Hole

Hole #1

"St. Andrews"

The opening hole at Tribute Golf Club is a fitting monument to one of the most famous opening holes: the first hole at St. Andrews Golf Club. This simple-looking hole fits perfectly into the philosophy of the great Scottish links—it may look docile, but it severely punishes golfers in a number of different ways. Despite the traditional caddie’s warning that it’s almost impossible to hit out-of-bounds off the tee, most golfers aim to the left, as this first hole shares a fairway with the 18th hole.

Hole #2

"Carnoustie"

Carnoustie is one of the toughest, meanest, and most demanding courses in all of Scotland and this par 4 second hole is a tribute to the fifth hole at Carnoustie, one of the best of the outward nine on our seaside links. Named “Brae” by course locals, it presents players with a variety of options to attack the hole, which measures 421 yards from the back tees. All but the longest hitters must layup in front of a burn, which runs across the fairway midway from the green. The green is long and slightly elevated with plenty of brae, heather, and gorse all along the left side.

Hole #3

"Carnoustie"

Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth and Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles are both known as Hogan's Alley for the legendary Texas Golfer, Ben Hogan's successes at the two courses. But only one course and one hole, the sixth at Carnoustie, is known as Hogan's Alley on the European Continent. When Hogan won the 1953 Open at Carnoustie, one of the three majors he won in that magical year, he birdied this hole twice in the 36-hole final day in route to his victory. Known simply as "Hogan's Alley" on the course scoreboard, it measures 581 yards from the back tees with Hogan's famous bunkers in the middle of the fairway. Along with the fifth hole, it's considered one of the best 1-2 punches in Scotland.

Hole #4

"Royal Dornoch"

A tribute to famous Scottish designer-turned-American-architectural-legend Donald Ross and his home course of Royal Dornoch, our fourth hole is characterized by its elevated green location, a design technique Ross brought to American masterpiece Pinehurst No. 2. Two huge sod walled greenside bunkers are to be avoided at all cost along with thick native grass on the left side.

 
X
4

Hole #5

"Royal Troon"

Known simply as the Postage Stamp, this 5th hole is a tribute to the par 3 8th at Royal Troon Golf Club. It's the shortest hole in major championship golf, measuring 127 yards from the back tees, but has claimed untold victims over the years with its tiny green and hilly terrain, offering several places to lose your tee shot. This silver of a hole, which starts with an elevated tee to a clustered green, has dished-out more sorrow than success over centuries.

 
X
5

Hole #6

"Machrihanish" 

The 6th hole is a tribute to the remote opening hole of the Machrihanish links, located on the Kintyre Peninsula, making it one of the most remote inland courses in Scotland. It features one of the original cape or risk-reward holes anywhere in the region. Players can cut off as much of this dogleg left as they feel is possible, hitting over the Atlantic shoreline, which is in play on the original layout.

 
X
6

Hole #7

"Turnberry"

The seventh hole is a tribute to the fifth hole at Alisa Course in Turnberry, a 36-hole championship complex on the southern tip of Scotland. The 7th hole, 466 yards from the back or medal markers, is a long and stern test with mounds and other native grass all along the left side. The green is narrow and steep with pot bunkers on the left and right.

 
X
7

Hole #8

"Moray" 

This par three is a tribute to the 4th hole at Old Course at Moray in North Scotland near Lossiemouth Royal Air Base. This hole has water and native grass all along the left and less hospitable mounds on the right. The green is large and kidney shaped, meaning the flag can almost be hidden on the right side behind a huge mid-green ridge or in plain sight in the middle of the green, but still not an easy path for a birdie or par.

 
X
8

Hole #9

"Muirfield" 

This par five forces players to think and consider their various options with every shot. The initial drive can portend many things, good and bad. The good shot can be in excellent shape to reach the smallish green in two or three shots or the bad will be in deep trouble and en route to a high scorecard number. There is a large wall along the left side with native grasses to snare any misplaced first or second shots.

 
X
9
OUT

Hole #10

"Prestwick" 

A tribute to the par four 9th hole at the original home of the Open Championship at Prestwick, just outside of Troon, Scotland. The ninth at Prestwick will penalize anything less than two excellently played shots on this hole, which plays much more like a par five. It's 456 yards from back tees with dense brush all along both sides. Players must confront a small green, which slopes severely downward midway through the surface.

 
X
10

Hole #11

"St. Andrews"

This par three, the eleventh at St. Andrews, shares a double green with the seventh at the original course as part of the inward and outward links characteristics of golf's birthplace. Another simple, straightforward design which can snare the simplest of shots with its steep elevated green and huge bunkers.

 
X
11

Hole #12

"Prestwick"

This par five is a tribute to the 12th hole at Prestwick. Imagination is needed on every shot, as a fairly wide fairway leads to a very narrow and tight green opening. There is ample room to drive along the left side as it borders the 10th hole, but the second and third shots are all important, as the protected green can be exceedingly hard to hit from long distances.

 
X
12

Hole #13

"Nairn"

This great par four showcases one of the great Scottish design insights, a drivable par four. At just 310 yards from the back tees, and 243 yards from the forward tees, the hole mightily tempts many a golfer to think they can reach the green with their tee shot, but then greatly penalizes them if they come up short. This fairway is a series of rolling pitches up and down, which can send the ball careening in any direction if they miss the multi-level green.

 
X
13

Hole #14

"Muirfield" 

This par three is a tribute to the 13th hole at Muirfield, one of the oldest and one of the most exclusive golf courses in Scotland or the world. The hole is 201 yards from the back tees with deep-set bunkers on each side of the green and mounding to provide natural beauty and at sunrise and sunset. The green can be very long and difficult at 48 yards, so it's extremely important to gauge proper wind direction and club selection.

