A tee shot to the corner of this dogleg right hole will leave you with a 150 yard second shot. The sloping kidney shaped green will provide a glimpse of the severity of the greens on the entire front nine.
One of the best short par threes you will ever play. The green is over 40 yards long. Club selection is important. In order to make par on this hole you must be on the same tier that the pin is on with your tee shot.
Tightest hole on the golf course. Out of bounds right, trees and water left. Both the tee shot and second shot are very demanding.
This straight away par 5 provides the best opportunity for a birdie on the front nine. Avoid out of bounds right, and you may be on your way to your best hole on the front nine.
Medium distance par 3. To make a par on this hole you will most likely need to hit the green in regulation. The green is severely undulated, which makes it very difficult to get an approach chip shot close to the hole.
Another great short par 4. A lake crosses through the fairway 250 yards off the tee. Placing your approach shot to the middle of the green will leave you a birdie putt of less than 20 feet.
This hole is a mirror image of hole #1. A tee shot to the corner of this dogleg left will leave you with a 150 yard second shot. Any shot that goes over the green has a chance of ending up in the lake directly behind the green.
Par 4-men, Par 5-women- Longest par 4 on the course for men, and a strong par 5 for women. Narrow tee shot to a fairway that doglegs to the right. Avoid the fairway bunker on the left. This hole normally plays into the teeth of a prevailing north wind to one of the most difficult greens on the golf course.
A fun finish to the front nine. Shortish dogleg left. Any second shot that finishes left of the green will leave a nearly impossible chip shot to a long green that slopes severely from back left to front right. Staying below the hole for your putt is a must.
Standing on the tee of this dogleg right provides a tremendous view of the Rocky Mountains. A good tee shot just past the corner of the dogleg will leave you with a difficult second. The green on this hole is normally one of the firmest on the course, and slopes away from the fairway.
This is one of the best par fours on the back nine. The hole doglegs sharply to the left, and is guarded by two deep bunkers in front of the green. The green on this hole is notoriously firm, and you must be precise on your second shot to remain close to the pin.
The first of two fine risk reward holes on the back nine. Seven bunkers surround this short par four hole. Out of bounds left means the safe shot will be to the right. This green may appear benign, but after playing the course a few times, you realize that this green is one of the trickiest on the course.
The toughest stretch of holes at E.C.C. begin with this long, difficult par 3. This green is guarded by trees front left, as well as two demanding bunkers, front left and front right of this green. To test the golfer even more this green also slopes away from the tee shot.
The longest hole on the golf course is also a double dogleg. Once you have gotten past all the trees on both sides of the fairway, you will be greeted by three strategically placed bunkers within one hundred yards of the green.
Second of two tremendous par threes on the incoming nine. A tough bunker guards the left side of the green. The green allows many difficult pin positions, and the green slopes severely from back to front.
The second risk reward hole on the back nine. This is a sweeping dogleg left with water to the left on the tee shot. A long tee shot can carry the water, but don’t get too greedy, the carry is farther than it looks. A small ditch crosses the fairway 50 yards short of the green. This green is one of the largest on the course, and is a two tier green that is divided right in the middle from front to back.
This short dogleg right is the narrowest hole on the back nine. Bunkers are placed on the left of the fairway, and trees are on the right side. A short second shot must carry a well placed bunker in front of this large green. The front of the green is higher than the back half of the green, and the green tier runs diagonally from back left to front right.
E.C.C.’s signature hole. Tremendous par 4 finishing hole. This slight dogleg right features a water hazard left, and two bunkers right of the dogleg. One of the only uphill holes on the course. The second shot must carry the two bunkers in front of the green. This green offers a variety of outstanding pin locations. After putting out on this hole turn back to the west and be reminded of why you choose to live in Colorado.
