The challenging 7,000 yard, 18 hole championship course, with its lightning fast bent grass greens will both test the abilities of the low handicap player and simultaneously provide a distinct challenge at a world-class venue for the distinctive Private Country Club Member.
Hole 1 ----- Par 5 ----- 505 YARDS
If ever there was a chance to get off to a good start, it would be at the first hole at Crystalaire. Measuring 505 yards from the regular tees (526 from the tips), it is a moderately easy Par 5 that most of the low handicappers will reach in 2. A Par or birdie gets the player off to a very good start.
Hole 2 ----- Par 4 ----- 415 YARDS
This hole is known as the "Goal-post" hole. At 415 yards, this is the third longest Par 4 on the course.
Hole 3 ----- Par 4 ----- 411 YARDS
The saying "Drive for show, Putt for dough" does not apply on this 411 yard Par 4 3rd at Crystalaire. Although both are very important on this hole, the drive is especially important if any success is expected on this demanding hole.
Hole 4 ----- Par 4 ----- 339 YARDS
Although ranked as the second easiest on the course, #4 at Crystalaire can be deceivingly tough if the proper shots are not struck. Although short in yardage and ranked fairly easy, this hole has its share of problems and if played improperly, could turn a good round bad.
Hole 5 ----- Par 5 ----- 561 YARDS
The longest hole at Crystalaire at 561 yards (579 from the tips), #5 is rated the third toughest at Crystalaire for men as well as number one for women. Every shot at this demanding Par 5 has the potential to find some sort of trouble.
Hole 6 ----- Par 3 ----- 150 YARDS
Although not the most difficult hole at Crystalaire, golfers tend to tighten their collars a bit when they reach this most scenic Par 3. Not a long hole but one that should not be taken lightly.
Hole 7 ----- Par 4 ----- 437 YARDS
The longest of the Par 4's at Crystalaire, Hole #7 appears to be rather simple but a closer look will show that even the best players could have trouble with this great hole.
Hole 8 ----- Par 3 ----- 152 YARDS
Coming up short is a common problem on this 152 yard Par 3 hole. Selecting the right club and then achieving proper execution is most important if a Par is to be had on this sneaky difficult Par 3.
Hole 9 ----- Par 4 ----- 366 YARDS
Playing straight back to the Clubhouse, this 366 yard Par 4 plays longer than the indicated yardage. Make Par here, hit the snack bar and then it's off to the back nine.
Hole 10 ----- Par 4 ----- 396 YARDS
The 10th hole at Crystalire goes directly away from the Clubhouse. But beware, this Par 4 has more ways to get you than it appears.
Hole 11 ----- Par 3 ----- 131 YARDS
The shortest of the Par 3's at Crystalaire, this hole gives the player a chance to keep that good back nine going. Although short and rated the easiest hole on the course, this Par 3 cannont be taken for granted.
Hole 12 ----- Par 5 ----- 535 YARDS
A good drive is the key to success on this demanding Par 5 hole. The longer hitters can reach this downwind hole in two but all it takes is one errant shot to make this Par 5 a struggle.
The number 13 is an unlucky number for many people and the 13th hole at Crystalaire can prove to be unlucky as well for the golfer that tries to get too aggressive with this short 356 yard Par 4. Rated the 12th hardest hole, a lot of high numbers have been recorded by those trying to take the short cut.
Hole 13 ----- Par 4 ----- 356 YARDS
Hole 14 ----- Par 4 ----- 428 YARDS
Every course has its turning point and the 14th is Crystalaire's. Golfers finish the 13th and then must head back into the wind for the next four holes, starting with 14. At 428 yards from the regular tees, it is the second longest Par 4 on the course and any extra head wind makes it even longer. For the average golfer, a score of 5 here is a good start to four very tough holes.
Hole 15 ----- Par 3 ----- 204 YARDS
The longest of the Par 3's at Crystalaire, Hole #15 is everything you could ask for in a Par 3. The length forces most players to hit a long iron or fairway wood to a green that is surrounded by nothing but problems.
Hole 16 ----- Par 4 ----- 406 YARDS
The third of the four into the wind finishing holes at Crystalaire, hole #16 can be played one of two ways. Hole #16 is all a player could ask for in a Par 4.
Hole 17 ----- Par 4 ----- 333 YARDS
At first glance, the 17th at Crystalaire appears to be that long-awaited breather. At 333 yards, it is the shortest of the Par 4's and is rated the 14th easiest. But golfers beware, trouble lurks for those that take this hole too lightly. There have been many a horror story told after this hole has been completed.
Hole 18 ----- Par 5 ----- 504 YARDS
If ever there were a hole that could produce that great finish, it's #18 at Crystalaire. At just over 500 yards, this Par 5 is definitely reachable by the longer hitters and even the short hitters are hitting their third from inside 100 yards. We hope you enjoyed your round at Crystalaire.
