Layout and Signature Holes

The signature hole is number 7, which is a 615 yard par 5 that begins with a 90 foot drop from the tee to the fairway. The initial landing area is bracketed by 3 bunkers, making controlled shots essential. The second landing area is also well bunkered, combining with the bunkers at the green to require an entrance from the right side of the second landing area.
