Robert Cupp Course

Robert Cupp Course Tour

  • Hole 1

    Par 4

    Ideal opening hole. Not long with generous landing area.

  • Hole 2

    Par 5

    Marsh bordering both sides of the landing area. Water may be reachable from the tee.

  • Hole 3

    Par 4

    Carry the wetland from the tee or play safe toward the bunkers on the left.

  • Hole 4

    Par 3

    Well protected green with little room for error. Water and sand guard the green left.

  • Hole 5

    Par 4

    Plenty of water left off the tee. The bailout area is to the right.

  • Hole 6

    Par 5

    Good par 5 with spacious landing area. Pyramid mounding bordering the right side.

  • Hole 7

    Par 4

    Strong par 4 that demands accuracy. Water and wetlands guard the left side with out of bounds on the right.

  • Hole 8

    Par 3

    Short par 3 with small green that has a severe undulation. Misplaced tee shot will leave you a difficult pitch or putt.

  • Hole 9

    Par 4

    This hole features the deepest green on the course. Water is reachable from the forward tees.

  • Hole 10

    Par 5

    A par 5 that is reachable in two for only the big hitters. The drive must avoid the fairway bunkers. Smart play is to lay up short of the pond guarding the green.

  • Hole 11

    Par 4

    Dynamite short par 4. Tee shot must carry the wetland and fairway undulations. Large bunker guarding a horseshoe-shaped green.

  • Hole 12

    Par 3

    The longest par 3. Stay away of the left side of this hole. Use and extra club off the tee. This green is Cupp's perfect circle !

  • Hole 13

    Par 4

    Scenic hole where you must avoid the water to the left. Mounding to the right will help keep you in play.

  • Hole 14

    Par 4

    A par 4 that is known for the geometrically shaped fairway and greenside bunkers. A good tee shot will leave a short iron left.

  • Hole 15

    Par 5

    With a good tee shot, you might reach this green in two. However, the smart play might be to lay it up short avoiding the bunkers guarding the green.

  • Hole 16

    Par 3

    A demanding par 3 guarded by water short and to the right. Also framed by bunkers to the left. Bailing into the bunkers on the left will leave you a challenging sand shot!

  • Hole 17

    Par 4

    Stay clear of the water on the right and position your tee shot left. You will have a difficult pitch shot if you come up short of the green.

  • Hole 18

    Par 4

    Great finishing hole that requires a well-placed tee shot. Water is hidden behind the mounds on the right. Use enough club to reach the pin set on the right.
