Red Apple Course Guide and Pro Tips

Choose a Hole


1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18


Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-1

Hole One

PAR 5 | HCP 13/10

Take drive directly at the water tower for ideal approach position. Don’t worry about the driving range; it is not OB.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 525  |  White: 493  |  Red: 390  |  Green: 378

Hole Two

PAR 3 | HCP 17/18

This is our signature hole. Enjoy the beauty. This shot, depending on the wind, is usually a 2-club difference.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 166  |White: 157  |Red: 131  |Green: 130
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-2
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-3

Hole Three

PAR 4 | HCP 8/6

Take whatever club you need to hit to make sure you hit the fairway. A solid tee shot will leave you with a mid to low iron into this green.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 413  |  White: 357  |  Red: 304  |  Green: 272

Hole Four

PAR 4 | HCP 3/4

Best risk/reward hole on the course. For “long bombers”, take your tee shot directly over the pond which will leave you inside 100 yards to the green. To play it safe, hit a club off the tee that you can hit around 200 yards. This will leave you between 125-150 yards into this green.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 363  |  White: 350  |  Red: 330  |  Green: 264
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-4
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-5

Hole Five

PAR 3 | HCP 16/16

Wind coming off the lake makes this play true to its yardage. A shot to the middle of the green is the ideal play.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 188  |  White: 155  |  Red: 126  |  Green: 120

Hole Six

PAR 4 | HCP 10/2

Tee shots on this slight dogleg right tend to feed left off the hill. Try to position yourself below the hole on this difficult green.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 384  |  White: 357  |  Red: 337  |  Green: 249
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-6
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-7

Hole Seven

PAR 4 | HCP 7/12

This is a blind tee shot, up the hill. The best play from the tee is to land at the 150 yard marker for a level lie on your second shot to the green.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 389  |  White: 361  |  Red: 301  |  Green: 263

Hole Eight

PAR 5 | HCP 14/14

Don’t let the short par 5 fool you. To play it safe, hit your tee shot straight away to leave yourself 225 yards in. If you feel confident, try to take some more off, but be careful.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 470  |  White: 455  |  Red: 423  |  Green: 400
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-8
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-9

Hole Nine

PAR 4 | HCP 1/8

Welcome to the #1 handicap hole on the course. A straight and solid tee shot to the center of the fairway is essential. Approach shots will normally play at least 1 club longer to the uphill green.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 415  |  White: 400  |  Red: 352  |  Green: 293

Hole Ten

PAR 3 | HCP 18/15

This picturesque short par 3 is not as easy as it looks. The tee shot usually plays a club shorter but the green slopes towards the bunker on the right.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 172  |  White: 155  |  Red: 135  |  Green: 122
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-10
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-11

Hole Eleven

PAR 5 | HCP 9/1

This par 5 is another risk/reward hole. You can hit a conservative tee shot to leave you about 225 yards from the green. Or, you can get aggressive and try to test your luck at taking it over the trees that could leave you under 200 yards to the green.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 491  |  White: 453  |  Red: 425  |  Green: 395

Hole Twelve

PAR 3 | HCP 15/17

Favor the right side of this elevated green. Everything slopes to the left.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 160  |  White: 147  |  Red: 136  |  Green: 128
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-12
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-13

Hole Thirteen

PAR 4 | HCP 6/7

Safe drive is left of center of the fairway to avoid trees on the right, but you must avoid the fairway bunker on the left.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 406  |  White: 390  |  Red: 304  |  Green: 284

Hole Fourteen

PAR 5 | HCP 11/11

This is a demanding par 5. Your tee shot needs to be in the fairway to have a clean shot at the green. Trees overhanging the fairway make the second shot very difficult.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 525  |  White: 492  |  Red: 417  |  Green: 388
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-14
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-15

Hole Fifteen

PAR 4 | HCP 5/9

Arguably the hardest hole on the course, for the best scoring chance, play conservative off the tee to position yourself around 150 yards out. Anything more could be detrimental.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 356  |  White: 340  |  Red: 252  |  Green: 252

Hole Sixteen

PAR 3 | HCP 12/13

This long par 3 plays to a difficult green. There are bunkers guarding this green. There is a dramatic slope in the middle of the green. A solid tee shot to the correct side of this green is essential.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 203  |  White: 174  |  Red: 137  |  Green: 128
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-16
Red-Apple-Golf-Hole-17

Hole Seventeen

PAR 4 | HCP 4/5

A solid tee shot on this hole will leave you with a mid-iron to a well-guarded green.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 403  |  White: 374  |  Red: 320  |  Green: 305

Hole Eighteen

PAR 4 | HCP 2/3

This is a wonderful finishing hole. This long, narrow par 4 requires a long and precise tee shot to leave you with a chance to get on the green in regulation.

Tee Box Yardage

Gold: 422  |  White: 408  |  Red: 353  |  Green: 311
