshments are a short walk away.
Resuming play, number 10 is a short par 4 but requires a 200-yard carry to clear the corner, if you dare. Number 11 is another par 3 on which you must carry the creek twice. Twelve is a short dogleg right, but watch the trees on the right. Thirteen has a pond to the right of the green and a trap short and left. Fourteen is a longer par 4 with a sand trap close to the landing area for your tee shot. Fifteen has trees right and left off the tee, and ponds to the right on your second shot. Sixteen is a long par 3 partially over a pond, with trees right and left of the green. Sixteen is a long par 3 partially over a pond, with trees right and left of the green. Seventeen is a long par 5 with trees on both sides all the way to the green. A slight right-to-left off the tee will set up a mid iron and wedge to the green. From 17 you cross the creek, and the climb to the 18th tee box will get your heart rate up if you are walking.
The clubhouse is in sight and with a good tee shot you are a short iron to a green with sand in front and the creek behind. Make your approach a good one as you may have a gallery watching from the deck of the clubhouse. Time for a refreshment, snack or meal.
