Caddie's Summary:  We love this course. The front side is unique and offers a couple of rare holes like the Par 3 #6 that is only about 150yd long but has elevate tees of over 90-100feet; or the Par 4 #5 with a V-shaped fairway (see photos). The back side is wonderfully designed, offering challenge and a beautiful stroll through naturally wooded landscape. Greens vary from small 17yd deep postage stamps to large 47yd deep landing strips. The course has a well-rounded feel that keeps the golf interesting as lakes and creeks and trees keep the player in tune the hole round. Conditioning is good, and with fairways running fast, ball striking is a must from the tees. Nearly every hole has a major fairway slant, incline, decline or all of the above, resulting in the need for placement and shot selection. Crooked Creek is far from boring, and we highly recommend a visit if in the area.

Water hazard on the left comes into play at 205yd from CG and cuts well into the fairway by 150yd CG. Bunker on the right ends at 134yd from CG. Fairway sharply narrows thereafter with ditch on the right at 100yd from CG. Slight fairway slant left and drives should hug the right bunkers - longer gets tighter.

Dogleg right at 130yd from CG. From Platinum tees, 210yd of carry carries the right bunker. Drives with fade are best but 265yd plus takes you through the fairway (to a bunker or rough) unless a heavy fade is played. Also an option of a long iron off tee played between bunkers leaving less than 150yd to CG. Approach to a 25yd deep green over a creek. All gently flows tot he front. Front right corner releases gently long. Ridge on left edge at 80% depth slopes to the front or long over the top.

Fairway cuts off at 195yd CG to deep rough hazard. Out of Bounds right. Fairway picks up again to the right of the first fairway section and inclines to 70yd CG with 15ft bank to heavy rough along left edge. Second shots normally are played to the right side of fairway where the slant kicks it left. Downhill to the green. Long hitters can go for green in two with misses just right and short of the green kicking forward and left. 28yd deep green angling left. Right 1/3 slopes to the front right.

Fairway bunkers on the right end at 100yd from CG (252 to carry from the Gold tees). 12yd left of the fairway is OB.

Par 5

Gold 502
Silver 468
If you really want to press your luck and try to reach in two, you'll (unless a 350yd driver plus) need to play at the large trees on the right (220yd from CG) - however, OB is only 20yd to the right. That will give the option of fading second shot around the corner. More sensible, left of the trees down the fairway (+285yd from Platinum tees goes through fairway to hazard rough). Creek snakes through the fairway between 150-100yd from CG. Second shots play between bunker on the left (beginning at 100yd from CG) and the creek along the right. 34yd deep green - bunker guards the front. Mound on the midline in the front releases left or right. Mound on the left at 50% releases right or hard long over the top. Back 40% slopes right or left from the midline.
