I was a member not long ago before i moved south.

If you are longish off the tee, think 260 plus, you don't really need to use driver on many holes, but there also isn't a ton of trouble.  In fact, many driving holes are either uphill or the landing area is on an upslope so i didn't really sacrifice much distance with my 3 wood (minimal roll out with driver).

That said, i really miss playing here.  Great setting, fantastic greens and plenty of variety.

PM me if you want any more specific info

play a practice round. there are some visually weird lines off the tee. Also there are a few holes where you need to decide how far to lay back off the tee from a hazard.

I'm going to try and get up there before the tournament.  Just based off the aerial view from google maps it looks like there are some interesting lines on some of the shortish par 4's.

I've played CCCC many times.  You'll enjoy it.  As noted above, the key is determining the right lines for drives (and second shots on par 5's) on certain holes.  It isn't tree constrained, but still you'll want to determine aiming lines.  The course improved significantly with its renovation a few years ago (though they changed a cool short/blind par 4 into a "blah" par 3).  One negative due to the surrounding soils and the water they use:  the fairways play pretty soft throughout the year (even in July/August), so you don't get a lot of roll out on drives.  During your practice round, play a few balls from short left of the 8th hole, one of the most difficult par 3's in golf.  It is a long hole, and if you miss a bit short and left (a common spot), your chip/pitch to the green can easily end up in a back bunker.  I think at some point they might adjust that green to deal with that.

One last word - it is a great walking course.  Tees are close to greens, and there aren't a lot of hills to climb.

Thank you Carrera.  

For the guy that can carry driver 290 would you say that driver will stay in the bag on some of the par 4's?

Yes, if you can hit the ball that far, then you can use a 3 wood (or something else) on 1 (to be short of the barranca), 4, maybe 7 (just don't go left if you use a driver) on the front nine.  On the back, no reason not to use a driver on 10 and 11, then give it a rest on 13 (use a mid iron at most).  On 15, choose an aggressive line to the left and ideally hit a draw so you don't run out of fairway (land tilts to the right).  Blast away on 16 and 17, and probably the same on 18.  You can go with less club on most of the above, but really no reason to dial it back.  It is not a penal course if you are slightly off, except left on 7 (yellow stakes) and 18 (driving range left).  Driving corridors are pretty wide.

Nice course, hills. Not a lot of trees, always felt there should be more. Haven’t played there in forever.
