Rating/Slope
Hole

Hole #1

Ideal placement off the tee is left of the fairway bunkers. The key to this par 5 is the second shot: as proper club selection is a must to handle the right-hand slope of the fairway. Try to place your second shot on the flat area of the fairway near the 150-yard marker. A well-protected green dictates that you play to the center on your approach.

 
X
1

Hole #2

Play smart off the tee - your downhill drive may carry through the fairway. A tee shot played to the right side will leave you with an uphill approach to a narrow, three-tiered green. Avoid the left side of the fairway in order to have a clear shot to the green.

 
X
2

Hole #3

Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Ko’olau mountain range from the tee. This is a natural dogleg right hole with trouble lining the entire right side. You may not feel it, but the second shot plays downwind. The left side of the green is the safest target to avoid the large, deep bunker on the right.

 
X
3

Hole #4

This downhill par 3 plays into the trade winds. Proper club selection to this narrow undulating green is a must.

 
X
4

Hole #5

This is a "risk/reward" hole. Safe play off the tee is to the left side of the fairway. If you're feeling strong, a drive carried over the gully on the right will leave you with a short iron to the green.

 
X
5

Hole #6

The most difficult hole on the front. Proper distance and placement off the tee on the dogleg right is critical. A drive to the left side is the smart play, as the fairway drops off quickly on the right. Hit an extra club on the second shot to carry the ravine which fronts this large two-tiered green.

 
X
6

Hole #7

Hit all you've got from the tee box to carry the ravine on this long par 5. One of the more forgiving holes on the golf course, the only trouble lies right of the green.

 
X
7

Hole #8

This downhill par 3 plays into the prevailing trade winds. Club selection is key as you hit to this long, oblique green; a single yawning bunker beckons errant balls. Take an extra club if the pin is on the green’s left side.

 
X
8

Hole #9

This challenging dogleg left is best played with a right-to-left shot. The elevated green is well-protected and loaded with undulation. Par is a great score here.

 
X
9
OUT

Hole #10

Careful with your club selection as a good position off the tee is a must. Aim at the 150-yard marker. The second shot will leave you with a short club over the ravine to the green.

 
X
10

Hole #11

The only way to reach this par 5 in two is to drive the ball on the cart path! The best play here is right off the fairway bunker. Laying up to the ravine on the second shot will leave you with a wedge to the green.

 
X
11

Hole #12

The ideal tee shot on this short par 4 is to the left side of the fairway. A well-played iron over the ravine makes a birdie a possibility.

 
X
12

Hole #13

Hit plenty of club to carry both the ravine and the pot bunker in front of the green. This hole plays against the trade winds. 

 
X
13

Hole #14

What you see is what you get! Drive the ball down the left-center of the fairway. The sizable three-tiered green is guarded by bunkers to the right and left. Take an extra club for your approach shot due to the slope.

 
X
14

Hole #15

If you've kept up the pace of play to this point, your reward is to take the high road to the back tee on this hole and enjoy the most scenic view on the golf course. (Don't forget your camera!)

 
X
15

Hole #16

Careful club selection here is a must so you don't drive the ball through the fairway on this challenging par 5. The second shot can be safely played up the right. Enormous hitters can go for the front corner of the green, but do so at your own risk.

 
X
16

Hole #17

This long downhill par 3 plays into the breeze. Shots that stray to the left will be lost in the forest.

 
X
17

Hole #18

You've made it! No. 18 is the most difficult hole on one of the most challenging courses in the nation. Two forced carries with deep bunkers around the green say it all. The farther right you aim, your tee shot will make the hole shorter but will also increase the yardage you’ll need to carry.

Rating/Slope
Hole

Hole #1

This hole is a straightaway par 4 that measures 429 yards from the blue tees. Rated as one of the toughest holes in Southern California, mid-to-high handicappers should hit a high percentage tee shot and play the hole as a short par 5. Long ball hitters should favor the left side. The ball will kick to the right, so you may want to add a half to full club for an uphill approach shot.

