The Tee Shot

The perfect start, straight away. A fairway wood or long iron is the proper club selection as you get started. Avoid the temptation of “Bombs Away” and hitting into the well placed bunkers on both sides of the fairways. An excellent opportunity for birdie to start the day.

The Approach

Shot A well executed tee shot should leave you with nothing more than a wedge into the green. 

The Putting Surface

The green favors a right to left putt with a slight swale in the left center.

The Tee Shot

Club selection is important on this elevated Par 3 as you want to avoid the native area and bunker that run up the left side of this hole. Pick out your target on the green and trust your swing and you will have a good chance for par.

The Putting Surface

The pin placement is key as there is a ridge that adulates the green right in the center. You want to keep the ball below the hole as you make your putt uphill on either the front or back part of the green.

The Tee Shot

The first par five on the front is very reachable in two shots. The tee shot is key to your success as the fairway slopes from right to left Aim at Red Rock Mountain and avoid pulling your tee shot left as a waste bunker runs down the left side of the fairway. The second shot should be played left beyond the cart path as water runs up the right side.

The Approach

Should you choose to go for the green in two, come in from the left side as the water protects the green on the right. Try to aim for the front part of the green as the hole will funnel down and right towards the water.

The Putting Surface

The green has a swell in the center and slopes towards the water and plays left to right. The subtle break from left to right will test your skill at any level.

The Tee Shot

The first of many “risk versus reward” holes. Big Hitters will be inclined to take driver off of the tee and go for the green, while the ideal play would be and Iron or Fairway wood off of the tee to the left side of the fairway. Birdie is very realistic on this hole.

The Approach

Depending on your tee shot selection, the approach is to be aggressive with a wedge and attack the pin coming in from the left side.

The Putting Surface

The green runs from back to front so you want to land your second shot below the pin to take advantage of an uphill putt.

The Tee Shot

This hole requires one of the more challenging tee shots. Avoid the water that is on the right side by playing your tee shot to the left center of the fairway. However you don’t want to play your shot too far left as a bunker lurks.

The Approach

This is the first elevated green so you may want to go up one club to get the extra distance to the pin. A back right pin placement will require a well executed shot.

The Putting Surface

This elevated green can be very deceiving as it plays from back to front and has a ridge that makes putts break from left to right. A deft touch is required.

The Tee Shot

Big Hitters have an advantage on this hole as you can go “Bombs Away” and aim over the bunker on the left side of the fairway as the hole slopes down to the middle of the fairway. However if you are not a “Bombardier” you can still aim at the Duffers Billboard and play a shot down the center and be in position for a reasonable approach.

The Approach

The best approach is to hit to the right side of the green and let the ridge take the ball to the left. The green’s adulation will make a straight on putt very hard to achieve.

The Putting Surface

This green is unique as almost every position that you can imagine the pin to be in will require you to putt with some form of “break” to make it in the hole. A delicate putting stroke is a must.

The Tee Shot

The second Par 5 on the front is a test of patience and accuracy as you will need both to navigate this deceptive hole. A conservative shot off of the tee offers you an excellent chance at a classic lay up as you use your imagination to figure out the best approach to the water protected green.

The Approach Shot

Going for the green in two shots is not recommended as there is a bunker on the left and water on the right of the narrow opening to the green. A well placed shot on the left side of the fairway offers you an excellent approach with a clear line of sight for your third shot on to the green.

The Putting Surface

Depending on the pin location, this green will have you wondering what Pete Dye was “thinking” when he designed this green as it has a “dip” in the center making any front to back putts nearly impossible. A proper approach shot is imperative.

The Tee Shot

While the look of the hole is relatively easy, don’t be fooled as the green is a multi-tiered. Proper club selection is a must as water is lurking to the right and behind while two sand bunkers guard both sides. Play it safe and aim for the center of the green.

The Putting Surface

A three-tiered green offer a variety of possibilities for pin placements and challenges for unsuspecting golfers. Make sure that you take note of the many breaks and putt accordingly.

The Tee Shot

This is one of your best chances of being able to “grip and rip” on this long Par Four. Aim towards the right side of the fairway however don’t over compensate as a waste bunker runs along the whole right side leading to the water. Your alignment off the tee is key in hitting it in the right direction.

The Approach Shot

The whole approach depends on your tee shot. A long iron is usually the play and you want to keep the ball left as water guards the green on the right side. Should you have a mid or low iron to the green, take advantage and go “pin hunting”.

The Putting Surface

Any shot on this green is pretty safe as it is relatively flat and what you see is what you get. After what it took to get here, it is actually a relief to walk away with par.

The Tee Shot

The ideal shot on this back opening Par Four is down the right side of the fairway and avoiding the bunker waiting for you on the left side. The key to a birdie opportunity is making sure that you have a opportunity to see the pin placement from your tee shot.

