A wide fairway and a downhill tee shot eases you into your round on the opening Par 4. The real trouble here is the large fairway bunker on the left.
This is a long par 4, the trick here is to hit it long down the left side without going in the bunkers on the left as tall pine trees narrow the approach from the right.
This is a gorgeous par 3 and one of only two holes with water in play on the Barrens. While not long, this hole is complicated by a fairly difficult green.
This beautiful and dramatic par 5 offers a risk/reward tee-shot. The options include a safe play lay-up down the left, or attempt to carry the waste area on the right if you are brave enough. The elevated green is readily reachable in two for those that walk on the daring side.
Though length is not a problem here, this Par 4's long narrow green is both sloped on its surface and surrounded by waste bunkers.
This Par 5 is reachable only with a big tee-shot down the left side. Anything from the right half requires a lay-up to play around the trees that guard the right.
A good Par 3 with a large green that changes the hole greatly depending on the cut of the pin.
Off the tee, this one seems easy enough, but danger lurks the length of the hole on the right and the approach to the undulating green requires great precision.
A lengthy dogleg right that plays tough off the tee to a fairway that slopes from the right to the left. The hole is complicated by an uphill approach to the green.
Be sure to take enough club to get to the past the false front on this undulating green.
The fairway narrows in the landing area on this Par 4 making accuracy a must off the tee.
The number one handicap hole on the Barrens. This hole offers great variety with two separate greens. The left makes a long hole even longer but offer less resistance on the approach. When the right green is utilized, the yardage is reduced, but the undulating green is both elevated guarded by waste bunkers.
A long and difficult Par 4, the best tee shot ends up on the left side of the fairway.
A great Par 5 with a variety of options. The two-tiered fairway makes available two separate routes to a two-tiered green.
Another great risk-reward hole. The fairway is split, offering a safe play down the left ending in a more difficult approach or a long carry over the chasm ending in an easy approach.
A long and difficult Par 3 that is all carry to the slightly elevated green. Any error needs to be made to the left side.
Favor the right side of the fairway on this one, but be sure to avoid the bunkers that line its length on that side..
This long dogleg left is a great finishing hole. Cut as much as you dare off the corner to ease the approach to this well guarded green.
