Hole # 1
This is a great opening hole, 109 yards from the white tee's. The green is slightly undulating and slants from back to front. The smart play here is to take a little less club and find the green; you do not want to be long on this hole.
Hole # 2
Hole number two plays uphill to an elevated green. It is a testy short hole that plays 109 yards from the white tees's. The hole is framed off the tee with a hickory tree on the right and a post oak tree on the left. You do not want to be short on your tee shot as the approach to this green slants from back to front.
Hole # 3
This is definitely the hardest hole on the course. Hole number 3 is 197 yards from the white tee's. It will take a long and straight tee shot to find this small and testy green. There is a fairway bunker on the left side an out of bounds to the right and left. A par on this hole will be a very difficult task.
Hole # 4
This picturesque 123-yard downhill hole plays to a large undulating green. A shot to the center of the green is a smart play to avoid the pond on the right side of the green. Do not go long on this hole, as that would make for a very difficult par.
Hole # 5
Hole number 5 is the signature hole on the Lake St. Louis track. The 157-yard hole plays over a pond from an elevated tee. Club selection is important on this hole with a bunker guarding the left side of the green, and three big pin oaks on the right side of the fairway. The green is large, but mostly flat, so if your tee shot reaches the green, a par would seem likely.
Hole # 6
The sixth hole is a straightforward 102-yard hole that plays to a slightly elevated green. At first a glance, this hole looks like a great opportunity to make a birdie. There is out of bounds to the left and right, but no bunker on this hole. The smart play is to keep the ball to the right side of the green.
Hole # 7
This 121-yard hole demands distance control and accuracy. A large bunker guards the entire front of the green. your tee shot must clear the bunker but also has to stay on the green. The green is very wide, but narrow, and drops off on the front and the back. A par on this hole is a good score.
Hole # 8
Hole 8 is a challenging 150-yard par three. the tee shot must avoid the fairway bunker on the right side, and out of bounds to the left. The green is slightly undulating and can be a challenge depending on the pin placement. Be sure to take enough club here, as this hole seems to play longer than it looks.
Hole # 9
Hole 9 is a great finishing hole. This 142-yard hole plays uphill to a wide, narrow, and elevated green. There is a fairway bunker on the right side of the fairway, and out of the bounds to the left. A large pin oak tree to the left of the green can be a real obstacle for reaching the green in one. If your tee shot can find the green, the chances for a par should be good.
