Hole #1

The first hole is the longest par 4 on the front nine. A good score will require your opening shot to be as straight as possible. This will allow you options on how to attack the green and the pin placement on your second shot. The green is protected on the front by bunkers on both the left and the right. A birdie here will start your day off right.


Hole #2

Intimidating from the tee box, you’ll have a view of the narrow fairway shrinking from the scope of your shot. Hit straight, but not too far, or you’ll land in the bunkers or out-of-bounds. If you try to cut the corner on the right, there’s a good chance you’ll land out-of-bounds in the natural habitat. The safest play is an accurate shot to the right side of the fairway. Check the pin placement for that day as the green has a false front that returns shots hit short, and overall, its shape mirrors the fairway: narrow.


Hole #3

The third hole presents your first par 3 challenge of the day with a downhill shot to a two-tiered green that is as beautiful as it is challenging. Take in the scenic views of Central and South Orange County from the tee boxes. You can spot Anaheim Stadium and the Honda Center as well as Fashion Island and the Newport Coast highlands. Pay attention to the wind conditions as a little gust can cost you. For a chance at birdie, aim for the proper tier with the pin. A tee shot to one of the five surrounding bunkers or the wrong tier will hurt your score.


Hole #4

This hole is easier than it appears from the tee if you aim for the ample fairway and set yourself up nicely for an approach shot on the dogleg right green. Good shots tend to roll through the fairway here, so you may choose to use a club with a bit of loft to hit it from the tee. With a bunker and lateral hazard on the left side of the green, you should favor the center or right on your approach and tap in your putt.


Hole #5

You’ll quickly learn why the fifth hole is the #1 handicap on the course. With problems both left and right of the tee, take it safely down the middle and let your shot run. The elevated green is guarded by a dry creek bed in the front and bunkers on both sides. Take an extra club and be safe on this tricky green that has more breaks in it than appear. Be happy with a par here.


Hole #6

Catch a glimpse of Northeast Orange County and the Santa Ana Mountains to the right before launching your tee shot over the ravine in front of you. Keep it left of the three fairway bunkers on the right. This fairway gives good rolls and tends to kick shots from left to right. It’s uphill to the green, so you’ll definitely want to club up here. Shots have a tendency to kick from left to right by the green as well. As one of the most challenging greens to putt, the cautious play is the smart play.


Hole #7

This unforgettable hole requires you to narrow your focus to the task at hand. Don't worry about the 150-foot drop from the back tees to the fairway. Don't worry about the 180º views of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Don't worry about the checking out Downtown LA or the famous Hollywood sign in the distance. Just worry about grabbing the right club to land your tee shot short of the ravine. Don't try to carry the ravine from the tee—it's not going to happen. On your approach shot, avoid the amoeba-shaped bunker on the right. The large green is receptive to well-struck shots.


Hole #8

This long Par 3 requires a clean shot favoring the left-hand side of the green in order to stay clear of the two right bunkers. Beware the large ravine between the tees and rest of the hole. If you don’t make it, there is a drop area by the forward tees on the green side of the ravine. Shots will almost always kick off the left hillside back towards the green and wind can come into play on shots with lots of loft.


Hole #9

Another scenic beauty! The Gold Tees were inspired specifically by Payne Stewart and allow a different perspective on this challenging hole. Focus on the fairway off the tee and keep it right of the bunkers and short of the lake. You will need to negotiate the lake and large lakeside bunker here on almost all approach shots. Keep those to the right and give yourself an easy putt to finish the front nine.


Hole #10

Start the Back 9 off with a comfortable tee shot. The left side of this hole opens up, yielding a solid approach to the green. Long hitters off the tee will want to aim for the single telephone pole on the hillside in the distance and favor the center-right of the fairway. The green is downhill here, so when in doubt, play the yardage to the front edge.


Hole #11

The first par 5 on the course and one with good risk/reward. You may feel a little cramped off the tee as it gets tight and narrow here. Favor the left side of the fairway for the best angle on your approach shot or just knock it straight down the fairway. Show caution with the O.B. on both sides as errant shots never seems to reappear. An eagle attempt is possible for long hitters but watch out for the two bunkers in front and a green that slopes to the front. Come in high and tight to the pin to enjoy the reward.


Hole #12

The fairway slopes uphill towards the green, so tee shots don’t get as much roll as you might like, but that’s to be expected on the #2 handicap hole. Aim between the fairway bunkers guarding the middle of the hole—the right side plays a bit more favorably than the left does. The green is guarded by large bunkers, all on the left, so play to the right and trust that the level green will hold well-placed shots.


Hole #13

Let it rip! You’re sure to get nice extra distance with a favorable downhill roll. Only the longest hitters will face a distance challenge from the creek bed at the end of the fairway. Stay left for the best approach to this large green, but beware the large bunkers surrounding the green on the left, front, and right. Play a couple of solid shots and you’ll be putting for a birdie.


Hole #14

A signature hole that can be as challenging as it can be beautiful. Choose your hybrid or long iron off the tee for distance. It plays downhill and it’s a good idea to keep the ball below the hole. Avoid both the creek in front of the green as well as the creek on the right side, and the large lake towards the right. The green slopes from back to front, so you really want to stick it close!


Hole #15

You can tackle the second and last par 5 of the course with a driver. If anything, you’ll want to keep your shot just left of center. Lay-up to your preferred yardage before the approach shot, and then go into the green with a high shot that carries the bunkers. Longer is safer on this demanding green.


Hole #16

No need for a driver on this hole, as longer shots will find trouble with steep downhill lies and the creek guarding the greens complex. Place a solid shot into the heart of the fairway for an easy approach. The green is sloped back-to-front and right-to-left, so be sure to club up to clear both the creek ravine as well as the bunkers. Watch out for subtle breaks in the green that could cause heartache.


Hole #17

The 17th hole offers the last par 3 of the day; a hole you’ll surely enjoy as you can track your shot all the way to the pin. Try to monitor the wind that blows across the hole, but in general, a club or two less than regular distance tends to play well. The green is bigger than is looks and plays true. Take a stab at the pin and go aggressive with your birdie attempt.


Hole #18

Here’s a great hole to finish your round. On this slight dogleg left, aim for the red stoplight past the trees and through the parking lot. Fly the gorge and keep it left of the bunkers and water on the right. There is water in front, to the left, and beyond the green, along with a large bunker to the right. Play it smart and go for the heart of the green where a well-played shot will allow for an aggressive birdie attempt to conclude the day. When you’re done, reward yourself with a photograph beside the statue of Payne Stewart, situated just behind the green.
