This starting hole offers a wide landing area. The ideal tee shot would be down the left side to avoid the small oak tree. This should leave a short iron into a mounded green. To avoid a very tough pitch shot, guard over clubbing.

This hole offers the most generous fairway on the course. A well struck tee ball should leave a short iron into a seemingly flat green. This hole generally yields a lot of birdies.

This par 4 plays shorter than the yardage. Aim over the tree line down the left side and take it straight at the green. Depending on the wind conditions, this hole can be shortened to a flip wedge into the green.

Birdie opportunity. Avoid tree trouble down the left side all the way to the green. A decent tee ball will leave fairway wood into an easily approachable green. Watch out for out of bounds right and long on your second shot.

Keep an eye out for the lateral hazard in the left rough 250 yards off the tee. A large pin oak tree near the green will cause difficulty if your tee shot strays too far into the right rough. A very golfer friendly green can be reached with short iron shots.

This slightly uphill 370 yard dogleg right will be very appealing for the players that like play a fade from the tee box. A middle to short iron into a large green will be the play here. The pin placement on the green can be deceiving.

Most golfers will find their tee ball on a slightly downhill lie that will test their iron skills to a wide but shallow green. Wind tends to make it play longer than the yardage. A water hazard near the green guards this hole if your approach falls short.

This picturesque par 3 over water might well be the best hole at L. A. Nickell. A tree guarding the left side of the green demands a very accurate shot to this small elevated green. If in doubt on the tee, take one more club here to get to the putting surface.

A difficult driving hole, this par 5 has O.B. left and a lateral hazard down the right side. An ideal tee ball would be on the left-hand side of the fairway, atop the hill. A well-placed fairway wood should leave a short pitch to a severely back to front sloped green. Shorter putts tend to break more than they read.

The tee ball landing stretches only 28 yds. wide for this 359 yd. dogleg right par 4. The ideal drive would defiantly favor the left side of the fairway, which slopes left to right. A delicate shot will land on one of the largest and favorite greens on the course.

This straight away 185 yd. par 3 demands a well-struck long iron/fairway metal wood to a relatively flat putting surface. If your tee shot is miss hit, pitch into this green just a few yards short of the fringe. A par here is a good score..

This short dogleg left par 4 requires a high trajectory tee shot to clear the trees guarding the left side of the hole. A right to left tee ball would be the perfect shot. Avoid going over the green here. If you are driving the ball well, this is a definite birdie opportunity.

A short par 4 with a blind landing area.Optimal second shot is achieved by landing tee shot on left side of the fairway but be careful to avoid the O.B. & lateral hazard left. A severely right to left sloping green awaits your short approach shot. This hole makes for a great opportunity to walk away with birdie.

This lengthy par 4 will play longer than 382 yards because of the uphill landing area and prevailing wind from the south. Favor the right side off the tee, which allows for an easier approach shot into the wide but narrow green. Putts here generally break more than they read.
