The Course

  • Tee #1


    A great starting hole. You want to favor the left side of the fairway to avoid hitting into the two fairway bunkers guarding the right portion of the landing area.

    Tee 1
  • Green #1


    Pay close attention to your club selection on your approach shot into this green. A deep bunker guards any shots hit short of this two-tiered green. See the hole layout

    Green 1
  • Tee #2


    A good tee shot will determine if you make a birdie or a bogey on this short Par 4.

    Tee 2
  • Green #2


    The second hole is a dogleg left with a long waste bunker guarding a majority of the left side of this hole. See the hole layout

    Green 2
  • Tee #3


    The first of our four Par 5s will test your decision-making and ball-striking abilities. Standing on the tee box, the tee shot looks like a bomber's paradise.

    Tee 3
  • Fairway #3


    Be careful to avoid the deep bunker guarding the left side of the fairway. Your second shot will test your decision making skills upon seeing the pond that encompasses the entire right side of the fairway and up through the green.

    Fairway 3
  • Green #3


    Long hitters may opt to go for it, but to ensure a par, most should lay up, leaving a nice wedge to the green. See the hole layout

    Green 3
  • Tee #4


    Another short Par 4 where the tee shot will set you up for a birdie. Two fairway bunkers on both sides of the fairway are waiting to catch any less than a perfect tee shot. Favor the right side to avoid out of bounds on the left.

    Tee 4
  • Green #4


    Club selection is of importance for your approach to this two-tiered green with a deep bunker guarding anything short, and bunkers guarding the right and left side of the green. See the hole layout

    Green 4
  • Tee #5


    Silverthorn's signature hole! This awesome Par 3 is completely guarded by water. Club selection and solid nerves are of great importance when playing this hole, and a greenside bunker is waiting to catch any shots hit long.

    Tee 5
  • Green #5


    The safe shot is to ignore the flagstick and hit for the center of the green. See the hole layout

    Green 5
  • Tee #6


    This testy Par 4 is the longest of the first 9 holes. A big dogleg left, where tee shot position is everything. You must first avoid the two fairway bunkers guarding the left side of the dogleg and only long hitters will be capable of carrying the bunkers. Any errant shots to the right will turn this hole into an even lengther approach shot.

    Tee 6
  • Green #6


    Your second shot is to a large two-tiered green with a greenside bunker guarding short and left of the green, and one protecting the back right side of the green. The green is bigger than it appears, so make sure you select your club carefully. See the hole layout

    Green 6
  • Tee #7


    The second Par 5 is a visual beauty. You will want to keep your tee shot to the left to avoid the fairway bunker guarding the right hand landing area. A good lay-up to the 100 yard marker will leave a nice wedge to a two-tiered green with a dramatic slope to the lower level.

    Tee 7
  • Green #7


    Anyone choosing to go for the green in two better have enough club to avoid the deep bunker which guards the front of the green. See the hole layout

    Green 7
  • Tee #8


    The nice downhill Par 3 is all about club selection. Be aware of hte wind as you won't feel its presence due to the tree-lined tee boxes.

    Tee 8
  • Green #8


    There are three tiers to this green and being on the right tier will help secure your birdie. See the hole layout

    Green 8
  • Tee #9


    Our #1 handicap hole, this Par 4 can destroy a good score. Being in the fairway is essential to making par on this hole. A pond runs down the left-hand side of the hole from the 175-yard mark and continues to and surrounds the left half of the green.

    Tee 9
  • Green #9


    On the right side, there are two fairway bunkers waiting for those who ball-out to the right. A retention area and out of bounds sit beyond the fairway bunkers. Your best approach is to aim for the center of this sloping green. See the hole layout

    Green 9
  • Tee #10


    A great hole to start your inward nine. Aim for the middle of the fairway to leave yourself a short iron into this elevated green. A deep bunker protects the front of this two-tiered green, so make sure your club selection is correct.

    Tee 10
  • Green #10


    Long hitters and risk-takers can carry the two fairway bunkers on the left side with their tee shot, which will leave a wedge into the green. See the hole layout

    Green 10
  • Tee #11


    A downhill Par 3, with a deceptive, well-bunkered green.

    Tee 11
  • Green #11


    A shot to the center of this green is ideal for par. See the hole layout

    Green 11
  • Tee #12


    The shortest of our Par 5s. A solid drive that avoids the bunkering on both sides of the fairway is a must. If you can avoid those, you will leave yourself a good opportunity for a birdie.

    Tee 12
  • Green #12


    Long hitters can reach in two, while shorter hitters can still get it close to the green. See the hole layout

    Green 12
  • Tee #13


    A short Par 4, a good drive will run a long way.

    Tee 13
  • Green #13


    Avoid the bunkers for a short iron to a large green, which will allow you another great opportunity to make birdie. See the hole layout

    Green 13
  • Tee #14


    An uphill drive to a narrow landing area will test your driving ability. On the right is a large fairway bunker with a deep lip, while the left side has two bunkers waiting to swallow errant shots.

    Tee 14
  • Green #14


    A mid to short iron to the center of this large green is ideal to making par. See the hole layout

    Green 14
  • Tee #15


    A long Par 3, this hole is heavily guarded by a marsh and surrounded by five greenside bunkers. Club selection is of utmost importance.

    Tee 15
  • Green #15


    The green is larger than what appears from the tee box and is generally flat. Center of the green is a good place to be. See the hole layout

    Green 15
  • Tee #16


    This short Par 4 is all about tee shot placement. Avoiding the large fairway bunker on the right is essential to making par. A deep wash out basin runs parallel to the left side of the fairway from 150 yards to just short of the green.

    Tee 16
  • Green #16


    An accurate tee shot in the fairway will leave you a short iron to the large green. See the hole layout

    Green 16
  • Tee #17


    This long, uphill Par 4 plays every bit of its yardage. Trees line both sides of the fairway and there is out of bounds quick and left.

    Tee 17
  • Green #17


    A fairway bunker on the right is waiting to catch any less than perfect drives. You will be left with a long to mid iron approach to a large green. See the hole layout

    Green 17
  • Tee #18


    A strong risk/reward closing hole. A strong drive on this Par 5 will test your decision making and nerves. Those who go for it will need every bit of nerves to carry the water guarding 3/4 of the green.

    Tee 18
  • Green #18


    A deceiving lay-up will leave a short iron or wedge to this large sloping green. A great finishing hole that will surely make you want to come back for more! See the hole layout

    Green 18
