The longest and most difficult par 3 on the golf course.
Water protects the entire left side of the hole, forcing players to play away from the water.
This hole is consistently one of the most difficult, and players will have to be careful not to make a big number here.
Hole # 5
Par 4 – 333 yards
One of my favorite holes, this short par 4, gives the players several options.
This is a great hole to watch because it is reachable for the long hitters, and you may see an eagle if a player can drive the green.

OakWing’s signature hole.
A dogleg right with water protecting the entire right side of the hole will force players to be careful on this hole.

An excellent par 3, which requires an accurate tee shot.
Deep greenside bunkers protect both sides of the green.

Hole # 9
Par 5 – 567 yards
The large fairway on this par 5 will allow players to hit it hard and long to get into position to reach the green in two.

Another great birdie opportunity.
Hole # 10

Distance control will be the key because of a very shallow green that works away from the players.

Hole # 16
Par 5 – 560 yards
