Hole 1 – Par 4 H’cap 17
Looks can be intimidating. This one is just a driver and short iron, but avoid going over the green.
Hole 2 – Par 4 H’cap 9
Fairway bunkers lay in wait. Avoid these and this short par four may leave a birdie attempt on this undulating green.
Hole 3 – Par 5 H’cap 5
Pick a spot just right of the mound and fire over it. A good drive makes this the easiest par 5 at Twin Lakes.
Hole 4 – Par 4 H’cap 13
Crosswinds near the green are hard to judge from the tee. Going over makes it difficult to get up and down to save par.
Hole 5 – Par 5 H’cap 1
The most difficult hole at Twin Lakes, par is a good score. Trouble lies over the hill out of view, making accurate tee shots a must.
Hole 6 – Par 4 H’cap 7
The fairway bunker makes a good target for back tees, although front tee players may want to use a long iron to set up a short approach.
Hole 7 – Par 3 H’cap 15
This one plays a little uphill and usually into the wind. An extra club is often needed.
Hole 8 – Par 5 H’cap 3
A good drive forces a decision to go for it or lay up. Keep to the right side if laying up to avoid overhanging trees at the 100 yard mark.
Hole 9 – Par 3 H’cap 11
This tough par 3 yields few birdies. Aim for the left side of the green and shoot for par.
Hole 10 – Par 4 H’cap 16
Water comes into play at the bottom of the hill, but you will want to be near it to avoid a downhill lie. Good birdie opportunity.
Hole 11 – Par 3 H’cap 14
Club selection is a must! Most players will use a different club for each tier. Poor distance control is usually penalized by three and four putts.
Hole 12 – Par 4 H’cap 8
Avoid the fairway bunker, although most big hitters will be able to take it out with a good drive. Not much room left or right for error.
Hole 13 – Par 5 H’cap 2
Once again, fairway bunkers make this a tough tee shot. A good short game is going to set up the birdie here. The green and its bunkers make this a true challenge.
Hole 14 – Par 3 H’cap 18
Water is there, though you may not see it. Choose the right distance club and you will have a wide green to work with. Unseen crosswinds are usually present near the green.
Hole 15 – Par 5 H’cap 4
Three hidden bunkers. Most players will choose to lay up, but note that the fairway starts running downhill towards the water at the 175 yard mark.
Hole 16 – Par 4 H’cap 12
A straight drive is a must from any tee box on this hole. If you find yourself in the fairway you may have a shot at birdie.
Hole 17 – Par 4 H’cap 6
Water to the left and out of bounds to the right. With the gold tee location and prevailing south winds, this proves to be a true challenge for par. The large landing area is ideal for everyone.
Hole 18 – Par 4 H’cap 10
Last, but certainly not least. Get your drive as close as possible to the bottom of the hill for a flatter lie. Coming up short on your second shot means you get to try again. No bail out here!
