#11. Hidden Pond
To the left of the fairway is a lake, camouflaged by a slight uphill tee shot. Avoid the fairway bunkers, as the pond must also be negotiated on the second shot as well.
#12. White Rock
Don’t be distracted by White Rock Mountain, the mountain you are facing with four humps, stay clear of the dangers surrounding this green.
#13. Turning Home
From this point, you are heading back home. Make certain you have your approach the right distance, as this green is not very deep.

The entire mountain range is known as the Appalachians; however, this section is referred to as the Alleghenies. From the Championship Tees, there is an 85-foot change in elevation. What a spectacular view of the surrounding area!

#18. Swan Song
A fitting finish to this eighteen holes, once again along the creek with The Lodge as a backdrop. There may even be a pair of Swans in your gallery!
