HOLE TO REMEMBER: The 18th is one of the most intimidating par 5s in the area. The dogleg left is 600 yards from the back tees and wraps around a lake from tee to green. The third shot is to a green that slopes toward the water.

UNFORGETTABLE: The redesign of the 310-yard 15th, necessitated by development, brings water into play on the approach shot to a narrow green.

DID YOU KNOW?: Scenic course is noted for its lakes, maples, oaks, palms and rolling terrain.
