HOLE 1 PAR 5 471 / HOLE 10 PAR 5 471
The first hole is an uphill par 5 with the fairway starting approximately 65 yards from the tee box. Both sides of this hole are tree lined. A left side bunker and rough in front protects the elevated green. Hole ten poses a different challenge with the tee box further right in close vicinity to a tree with a large overhanging branch. The green contains many different slopes and subtle breaks. The photo below was taken from the top left hand side of the green. The extreme back right pin location should be approached with caution.

HOLE 2 PAR 4 326 / HOLE 11 PAR 4 368
The second hole, a par 4, is our signature “bell hole.” A blind tee shot over a hill provides a rare challenge for TGC newcomers. Players with local knowledge will favor the left side of the hole off the tee and aim above the trees on top of the hill directly in front of the box. The fairway past the hill slopes to the right, causing many tee shots to come to a stop in heavy rough on the right. A large area of rocks and trees to the right of the cart path causes many balls to be unplayable. Out of bounds on the left also comes into play. Players on the tee must wait for a bell signal coming from the players ahead who have hit their approach shots and are making their way to the green area. The bell is located to the right of the cart path. The green is highly elevated with the front side heavily guarded with rough. The green has a large undulation that creates a major false front. Past the false front is a relatively flat area that serves as home to all pin locations. The most difficult pin locations are those that are anywhere near the front half of the green. Hole eleven is located 42 yards behind hole two.

HOLE 3 PAR 4 412 / HOLE 12 PAR 4 415
The third hole is a downhill par 4 with an elevated tee box. Out of bounds left and trouble right can make the tee shot demanding. Wind often flowing left to right has put many balls in an area of trees to the right of the cart path that the locals have dubbed “the Bermuda Triangle.” A safe tee shot yields a reasonably short approach to a green that is greatly sloped from back to front. Heavy greenside rough on both sides can turn a slight miss on the approach into a short game nightmare. Overshoot the green and your ball may not come to rest until it is at the bottom of a hill on the backside of the green. Many putts on this green are difficult to read, giving locals the decisive advantage. The tee box for hole twelve is located above and to the left of the teeing area for hole three. It is the highest elevated point on the golf course and many believe it is the most scenic as well. The Sangre de Cristo mountain range serves as the backdrop to these amazing holes.
HOLE 4 PAR 4 433 / HOLE 13 PAR 5 486
The fourth hole, a par 4, becomes the thirteenth hole, a par 5, on the back 9 of the course. Heavily tree lined on both sides, this holes large fairway can lure a player into a false sense of security. The tee shot on hole four can take place near the center of the hole, or on the extreme left as there are different tee box locations. The tee shot on the thirteenth takes place on the extreme left and must be struck precisely with out of bounds left becoming more of a factor. Players will be hitting approaches downhill to a green that has bunkers left and right. It has a large hill behind and is another green with many delicate breaks. Approaches missed left can careen to the tee boxes for the next hole or as far as out of bounds.

HOLE 5 PAR 3 135 / HOLE 14 PAR 3 163
The fifth hole is a short par 3 with trouble on three sides of the green. A fence surrounds the left, right, and back areas outside the green and leaves very little room for error. Find yourself against the fence and you may take your ball to the drop zone below the green to the right for a penalty stroke. A drop may be the wisest option, but many still opt for the more courageous shot from near the fence. The green slopes from back to front and makes even short putts a test.
HOLE 6 PAR 5 434 / HOLE 15 PAR 5 502
The sixth hole is a short par 5 with a dogleg left, and a fairway that slopes left much of the way. This can lead to a difficult approach shot with the ball above the feet. From the tee there is trouble on both sides. The green has numerous trees in very close vicinity to the left, and many shots from the fairway have a tendency to contact them. A cart path is directly below these trees and has claimed many victims as well. The green itself is widely regarded as the most menacing here at TGC. Finding yourself past a front hole location will produce a brutally fast downhill putt. Countless balls putted in this scenario have not come to rest until they rolled off the green and past the fringe. The fifteenth tee box is located 68 yards behind the sixth.
HOLE 7 PAR 3 181 / HOLE 16 PAR 3 163
A very unique offering here at TGC, the seventh hole is an uphill par 3 that can challenge even the most seasoned players. Trees with overhanging branches cover approximately a third of the green to the left. Miss too far left and your ball has a good chance of rolling down the hill into a heavily forested area to the left of the cart path. There is a large mound on the right side of the green that funnels balls hit to that area onto the center or left side of the green. Only a well-struck approach shot has a chance of coming to rest on the green. A bunker in the back of the hole can stop a shot that has moved past the green on the right. The green slopes from back to front and right to left. Many pin locations on this green are fierce, especially those near the front left. The sixteenth tee is elevated above the seventh, providing a near level shot to the green.
HOLE 8 PAR 4 297 / HOLE 17 PAR 3 232
An elevated tee box par 4, the eighth hole, turns into a long par 3, the seventeenth hole, on the back 9. The drivable eighth has thick trees and trouble left. It has fewer trees to the right near the fairway, but has several more trees right near the green. Rough again serves as the main guard of this green’s front side. Like the first hole, the green is somewhat elevated and has many different slopes within its boundaries. Players often find themselves playing from many formidable locations on this seemingly less challenging hole.
HOLE 9 PAR 4 315/ HOLE 18 PAR 4 331
The final hole is a short par 4. It has out of bounds on the left and a large area to miss in the rough to the right. Go too far right or too long, however, you’ll find yourself past the old stone boundaries and out of bounds. A fairway bunker is present on the left side of this hole just past the old tennis court fences. Bunkers are also located left and right of the green. The fairway of this hole starts uphill, and then travels downhill into a green that is sloped slightly from back to front. Hit just the right spot in the fairway and you could be looking at closing out your day at TGC with an eagle putt.
