Squaw Creek Golf Course Hole 1

Par 4

Hole 1

This opening hole is a slight dogleg right par 4. Beware of the creek that meanders along the fairway. Long hitters should consider a long iron or fairway wood off the tee. The approach plays slightly longer than the yardage to a flat green.

Deceptive. This dogleg left par 4 puts a premium on accuracy. After finding the fairway, you will have a short iron into the green, which slopes severely from left to right. Two well played shots should leave you with a good birdie opportunity.

Hole 3

A visually appealing par 3 can play a lot tougher than it looks. Hitting the middle of this large undulating green will leave you with the easiest opportunity to make a 3. Beware of the bunkers surrounding the green.

Hole 4

This is the best scoring opportunity on the front nine. Find the fairway on this short par 5 and you could be putting for an eagle. If you must lay-up, be sure to do so on the left side, while avoiding the fairway bunkers. This green slopes extremely from back to front.

Hole 5

Don’t let her yardage fool you on this short dogleg right, par 4. Attempting to hit driver off the tee could result in an ugly score. Play it safe with a long iron or a fairway wood leaving yourself a short approach shot which could be rewarded with birdie!

Hole 6

The hardest of Squaw Creek’s par 3’s demands precision. Be cautious… if you miss this green left, your ball could find a watery grave in a lake that cannot be seen from the tee. This challenging green slopes from back to front. Par here is always a great score.

Par 4

Hole 7

This is a short, risk-reward par 4. Long hitters can get close to this green in one. However, a wayward tee shot could make this relatively easy hole, difficult. The safe play is a long iron or fairway wood up the right side. This will leave you a short iron into this very tricky green.

Hole 8

This long, uphill par 4 can often derail a good round. Hitting your best drive of the day will help you to reach this green in two. Position A is up the left side of this dogleg right, your approach shot will play into a prevailing wind. Using one extra club is advised. Making 4 here is a bonus.

Par 4

Hole 9

With fairway bunkers up the left side, this is one of the longer par 4’s on the front nine. A downhill approach shot plays a little short to a green that slopes from front to back. Make a 4 on this front nine finisher and you did well.

Par 5

Hole 11

The first of three difficult par 5s on the back nine. This slight dogleg left hole is best played with a tee shot up the right-center of the fairway, avoiding the bunker. A well placed lay-up shot will leave you with a downhill approach to a green that is guarded by obstacles to your front and left. Par here is an excellent score.

Par 4

Hole 12

Don’t be fooled by the yardage of this short par 4! This may be the most demanding tee shot on the golf course. It must be worked from right to left, but be aware of the creek crossing the fairway and continuing up the left side. This green is extremely difficult because it slopes severely. Players must keep the ball below the hole. Two putts here are fantastic.

Hole 13

This medium length par three is guarded by a creek in front, bunkers, and exotic animals. After knocking your mid iron into the center of this very large green enjoy the view of giraffes, llamas, and many other animals to the right of the tee box. If you miss this green right you will be in a “jungle.”

Par 5

Hole 14

This short par 5’s tee shot is extremely narrow with O.B. to the right. The ideal shot is left to right. Long hitters can give this green a run in two. However, missing left or right could spell disaster. Laying up will leave you a simple shot to a flat green guarded by two fronting bunkers. Let’s get a birdie here.

Par 4

Hole 15

This demanding dogleg right par 4 commands a well struck tee shot that should be worked from left to right. Longer hitters can attempt to cut the corner by going over the trees. Finding the fairway is the real challenge here. Once you get on the green, it is fairly flat and unguarded.

Par 4

Hole 16

The ideal tee shot on this dogleg left par 4 is up the right side of the fairway. Players have the option of hitting driver close to this green. This option, however, leaves a tricky pitch shot to a green guarded by two deep bunkers. The more prudent play is laying back about 220 yards off the tee which will leave a full shot into the green. Two good shots and a flat putt at birdie is your reward.

Par 5

Hole 17

The last par 5 at Squaw Creek can be the toughest. Be sure to avoid O.B. right off the tee. The layup area on this hole is rather generous. Two good shots in the center of the fairway leaves a mid to short iron approach to a very complex green. Any approach shot that lands on the front portion of this green will spin back into the fairway. A 5 is good here any day.

Hole 18

Our finishing hole at squaw Creek is a medium length par 3. Your tee shot must carry water and avoid the trap to the right. Simply hitting this green is not good enough. This very large, 2 tiered putting surface can leave you with some extremely difficult putts. Make par, shake hands and come inside for an excellent meal in our grille room.
