Like many of modern day resort-style courses that use multiple tees, par-5, hole 11, Longfellow is another signature hole with double fairways. Broken by a natural island of desert landscape, players are forced to choose between two routes on their second shot. Although right fairway is recommended safer route to green, left fairway tempts amateurs and low handicappers alike with its obvious shorter distance and unobstructed approach to green. Satisfaction of this potential risk/reward gamble personifies Vegas and American spirits!
The initial design of course was an outstanding cooperative effort between Billy Casper, Greg Nash and Del Webb to route fairways in meandering trek while keeping homes well above ridge lines of course. This has successfully minimized impact of 4,755-acre master-planned community to golf experience while accentuating challenges of natural flow of land. Seclusion, serenity, uncrowded and well-planned sums up feeling a golfer gets when stepping their feet upon this sacred golf mecca.
The No. 6, North Church, 384-yard, par-4 is farthest point north on golf course. And, if you can stay out of bunkers on right, you won't have any trouble until you start your approach to green. That may be easier said than done! The bunkers are reachable in length with a driver and with right-to-left sloping fairway, temptation to aim a little farther right makes shot even more dangerous. But, then old "one-if-by-land, two-if-by-sea" bit takes on a whole new meaning. The "land" in this equation is a scary pot bunker hiding in back-right side of green. It could easily cost you a stroke. The "sea," on other hand, is lake that curls around green's front-right. Having "feel"with your wedge and proper distance control is essential to success here.

No. 12, named "One-If-By-Land," is a 422-yard, par-4 layout that creates an unique challenge. Bunkers boarder entire right side of fairway while golfer is staring down into Las Vegas Valley can distract, awe, and cause error if one is not careful. The topography makes green appear to be higher in back than it is in front. The golfer really needs to trust his distance, control, and accuracy here, too. In truth, green slopes away from you, making all skill elements very important.
