       Hole 1          ---                 Par-4         ---         Men's Handicap 15
429 406 379 351

Pro Tip: On second shot, play to left side of green
avoiding deep greenside bunker on right. Nice warm up hole.


       Hole 2          ---                 Par-4          ---         Men's Handicap 1
489 460 436 407

Pro Tip: Hitting the fairway is crucial, leaving a long iron or fairway wood
to a gently sloped back to front green. Escape with par and move on.

       Hole 3          ---                 Par-3         ---         Men's Handicap 13
180 166 139 110

Pro Tip: Pay special attention where the pin is;
birdie putts are easier from the correct tier on this multi-level green.

       Hole 4          ---                 Par-4         ---         Men's Handicap 17
396 381 351 331

Pro Tip: Good drive leaves just a wedge into a receptive green. Play to
center of green clearing both greenside bunkers. Excellent birdie chance.

       Hole 5          ---                 Par-5         ---         Men's Handicap 11
595 577 547 476

Pro Tip: Wide driving area off tee. Green features a spine that splits the
left and right ride of green, penalizing a shot to the wrong side.

       Hole 6          ---                 Par-4         ---         Men's Handicap 5
409 395 355 332

Pro Tip: Take caution when cutting the corner on this gentle dogleg
as a fairway bunker and hazard await the errant drive.

       Hole 7          ---                 Par-3         ---         Men's Handicap 7
208 199 166 145

Pro Tip: Choose your club wisely on challenging par-3, only a shot to the
correct level will leave a realistic birdie putt. Par is a good score here.

       Hole 8          ---                 Par-5         ---         Men's Handicap 9
566 559 536 489

Pro Tip: Long hitters can get home in two but everyone else must lay up
short of the desert. Excellent opportunity for birdie.

       Hole 9          ---                 Par-4         ---         Men's Handicap 3
472 450 408 373

Pro Tip: Long par-4 demands a long straight drive and excellent distance
control on the second shot. Par here makes lunch at the turn even better.

       Hole 10          ---                 Par-4         ---         Men's Handicap 16
378 354 324 298

Pro Tip: Risk-reward hole: if you can make it then go for the green, but if
not stay short of the deep bunker fronting the green. Birdie chance here.

       Hole 11          ---                 Par-4         ---         Men's Handicap 2
478 435 417 366

Pro Tip: Toughest and yet most scenic drive on the course. Find the
fairway off the tee and a left to right sloped green awaits the approach.

       Hole 12          ---                 Par-3         ---         Men's Handicap 14
215 188 164 147

Pro Tip: Take notice of the pin on this par-3, because at all costs you must
avoid being above the hole on this severely back to front tiered green
.

       Hole 13          ---                 Par-4         ---         Men's Handicap 10
329 313 247 220

Pro Tip: Long hitters can go for the green off the tee, as the backstop will
help hold incoming shots. Excellent birdie opportunity for all players.

       Hole 14          ---                 Par-4         ---         Men's Handicap 4
432 413 365 335

Pro Tip: Carefully placed tee shots just right of the fairway bunker are
rewarded with a clear shot to an uphill narrow green. Stay left coming in.

       Hole 15          ---                 Par-3        ---         Men's Handicap 12
189 168 147 134

Pro Tip: Elevated tee places a premium on controlling trajectory on this
par-3, which plays shorter than the yardage. Avoid the pot bunker.

       Hole 16          ---                 Par-4         ---         Men's Handicap 6
398 377 339 276

Pro Tip: Rio Secco's signature hole requires a straight tee ball and rewards
with a wedge or short iron to a gently back to front sloped green.

       Hole 17          ---                 Par-5        ---         Men's Handicap 18
516 485 460 446

Pro Tip: Ideal tee shot is to the edge of the split fairway and a receptive
green greets both the run up and all-carry apporaches. Get a birdie here. 

       Hole 18          ---                 Par-5         ---         Men's Handicap 8
634 601 576 521

Pro Tip: Let it rip off the tee to a generous landing area, but only the
biggest hitters will get home in two on this long five par. Tiger Woods
had 6-iron in for his second shot during his course record setting 64.
