Hilltop Par 5 – Gold 507 Blue 471 White 441 Copper 398 Green 356

From an elevated tee, the landing area is generous, yet the pot style bunker cut into the hill on the right must be avoided. From this bunker it is a significant accomplishment to simply advance your ball to the hilltop plateau. Longer hitters can carry to the top of the hill, easily avoiding the right bunker, but have to navigate the left bunker positioned at the crest and trees which narrow the landing area on the plateau.

The scenic shots from the plateau are slightly downhill to a narrow, deep, hourglass shaped green guarded by mounding short right and three greenside bunkers. The putting surface contains multiple internal contours, is one of the more difficult to read on the course, and the front is sneaky fast as the green slopes more than it appears.  Played smartly, Hilltop provides a chance for birdie or eagle, creating momentum for the enjoyable yet challenging journey through Raynor Corner; Hole #11 Biarritz – Hole #12 Short – Hole #13 Prize Dogleg… Good Luck!
