The first hole is a dog-leg right, par 4. Off the tee, players must deal with the driving range on the right and a number of bunkers on the left that catch those who pull their tee shot. Three wood is certainly enough club off the tee to set up a wedge to mid-iron approach shot. Be sure to gauge your club selection for the downhill approach. Bunkers on either side and out of bounds long, protect the two-tiered green.
The 2nd hole is the first of the three par 5's. Heavy rough and out of bounds guard the left side of the fairway, while a large bunker protects the right. Try to play up the right side of the fairway in order to take additional bunkers out of play. Guard against going too far right as heavy rough and grass bunkers may result in a tough approach shot. The green is extremely deep with a low area in the middle, and protected by bunkers left and right.
Depending on which tees you play, the third can be an easy birdie or a welcoming par. The first of the par 3's has out of bounds left that makes your tee shot very important. Bunkers surround the green on all sides and the multiple tiered green can have some tricky pin placements so hitting the right section of green is critical to give yourself a chance at the putt.
A drive to the left centre of the fairway will leave the best angle for approach to the green. A shot too far left leaves a blind second shot out of deep rough. The green is well protected with a large bunker front left, and smaller ones to the right and in behind. A large tier separates the back left portion of the green.
The tee shot on Number 5 is straight forward. A large landing area and wind most commonly at your back makes driver a good choice. Bunkers do protect either side however so don't get too comfortable. The green has a sever slope from back left to the front right with a flat tier at the back and is protected by several bunkers. Most approach shots will filter into the front right corner. Try your best to leave yourself below the hole as putting is quite tricky on this tough green.
A character building par three that usually requires a long iron or wood off the tee. Out of bounds and rough guard the left side, while water awaites miss hits right. If you carry the water you may not be out of trouble yet as a large bunker runs front to back along the right side of the green. The large green has a knob in the front left portion and a large ridge in the back right. Both of these features can make for a challenging putt.
Number 7 is a difficult driving hole, with bush and out of bounds on the left, and high trees to the right. In addition, players face a 150 - 180 yard forced carry, over water, from the tee. Traps on the left are reachable, which will result in a difficult fairway bunker shot. The green is will protected by bunkers, and its four tiers can cause many putting headaches.
Number 8 is another difficult driving hole with mounds, deep fescue and a grove of trees guarding the left side of the fairway. A tee shot that is too far right however creates a long second shot out of the thick rough or fairway bunker. Be careful not to go too long off the tee as the pond is certainly reachable. The approach shot must guard against going too far right to avoid the water hazard also. Bunkers guard the front, left and right sides of the green that is separated by a dip running left to right across the middle portion.
Number 9 is the longest of the par 4's on the front side, which plays up hill and often into the wind. The tee shot requires both distance and accuracy off the tee. Large trees and a pond guard the right side of the fairway, while a large fairway bunker and fescue defend the left. Closer to the green a moon bunker on the right catches many errant approaches. The green is well protected by pot bunkers on the left that also create a very narrow access to the front edge. Three distinct sections make for tricky putts on this green.
Number 10 is a reachable par 5 and makes for a good scoring oppurtunity. Out of bounds to the left and large trees lining the right side outline a genorous landing area. After the tee shot it's decision time, go for the green or set up for a short iron approach. Marsh, trees and heavy rough on the right can catch an errant second shot if you're nor careful. When laying up to this green, the approach will be up hill but not usually more than a short iron in. The green is protected by a pot bunker and slopes severely from the back to the front, with a knoll in the middle.
This long, dog-leg left par four has bunkers and deep fescue on both sides of the fairway. A drive to the left centre of the fairway shortens the hole considerably. A very large trap to the front left of the green is difficult to see on the approach shot. The large green is well protected by bunkers an is divided by a large hump on the right side.
Another dog-leg left, Number 12 requires a drive to the left centre of the fairway to shorten the approach. Too far left however, could result in hitting heavy rough or out of bounds. Bunkers on the right and heavy rough pose hazard for longer drives. An elevated green is well guarded with bunkers, trees left and heavy rough. Beware of out of bounds directly behind the green.
Number 13 is the longest par 4 on the course and by far the most challenging. The tee shot requires avoiding the lateral hazard left and the grove of trees to the right off the tee. The right side is guarded by grass mounds and a large bunker with brush and out of bounds protects to the left as you get closer to the green. The green it self is well protected by bunkers on the left and rough to the right, making a back left pin placement particularly difficult. Course management plays a big roll in avoiding a big number. Par is an excellent score here.
This short but challenging par four is protected by dense trees to the right and fairway bunkers to the left. Driver may not be the right play here as going through the fairway usually results in being blocked out from the green by trees. A mid to short iron into the green rewards golfers who hit the middle of the fairway. Bunkers left and right guard a narrow opening to a long two-tiered green. Two controlled shots can leave a great chance for a birdie!
The elevated tees on Number 15 highlight this well bunkered green. A pot bunker guards a front right pin placement and heavy rough to the right usually results in a lost ball while a large bunker raps to the left. Try to avoid chasing the pin here. A well placed mid to short iron to the middle of the green is the right play for an easy par.
Number 16 is a par five that requires three controlled shots. The tee shot must stay to the right to avoid bunkers and the reachable water hazard on the left. The second shot, into the wide fairway sets up a narrow approach shot to a long two-tiered green. If your second shot is too far right you may find bunkers and thick rough. A grove of trees to the right of the green and thick rough penalize errant approach shots. While this hole can give an oppurtunity for birdie, par is still a good score.
Number 17 is a very challenging par three protected by trees down both sides with out of bounds to the left. While this par 3 is quite long the down hill approach and wind direction will dictate club selection anywhere from a wood to a mid iron. The two-tiered green is protected on three sides by bunkers and long by out of bounds. Again a well-placed tee shot to the middle of the green is the objective here for a tough par.
The finishing hole at West Haven is a short, but by no means easy par 4. On this dog leg left, par 4, a tee-shot to the left centre of the fairway will shorten the approach but if it is too far left it will get caught in a group of grass bunkers. A fairway wood off the tee may be the safe choice to avoid the bunkers through the fairway. Bunkers and trees protect the right side. The approach shot is to a well protected, two-tiered green. A bunker and rough to the left and water in front and to the right make for a difficult approach shot. Hitting the green is only half the battle here as the green itself can make for some tricky breaks and quick putts. Birdies are nice but a par here is an excellent finish to any round.
