Hole-by-Hole Descriptions

Rabbit Ears: Par 4

Rabbit Ears: Par 4

The first hole is a friendly opener heading towards Rabbit Ears Pass. A slight uphill second shot approaches a soft mound in front of the green, hindering the view of the putting surface.
408 / 362 / 349 / 279

Westward Ho: Par 4

Westward Ho: Par 4

A generous landing area is found after a good drive. Bunkers located front and left of the green mask the true distance to the pin.
23 / 390 / 368 / 259

Old Tom: Par 4

Old Tom: Par 4

Old Tom Morris was the first of the great Scottish golf architects; hole #3 celebrates his name. This full two-shot hole requires a good uphill second shot to the plateau of the green.
56 / 436 / 375 / 346

Flat Tops: Par 4

Flat Tops: Par 4

A difficult par 4 requiring a long, accurate drive. It is best to place your ball left of the center fairway bunker. Take one less club for a downhill second shot to the green which slopes away from you. Redan Creek, 15 yards behind the green, awaits an over-aggressive approach.
7 / 420 / 375 / 322

Redan: Par 3

Redan: Par 3

Redan is designed and named after the famous fifteenth hole at North Berwick, Scotland. “Redan” means fortress over which a mid-iron must carry to reach the green. Left results in a certain bogey; long and left will find Redan Creek.
211 / 185 / 172 / 135

Cattle Drive: Par 5

Cattle Drive: Par 5

Cattle Drive is a long cross-country haul that requires three full shots. The wall, 100 yards short of the green, is a remnant of an irrigation aqueduct incorporated into the course design. It can be an obstacle if your ball fades right.
636 / 590 / 577 / 429

Respite: Par 3

Respite: Par 3

Following holes 3 through 6, a British observer called this short par 3 “a bit of a respite.” The green slopes sharply from left to right. Bunkers on the left must be avoided to make par.
175 / 146 / 128 / 112

Ring the Bell: Par 4

Ring the Bell: Par 4

A driveable par 4 over right side wetlands. If you decide to lay up, you are left with a short second shot to an undulating green.
347 / 310 / 276 / 221

Goin’ to Town: Par 5

Goin’ to Town: Par 5

The ninth hole heads straight towards town. Avoid the bunkers and you can finish the front side with a par or better.
537 / 515 / 485 / 423

Waterloo: Par 4

Waterloo: Par 4

A challenging par 4 to start the back nine. Wetlands and a pond guard the entire right side.
454 / 406 / 400 / 322

Watering Hole: Par 4

Watering Hole: Par 4

A short par 4 that requires accuracy, not distance off the tee. A long drive over the “eyebrows” leaves a short pitch and birdie chance to the peninsula green.
343 / 318 / 291 / 229

Greywall: Par 3

Greywall: Par 3

Focus on the green and a well struck middle to short iron is all that is needed.
163 / 152 / 116 / 75

Around the Bend: Par 5

Around the Bend: Par 5

Long hitters can reach this par 5 in two. This hole is a dog leg left, which comes into view on your second shot. A wayward approach shot to the left should rebound onto the green.
546 / 525 / 459 / 382

Black Diamond: Par 4

Black Diamond: Par 4

The longest par 4 on the back nine plays shorter due to an elevated tee. Long hitters must hit a 3 wood or stay right of the wetlands which jut into the fairway from the left. The green is large and generous.
479 / 429 / 399 / 326

MacKenzie: Par 4

MacKenzie: Par 4

Named after Alistair MacKenzie, designer of Augusta National and Cypress Point, 15 draws its name from the undulating “Mackenzie” style green. Use plenty of club on your uphill second shot to the green, which is over 100 feet front to rear.
439 / 403 / 366 / 311

Emerald View: Par 4

Emerald View: Par 4

Haymaker's signature hole presents a spectacular view of the Yampa Valley and Emerald Mountain. Avoid “the committee,” the group of five fairway bunkers along the right side. You are challenged by a downhill second shot over a creek to the wide but shallow green.
424 / 402 / 363 / 311

Ten Gallon: Par 3

Ten Gallon: Par 3

From the back tees this is a par three and a half. Enjoy the majestic view of Mount Werner!
