Hole 1 – Rustic Oaks
Favor the right side on this starting hole. There is generous fairway on the right supported by a forgiving slope.
Hole 2 – Pokegama
A well hit drive gives you the opportunity to go for the green and have an eagle putt on this Par 5. Be aware of the water on the right for your second shot.
Hole 3 – Fawns Run
Downhill Par 3. Green slopes to the left. Shots hit to the left side of this green usually roll off the green.
Hole 4 – Whitetail Bend
Decision time. A well struck high wood shot can get to this green over the trees. Straight long shots can be blocked by the 2 pines or need to fly the bunker.
Hole 5 – Jackpine Valley
A straight forward Par 4 that rewards a long tee shot. This green is very large so be aware of the pin location.
Hole 6 – Wild Mushroom
A challenging uphill Par 3 with a green that slopes left to right. Add 1 club to get up the hill.
Hole 7 – Sweet Fern
An innocent looking Par 4 that requires an exact tee shot. OB 230 yards on the left. Dogleg forces some to go too far right into the trees off the tee.
Hole 8 – Namekagon
A tought Par 4 demanding a slight draw for great location. Smaller green that demands a high soft shot to hold.
Hole 9 – The Bear
Our longest Par 5 that lets you rip a couple shots. Be aware of a large green that slopes away from you on approach.
Hole 10 – Sand Dunes
A well hit driver will put you close to this green. Look out for a big sand waste bunker right and big pines on the left.
Hole 11 – Horseshoe Bend
A draw off this tee is a must for good location. Your second shot plays longer than it looks to fly the water.
Hole 12 – Eagle Pines
This Par 5 is a great eagle opportunity but demands 2 excellent long shots. The elevated green is tough to hold if you fly a shot to it. The two pot bunkers collect their share of balls.
Hole 13 – Augusta
Club selection is important to this large Augusta like green. Once on the green you must deal with many severe slopes on the green.
Hole 14 – Gitchigummi
This long Par 4 with water plays as our toughest hole. It demands a long slightly left to right tee shot and usually a long iron second shot over the water to a very large green. The legend lives on.
Hole 15 – Woodtick
Be careful to hit a very straight or slight draw tee shot to stay out of the woods on this narrow short Par 4. Green with bunkers is very elevated so club selection is important to get on.
Hole 16 – Horsefly
Club selection important to this very large undulating Par 3 green. Once on the green you could have a tough breaking putt.
Hole 17 – Wild Turkey
A straight tee ball is best as the trees on the right can block you out. This kidney shaped green is tiered and demands a great shot to get close to the pin.
Hole 18 – Norway Pines
Depending on the tee location this hole demands a fade tee shot and draw second shot for an eagle opportunity. The water next to the green ends a lot of eagle and birdie seekers.