 
X
1

Hole #2

A dogleg left reachable hole for long hitters if the tees are up or you have the wind at your back. A right to left tee shot is ideal. Add a half-to-full club for an uphill approach shot. The green is a little faster than you think, if you are putting.

 
X
2

Hole #3

The ideal tee shot here is a driver aimed at the left greenside bunker. This gives you a flat lie and takes the right bunker out of play on the second shot. If you lay-up, leave yourself 150-160 yards to avoid a downhill lie. The green slopes severely downhill, so try to stay below the hole for an uphill putt.

 
X
3

Hole #4

This is a challenging and lengthy 584-yard par 5 that is reachable downwind in the wintertime. Be careful of the out of bounds on the second and approach shots. Long hitters try to lay-up 90-100 yards to avoid the fairway bunker left center. Subtract half a club for your approach.

 
X
4

Hole #5

Favor the right center on the tee shot. Long hitters may entertain a fairway wood off the tee. The middle and front of the green slopes downhill, so try to stay below the hole for uphill putts.

 
X
5

Hole #6

Subtract 5-10 yards for this challenging downhill par 3. Hitting the green is a must. Favor the right portion of the green. If you pull it left, it will kick left and you might end up in the outhouse.

 
X
6

Hole #7

Hole number 7, one of Knollwood’s most scenic holes, is a 380-yard par 4. Favor right center on the tee shot. Add half a club for an approach shot to well-bunkered green. If the pin is back, try to stay below the hole.

 
X
7

Hole #8

Add 5-10 yards for this uphill par 3. Favor the left side of the green to avoid the bunker. A miss to the right could hit the cart path and end up on Knollwood Drive.

 
X
8

Hole #9

A challenging par 4…known as “Cardiac Hill” to walkers. Long hitters may consider a 3 wood to take the fairway bunker and the ledge on the right out of play. Add a full club for an uphill approach shot. Favor the left on your approach shot… a miss to the right could be the beginning of a high number. The green slopes from back to front.

 
X
9
OUT

Hole #10

A very difficult, short par 4. A 200 yard lay-up is ideal. Aim to the right of the pin on the approach…the ball kicks left. It’s tough to get the ball close on the well-sloped green.

 
X
10

Hole #11

A very reachable uphill par 5. Add a half-to-full club for the approach shot. The green breaks left from below the hole.

 
X
11

Hole #12

Long hitters lay-up short of the fairway bunkers or blow it over the corner of the cart path. Add 5-10 yards to the approach shot. The large green slopes moderately from back to front.

 
X
12

Hole #13

Add a half-to-full club for this uphill par 3, which is one of the most difficult greens on the course. The ball breaks more than you think it will when putting across the green. Also, beware of the speed when you are above the hole.

 
X
13

Hole #14

A reachable par 4 for long hitters. Beware the small hazard with rocks 10 yards short of the green. A 200 yard lay-up is sufficient…. guard against fairway bunkers on the right.

 
X
14

Hole #15

A difficult dogleg left if the tees are to the left. A 3-wood or driver with a draw is the shot you want. If you are a slicer, try a 5-wood over the corner. The approach shot is downhill, so subtract some yardage… especially if you are on the left near the 150 marker.

 
X
15

Hole #16

A reachable par 5 measuring 502 yards from the blue tees. Watch fairway bunker on right side for second shot. The ball kicks to the left on approach shot. Stay below and to the left of the pin if it’s tucked right.

 
X
16

Hole #17

This short par 3 hole, measuring 126 yards from the blue tees, should be played a full club shorter than the yardage. Don’t let the short yardage fool you—you might end up in one of the eight bunkers surrounding the green.

 
X
17

Hole #18

An easy, downhill par 4 measuring 371 from the blue tees. Long hitters should hug the right side to see the pin on the approach. Don’t worry about the fairway bunker on the left, there is room long and left. The green is very deep, so pay attention to pin position. It breaks less than it appears.
