Start Of The Lakes Back Nine Photo Gallery

After the more intimate front where holes move back and forth on a smaller scale, The Lakes back nine opens with a tight short par four before exploding on a grand scale with several dramatic holes highlighted by striking water hazards.

Because of an approaching storm, I was only able to get solid shots of the first four holes of the back but I think you'll enjoy seeing the architecture and quality detailing work by Mike Clayton and his team.

The images show the narrow, short par-4 tenth, followed by the neverending three-shot 11th, the long 12th playing to a skyline green, and the fantastic driveable downhill 13th. From there the water takes over to set up what should be a dramatic finishing stretch before intimacy returns with the short par-3 18th.

Great stuff, Geoff. Thanks for all the effort.
The 13th looks like a blast!

Wicked looking bunkers, either really easy to maintain or very difficult.

Great pics. This just looks like a hell of a fun course to play.

Geoff - is it hilly at all? The course looks amazing but hard to tell how flat it is.

I agree with dbh: the 13th looks amazing.

Got me stuffed why the PGA are not begging to come down here every year to play a few of our courses.

pics look great. Too bad after working with Doak and Dye, I still can't find a dang job in the design field.
