Course Tour

Hole One

The opening hole at Black Sands provides a nice opportunity to start your round off with a score of Par or better. Watch out for OB right and the pine trees surrounding the left side of the green.

Hole Two

The #1 handicap hole on the course is a longer par 4 that can change difficulty depending on the direction of the wind. OB borders the hole on the right and trees line the left side. Keep it on the right side of the fairway for a more open approach.

Hole Three

The difficulty of the first par 3 on the course is also dependent on the direction of the wind. Play for the center of the green on this one.

Hole Four

A blind tee shot up the hill into a dogleg to the right waits for you on the 4th hole. There is some risk/reward to cut the corner, but play the smart tee shot to the top of the hill for roughly 175 to 150 yards into the green.

Hole Five

Reachable par 4 with a wide-open tee shot – assuming you clear the initial trees that you will be required to carry. Your second shot into the small, sloped, and elevated green will require accuracy and touch. Stay below the hole if possible.

Hole Six

The only par 5 at Black Sands provides a great scoring opportunity, but be careful on your approach shot. The green is protected by water on the left and hazards behind and to the right.

Hole Seven

This hole seems straightforward but plays tougher than it looks, par is a good score here.

Hole Eight

Shorter par 4 with a fairway that slopes from right to left. Your tee shot will make or break you on this hole with trees right and hazard left.

Hole Nine

The closing hole is a short par 3 that will require your tee shot to carry the hazard area to an elevated two-tier green that slopes from back to front. Stay below the hole and you will have an enjoyable close to your round.
