#1 - The opener at the Donald Ross Course is one of our favorite opening holes so far
#4 - The first of many long challenging par 3's
#9 - This pictures shows the road that your tee shots carries over on the medium / short length par 4 9th. The road your tee ball carries over is also the main entrance to the course.
#9 - Dave's second shot to the elevated Par 4 9th - He dunked it for eagle
#11 - Be careful to avoid the bunkers on this tee shot. The Ross Course is well protected by them.
#13 - Another brutally tough par 3 - We loved how open and clean everything looked on The Ross Course
#14 - The Downhill Approach to the Par 4 14th hole. This pond was actually not in the original design.
#17 - Look at how severe the undulation is in the 17th green!
#18 - Many people believe this to be one of Donald Ross's finest finishing holes.
#18 - Jason's approach to the 18th green
