Hole #1, Par 5, 500 yards - At 500 yards, this opening par 5 is a challenge. A water hazard on the right side of the fairway adds to the importance of control on the tee shot. #1 is the fourth toughest hole at Marywood.


Hole #2, Par 4, 470 yards - A tough par 4 awaits you on the second hole at Marywood. With bunkers to the left of the fairway, a solid tee shot is a must to have a chance at par.
  Hole #3, Par 4, 382 yards - A mid-length par 4, the third hole at Marywood has bunkers to the left, trees and a steep hill to the right. A good drive leaves you with a short iron approach to this undulating green.
Hole #4, Par 3, 215 yards - The first par 3 at Marywood is long, with a large pond immediately in front of the tee. A large, forgiving green, with bunkers to the left, offers a good chance at making par.
Hole #5, Par 4, 433 yards - This long par 4 with an elevated green requires a mid to long iron approach to a mid-size green with trouble behind. The green slopes back to front, making most putts a challenge.
Hole #6, Par 3, 154 yards - This beautiful par 3 is a good birdie opportunity when the pin is toward the back of the green. Short-iron tee shots will funnel to the hole with a back pin placement, bringing players short birdie putts.
Hole #7, Par 4, 374 yards - A steep hill to the right of the fairway brings the left side bunkers into play on the tee shot of this par 4. A solid drive leaves you a short to mid iron approach to a severely sloping green, protected on all sides by bunkers.
Hole #8, Par 4, 344 yards - A long drive leaves you a short iron approach to this tricky par 4. With woods to the right and trouble to the left, finding the fairway is a must for a good score on the eighth.
Hole #9, par 5, 497 yards - This long par 5 is difficult to reach in two. The elevated green is tempting, but protected by deep bunkers. A lay-up to a short iron approach is the best chance of making birdie on this final hole before the turn.
