The Dye Course opens with this short par 4. Tee shots to the right center of the fairway are best. Big hitters do not need the driver as a long tee shot only brings the water on the right into play. An approach to the left center of the green usually leads to par. Dye Lake, the largest lake on the course, is filled with reclaimed water. By irrigating with reclaimed water, we are conserving fresh water resources.

The short, treacherous par 3, whether playing downwind or into the wind, is equally challenging. The right front corner of the green is the best place for your tee shot, but shots to the left side are also well received. Many species of ducks can be seen on Dye Lake throughout the year including Hooded Mergansers, Ring-necked Ducks, American Wigeons, teals and Lesser Scaups.

The reachable par 5 requires a tee shot down the right side of the fairway as the mounding on the left will stop a rolling drive. If you lay-up, stick to the left side. Avoid the pot bunker fronting the two-tiered green. If the flagstick is back, a bump and run shot works great. The mixed hardwood forest to the left of the green is part of the community conservation area and provides habitat for a diversity of wildlife.

The dogleg right requires a left to right tee shot. The fairway bunkers on the right side are more in play than they appear to be from the tee. Play the approach shot slightly left of center to avoid the bunker on the right. The green slopes from back to front. The conservation area continues along this hole's left side. Deer, fox and rabbits are commonly seen in the area.

A drive down the right center of the fairway is best on this par 5. Long hitters can cut the corner and reach in two, but most players lay up their second shots with a mid-iron. Keep approach shots under the hole as this green slopes from back to front. Hooded Mergansers and other waterfowl can often be seen in the drainage pond on the left side of this fairway.

Keep your tee shot left of center on this par 4. The hole plays uphill and, especially into the wind, longer than the yardage. The downhill approach is to a green that slopes away from you, making stopping the ball very tough. If you go long, you'll face a very difficult pitch.

The green on this par 3 has a very small landing area. The front right corner is the preferred spot unless the pin is back. The tees aim you to the right, so be sure you're aligned correctly. A shot hit short and right of the green is actually a good play. The birdbox to the right of the tees provides a home for Eastern Bluebirds and other cavity-nesting birds. Twenty-one nesting boxes have been placed throughout the course.

This par 4 has a two-tiered fairway. Shots lost to the right leave a very difficult second shot to the elevated green. A good tee shot leaves a mid- to long-iron approach. If the wind is with you, the approach is shorter. Getting close to a back right pin can be treacherous. One of two populations of fox squirrels can often be seen on this hole. Look for the other one on the driving range as you make the turn.

Prepare for the Dye Course's most difficult tee shot. A fairway wood or a long iron should help you avoid the left side and find the small landing area. The two-tiered green has a slight false front. Approach shots play shorter than the yardage, but if you come up short and right, a very difficult pitch awaits.

What you see is what you get on this par 3. Play to the right center of the green regardless of the pin position. Getting up and down from the left bunker can be very difficult, so try to make birdie on another hole and safely get your par here. There is a large population of woodpeckers throughout the course and they are particularly fond of this hole. The large conservation area adjacent to the course protects the longleaf pine forest, a vital habitat for the endangered Red-Cockaded Woodpecker.

On this long par 4, tee shots to the right center of the fairway that avoid the bunker work best. If the pin is on the front of this large green, a high approach shot is required as bump and run shots are not well received. The water on the right should not be a concern.

Driver is fine on this short par 4, but not necessary. Big hitters can reach the water on the left. A solid tee shot will leave a pitching or sand wedge approach. Any ball that lands on the back-to-front sloping green with a lot of spin will draw back quite a distance. The emergent plants and grasses at the edge of the pond to the left of this green provide a buffer from fertilizer and pesticide run-off as well as valuable habitat for waterfowl, wading birds and amphibians.

This par 3 is the most challenging hole on the course. It requires a very precise tee shot to a three-tiered green.

You can shorten this long dogleg right by playing to the right side, but the lie could be awkward. Lies are best left of the fairway's center. The downhill approach plays slightly shorter than the yardage, but if you come up short, a difficult pitch remains. Chipping from left of the green is also challenging.

The double-tiered green on this par 3 is well bunkered on the left. Play to the right of the pin on all shots. This hole is also very exposed to the wind and plays very long if the wind is in your face. If you miss, miss to the right. The tall grasses, emergent plants and shrubs around the pond behind the green provide buffer from runoff.

This tee shot landing area is very generous. The hole plays to the yardage even though the second shot is downhill. The well-bunkered and undulated green requires the most accurate second shot on the course. The safe play is to land short and run the ball to the center of the green. The pond to the left of the trees is home to mallards and other waterfowl. Howe's Creek can be seen behind the green.

This slight dogleg left features an uphill tee shot. The approach shot is closely framed by oak and pine trees. Avoid flying the green; chipping back is a challenge. A left second shot or an approach high enough to avoid the tree guarding the green. The forested wetland behind the trees provides habitat for a diversity of wildlife. The nesting box just past the cooler is home to bluebirds.

Long hitters can reach in two, but the second shot must have a high enough trajectory. Smart players will lay up the second shot right of the green and play a pitch to the hole. Notice the nest box to the left of the cart path at the 100-yard marker. Most of the nest boxes activly fledge young every year.

Trees and marsh surround this two-tierd green. Take an extra club when the pin is back. The marsh is very close to the green's left side. The only bail out is right, but there is another hazard even further to the right.

If you aren't sure, play to the back of the green and take your chances chipping. The grove of trees between the black and blue tees is a common nesting site for osprey.

Trees split the fairway of this reachable par 5. Staying left from the tee is safer. Play your second shot to the well-guarded green or just short of it. A tee shot to the right fairway is riskier, but you'll face a straighter approach. Bunker shots from around the green aren't that difficult because all pin positions are accessible. The wetlands in front of the trees are home to swan, egrats and red-winged blackbirds.

The second shot is played over the marsh to a wide green protected by water hazard on three sides: front, left and beyond. The natural vegetation of the wetland surrounding most of the green provides a natural buffer for the pond.
