Peaks Course- The par-4 5th hole is 379 yards that requires driving accuracy. There is water that comes into play off the tee on both the left and right side of the fairway. With water greenside, this hole is a great test of accuracy from tee to green.
Ranch Course- The 14th hole of the Ranch Course is a 320 yard par-4. It is a risk/reward hole in that driving over the numerous fairway bunkers yields a short chip shot to the green. The green is guarded by two large bunkers and a waterfall off to the right.
