Hole Number 4 – The fourth hole is a par five that bends to the left around a wide lake. After the tee shot, golfers reach the landing area where the lake and the green are fully exposed to view.
Hole Number 9 – At the ninth hole, the course runs parallel to Shadow Creek and plays from south to north with an orientation of the fairway to the mountains. Alternate tees on the left and right provide variety, and from the tee, the fairway appears to be rather tight, but there is plenty of room to play.
Hole Number 15 – The 15th plays back to the north alongside Shadow Creek. It meanders down the left side of the hole, then cuts diagonally across the fairway past the landing area and separates the fairway from the green, forcing golfers to carry the water on the approach.
Hole Number 17 – The 17th hole may be the most dramatic because of its setting. Here, golfers play down from one of several tees perched on top of a ridge to a green surrounded by rocks and water. Behind the green, a massive waterfall drops into a pool that cascades into a creek which then falls into the lake that fronts the green.
Hole Number 18 – In a way, the 18th hole is a combination of every golf shot, every design treatment and every setting created on the rest of the holes at Shadow Creek. Alternate tee positions are set into a high ridge to offer various angles on the tee shot. Water on the right flows from the green toward the tee into three lakes which are broken by three waterfalls.
