Hole 1 – Timacuan Pines
Favor the left side off the tee. The green complex features collars that slope off sharply in front of, behind, and to the right of the green, an errant shot into this green cam make for a difficult up and down.
Hole 2 – Burial Ground
Play toward the 150 yard marker. With water and sand to the left of this green, the safe play is to stay well right where a generous collection area absorbs any errant shot.
Accuracy is crucial here as hazards run along both sides of this reachable Par 5. Green slopes severely from the back left to the fron right.
Hole 4 – Rising Mounds
Proper club selection is important on the first and longest Par 3 at Timacuan. Choose enough club to carry all the way up to this elevated green. The green slopes back to front and drops off severely on the front right corner. Par is a good score here.
Hole 5 – Open Valley
Long hitters can challenge this green in two, but a small green is guarded by the deepest bunker on the golf course that is certain to swallow up any shor that comes up short.
Hole 6 – Medicine Bowl
One of the longest Par 4’s on the golf course, hole #6 benfits from the most generous fairway at Timacuan. Avoid going right on the approach as a large bunker guards the green both to the right and long.
Hole 7 – Desert Island
Any errant shot is almost certain to find a giant bunker that surrounds the entire green.
Hole 8 – Crane’s Bluff
The longest Par 4 on the golf course is a slight dogleg to the left. A tee shot up the left side will make this monster of a hole play slightly shorter, however a large bunker just left of the fairway makes cutting the corner a very risky choice. The downhill approach into this huge green plays a few yards shorter than it measures.
Hole 9 – Lone Pine
As you tee off from the highest point on the golf course, the longer your drive on this hole, the more accurate it must be. The small putting surface slopes considerably from back to front, and is protected by a deep bunker on the left and a lone pine to the right.
Hole 10 – Commanche’s Cove
Two lakes along the left side of this fairway come into play off the tee, while any approach that veers too far rights is likely to find the large lake that surrounds the right side of this Par 4.
Hole 11 – Sand Pine Pass
This is the shortest of the Par 4’s at Timacuan, however an accurate tee shot is a must. The small putting surface is protected by severe slopes short and to the left of the green.
Hole 12 – Apache Bend
The preferred tee shot will draw slightly around the corner and leave you with a wood or long iron into a tiny green. Two large bunkers guard the front right and left side of the green, so a precise approach is crucial to give you the best opportunity for birdie or eagle.
Hole 13 – Sleeping Oaks
The shortest Par 3 on the golf course. A miss to the right side of the green will most likely find a large bunker, while a miss to the left may find your ball out of bounds, or leave you with a very difficult up and down from well above the putting surface.
Hole 14 – Canoe Crossing
Placement is the key on this short Par 4. A long drive is not necessarily a good thing here, as you may find yourself blocked out by a large tree on the left, or flirting with a large fairway bunker on the right. From the ideal landing area, you will be left with a mid to short iron approach to the flattest putting surface at Timacuan.
Hole 15 – Timacuan’s Revenge
The final Par 5 at Timacuan provides you with one of the most challenging tee shots you will ever find. A forced carry over a large lake is made even more difficult with water coming into play on both sides of the fairway. A well-struck tee shot will allow long hitters to challenge this green in two. An ideal lay up area for everyone else is just left of two fairway bunkers. This will leave you with one hundred yards left into a narrow green that slopes from back to front.
Hole 16 – Eagle Point
The signature hole at Timacuan, a long Par 3 over water provides one of the most beautiful, and nerve-racking tee shots you can imagine. With trees to the left of the green and water wrapping around all three other sides, this hole can be incredibly unforgiving.
Hole 17 – Trail of Tears
The safest tee shot is a shorter shot just left of the fairway bunker that will leave you with around 125 yards left into this green. If you are feeling brave, you can challenge the lake and cut off a chunk of this risk reward hole. A generous collection area to the left of this green provides you with a simple pitch shot and better chance of getting up and down.
Hole 18 – Journey’s End
An ideal tee shot is down the right side, as any shot down the left side is certain to get swallowed up by a stand of trees, or a large fairway bunker that hides just around the corner. A large bunker guards the left side of the putting surface. Par is a good score on this closing hole.