 
X
14

Hole #15

"Western Gailes"

This is a tribute to one of the more classic links courses in all of the world, Western Gailes and its par five 14th hole. It has been labeled one of the top holes in the world by a national golf publication and is laid out much like a chessboard. From the back tees of 566 yards, every successive shot must be considered like moves against a grand master with each route taken exposing the golfer to more danger and challenge.

 
X
15

Hole #16

"Turnberry" 

A tribute to the 16th hole of the Alisa Course at Turnberry. This relatively short par four, just 418 yards from the back markers, can play a big factor in a player's final score. It's possible to reach the small burn with a tremendous tee shot, but the best players will lay back to leave themselves a short wedge to a heavily slanted green.

 
X
16

Hole #17

"St. Andrews" 

Arguably the most single famous hole in the world. Known as the Road Hole, this par four 17th at St. Andrews has bedeviled golfers for centuries with its length, design, and hidden dangers. Golfers must drive over an old shed off the tee to a largely hidden fairway. An actual road runs all along the right side with out-of-bounds further right.

 
X
17

Hole #18

"St. Andrews" 

A fitting, final tribute to golf's great history and tradition is the 18th hole at St. Andrews, as showcased by this sturdy par four. The burn runs right in front of the tee box with the famous Swilken Bridge where golfers traditionally pay their last respects to St. Andrews as they cross the water.

Rating/Slope
Hole

Hole #1

This hole is a straightaway par 4 that measures 429 yards from the blue tees. Rated as one of the toughest holes in Southern California, mid-to-high handicappers should hit a high percentage tee shot and play the hole as a short par 5. Long ball hitters should favor the left side. The ball will kick to the right, so you may want to add a half to full club for an uphill approach shot.

 
X
1

Hole #2

A dogleg left reachable hole for long hitters if the tees are up or you have the wind at your back. A right to left tee shot is ideal. Add a half-to-full club for an uphill approach shot. The green is a little faster than you think, if you are putting.

 
X
2

Hole #3

The ideal tee shot here is a driver aimed at the left greenside bunker. This gives you a flat lie and takes the right bunker out of play on the second shot. If you lay-up, leave yourself 150-160 yards to avoid a downhill lie. The green slopes severely downhill, so try to stay below the hole for an uphill putt.

 
X
3

Hole #4

This is a challenging and lengthy 584-yard par 5 that is reachable downwind in the wintertime. Be careful of the out of bounds on the second and approach shots. Long hitters try to lay-up 90-100 yards to avoid the fairway bunker left center. Subtract half a club for your approach.

 
X
4

Hole #5

Favor the right center on the tee shot. Long hitters may entertain a fairway wood off the tee. The middle and front of the green slopes downhill, so try to stay below the hole for uphill putts.

 
X
5

Hole #6

Subtract 5-10 yards for this challenging downhill par 3. Hitting the green is a must. Favor the right portion of the green. If you pull it left, it will kick left and you might end up in the outhouse.

 
X
6

Hole #7

Hole number 7, one of Knollwood’s most scenic holes, is a 380-yard par 4. Favor right center on the tee shot. Add half a club for an approach shot to well-bunkered green. If the pin is back, try to stay below the hole.

 
X
7

Hole #8

Add 5-10 yards for this uphill par 3. Favor the left side of the green to avoid the bunker. A miss to the right could hit the cart path and end up on Knollwood Drive.

 
X
8

Hole #9

A challenging par 4…known as “Cardiac Hill” to walkers. Long hitters may consider a 3 wood to take the fairway bunker and the ledge on the right out of play. Add a full club for an uphill approach shot. Favor the left on your approach shot… a miss to the right could be the beginning of a high number. The green slopes from back to front.

 
X

OUT

Hole #10

A very difficult, short par 4. A 200 yard lay-up is ideal. Aim to the right of the pin on the approach…the ball kicks left. It’s tough to get the ball close on the well-sloped green.

 
X
10

Hole #11

A very reachable uphill par 5. Add a half-to-full club for the approach shot. The green breaks left from below the hole.

 
X
11

Hole #12

Long hitters lay-up short of the fairway bunkers or blow it over the corner of the cart path. Add 5-10 yards to the approach shot. The large green slopes moderately from back to front.

 
X
12

Hole #13

Add a half-to-full club for this uphill par 3, which is one of the most difficult greens on the course. The ball breaks more than you think it will when putting across the green. Also, beware of the speed when you are above the hole.

 
X
13

Hole #14

A reachable par 4 for long hitters. Beware the small hazard with rocks 10 yards short of the green. A 200 yard lay-up is sufficient…. guard against fairway bunkers on the right.

 
X
14

Hole #15

A difficult dogleg left if the tees are to the left. A 3-wood or driver with a draw is the shot you want. If you are a slicer, try a 5-wood over the corner. The approach shot is downhill, so subtract some yardage… especially if you are on the left near the 150 marker.

 
X
15

Hole #16

A reachable par 5 measuring 502 yards from the blue tees. Watch fairway bunker on right side for second shot. The ball kicks to the left on approach shot. Stay below and to the left of the pin if it’s tucked right.

 
X
16

Hole #17

This short par 3 hole, measuring 126 yards from the blue tees, should be played a full club shorter than the yardage. Don’t let the short yardage fool you—you might end up in one of the eight bunkers surrounding the green.

 
X
17

Hole #18

An easy, downhill par 4 measuring 371 from the blue tees. Long hitters should hug the right side to see the pin on the approach. Don’t worry about the fairway bunker on the left, there is room long and left. The green is very deep, so pay attention to pin position. It breaks less than it appears.
