Hole 1 Par 4
The opening hole is a friendly 362 yard par 4.
A fairway wood or long iron are common choices for the tee shots.
A mid to short iron is all that is required for the second shot to an average size green that is open in front but guarded on the right and left by sand bunkers.
Staying below the hole is best.
Hole 2 Par 4
Number 2 is another friendly par 4. 360 yards, straight away.
Although the fairway is generous, you must still stay away from the grass bunker on the right and the sand bunker on the right.
The second shot is a short iron to the green, but beware of the right greenside sand bunker and the left greenside grass bunker.
Hole 3 Par 3
This par 3 of 183 yards requires an accurate tee shot. A stray
tee shot will find trouble to the right and long.
Keeping your tee shot straight is a must and leaving the ball
below the hole isn't a bad idea.
Hole 4 Par 4
This very short 326 yard par 4 is a simple hole when played correctly. A long iron or fairway wood should leave you inside 100 yards to the green; anything longer than 230 yards and you're wet. It's best to leave your tee shot on the left side as tall trees may block your approach from the right. On your approach shot be careful of the river and greenside bunkers.
If the pin is in the middle of the green try to leave your ball below the hole, if the pin is in the back your better off being past the pin for an easier putt.
Hole 5 Par 4
And now you have reached the #1 Handicap hole. This is a great par 4 stretching out to 406 yards from the back tees. Be careful of the river along the right hand side while trying to stay away from the pond on the left hand side.
A fairway wood or hybrid is typically a good play off the tee for control. This should leave about 175 - 200 yards in. The green slopes pretty good from front to back so make sure you leave your approach shot below the hole.
Hole 6 Par 5
This 497 yard par 5 is longer than is seems. Your tee shot is from an elevated tee to a good landing area. There are woods and out of bounds down the right side and trees along the left.
The second shot requires a long iron or fairway wood.. The well guarded green is best played to the center. Anything to the back usually runs through. Take your five and run, mission accomplished!
Hole 7 Par 3
Caution: this hole is longer than it appears.
The sign reads 169 yards, but it is all up hill and you need to carry the bunker that guards the right half of the green. Take an extra club. You should also be wary of the bunker back left of the green.
Forget about the water unless you push and/or fade your shot right.
This is another good par 4 with an undulating fairway to a relatively flat green.
The best shot will cut over the edge of trees on the left, but make it a good one; your tee shot may be your only level stance the entire hole.
Beware of the greenside grass bunkers along the right side and the back left. Approach shots are sometimes hard to hold as this green is elevated and tends to play a little firmer.
Hole 9 Par 5
New Richmond's shortest par 5, number 9 measures only 454 yards; this will be your best shot at a birdie all day.
If you hit a strong tee shot, you're left with an uphill long iron or fairway wood to an open green. There is a bunker long left and right; just stay in front and you will be okay.
There is an extra long flag pole situated behind the center of the green to assist in aiming your second shot properly.
Hole 10 Par 4
Measuring 383 yards, number 10 gives you some choices.
A strong drive over 240 yards may run down the hill for an extra 50 yards and only 110 left to the green. Then again, your ball may stop in the middle of the hill; leaving you with a down hill lie to an elevated green. Not so good.
Keep your second shot to the left. Everything around the green will bounce and roll to the right.
Hole 11 Par 5
You need to hit it big on this 527 yard par 5. The best shot will cut over the trees on the left, but again make sure you can hit it big.
The second shot is daunting. You've got water both right and left to deal with; then you've got more water short of the green towards the left hand side. If you're going to go for it, make sure you've got enough stick.
The green is very challenging. Sloping from back to front, your best be is to try to leave yourself an uphill put. Good Luck!
Hole 12 Par 3
A straight away par 3 of 165 yards.
Again on this hole, you do not want to go right of the green. The green has bunkers short right and left.
The putting surface slopes heavily from right to left ; stay below the hole!
Once you putt out, put on your hiking shoes and head through the parking lot and up a hill to #13
Hole 13 Par 4
This short severe dog leg right par 4 has ruined many rounds.
Big hitters try to cut the corner to leave a wedge to the green, but it's really not a smart play. Too many pines trees that don't seem to follow that 90% air rule.
Play it smart and hit nice 180 - 200 yard tee shot and you'll be around the 150 yard marker straight away to a fairly good sized green with greenside bunkers short left and long right.
Hole 14 Par 4
A nice wide fairway on the 14th hole invites the long hitter to swing away.
Aim at the water tower and stay a little right.
The green on 14 is severely sloped from back to front; you do not want to be above the hole!
Hole 15 Par 4
This is a tricky little hole playing 339 yards from the White Tees.
A 200 - 220 yard tee shot to the right center of the fairway leaves you with a nice little approach shot. If you hit it left and too short you may have your approach shot blocked by the pines, but on the other hand if you hit it right and too far you may get into the pines through the fairway.
Hole 16 Par 5
This is a good par 5.
Playing at 483 yards from the White Tees a 260 yard tee shot will get you just past the traps and from there you may have a chance to get home in 2.
If you plan on laying up instead of going for it, be sure to keep your second shot in the left center of the fairway as the fairway slopes to the right you may once again be blocked out by the pines.
Be careful of this green, it can be very tricky and don't give your opponent any putts.
Hole 17 Par 3
Finally, a break. This is a nice and short little par 3, but don't let it fool you.
The large green has led to many a 3-putt.
Hole 18 Par 4
Number 18 is a great finishing hole that measures 403 yards. A good tee shot can clear the bunker on the left. A great tee shot will land just right of the trap and run down the hill to the fairway.
A second shot of 130 - 170 yards is common to sloping green. Beware of a back right pin as the green runs away quickly behind the pin.
