Lee Trevino Course
The Trevino Signature Course is built along a hilly terrain with a variety of hole designs featuring ample landing zones and mostly elevated tee areas. There are 5 sets of tees that
play to distances and slopes that measure 7120 yards yards/136 slope, 6710 yards/132 slope, 6258 yards/128 slope, 5650 yards/129 slope for women and 5193 yards with a
slope of 124 for ladies hitting from the front tee areas. There are 72 strategically placed sand bunkers and water hazards come into play on 3 holes.
The first six holes play through woodlands with some tight driving holes, but the remainder of the layout is fairly open and not as undulating. The vistas from the elevated tees on
the first three holes are especially memorable. Several holes favor a left to right shot shape with careful placement necessary to navigate the strategic doglegs. For more info, visit