The Approach Shot

Although this is a relatively short par four, it is by no means a “gimmie” birdie as the green is one of the most difficult the course has to offer. A wedge should be the club and you want to make sure that you have enough “loft” to “drop” it onto the green.

The Putting Surface

This green has a “crown” which causes the ball to roll in a variety of directions. Depending on the pin placement, you can go from “birdie” to “bogey” in the blink of an eye. A deft putting touch is a must to avoid the dreaded “Three Putt”.

The Tee Shot

This short par three offers an excellent chance of making birdie, however club selection is very important as the bunker in the front of the green gives you a “blind” tee shot and a false sense of security.

The Putting Surface

Here is your chance to be a hero. The green plays from back to front so a uphill putt is great opportunity to roll in a birdie.

The Tee Shot

Accuracy is definitely a requirement on this hole as success is dictated by placement of the tee shot. Set your alignment at the Royal Links Billboard and take aim to the right side of the fairway to maximize the best look into the sprawling green.

The Approach Shot

The best approach is coming in from the right side to the center of the green. Make sure that you have your yardage correct as the landing surface is large and tends to run from left to right. You don’t want to come up short on this green as it will funnel back to the fairway.

The Putting Surface

This large putting surface offers you an opportunity to be “creative” if you find yourself facing a long putt. Use the ridge on the left side to your advantage as it will give your ball “directions” to the hole.

The Tee Shot

The only par five on the backside offers you an excellent chance to “pick up a shot” and make birdie. Long Ball Hitters will take comfort in the fact that they can aim for the right side of the fairway and the ball will slope towards the center giving them a opportunity to reach the green in two. Those who are not as long can still use the same thought process and “shoot a dart” at the green with pin point placement on the lay up shot.

The Approach Shot

You want to stay right in the fairway as you make your approach to this very receptive green. If you go for the green in two, there is no real trouble if you keep the ball right. If you decide to lay up keep it “right & tight” and you’ll have a wedge into the green for a great birdie look.

The Putting Surface

Don’t be misled; this green is not as easy as it looks. The crest in the back offers a slope either to the front or back of the green depending on where you land. Make sure you get your “correct caddie read” before you putt.

The Tee Shot

Just as the name implies, this hole offers you the best opportunity to “Go for the Green” with no real penalty if you go astray. Alignment is critical if you do go for the green as the hole is slightly on a dogleg left. For those not as bold, an easy long iron off of the tee to the center of the fairway works just as well.

The Approach Shot

This hole offers another excellent look at birdie as you should have no more than a Pitching Wedge into a forgiving green. Take dead aim at the pin and “fire” away.

The Putting Surface

The angle of this green slopes from front to back with ample landing area from all angles. Take advantage of the opportunity and don’t leave your birdie putt short.

The Tee Shot

A testy and strategic par 4. The key is avoiding the water that runs up the right side of the fairway, yet not going to deep with your tee shot into the bunker that is waiting on the left side. A well placed wood off of the tee is the proper club selection down the the left side of the fairway for the best result.

The Approach Shot

The key is hitting the front part of the green and letting the ball roll. Hitting a deep shot will result in your ball rolling right off of the green as the slope from front to back is extremely steep. Paying close attention to pin placement is very important.

The Putting Surface 

This difficult, undulating green offers a stern test of your putting abilities. The green slopes from front to back and it’s best to be below the pin to have any chance of making birdie.

The Tee Shot

Proper club selection is the most important factor on this par 3. Pick out your target on the green, trust your swing, and take aim. Make sure that you have your feet aligned with the hole to hit it in the right direction.

The Putting Surface

Landing on the middle of the green will give you the best opportunity at birdie no matter where the pin is placed. If you hit it short, a 3 putt is a distinctive possibility.

The Tee Shot

As you look at the backdrop of downtown Las Vegas, imagine hitting a nice fade down the right side of the fairway. By keeping the ball on the right side of the fairway, you will have the best opportunity of hitting a good shot unto the green.

The Approach Shot

This large green is protected by water on the right side and in the back, so take aim at the large center and let the swale take your ball left to right.

The Putting Surface

The putting surface is different on this hole in the fact that instead of going towards the water, it goes away from the water. Make sure to watch the swale that cuts across the center of the putting green to know which way the putt will break.

The Tee Shot

The last opportunity to display your driving power and ability. Avoid the waste bunker that runs down the left side to the water by hitting your tee shot to the right center of the fairway. If you are able to carry the well placed bunker your ball will funnel to the off of the right ridge to the center.

The Approach Shot

Ignore the water on your left, and the bunker on your right and take dead aim for the center of the green. Stay positive and focus on the front part of the green and allow the ball to roll. A shot that comes up short will not hurt you here.

The Putting Surface

This is your last chance to be a hero. If you successfully navigate the approach shot and are resting anywhere on the green, you will have a reasonable chance at birdie no matter where the pin is placed.
