What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
Hole #15, named 'Bully Pulpit', is a Par 3 and our signature hole. Ron Whitten of Golf Digest says "The 15th is one of the greatest par 3's I've ever played. The tee and green is separated by 100 feet of canyon below and is also the highest point on the golf course. This scenic overlook is every cameraman's dream.
What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
Hole 17 is a tricky par 5 with many ways to play. With a strip of fairway bunkers splitting two fairways the longer hitting can let 'er rip while the conservative playing can choose the left or right fairway. Your second shot is a layup to a generous fairway while going for the green in two is nearly impossible with a hidden green along Davis Creek. Watch out for an additional fairway bunker 90 short of the green and right in your layup landing area. A precise 3rd shot to a tricky green will give you a look at birdie or an easy two putt par.
This hole is my personal favorite as the tee box sits 100 feet above the fairway below. Such a great view and so many ways to play the hole.
Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
We have customers drive hundreds of miles just for a burger at the Sagebrush Grill. Top your experience off with a cold drink overlooking the venue on our patio will make the hairs on your neck stand up.
