The 5th hole, a par-5, measuring 545 yards from the blue tees, is one of the more challenging holes. A natural arroyo bisects the fairway, tempting the average golfer to “go for it” and carry the wash, or lay-up with a mid-iron. It plays to a long two-tiered green guarded by deep bunkers on one side and a beautiful boulder outcropping on the other.


Also the 5th hole, this time a par-4 dog-leg left measuring 425 yards. This hole is both long and difficult, and like all good golf holes it is picturesque. It demands accuracy from the tee to the pin. Your landing area from the tee is a narrowing fairway with a stunning backdrop of Black Mountain on the horizon. It doesn’t let up on you there. The approach shot to the two-tiered green demands more accuracy due to bunkering, with one particularly large greenside trap.
