RUBY

Ruby-9 tests your course management skills with a combination of doglegs and small targets. Every hole offers a new challenge, from elevation changes and narrow tee shots, to sand and water hazards.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    Grip it and rip it! There is out-of-bounds left but this should not be a factor unless you really mess up. Big hitters may get home in 2, if not, be sure to leave yourself a short iron into this shallow green.

    Perhaps the toughest par 3 on our property. The yardage is true, even though this is downhill. Missing this green right leads to bogey at best.

    A short par 4 with a challenging approach. Your tee shot should at least reach the right corner of the fairway trap. Then a lofted club is needed to hold this firm, shallow green.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    The first priority on this tee is to check the wind. Due to the drop in elevation, plan on hitting one less club. If in doubt, bail out right where you at least have a chance for an “up and down”.

    The 5th is a secluded hole where wind is rarely a factor. The key here is hitting the fairway, as a shot from the rough will not likely hold this firm elevated green.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    A tee shot aimed slightly left of the 150-yard marker is perfect. Big hitters will hit a driver through the fairway so a fairway wood or long iron is a good choice here. Land your approach shot on the front of the green, allowing it to feed back to the pin.

    This is the start of our most difficult 3-hole stretch. In the distance, aim your tee shot at the birdhouse behind the green. Long and straight are the keys to reaching this green in regulation.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    A left pin position makes this a three-shot par 5. Avoid the fairway trap on the right when laying up. A close shot to the pin is required to prevent a long “roller coaster putt” on this undulating green.

    TIP FROM THE PRO

    A 3 on this hole is always a good score. Deer Creek’s third longest par 3’s difficulty is enhanced by water right, out-of-bounds left and two strategically placed bunkers. Short left is the only place to miss. Remember that the yardage is all carry.
