The River hole-by-hole
No. 1 – Snake
Start your round with a view you will see throughout the day – the Sheboygan River borders the entire hole along the left side. The deep green can make choosing a club on your approach difficult.
No. 3 – Gotcha
Native grasses to the left and behind the green and an expansive bunker along the dogleg await to swallow errant shots. Every player will be challenged by this undulating green.
No. 7 – Glencary
Navigate a tee shot over the deep ravine, while avoiding the large bunker left and native fescue grass right. An accurate approach shot is critical to negotiate one of the smallest greens on the course.
No. 8 – Hell's Gate
Forced carry over river valley to fairway some 50 feet below the tee box. Hole moves sharply to the right to split-level fairway. The shallow, well-guarded green will require precision.
No. 15 – The Sand Pit
Aptly named with three large bunkers on the hole, this par 4 offers a generous landing area. The approach shot is downhill, and the green features many subtle undulations.
No. 16 – Unter Der Linden
Players must avoid the large bunker on the left, but stay left in order to have a better look at this winding downhill par 5. Approach shots must avoid the towering Linden tree. The deep green falls left toward the Sheboygan River.
No. 17 – Snapping Turtle
This boomerang-shaped tee wraps around a water hazard that also fronts the putting green. The front half of the green slopes toward the water hazard, while the back-half tier is relatively flat.
No. 18 – Dyehard
The memorable final hole on The River is also the longest par 4. The fairway bunker running the entire length of the hole awaits players who cut off too much on the left. The putting green slopes left toward the river.
