The opening, dogleg right par 4 will play tougher then its 336 yard indicate. The best play off the tee is to aim for the 150 yard post to avoid the marsh that stretches the entire left side of the hole and leave a full shot into the green. The cross bunkers down the right side of the fairway must also be avoided to have a chance to hit the postage stamp size green, guarded by a deep bunker on the left. Par on this hole is a good start.

Another dogleg right par 4, but this one will test length and accuracy. The safe play from the tee is down the left side of the fairway, but this will also leave you a long approach shot onto an undulating green. The longer hitter can have to carry the cross bunker on the right side of the fairway and navigate the towering pines as well. Be aware of the bunker guarding the front left side of the green, which receives many stray approaches.

With bunkers and mounding to the left and the water hazard spanning the length of the hole, a mid-iron approach shot was never so difficult. Trying to place your tee shot on the right side of the green offers an uphill putt but brings the water into play. A good tee shot will be rewarded with a reasonable chance at birdie, but miss the green and you will do great to save par.

This long par 4 doglegs to the left. The best tee ball is aimed for the 150 post. If you try to cut too much of the dogleg, thick rough and mounds await your tee ball. The approach is one of the most difficult on the course. The long, narrow green is protected by large mounds to the left and a deep bunker to the right. Play to the center of the green as par is always a great score on this hole.

One of the most beautiful holes on the golf course. The ample fairway is lined with three large oaks down the left side, which severely restricts the landing area. Out of bounds, two bunkers and an overhanging oak await any stray tee balls to the right. In addition, a natural hazard borders the entire left side of the hole. Stay below the hole on this green for the best opportunity to make birdie.

This demanding par 3 of about 200 yards requires both length and accuracy to hit the green. A lateral hazard spans the entire left side of the hole and boarders the green. The bail out area is to the right, but large mounds and a green that slopes from right to left towards the greenside bunkers will make saving par almost impossible. Center of the green and a two-putt par will feel like birdie on this hole.

This dogleg left has more teeth than it appears from the tee. A driver is not necessary from the tee, but will help offer an easier approach to the green. The thick rough and mounding on the left must be avoided. Pay attention to pin position and wind direction as the approach shot to this elevated green tends to play at least a half club longer. Avoid the two deep, front bunkers that guard this green or you will be severely challenged to get up and down for par.

The first of the three par 5’s at Coosaw, this one of just 500 yards offers the best chance at birdie. A long, straight drive down the right side of the fairway will offer the best opportunity to reach the green in two. Beware of the fairway bunker on the left that swallows most stray drives to the left and the trees that knock down tee balls to the right. The narrow green is protected by a very large bunker to the left and mounding to the right. If you cannot reach the green in two, leave yourself a full approach shot to this tricky green.

Accuracy is the name of the game on the final par 4 of the front nine. Aim your tee ball for the 150 yard post to have the best look at this hourglass shaped green. Fairway bunkers up the left side and trees on the right that encroach into the landing area deter those who want to swing their driver. The oak in the middle of the fairway will make you feel anxious over your approach shot, but the many bunkers guarding the green will more likely come into play. Distance control on your approach shot in necessary to safely navigate a par.

The very demanding back nine opens with a gentle dogleg right par 4 of about 400 yards. Your tee ball should favor the left side of the fairway to avoid the marsh and hazard lining the right side of the hole. The greenside bunker and mounding to the left must be avoided to make par. The narrow sloping from left to right will make a par save extremely difficult.

The most difficult par 3 on the course awaits you at the eleventh tee and starts a rigorous stretch of holes. Measuring out at 225 yards, length will be the least of your worries. Two marsh areas must be carried to reach the green. Bunkers at the front and back await tee balls that veer left. Once on this very undulating green your putting prowess will be tested to get down in two. Three here is a real accomplishment.

The toughest par 5 you will play! This hole measures out at 600 yards and demands three great shots to hit the green in regulation. The pot bunker in the middle of the fairway must be avoided off the tee or a wedge out will be your only play. The second shot must be aimed toward the left fairway bunker to avoid the pines that jut into play on the right side, for the third shot. Play for the center of this difficult green and pat yourself on the back for a 5 or better.

Holes 13 and 14 are the two most difficult par 4’s back to back at Coosaw Creek. This slight dogleg left par 4 of 420 yards gives you an opportunity to bomb away from the tee. A wide, mounded fairway offers ample space to hit your tee ball. A drive down the left side is the most direct route to the green, but brings the grove of oaks that lines the fairway into play. This long, narrow green requires an accurate approach to avoid the bunker on the left and the severe drop off to the right, but hit this green and you will have a good look at birdie.

Welcome to the #1 handicap hole on the course. This dogleg right par 4 will test every part of your game. A long, accurate tee ball aimed at the 150 post will put you in position, but be aware of the trees that protect the dogleg on the right side. Thick rough and large mounds await stray tee balls on both the left and the right side, as well. After a successful tee ball, a long approach over a marsh area awaits. A deep bunker also guards the front and right side of the green. A large hogs back splits the center of the green and makes finishing off the hole a difficult proposition.

The last of the par 3’ offers a chance to catch your breath. Bunkers surround the green, as well as a large mound to the front and right. The green slopes severely from back left to front right. Staying below the hole is a necessity to make birdie.

The final par 5 on the course offers another chance at birdie. Measuring at just over 500 yards the challenge will be to avoid the water hazard splitting the fairway at about 225 yards from the green. Long hitters may not want to hit driver from the tee. A large fairway bunker to the right also offers a challenge on the second shot. The approach area in front of the green pinches in tight the closer you get to the green. Avoid those hazards and a birdie is a real possibility here.

Accuracy will again be the necessity on this dogleg right par 4. The 150 yard post is the aiming spot to leave the best look at the green. The marsh that cuts through the fairway will pose a threat on both the tee ball and the approach shot. The elevated green, guarded by front left bunker and marsh along the right side, requires a half club extra into the green. Play smart and a birdie awaits.

The finishing dogleg left par 4 is all about risk and reward. The safe play is down the right side of the fairway, but will leave you with a long blind approach into a very small green. Big hitting can risk cutting the dogleg over the marsh but the penalty for failing is severe. A good tee shot can lead to a closing birdie.
