LPGA Founders Cup Course Info:

Hole 01 | The first hole of the tournament course is 385 yards. This straight, medium-length par 4 features three very large fairway bunkers that collect errant tee shots. A small, bunkered green awaits an accurate approach.

Hole 02 | The second hole is a long, split fairway, par 5. Though, precise tee shot will leave you a chance to get home in two. But don't try to run the ball on the green, or this large greenside bunker will leave you with a challenging third shot.

Hole 03 | Perhaps the most difficult tee shot on the Tournament course is the 3rd hole. This hole requires an accurate tee shot to a fairway that bends from right to left. A three-tiered green will challenge your approach shot if you expect a realistic chance at a birdie.

Hole 04 | The par-3, 4th hole has one of the more challenging greens on the course. After a mid-iron tee shot, you must successfully negotiate the undulations and contours of this green to secure a par.

Hole 05 | The final par-5 on the front nine demands a straight tee shot, with desert areas on both sides of the fairway. Depending on the pin placement, you must decide which side of the split fairway you will hit your second shot into which will allow easy access to this large contoured green. A well-played third shot may provide a chance at a birdie on this scenic par 5.

Hole 06 | The second par-3 on the course is the 6th hole. A long iron is needed to reach the green that has multiple levels and is sloped from back to front.

Hole 07 | The short, par-4 7th requires accuracy off of the tee which will set up a short-iron to this demanding green. Several greenside bunkers guard this green and a severe slant from back to front makes a birdie putt difficult to attain.

Hole 08 | Perhaps the most difficult hole on the front nine is the par-4, 17th. If your tee shot manages to avoid the desert areas, you are left with a long approach and must negotiate the lake on the right side of the green. A challenging green will make you work for your par.

Hole 09 | The 9th hole on the course is a straight par-4 that features a very large fairway bunker that will penalize errant tee shots. A mid-iron approach must find the correct level of this large, two-tiered green.

Hole 10 | The 10th hole is a long par-4 with a slight dog-leg, right. If you find the bunker that is 40 yards short of the green, you can amass a large number of this hole. Perhaps the most undulating green on the golf course, the 10th green will challenge even the best putting strokes.

Hole 11 | The three fairway bunkers on the par-5, 11th provide for the narrowest tee shot on the golf course. A successful lay-up must stay clear of a bunker that sits 60 yards from the green. Your third shot must find the correct section of this triangle-shaped green in order to have a realistic birdie chance.

Hole 12 | The 478-yard, par-4 12th is a demanding hole. If your tee shot finds the short grass, don't be fooled on your approach by the bunker that sits 20 yards short of the green. Although the undulations on the 12th green are subtle, this green is slippery and is very easy to 3-putt.

Hole 13 | Hit a long-iron or fairway wood to the 100-120 yard range and you are off to a good start on the par-4 13th. Judging the correct distance on your second shot to this uphill green will prove to be a challenge. This green slopes from right to left, so be careful with those downhill putts.

Hole 14 | At 214 yards, the par-3 14th is one of many challenging holes on the inward nine. Once you have found the putting surface, this green will challenge you with its slopes and deceiving breaks.

Hole 15 | The 15th hole is a 485-yard par-5. With a desert area down the entire left side, the fairway is wide enough to be aggressive. A well-protected green will provide a reasonable birdie try to those who play it smart.

Hole 16 | A true risk-reward hole, the 314-yard par-4 16th will give you a few options. A lay-up with a mid or long-iron will leave you with a short approach to this well-guarded green. If you try to drive the green from the tee, plenty of deep bunkers await an off-line shot. Scores frequently range from eagle to double-bogey on this short par-4.

Hole 17 | The 17th hole is a medium-sized par-3 that provides an opportunity for a birdie. However, once you find the putting surface, this multi-tiered green may turn your birdie putt into a bogey putt.

Hole 18 | The finishing hole is a 420-yard par 4 that features a desert area along the entire left side. If you manage to avoid the fairway and greenside bunkers, this fairly flat green will give you a true run at birdie.
