Course Scorecard
Course Map
Hole 1 - Charging Bull
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 399

Your journey begins with this dogleg right hole that requires an accurate tee shot. A variety of clubs can be used, leaving a short iron approach to an undulating green. Beware of the deep front and back traps that could get your day off to a rough start. It is imperative that your approach is placed on the correct level. This is your best opportunity at a birdie on the opening five holes.

Hole 1
Hole 2 - Cypress Chute
Hole Information
    1. Par: 3

    2. Yards: 206

This hole requires a long and accurate tee shot into a deep and narrow green. Good club selection is essential and could range from a driver to a pitching wedge. Once you are on the green, you are not assured a two putt.

Hole 2
Hole 3 - Lake Blanche Monster
Hole Information
    1. Par: 5

    2. Yards: 574

The longest hole on the golf course plays at 628 yards from the Tiger tee. After hitting a good drive, you are required to hit an exceptionally accurate second shot onto a narrow fairway. The landing of your second shot is guarded by a series of fairway traps that line the right side. You now are faced with an approach shot hit to an elevated green that is well protected by a bunker on the front and left of green. Distance control is a must here. With an accurate approach, birdie is definitely a possibility.

Hole 3
Hole 4 - Hurricane Bend
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 479

The fourth hole is a 479-yard, dogleg-left par-4. It requires an accurate tee shot to avoid the large fairway bunkers left and strategically placed bunker on the right. Expect the approach shot to be a long one. There are two large greenside bunkers, one left and one right. These bunkers guard a large green so distance control is of the essence.

Hole 4
Hole 5 - Swale of Sin
Hole Information
    1. Par: 3

    2. Yards: 230

Your tee shot is met by a wide green with a treacherous false front that rejects the weakly struck ball. Should you miss the green with your tee shot, bogey is a likely score.

Hole 5
Hole 6 - The Ledge
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 411

This hole gets its name from the green, which is elevated high above the fairway. Not only are there a series of fairway bunkers guarding the left side, O.B. lines the right. The approach shot is also very tricky. Take one extra club to compensate for the elevation change and the numerous bunkers surrounding the green.

Hole 6
Hole 7 - Champions Point
Hole Information
    1. Par: 5

    2. Yards: 573

No. 7 is the second par-5 on the front, measuring 573 yards. A long, straight tee shot is required as bunkers line the right and left side of the fairway, with Lake Bessie also running along the right side. With an aggressive tee shot, there is potential to reach this green in two. Birdie is a must here as you approach the difficult eighth and ninth holes.

Hole 7
Hole 8 - Best of Bessie
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 448

This dogleg-right par-4 has three large fairway bunkers. An aggressive tee shot might not carry that third bunker, so favor the left side. This has a very large green giving opportunity for many different hole locations to confuse the best putters.

Hole 8
Hole 9 - Around the Lake
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 443

No. 9 is a dogleg left around Lake Chase, giving the hole its name. An accurate tee shot must favor the right side of the fairway. Your approach lie will be slightly slanted with the ball above your feet, hitting a shot to a green protected with bunkers on the left and mounds on the right. Be weary of a difficult prevailing wind coming off the lake. After finishing the ninth, take a deep breath as you have just completed one of the most difficult outward nines in golf today.

Hole 9
Hole 10 - Homeward Bound
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 409

This dogleg left has a mass of fairway bunkers protecting the left side for those aggressive hitters. Your second shot must be cautiously executive as the elevated green is very narrow and is guarded by bunkers left and right. Add a false front right side and you can see why the shot is so difficult.

Hole 10
Hole 11 - Eagle Pond
Hole Information
    1. Par: 3

    2. Yards: 194

One of the signature holes at Isleworth. This medium length par-3 is known for its thousands of annual flowers that are chosen periodically to add color and beauty to the hole.

Hole 11
Hole 12 - Up and Over
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 438

This difficult hole starts with a blind tee shot that has to be fit between two large oak trees. The approach is a downhill sweep from right to left. Usually an 8, 9 or wedge will carry you over the water to a green that slopes severely from right to left toward the water. The approach shot's only bail-out area is right of the green, and par is tough from there.

Hole 12
Hole 13 - Hourglass Lake
Hole Information
    1. Par: 5

    2. Yards: 532

The shortest of the par 5s measuring 558 yards. With a long tee shot you can make this green in two. Be careful with that approach because of the large two tier green with severe run offs to the left and right. Great opportunity to pick up a birdie, but if you get careless around the green double bogey lurks.

Hole 13
Hole 14 - Thread the Needle
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 392

An accurate tee shot is required with a straight and narrow fairway. The approach needs to favor the right side of the green because of the large false front on the left. Once on the green, getting in with two putts is a great accomplishment.

Hole 14
Hole 15 - Aim and Fire
Hole Information
    1. Par: 3

    2. Yards: 223

This is a long par-3 that plays uphill with bunkers everywhere. The green is large, so distance and accuracy is crucial. Miss this green and expect to lose at least one shot.

Hole 15
Hole 16 - Favors the Brave
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 349

Measuring 349 yards from the Tiger tee, the 16th is the ultimate dare for the long-ball hitter. This hole has fairway bunkers on each side which come into play for those who wish to lay up. If you do try to drive the green, beware of the front-left bunker. If you can handle that, hitting the green is still a challenge. The 16th is the smallest green on the course with swales on the right side and behind.

Hole 16
Hole 17 - Most Feared
Hole Information
    1. Par: 5

    2. Yards: 590

The last par-5 is a dogleg left. The tee shot must be accurate to set you in position to carry your approach shot over three large bunkers crossing the fairway. The bunker on the right is closest, but is hugged by a lateral hazard running to the green and makes you second-guess to favor the right side of the fairway approach shot. The other two bunkers angle to a further distance, so if your shot is not high and long, you might end up in one. The third shot is just a wedge in, but if you're lucky, it's a light pitch shot to this elevated green that has a bunker on the front right and a 20-foot run-off on the left side.

Hole 17
Hole 18 - Long Way Home
Hole Information
    1. Par: 4

    2. Yards: 464

The second-longest par-4 on the course measuring 477 yards is a dogleg right. You have a lateral hazard running the entire length plus large fairway bunkers protecting the right side of the fairway. Your tee shot must be accurate off the tee. If you miss right, you will be in trouble in the bunkers. Miss left, and you are hitting a very long iron or wood into a narrow green.

Hole 18
