#2 Creston’s “road hole”. A tough uphill par 4. Challenge the out-of-bounds with a center right tee shot and you’re rewarded with the best angle into the flat (by Creston standards), firm green with subtle breaks. A high 2nd … More Details

#3 A tee shot right of the large pine tree gives a good angle for your 2nd shot. Long hitters can go left of the pine, over the bunker, to leave a simple uphill pitch to a difficult green. A little local knowledge helps with… More Details

#9 Rebuilt in 2006, this short hole replaces the old #9 (with a green as severe as any on a US open course). Most locals feel the new green isn’t that … More Details

#10 One tough par 3. The easiest up and down is from short of the hole. It’s difficult from… More Details

Image Not Available#11 Par 5 516 468 435 435

#11 A very forgiving driving hole, if you don’t go left, and an easy par 5 if you can figure out the subtleties of the green. Most putts break … More Details

Image Not Available #12 Par 4 353 343 295 295

#12 A truly dramatic dogleg par 4. Some go for the green but most locals only do that in scrambles, having lost many balls in the attempt. Off the tee, the hole presents two relatively… More Details

#13 This green has two tiers, right and left. Putting from the wrong tier may be hazardous to your score. “Members’ bounces” abound, including an… More Details

#14 The pond is 205 yards off the white tee on this dogleg right. The middle of the fairway, short of the pond is your most level lie. Driving over the pond yields a better… More Details

#15 Most locals play short of the ditch 180-190 yards off the white tees, for a level approach to a flat, firm green not visible from this landing area. Long hitters sometimes… More Details

#16 A difficult drive, a difficult 2nd shot, and a difficult putt and you’ve just birdied Creston’s toughest par 4, (Locally thought to be one the hardest holes in… More Details
