The first hole is a 375 yard par 4. A good drive here is required as there are groups of pines on both the left and right sides of the fairway. Your second shot will require accuracy as this is the smallest green on the course. The green complex is protected by bunkers on both sides and a ditch in front. Avoid going over the green at all cost. If you hit the green you will have a great look at birdie. Good Luck!!!!
The second hole is a 362 yard par 4. A Slight dog leg left with an intruding tree that may come into play while teeing off. Don’t worry! It is wide open to the right side with just a few trees in the rough. As you approach the green you will see two bunkers, one on the back left and another on the front right. One of the larger greens on the golf course allows for some error. Missing short and in front of the green is the best miss.
The third hole at Inverness is a 413 yard par 4. It is the second longest par 4 on the course. Swing away here as the fourth hole is to your left and second hole on your right which provides bail out areas if you are wayward with your tee shot. The second shot will require some precision as you will be hitting into a two-tiered green. Par is a great score here!
At only 306 yards from the tee, the fourth hole at Inverness is a short par 4. The big hitters may have a great chance to hit this green in one, but be careful as you may find yourself out of bounds to the right or blocked out by trees to the left. The green is undulating with bunkers both front right and left, and will test your putting skills.
The first par three at Inverness is the shorter one of the two. A fade is the ideal shot shape for this hole as the large trees on the right protect the hole from a draw. At anywhere from 135-155 yards, an accurate iron shot will give you a great chance at birdie.
The sixth hole is the first of two par fives. Since being lengthened in 2013 the hole now stretches over 500 yards. A challenging tee shot requires you hit your tee ball through a narrow shoot of trees and over a small pond. After finding the fairway big hitters may have an opportunity to find the green in two. If not,favor the right side of the fairway for your approach as it is a little flatter than the left. Great chance for birdie.
Hole number seven is the longer par three of the two and has a challenging green that slopes severely from back to front with bunkers to each side. Below the hole with your tee shot is preferable.
The eighth at Inverness is the number one handicap hole on the golf course, and most challenging. It is a long par four with beautiful mature oak trees lining the left side that also serves as out of bounds. To the right, the large gully/pond fronting the sixth tee box comes into play and acts as a lateral hazard. Big hitters may want to hit a 3 wood or hybrid to stay short of the danger on the right side. The second shot is blind up the hill to a green that slopes away from you. Hitting the green in two is no easy task so if you do, be sure to two putt and get your par.
The final hole requires a long, straight tee shot to avoid bunkers that line each side of the fairway. Out of bounds to both the left and right can ruin a great round for the wayward drive. Another accurate approach between a chute of spruce trees on both sides to the front of the green can provide a great opportunity for birdie. Bunkers line both sides of the green that is very deceptive to putt.
