   #10 Par 5      
  #10 hole

This par 5 requires a game plan that will be dictated by the tee shot.

A big one over the left center of the fairway bunker may afford a go at the green that is guarded by waterfront, left, and right!

Playing this as a 3 shot hole is the smart play, but take care not to be short on your approach as the bank fronting the green is closely mown and balls will roll back toward the water.

   #11 Par 4   
  #11 hole

A series of “church pew” bunkers guards the right side of the fairway and can present all kinds of problems.

The left side of the fairway opens up the approach to this well bunkered green that slopes from back to front.

   #12 Par 4   
  #12 hole

The only totally rebuilt hole at Kingsway.

The massive waste area down the left side ends just before the fairway slopes to a lower level.

Accuracy over length will avoid the two fairway bunkers and set up the short approach to the small elevated green surrounded on three sides by a gaping bunker.

Take care on this green; many putts are difficult to read, as the slope is more than it may appear.

   #13 Par 3  
  #13 hole

This par 3 will get your attention.

No bunkers, but water left and plenty of length, especially from the back tees.

A prudent miss to the right will leave a chip shot to a green that slopes away from you.

Par is a good score.

   #14 Par 4   
  #14 hole

A dogleg left that requires some thought.

The tee shot must avoid the water left and the bunkers right.

Driver is not necessary here, but if you are hitting it long and straight, let it rip and attack with a short iron approach.

The back left pin position is the most challenging; take care if it’s there!

   #15 Par 5  
  #15 hole

This picturesque par 5 is the signature hole at Kingsway; Decisions, decisions…..

Water all down the left and 3 bunkers on the right catch your eye from the tee.

A big tee shot can give you an opportunity to go for it with a long, high shot over the second lake.

As a three shot hole, play the second shot toward the fairway bunker on the left in order to avoid the waste area protecting the right side. The green is elevated and fronted by two bunkers, negotiate all of the above and be met by a green with multiple slopes, with the back right pin being most difficult.

Take your par and run……

   #16 Par 3  
  #16 hole

The last of the par 3’s.

To negotiate this shallow green, the tee shot must be high and soft.

First get over the water and carry the front bunker, then stop it before reaching the back bunker.

Not too difficult from the forward tees, but the #1 and #2 tees will present a real test from approximately 200 yards.

Beware of the extreme right pin placement, it plays longer than the yardage.

   #17 Par 4   
  #17 hole

Out of Bounds down the left side, a 90-yard bunker and water on the right, no real problem, just hit it straight!

The approach tends to play a little longer than it looks and bunkers both front and back protect the green.

Be straight, be accurate, and be rewarded.

   #18 Par 4   
  #18 hole

This par 4 offers up more options than any other hole on the course.

Choose carefully because a loose shot can result in bogey or worse. The fairway is flanked on both sides with waste area filled with trees, native grasses and other plantings.

The tee shot can be laid back into the widest part of the fairway but will require a much longer approach.

The landing area at 250 yards is less than 20 yards wide so accuracy is key if you take this route.

Many a bet is lost to a macho attitude on this hole.

Avoid the front pot bunker and the two bunkers left and right of the green with a shot kept below the hole for an uphill putt.

Make your par and head for the Grille Room.
