The opening hole at The Inverness Golf Club is a gradual dogleg left 372 yard par 4. Longer hitters don't need to hit a driver for fear of ending up in the right rough blocked out by trees. An approach shot played to the middle of the green will help avoid the two bunkers which guard the left and right sides of the green.
The second hole is the first of two 5 pars on the par 70 layout which plays 493 yards. The tee shot should favor the left of side of the fairway due to the fairway sloping from left to right. A tee ball that lands in the middle or right side of the fairway will most likely end up in the right rough, making going for the green in two virtually impossible. The layup shot should be played to the second fairway avoiding the small creek that dissects the fairway about 100 yards from the green. The skinny green slopes from back to front and is guarded by 5 bunkers.
The third hole is a difficult slightly downhill par 3 playing 178 yards. The tee shot is all carry due to a large pond in front of the green. The only bailout area is short left which is a risky shot due the out of bounds stakes that run closely along the left side. Hazards are abundant on this hole due the large pond, out of bounds and four bunkers that guard the green. Making a par on the third hole will definitely feel like a birdie.
An accurate drive down left side of the fairway is crucial due to the fairways sloping from left to right on the short 367 yard par 4 fourth hole. The green on the fourth hole is surrounded by four bunkers, and the approach shot should be kept below the hole.
The fifth hole is the number one handicap hole on the golf course. It is a 377 yard par 4 which plays significantly uphill. It is vital to get your second shot all the way up the hill or else you'll be faced with a difficult uphill pitch to a severely sloped green.
The sixth hole is a dogleg right par 4 playing 397 yards. The tee shot is well guarded by fairway bunkers on both sides of the fairway. The second shot plays slightly uphill to a green that slopes from back to front and right to left.
The seventh hole is long par 4 playing 427 yards with a generous landing area off the tee. The second shot plays about one club downhill and the green slopes from back to front.
The eighth hole is a 181 yard par 3 that plays about a half club uphill. The green is heavily guarded by bunkers and is severely undulated. You'll want to try and keep the ball below the hole or be faced with a challenging downhill slider.
The ninth hole is a dogleg right 408 yard par 4. Hitting the fairway on this hole will be vital due to large trees on the right and left sides of the fairway. The second shot plays a little uphill with a large deep bunker that guards the front of the green that slopes from back to front.
The tenth is a gradual dogleg left 381 yard par 4. Bigger hitters can challenge the left fairway bunker to give them a short wedge shot to the green and a chance for a birdie.
The eleventh hole is 175 yard par 3 over a pond. A tee shot that lands short of the green will likely roll back into the pond. The green slopes pretty severely from back to front and is guarded by four bunkers.
The twelfth hole is a straight away downhill 402 yard par 4. It is best to favor the right side of the fairway off the tee to give yourself the best angle to attack the flag and avoid the four bunkers that surround the green.
The thirteenth hole is a 400 yard par 4 and the signature hole of the golf course. You'll want to aim at the tallest cottonwood tree in the distance to avoid the creek that runs the length of the hole on the left. Making sure you pull the right club for your approach shot is crucial because the front of the green is protected by a small pond that is not visible from the fairway.
The fourteenth hole is a 411 yard par 4. You'll want to avoid the creek that guards the left and right side of this fairway. The green is one of the more difficult greens on the course due its severe undulations.
The fifteenth hole is a challenging 168 yard par 3 over water. The green is guarded by three bunkers and slopes from back to front. A tee shot to the middle of the green will give you a good chance at making a birdie.
The sixteenth hole is a 575 yard par 5. An ideal tee shot is one that favors the right side of the fairway avoiding the fairway bunker on the left. Bigger hitters can take a crack at the green but want to be careful of the bunkers on the left and right of the green.
The seventeenth hole is a par 4 measuring 353 yards. Don't take the short yardage for granted on this hole as there is plenty of trouble lurking. A pond that is not visible from the tee comes into play about 230 yards off the tee. The second shot should be kept below the hole due to a slope that runs throughout the middle of the green.
The eighteenth hole is a uphill 389 yard par 4. A tee shot that avoids the two fairway bunkers on the left side of the fairway will give you the best angle to the green. The second shot plays more uphill than it appears and the green has some pretty generous slopes. Making a par at the last is a great way to finish the round.
