think about. If you miss the green, bail out left. This is a very nice hole.

over the canyon. If the pin is in the back, leave it alone.

Lakeview Country Club (Ephrata), Hole 3, Par 4, 425 yards

This hole is a dogleg right where you must resist the temptation to cut the corner. The out of bounds to the right and the overhanging trees seem to reach out and grab your ball. Left center will leave you with a nice angle for the approach to the green.

This hole doesn’t end until the ball comes to rest in the bottom of the hole. With the fairway slope, the longer hitters will want to play the ball to the right center and an average hitter should aim to the left center of the fairway. The approach shot is to a sloping green to the right; play the ball to the front left and let the ball run toward the hole. Good Luck.

Desert Canyon Golf Resort (Orondo), Hole 15 (Hole 6 Desert), Par 5, 690 yards

I have never played a hole that drops this much. From the tee you can see to Mission Ridge. This may be one of the best views ever. The best spot for your drive is in the middle. Sounds simple but with that much drop, there is a lot of hang time. A straight drive sets up the hole. Your second shot should favor the left side of the fairway to avoid the tree near the green (if you miss, be sure to miss right). This will leave a straight-in shot to the green. Forget the score, enjoy the view.

Back Nine – Par 36 – 3,674 yards One of the hazards at Desert Canyon.

Highlander Golf Course, Hole 9, Par 3, 178 yards

Another spectacular view, which will at least help distract you from the pain of hitting your ball off the cliff. Your best play here is to shoot for the center of the green no matter where the pin is located. The first objective is to hit enough club, get the ball

Creek Golf Course (Winthrop), 10 Bear Hole 5, Par 4, 419 yards

A straight-away drive off an elevated tee to a panoramic view of the surrounding area and tee shot. This hole finishes off to a rear-sloping green fronted by a depression.

Oroville Golf Course, Hole 5, Par 4, 388 yards

This is a visually difficult hole — dogleg left, narrow fairway and large overhanging
