Par 71 Hole 1,Par 5 Mens Handicap 13, Ladies Handicap 13 Yardages: Black Tees 485, White Tees 456, Yellow Tees 449, Red Tees 413 This is a straight away starting hole heading south with bunkers on both sides of the fairway in the driving area. Be aware of the sand bunker forty yards short of the green as it leaves a difficult approach. The small green tilts from front to back, going over or to the sides of the green make for a difficult recovery. Hole 2, Par 5 Men’s Handicap 3, Ladies Handicap 1 Yardages: Black Tees 542, White Tees 528, Yellow Tees 483, Red Tees 401 This is the longest hole at the O.C.C. The hole goes back to the north towards the clubhouse. There is a small fairway bunker on the left side of the landing area off the tee. The grass bunker one hundred and fifty yards away from the green has a high lip, which can make for a difficult, if not impossible, approach into the green. A lateral hazard runs down the right side from the one hundred fifty yard marker towards the green. The green complex has one sand bunker to the right side and a difficult grass bunker area to the left and behind the green. Hole 3, Par 3 Men’s Handicap 17, Ladies Handicap 11 Yardages: Black Tees 122, White Tees 115, Yellow Tees 107, Red Tees 100 The longest hole is followed by the shortest hole on the course. But don’t let the yardage fool you, this hole has ruined many scorecards over the years. The tee shot must carry the ravine, marked as a lateral water hazard, which runs from the tee box to the front edge of the green. The green complex is one of the most interesting on the course. It tilts from back to front and has tiers in the back left and right. Hole 4, Par 4 Men’s Handicap 11, Ladies Handicap 9 Yardages: Black Tees 340, White Tees 334, Yellow Tees 329, Red Tees 270 The most prominent feature on this hole is the fifty yard ravine in the tee shot’s landing area. You have to hit your tee shot about 250 yards to carry the ravine, which leaves a short pitch to the well designed green. You can layup short of the ravine, but it will lead to a longer second shot. The attractive green complex has one sand bunker on the front left hand side. The back pin positions are challenging as there is a steep drop off behind the green and to the left side of it. Hole 5, Par 4 Men’s Handicap 1, Ladies Handicap 3 Yardages: Black Tees 415, White Tees 400, Yellow Tees 369, Red Tees 303 This hole is a sharp dogleg to the left. The downhill tee shot presents the option for longer hitters to attempt to cut the corner by hitting over the trees to the fairway down the left side, reducing the length of the hole and making for a shorter approach shot. The green slopes from left to right and has a ridge running across the middle of it. There is a bunker on the front right and one behind the green. Hole 6, Par 4 Men’s Handicap 7, Ladies Handicap 7 Yardages: Black Tees 391, White Tees 385, Yellow Tees 354, Red Tees 354 This dogleg right par four has the fairway running straightaway from the tee to about 230 yards out. From there it moves to the right, with the fairway slanting away from the tee box, making it difficult to hit. There are plenty of trees on both sides of the fairway to contend with as well. The green sits slightly above the fairway level at the 150 yard mark. A grass cross-bunker sits fifty yards in front of the putting surface. The green is sloped from back to front with steep falloffs on both sides and to the rear of the green. Hole 7, Par 3 Men’s Handicap 9, Ladies Handicap 17 Yardages: Black Tees 160, White Tees 150, Yellow Tees 137, Red Tees 116 This is a unique and challenging par three that plays straight uphill, making it play longer than the yardage on the scorecard. The green is severely sloped from back to front. Getting up and down from anywhere except directly in front of the green is extremely difficult. There is a sand bunker on the left side of the green which is not visible from the tee box. Hole 8, Par 4 Men’s Handicap 15, Ladies Handicap 15 Yardages: Black Tees 376, White Tees 357, Yellow Tees 298, Red Tees 298 This is a straight away par four with a fairway bunker on the right side of the landing area. Out of bounds runs down the left hand side of the hole. Two large grass bunkers flank both sides of the front of the green. The wide green has a mound in the middle of it, making for three distinct pin areas; the front left and right and in the back of the green. Grass bunkers to the sides and behind the green make for challenging recoveries from those locations. Hole 9, Par 4 Men’s Handicap 5, Ladies Handicap 5 Yardages: Black Tees 417, White Tees 406, Yellow Tees 396, Red Tees 337 This is a dogleg left par four with Out of Bounds running down the left side of the hole. It is important to find the narrow fairway off the tee to have a clear shot to the green. The green complex has two deep grass bunkers on both sides of it and it is sloped from back to front. There is out of bounds behind the green at the parking lot. Hole 10, Par 4 Men’s Handicap 12, Ladies Handicap 10 Yardages: Black Tees 354, White Tees 346, Yellow Tees 337, Red Tees 295 A tree lined dogleg left par four with a greenside bunker located on the front right side of the green. A 200 to 225 yard tee shot down the middle will leave a 150 yard approach shot into the green. Out of bounds lies just to the right of the green at the edge of Chipman Road. Hole 11, Par 5 Men’s Handicap 10, Ladies Handicap 2 Yardages: Black Tees 485, White Tees 473, Yellow Tees 464, Red Tees 405 This tree lined, sharp dogleg left par five presents a real challenge off the tee. Longer hitters may try to hit their tee shot up and over the large maple tree and cut the corner of the dogleg to reduce the length of the hole and possibly have a putt for eagle. There is long native grass protecting the inside corner of the dogleg as well and plenty of other trees to negotiate while playing this hole. The small green presents a challenging target for your approach shot. Hole 12, Par 4 Men’s Handicap 4, Ladies Handicap 4 Yardages: Black Tees 419, White Tees 415, Yellow Tees 411, Red Tees 340 Number twelve is a dogleg right par four with two bunkers on each side of the green. The green is open in the front, allowing for run up shots onto the green. Hole 13, Par 4 Men’s Handicap 18, Ladies Handicap 14 Yardages: Black Tees 309, White Tees 303, Yellow Tees 265, Red Tees 265 This short par four has a “punchbowl” style green, a common feature design of golf course architects in the early 1900’s. The tee box is set at a tricky angle, making a draw off the tee the desired shape for the tee shot. The flat green is protected by two bunkers in the front. There is out of bounds directly behind this green. Hole 14, Par 4 Men’s Handicap 2, Ladies Handicap 6 Yardages: Black Tees 428, White Tees 422, Yellow Tees 381, Red Tees 326 Number fourteen is straight par four with out of bounds on the left hand side. Trees on both sides of the fairway can make it difficult to reach the green in regulation if your tee shot misses the fairway.

Dense woods and a steep slope are directly behind and to the right of the green. Hole 15, Par 3 Men’s Handicap 14, Ladies Handicap 16 Yardages: Black Tees 179, White Tees 174, Yellow Tees 168, Red Tees 168 This downhill par three is to a small, elevated green.
