  • Hole #1

    Hole #1

    Off and Runnin’

    A moderate length opener. Drive it straight or with a slight fade favoring the right side. A mid to short iron should allow opportunity for birdie. Once aboard, don’t be fooled by the green’s gentle slopes and charms.

    PAR 4 – HCP 11/11

  • Hole #2

    Hole #2

    Redan

    A straight-forward, medium length par 3. The green angles away from right to left and slopes from back to front. Avoid the left green-side bunker and par or better should be yours.

    PAR 3 – HCP 17/15

  • Hole #3

    Hole #3

    Wasteland

    Prevailing winds and a firm, fast fairway shorten this hole. Rip your drive dead straight. Distance control on your short iron second shot is critical. The green features a crossing ridge which divides it into two distinct putting surfaces, front and back. Identifying the pin placement is imperative. Another birdie opportunity.

    PAR 4 – HCP 9/9

  • Hole #4

    Hole #4

    Hell’s Gate

    Two great shots can get you home but attacking this hole is not recommended, big numbers are common here. Played as a three shot hole, number 4 requires an accurate drive between water and OB followed by a mid iron lay-up to around 100-125 yards. A well executed pitch to a difficult green will give you a chance for birdie but be happy with par.

    PAR 5 – HCP 3/1

  • Hole #5

    Hole #5

    Buried Treasure

    Number 5 is a penal golf hole. A headwind will make this difficult driving hole very long. All misses must be right, especially the approach. This hole’s name comes from the green which is bisected by a huge mound extending from left to right. Par from the wrong side of the ridge is unthinkable. There are no straight putts here. Attack this hole! A par is a good score and a birdie is like “buried treasure”.

    PAR 4 – HCP 5/5

  • Hole #6

    Hole #6

    Undulations

    This par 4 has a generous landing area designed for players to jump on their tee shots. A mid iron approach finds you on one of the most unusual greens you will ever see. The “dance floor” is divided into 4 sections of different elevation. When in doubt, hit to the middle and try to 2 putt. Par is attainable but mistakes are severely punished.

    PAR 4 – HCP 7/7

  • Hole #7

    Hole #7

    Short & Sweet

    Sand, water, and a divided fairway create a wonderful strategy. Long hitters beware! Though driveable, there is plenty of trouble waiting. With luck you can card eagle. By playing smart, birdie is the target score.

    PAR 4 – HCP 13/13

  • Hole #8

    Hole #8

    Links Land

    This par 3 exemplifies the personality of Noble Hawk. Multiple tees, a large undulated green, a wooden bulkhead back drop, and native grasses which cover the extensive perimeter mounding. It’s a picture postcard from Scotland. Take dead aim. Club selection is the key to this beautiful par 3.

    PAR 3 – HCP 15/17

  • Hole #9

    Hole #9

    The Talon

    A great finishing hole to the front nine. This is the #1 handicap hole for a reason. Keep your drive left to avoid the lake which creeps in from the right. From the left side you have an excellent angle into a green that seems to go on forever. Putting challenges add to the difficulty of this hole. Par is a great score.

    PAR 4 – HCP 1/3

  • Hole #10

    Hole #10

    A New Start

    From the tee you will notice a distinct change in Noble Hawk’s personality. This short par 4 begins a stretch of beautiful tree-lined holes. Lay off the drive, distance is unimportant here. From the middle of the fairway you should have a short iron to a small, severe green. Hole placement will determine the difficulty of this hole.

    PAR 4 – HCP 16/16

  • Hole #11

    Hole #11

    The Hawk’s Cathedral

    Over a ravine and surrounded by trees, this is one of the best and prettiest par threes you will ever play. If you miss, miss short or right. Playing for the middle of the green, regardless of hole placement, will pay off. Confidence is key.

    PAR 3 – HCP 4/14

  • Hole #12

    Hole #12

    Big Lumber

    The “Big Dogs” can blast their drives over the right fairway bunker and shorten this long dogleg right. Shorter hitters must drive left for the optimum angle of approach. The green is extremely long resulting in a one or two club difference from front to back. A great opportunity to attack.

    PAR 4 – HCP 6/10

  • Hole #13

    Hole #13

    The Jugular

    A true three shot par 5. This is no place to lack confidence. Launch your drive down the right side. Choose an iron or fairway wood to carefully lay-up, again favoring the right side. Distance control is very important on your approach. You must land on the correct section of this long, narrow, three tiered green. Double bogie and worse are common. Par here feels like a birdie!

    PAR 5 – HCP 2/2

  • Hole #14

    Hole #14

    Narrow Passage

    Appropriately named, 14 is a very narrow but short par 4. The smart play is to hit an iron or fairway wood for accuracy. Allow the funneled fairway to channel your ball to the middle. You will be set-up for a short iron to a smallish green. Don’t let the green’s false front fool you. From the middle of the green you will face no more than a 15 footer to any hole placement. Do not hit over this green!

    PAR 4 – HCP 12/8

  • Hole #15

    Hole #15

    Hawk’s Challenge

    Most will fear, few will prevail, and all will respect this beast of a par 3. Noble Hawk’s signature hole features a large, undulated green that has been designed to accept well hit shots. Bailing left offers little respite. Ignore the trouble and swing with confidence. Good shots will be rewarded. A grand challenge!

    PAR 3 – HCP 14/12

  • Hole #16

    Hole #16

    Eagle’s Lair

    A reachable par 5 with two big swings. Generous landing area allows you to “grip and rip” off the tee. Lack of serious trouble around the green means go for it! Two well hit shots will earn a run at eagle, however, putting this wavy green will make your knees knock! A perfect birdie opportunity.

    PAR 5 – HCP 8/4

  • Hole #17

    Hole #17

    Rapter’s Roost

    Another medium length par three featuring a long and slender, two tiered green. Hole placement can dramatically change the length and difficulty of this hole. Avoid the sand, up-and-downs are difficult here. Well exercised play will earn a run a birdie, and you just might see the Hawk circling above!

    PAR 3 – HCP 18/18

  • Hole #18

    Hole #18

    Redtail Revenge

    Risk and Reward! A truly heroic hole. The aggressive play is to hit it down the left side flirting with the water leaving you with an iron or hybrid second shot. Long on your approach won’t hurt you so take enough club. If unsure, lay up 70 to 100 yards short. A great chance to finish your round with a red number and another bet won!

    PAR 5 – HCP 10/6
