Hole 2 - Horseshoe
With a hazard down the left side and a grove of trees on the right, this is one of the more demanding tee shots on the course. Any ball in the fairway leaves you with a second that requires a carry over a horseshoe-shaped pond. The third plays uphill to a large green that slopes back to front. Keep it below the hole here for your best chance to sink a putt.
Hole 8 - Sandy
A true risk-reward drivable par 4 for the longer hitters, the drive must avoid two strategically placed trees and well-placed greenside bunkers to have a chance. For those not going for the green, choose your line off the tee carefully to find either the upper or lower fairway. A properly placed tee shot leaves a relatively simple second. The fun starts here though, as this is one of the most undulating greens on the course. Two-putt this green for a 4 and walk to the 9th with a smile
Hole 12 - Descent
A visually stunning hole, this gem of a par 3 has an elevation change of nearly 150 feet. Pulling the right club here is the real challenge, as there is also a pond and a creek to avoid down by the putting surface. Once on the green, be cautious of putts from back to front, as balls like to race toward the water.
Hole 13 - Amen
Roxiticus’ own "Amen Corner" begins with a superb par 4 that will challenge all skill levels. With a creek looming down the left side, favor the right side of the fairway where a large hill will help guide tee shots back down to a flat lie. For shorter hitters, a pond and a creek will challenge the player on their second. A multi-tiered, well bunkered green requires an extra club on the approach and putting from the correct level is a necessity if you want to leave with a par.
Hole 14 - Serenity
Be sure to find the fairway off the tee here, as this hole gets more difficult the closer you get to the green. A true three-shot par-5 except for the longest of hitters, the second shot plays to a rolling fairway that runs toward a pond fronting the putting surface. Be sure to take enough club for your next, as any ball landing on the front third of the green will surely roll off the front, leaving a devilishly tough pitch.
Hole 15 - Chute
While longer hitters need to be aware of two hidden ponds—one on the left and one on the right side down the hill—shorter players can use the slope to get down to the flat part of the fairway. Accuracy off the tee is key here, and a ball down the hill leaves a fairly simple second to a deceptively difficult green that can be hard to read.
