Jetsetters Magazine Golf MallThe hay-looking heather that is last remains from summer Bermuda distinctively borders rolling emerald bent grass fairways that were seeded for winter months in Rye. Highlighted with many new bunkers protecting angulating greens, it is landscaped with over 3,000 varying types of trees and acres of spectacularly designed lakes, as well as little gardens of natural desert rocks, plants and sand.
After beautiful first hole is behind you and you are loosened up, evils of Stallion Mountain are well upon you. Starting with Hole #2, named Hell Bunker, a short par 4 with 295 yards from middle (gold) tees is laced on both sides of fairway with sand traps. Therefore, a long iron or fairway wood properly positioned down left side will leave golfer with a wedge in to a long, but narrow green for a great birdie opportunity.
the number three handicapped is a 397-yard, par 4. Watch out for three fairway bunkers on right, therefore a well-positioned drive to left-center of fairway is your best bet. If you get over zealous and pull your drive, a row of trees skirting left side of fairway protects Daredevil from over-conservative shots. Your second shot is long to uphill and steep green. Long is better than short, so be daring and happy with a par.
