hole 6



hole 7

Hole 7
One of the area's toughest par threes from the back tee with a left hole location.  Better hit the part of the green where hole is located due to large size of green.

Par 3
Black 203
Blue 186
White 178
Gold 127
Red 117
Handicap: 16

Good par 4.  Approach shot distance is critical with water in front of green and trees behind.

White 321
Gold 312
Red 291
Handicap: 6

hole 8

hole 11

Hole 11
Avoid OB and trees on the right.  Good tee shot sets up a short approach.

Par 3
Black 363
Blue 353
White 342
Gold 300
Red 288
Handicap: 15

Hole 12
This is a short par 4.  Don't be misled by the length as it has a very high stroke average.  OB right, water left, fairway bunker come into play on tee shot.  May want to consider a layup from the tee to avoid a disaster.

Par 4
Black 340
Blue 334
White 327
Gold 320
Red 312
Handicap: 13

hole 12


hole 13

Hole 13
Hit the tee shot to right center of fairway and you will still be left with a difficult second shot to a challenging green.   If you drive the ball anywhere else, a punch out is in your future.  

Par 4
Black 390
Blue 380
White 357
Gold 302
Red 296
Handicap: 7

Hole 14
One of the hardest par 4's in Southern Illinois.  Good tee shot will set up a long iron or fairway wood to the green.

Par 4/5
Black 435
Blue 425
White 416
Gold 395
Red 388
Handicap: 1

hole 14


hole 15

Hole 15
Hit the ball out of the chute into the fairway and avoid the OB right.  You will then have an approach downhill to a small, well protected green.

Par 4
Black 414
Blue 404
White 381
Gold 315
Red 308
Handicap: 3

Hole 16
Length of tee selected determines the hole's difficulty -- 100 - 215 yards all carry over water!
