Hole #1 - Par 4
Arnold sends you out with his signature style hole, a dogleg that turns from right to left. Appearing straight forward, make sure you hit the fairway for the rough can be monstrous.
Hole #2 - Par 5
As you enter some of the thickest vegetation on the course, keep your eye out for the wildlife, including moose. That same foliage could cost you dearly. Try to play this hole conservatively to ensure a lower score.
Hole #3 - Par 3
Arguably the toughest par 3 on the course, stay on your short game to keep the strokes down. There is much more room to land in than what the tee view gives you. Missing short of the green allows for the easiest up and down opportunity!
Hole #4 - Par 4
You've reached the "Amen Corner" as locals like to call the turn away from the heavy creek side vegetation. Your main concerns are to position yourself away from the natural topography along the right side to avoid getting sucked in, and to calculate the prevailing winds. Favoring the left center of the fairway from the tee is the safest play.
Hole #5 - Par 4
A risk/reward hole that allows the longer hitters to drive this green from the tee, this is a great chance to lay up to your favorite distance and make your birdie from the fairway. Positioning your approach shot on the correct tier of the green is critical for a one putt.
Hole #6 - Par 5
A par 5 that is reachable in 2 shots for the longer hitters use the stadium mounding to help your tee shot go the distance to the straight forward green. Beware of the greenside bunkers which can act as magnets.
Hole #7 - Par 4
Off the tee, enjoy the picturesque backdrop of playing in the mountains. Use the Big Sky Chapel (steeple tower) as your target. The approach shot to the green is very receptive with a green that is heavily sloped from back to front. Accuracy is key to not leaving yourself with a tricky chip shot.
Hole #8 - Par 3
As you enter the home stretch of the front nine, you will again be faced with prevailing winds that make holes eight and nine challenging. This is a long tee shot that must be brought in high and soft to be successful. Use the trees behind the green for an aim point.
Hole #9 - Par 4
The uphill grade makes this hole play a bit longer with the wind factor. The vista of Lone Peak is the best feature as you return to the clubhouse.
