Welcome to Apple Greens.
Don’t be distracted by the stunning views on the first hole – a 340 yard par 4 with a dogleg left. Here, a slight draw is the desired tee shot. Stay clear of the bunker. This green slopes from left to right.
The second hole – a 350 yard par 4. A straight tee shot will leave you with just a short pitch to the green. This large green, without any bunkers, makes this an excellent scoring hole.
This 166 yard par 3 is well guarded, and requires an accurate short iron shot to the green.
The 4th hole, 540 yard par 5 can be intimidating, as it’s the longest hole on the front 9. Out of bounds on the left, and apple trees on the right, try and keep your tee shot in this narrow fairway. Your lay up should land you with just a short wedge to this large green. Pulled approach shots will find the green side bunker.
Hole 5 is only 138 yards. This short par 3 has an island green that requires an accurate tee shot. It’s safer to play this hole to the right side, than risk going in the hazard.
The 6th hole is a 511 yard par 5. After a straight tee shot, the hole doglegs slightly to the left. A long fairway wood can get you within pitching range of the green. Don’t miss it left, because the woods is out of bounds. Play your approach shot to the right of the green, because it slopes from right to left. Pulled approach shots will find the green side bunker down below.
The 7th hole, a 328 yard par 4. One of our easier holes to score on, it has a forgiving landing area, allowing you to let your tee shot fly. Accurate second shots to this relatively small green will allow for an easy birdie putt.
The 8th hole. This 358 yard, par 4 is a good test and great for long hitters. A short second shot to the green, will leave you with a chance for birdie.
The 9th hole. A 405 yard par 4 with a blind tee shot into this dogleg right hole. Accuracy is more important than length. Cutting the corner to the right will be the best play. Avoid the water hazard on the left, and you will make an easy par.
Welcome to the back 9. The 10th hole is Apple Greens signature hole. This challenging par 4 will require a well-placed tee shot. Your second shot will be just 150 yards to this stunning apple green. This green slopes fast from back to front.
The 11th hole is a great par 3, 185 yard straightaway with no hidden problems. A large green will make for a possible birdie opportunity.
The 12th hole, a short, wide-open, 333 yard par 4. A long drive will allow your second shot to be a short wedge into this green. Heavy slope from right to left, can make for a very difficult putt.
The 13th hole – a 349 yard par 4. Play the left side of the fairway off the tee to avoid the water hazard on the right. With your second shot around 120 yards out, be cautious of the sand bunkers protecting most of the green.
The 14th hole is a 375 yard par 4. A safe tee shot to the right side of the fairway will keep you clear of the water on the left. A mid iron to the green is needed to get over the large sand bunker. This large green will make for an easy par.
The 15th hole is 418 yards. This long but wide open par 4 can be the most difficult on the back 9. Your approach will be a downhill long iron into the green. No bunkers, but don’t overshoot the green into the woods. A par is a great score on this hole.
The 16th hole is a 498 yard par 5. After a straight tee shot, the hole doglegs slightly to the left. A lay up just over the crossing cart path leads the best angle for your approach. Your third shot into this beautiful 2-tiered green, guarded by a pond on the left, will be determined by the hole location.
The 17th hole. This easy, but long 209 yard par 3 requires an accurate tee shot to this large, flat green. Avoid the water hazard on your left and you can score.
The 18th hole – a 348 yard par 4. With the fairway sloping right to left, aim your tee shot towards the right bunker. Your approach will be an uphill shot into this well guarded green.
Welcome to the East Course at Apple Greens. The 19th hole will require an accurate 200 yard tee shot to make it through the trees and over the hazard. Taking one or even two extra clubs may be needed to reach this uphill green with a sand bunker on the right.
The 20th hole is a 375 yard par 4. Pulled tee shots will find the water hazard on your left and thick apple trees on your right. Your second shot to this small and wide open green should leave you with an easy par.
The 21st hole. This great 321 yard par 4 deserves a straight tee shot. A controlled second shot into this green can set you up for another birdie opportunity.
The 22nd hole. This strong par 4 is 422 yards. A solid left center tee shot is required for this sloping left to right fairway. A mid to long iron is needed to reach this large, beautiful green.
The 23rd hole. Don’t let the yardage deceive you on this 579 yard par 5. A very accurate tee shot is required to par this hole. Stay to the left of the fairway above the rocks. Play your second shot safe and stay short but left of the tree in the fairway. That will make for an easy third shot to this open green.
The 24th hole. This very short 280 yard par 4 is the easiest hole on the East Course. On this hole, accuracy is more important than length. A smart tee shot will leave you with a short, wet shot over the rocks to a large green.
The 25th hole, a 371 yard par 4, has a dogleg to the right. A blind tee shot should favor the right side, but too far right is out of bounds. Your second shot will be downhill with a large bunker protecting the green. If you miss it long it will be difficult to save par.
The 26th hole. This long downhill 195 yard par 3 can make clip selection difficult. A large green that slips from left to right, an accurate tee shot will help you take advantage of this hole.
The 27th hole. This 181 yard par 3 has a water hazard to the left and dense trees on your right. You can either play it safe and score a par or be aggressive and go for the birdie on this last hole.
Thanks for playing! See you next time.
