This is a nice starting hole for your round, short in length and an accommodating green. You will not be able to see the surface of the green from the fairway, so check your pin placement chart for the day as it is a large but gentle putting surface.

This is Shiloh's signature hole. I hope you warmed up on the first hole because you will need an accurate drive placed down the right half of the fairway to set up your approach to this sloped putting green. An accurate club selection from the fairway is a must and when in doubt it is better to leave the ball below the hole on this green.

This looks like a wide open hole from the tee but it will serve you well to resist t4e temptation to let it fly on your drive. An approach from the fairway will make your job of getting the ball on the green much easier. Again check your pin placement chart because you will not be able to tell where the pin is on this green.

The correct placement of your drive on this hole is right center of the fairway. The longest hitters will be able to go for the green in two but for the average golfer a second shot lay up to the comer is suggested. This will leave you a medium-length pitch shot into a relatively flat putting surface for your birdie attempt.

This short par five can be reached in two with a couple of well-struck shots. The risk is in order to take advantage of the short length of this hole you have to place your ball correctly on the green. It is imperative that you keep your ball below the hole. If you can do that on your second shot you will have a nice eagle attempt, most golfers will be wise to set up an easy pitch shot with a well-played second shot and have a nice birdie putt.

Decision time for the golfer on this short par four hole. If your woods are straight and true hit it down the left side and have a short pitch into a long, narrow green. If you don't trust yourself to do that, take an iron ana place it down the left side of the fairway. You will still only have a short iron into the green ?ut now you will be faced with a very wide green that is not very deep, so accuracy is at a premium.

This downhill par three can be conquered with an iron shot that favors the right side of the green. Putting is the skill that will best serve you here. Being downhill and with the prevailing south wind, this hole always plays shorter than the yardage reads.

  • 163
  • 151

This beautiful par three heads right back into the prevailing wind. The green is almost four clubs deep, so make sure you know where the pin is and factor that into your club selection. This hole always seems to play longer than the yardage. The putting surface is large but fairly flat, so this is one place you might sink a long one.

PAR: 5

This par five offers a generous landing area for your drives. Once in the f.iirway off the tee, the fun begins. Your second shot is a set up for your approach. The narrow green sets 313 well above the fairway, so you will need to your second shot up where you can hit your most dependable short iron into the green. Once on the green, the putts can fall. lay

This short but tricky par four puts an emphasis on your tee shot. With a tee box that points you towards the right rough, you will need to hita club off the tee that you are able to draw your ball into the fairway with. Once there, a short iron into an exposed large flat green will make this an easy approach.

PAR: 4

DISTANCE:

  • 342
  • 330
  • 325
  • 320
This downwind par four can be boldly attacked with a wood directed down the far right side of the fairway, but you are hitting into a very narrow landing area with water just off the left of the fairway. A more sensible approach is to hit an iron down the left side of the fairway short of the water hazard leaving you with a medium iron into a sloping, deep green. Positioning of your ball is at a premium, so a ball left of the hole on the green is and advantage.

This postcard-pretty par three looks innocent but can be treacherous if you don't pay attention to where you place your ball on the green. The green slopes from back to front more than it looks, so take this into account when selecting your club off the tee or when pitching or chipping to the green.

PAR: 4

DISTANCE:

  • 372
  • 337
  • 270

From an elevated tee, this short par four has more room on the left side than it appears. The key to getting a par on this hole is to negotiate a green that slopes from left to right and back to front. You must keep your ball on the downward side of the pin at all costs.

PAR: 3

DISTANCE:

  • 203
  • 175
  • 149
  • 138
This deceiving par three has a slope to the left of the green that a golfer can use to their advantage off the tee. A shot hit towards the left edge of the green will serve you well. The green is deep but flat, so make sure you know where the pin is on the green when selecting yourcluboffthetee.

PAR: 5

DISTANCE:

  • 513
  • 485
  • 460

This hole offers a generous area to drive your ball into off the tee. Longer hitters will have an opportunity to go for it in two, but beware the green is sloped from right to left more than it looks and is not very deep. For those who positioned their second shot for a short iron into the green, take that into account and leave your ball to the low side of the pin for an easier putt.

PAR: 4

DISTANCE:

  • 416
  • 400
  • 365
  • 358
This challenging par four takes a well-placed drive aimed to finish on the right side of the fairway. This leaves a mid to long iron into a large elevated green. Again check your pin placement chart before choosing your club as this green is very deep.

PAR: 4

DISTANCE:

  • 408
  • 392
  • 381
  • 329
Accuracy is at a premium off this tee. A fairway wood or long iron might be suggested to keep this ball in the right half of the fairway. Anything left of center will be, found in the left rough about 15 feet below the fairway surface. The green is large and flat, so it is very accessible to a good short iron shot from the fairway.

PAR: 3

DISTANCE:

  • 185
  • 158
  • 145
  • 135
This par three finishing hole is all laid out in front of you from an elevated tee into a wide and fairly deep green sloping from right to left. It will tend to play about a half of club shorter than the yardage, but it will take a well-struck shot to clear the water fronting the green. Again, correct ball position on the green is rewarded with much easier putting.
