The Golf Club at Vistoso

Course Fly-Over


Hole #1
Prickly Pear

Par 4


A straight forward opening hole with a wide fairway and a fairly level green guarded by a lone bunker.

Hole #2
Double Cross
Par 5


A classic risk/reward par 5.  A dangerous tee shot to the upper right side of the landing area provides a chance to get home in two, while the conservative three shot strategy will leave only a short wedge approach.


Hole #3
Tillinghast
Par 3


Most players misclub long on this hole, especially with front pin locations.


Hole #4
Mesquite
Par 4


The key is to lay well back of the namesake mesquite tree which sits in the middle of the fairway about 65 yards short of the green.


Hole #5
Desert Island
Par 4


Avoid the "desert island" to the left side of the fairway and be thankful for a mid-iron approach shot.


Hole #6
Quartz Hill
Par 5


Reachable in two by only the longest hitters, others should play for a safe second shot over the desert wash.


Hole #7
Vista Ridge
Par 3


A shallow green that sits exposed on a knoll requires careful consideration of the wind when selecting a club.


Hole #8
Waterfall
Par 4


Avoid tee shots to the left which will require an approach almost completly over water.


Hole #9
Hidden Green
Par 4


This hole demands a long carry off the tee, but drives in the fairway leave only a short iron to this "hidden green".


Hole #10
Sleeping Snake
Par 4


There is a lot of room to the right of the tree and the bunker which you see from the tee.



Hole #11
Saguaro
Par 4


The strategiacally placed saguaro compounds this hole's length making par a great score here.


Hole #12
Pusch Ridge
Par 5


Don't be tricked into a drive to the left as the right center is the place to be off the tee.  Club carefully to avoid the bunkers on a lay-up.



Hole #13
Devil's Nest
Par 3


Shots hit on the green but short will release to the hole on this firm green.

 


Hole #14
Risky
Par 4


While a well-struck tee shot hit directly at the hole can get you home, a lay-up shot to the end of the left fairway will leave you right at 100 yards from the hole.  A classic risk/reward shot, choose wisely.


Hole #15
Vibora
Par 3


This long par 3 presents a wide variety of recovery options for golfers who miss the green to the left.


Hole #16
Side Winder
Par 5


A three shot hole for just about everyone.  A good drive will set up a lay-up just short of the wash.


Hole #17
Javelina
Par 3


The slopes of this green can make it difficult to determine the proper pace on most putts.


Hole #18
Sunset
Par 5


A good drive just left of the aiming bunker leaves 230 yards to the hole and a chance to get home in two.
