Hole 1
Hole Name
From The Tee
From The Fairway A well-struck center of the fairway drive off the tee sets up a short to mid-iron approach.
On The Green A tee shot down the left side flirts with a series of bunkers and dunes, while a tee shot to the right creates a longer approach from the rough. Favor the right center of the green to avoid deep bunkers short left and long.
Hole 2
Hole Name
From The Tee
From The Fairway A tee shot down the left side of the fairway is required on this hole to avoid a blind second shot. If electing to take an aggressive approach by going
On The Green for this green in two, players will have to clear a deep pot bunker situated 35 yards short of the green. If played as a three-shot hole, the third shot plays slightly uphill to a narrow green guarded by deep bunkers to the left of the green and a large runoff swale to the right.
Hole 3
Hole Name
From The Tee Favor the right side of this huge, undulating green to avoid Lake Michigan and deep bunkers and dunes to the left.
From The Fairway
On The Green Any shot landing on the right half of this green will move quickly left. Hole location will dramatically change club selection from short irons to mid irons, even when calm wind conditions exist.
Hole 4
Hole Name
From The Tee A long, visually intimidating par 4.
From The Fairway Large mounding down the right of the fairway tends to make golfers want to favor the left; however, most shots bounce left toward bunkers and dunes that drop off quickly toward Lake Michigan.
On The Green Approach shots require a mid to long iron into a slightly elevated green. The green hangs on the edge of Lake Michigan’s bluffs and forces players to favor the right center portion of the green.
Hole 5
Hole Name
From The Tee This will be a three-shot par 5 for most players.
From The Fairway Water runs along both the left and right sides of the fairway. The landing area sets players up for a difficult decision on their second shot.
On The Green Players that dare to hit their second shot to the green will be challenged by a long carry over water to a narrow green with no room for error short or left. A more conservative approach is to hit mid to long irons down the fairway to set up a better approach angle with the third shot, played with a short iron into this narrow green.
Hole 6
Hole Name
From The Tee A short, dogleg right that may lead to a blind approach shot if the player strays right off the tee.
From The Fairway
On The Green Some of the braver and longer players may attempt to drive the green with a hard-driving cut shot; however, a deep sand pot bunker guards the middle half of the green and must be avoided at all costs. Any shot short, right or long, will leave a very difficult pitch to a green that is narrow, undulating and difficult to rail.
Hole 7
Hole Name
From The Tee This striking par 3 hugs the Lake Michigan shoreline on the right. Beside the lake,
From The Fairway
On The Green this green is protected by a series of sand bunkers on the right and short. The left side is framed by a large hillside layered with sand bunkers. This long green will make club selection critical and has many subtle movements on it to challenge players’ putting.
Hole 8
Hole Name
From The Tee A blind landing area off the tee will challenge players to keep their tee shots left in order to avoid a severe drop-off, sand dunes, bunkers and Lake Michigan on the right.
From The Fairway The second shot is played with the Great Lakes as a backdrop. A long iron or fairway wood may be required to reach a very deep green guarded on the left by sand dunes and bunker sand right by
On The Green deep bunkers with a falloff to the lake. The green is long and deep and will create difficult club selection choices to ensure playing to the right area on the green.
Hole 9
Hole Name
From The Tee A tee shot down the left tends to kick toward the right. If your tee shot is too far right, a large tree about 100 yards short of the green may block your approach.
From The Fairway
On The Green Swirling wind conditions on this hole dictate club selection from short to mid irons approaching this slightly humpbacked green. Seven Mile Creek and a series of narrow sand bunkers wind along the right side of the green while the left side is protected by sand dunes and bunkers.
Hole 10
Hole Name
From The Tee The aggressive play off the tee is a driver as close to the left side of
From The Fairway the fairway edge as possible while avoiding the drop-off left. The deep bunker on the right side of the landing area will require a carry of at least 240 yards that sets up a wedge approach to this elevated green.
On The Green Some players may elect to hit driver at the green in hopes for glory but will have to avoid small but deep sand bunkers short left while hitting into a steep hillside guarding the front of this green. This green has many subtle breaks that will fool quite a few players.
Hole 11
Hole Name
From The Tee Playing over 600 yards will challenge most players to hit drivers, but anything straying right will be swallowed by sand dunes, bunkers and a drop-off to the right.
From The Fairway
On The Green The second shot must avoid a huge sand bunker on the left extending out to about 100 yards from the green. The approach shot plays to a small, elevated green. Any shot landing on the front edge will roll back down, short of the green. Any shot slightly long is likely to find a sand bunker guarding the back center of the green.
Hole 12
Hole Name
From The Tee This may be the most difficult of all greens to manage. In addition, a hole location in the back right tier will get every player’s attention. .
From The Fairway
On The Green This par 3 plays downhill to a very large, undulating green. Any shot landing in the middle of the green may reject long into deep bunkers. If missed short or right, the green drops off 40 feet to dunes and Lake Michigan. Getting the tee shot on the green in where the fun begins, as reading all of the breaks will take a very talented eye
Hole 13
Hole Name
From The Tee
From The Fairway Favor the left side of the fairway off the tee on this short par 4.
On The Green A tee shot that misses the fairway right will find sand dunes and awkward lies. A short approach shot is downhill to a narrow cliffhanger green next to Lake Michigan, protected by sand bunkers short right and left. An errant approach to the right will be lost to the steep bluffs overhanging the Great Lake.
Hole 14
Hole Name
From The Tee
From The Fairway The long-iron or fairway metal tee shot favors the right side of the fairway. Any tee shots to the left will most likely end up with a blind approach shot or in a sand bunker that guards the left side of the fairway.
On The Green While the approach shots will be with short irons, deep sand bunkers guard the right side of this undulating green with more sand bunkers guarding the green long and left.
Hole 15
Hole Name
From The Tee This hole begins what could arguably be the most difficult four finishing holes in championship golf. A beautiful par 4 requires raw power off the tee as well as an accurate long-iron or metal approach shot.
From The Fairway Favor the left side of the fairway to avoid sunken sand bunkers to the right. This green has many subtle breaks to it and will challenge every player.
On The Green
Hole 16
Hole Name
From The Tee The shortest of the Straits’ par 5 holes will tempt most players to hit driver off the tee to gain a chance to hit this green in two.
From The Fairway The center of the fairway is certainly a wise place to find since there are sand bunkers protecting the right and a drop-off toward Lake Michigan on the left. The long approach uphill has a forced carry over sand dunes and bunkers that will cause may players to bail out right.
On The Green Those conservative players will be left with a short wedge into this elevated green with the sky and Lake Michigan as a backdrop.
Hole 17
Hole Name
From The Tee One of Pete Dye's most intimidating par 3 holes – anywhere. The green is guarded left by sand dunes that fall 20 feet below green level. If the bunker doesn't capture the tee shot, Lake Michigan certainly will.
From The Fairway
On The Green A large elevated sand dune 40 yards short of the green will invite players toward the left side of the green, which is risky because of the drop-off toward the Great Lake. Tee shots straying right will find sand dunes and bunkers on a steep hillside protecting the right side of the green.
Hole 18
Hole Name
From The Tee A challenging finishing hole where par will be an excellent target.
From The Fairway A well-struck tee shot down the right side will surely find the fairway but will leave a long iron for the approach to the green.
On The Green Even though the approach is downhill, swirling winds surrounding the green complex force players to play an extra club into the green, which demands a forced carry over Seven Mile Creek, guarding the front side of this huge green.
