Hole #1
Par 4/400 yards
Fast Start: A relatively wide fairway welcomes you to the first hole at Falcon's Fire. However, don't let this lull you to sleep. There are four fairway bunkers on each side of the fairway to get your attention if you hit a stray tee shot. The second shot is to a slightly elevated green surrounded by bunkers. The right front of the green is open for the timid at heart. The green is relatively gentle but beware of some very subtle breaks.
Hole #2
Par 4/359 yards
Water's Edge: Again, a very wide fairway with the Rees Jones trademark mounds on each side of the fairway. There are two bunkers built into the mounds on the left. The fairway is very rolling, which will cause problems for those not used to playing from uneven lies. The strength of the hole is the green complex, which has a high bunker to the left, a smaller bunker to the right back and a small pot bunker to the right of the green. The green sits at the Water's Edge of the lake, which is short and to the right of the green.
Hole #3
Par 3/170 yards
Short One: The third hole is indeed a delight. Though relatively short, this is an outstanding par three. There is a long bunker crossing the fairway in front of the green, two bunkers behind the green and a lake to the right runs the entire length of the hole. Bring your straight shot and your camera with you for this picturesque par three.
Hole #4
Par 5/480 yards
Go For Broke: This is the kind of par five that the gallery loves. Relatively easy off the tee, with two bunkers on each side of the fairway for the stray drive. The fun is with the second shot. The fairway is very narrow approaching the green, with heavy rough for those who stray. There are also bunkers on both sides of the green. The front of the green is open, tempting the long hitter to go for broke.
Hole #5
Par 4/453 yards
Cypress Stand: The tee shot on this long difficult par four is across a wetlands that has a beautiful stand of cypress trees just to the right of the fairway. There is a long bunker along the left side of the fairway and fairway bunkers to the right. The green is open in front, to better receive the long second shot. However, hit it straight because there are bunkers to the right and left of the green.
Hole #6
Par 4/351 yards
Tucked Away: This is simply a beautiful hole with mounds and bunkers left and a lake and wetlands to the right. The green is tucked away behind the trees in the wetlands to the right. The second shot is to an elevated green with bunkers in front and back and the water hazard to the right. This one can bite you.
Hole #7
Par 5/553 yards
Lay Up: A classic three shot, par five, with a long bunker along the left side of the fairway. There are mounds to the right of the fairway to direct play. The second shot is a lay up between four bunkers guarding the left side of the fairway and a lake to the right. The third shot is into a green guarded by three bunkers to the left and behind the green and two bunkers to the right of the green.
Hole #8
Par 3/224 yards
Falcon's Pride: This will undoubtedly become known as one of the most difficult par threes in Florida. The hole plays at 224 yards from the back tee, all carry across a lake, to a green surrounded by seven bunkers. This is a hole where most players will be happy to be in the bunker from the tee. For the faint of heart there are several tees along the edge of the lake that give you the option of playing at a shorter length. Indeed this is the Falcon's Pride and joy.
Hole #9
Par 4/380 yards
Turning Point: Even though this is a relatively short hole, it requires a very accurate drive, with four bunkers guarding the left edge of the fairway and the right side being protected by a grove of trees. The green has a bunker on the left and right front and a bunker at the right back of the green. The green is slightly elevated and very shallow. Be sure and use enough club. The distance can fool you.

Hole #10
Par 5/536 yards
No Turning Back: A beautiful dogleg right, par five, eases you into the great golf experience that the back nine at Falcon's Fire provides. There are gentle mounds to the left of the hole and a series of three very deep bunkers at the turn point of the fairway. The player is also faced with three bunkers to the right of the fairway and one bunker to the left on the second shot. The green is guarded by two bunkers to the left of the green, one behind the green and one to the right. A good par five.
Hole #11
Par 3/186 yards
Solitary: Two deep bunkers guard the right and left front of this elevated par 3 green. A swale in front of the green hides some distance, making club selection difficult. Most people will not select enough club. A good, solid par 3.
Hole #12
Par 4/452 yards
Oak Grove: A beautiful oak grove guards the right side of the fairway with mounds and bunkers left. Beware of a shot over the mounds as out of bounds lurks there. The second shot is an open front green that can fool you. The bunkers on the front left and the back right are very subtle and will come into play, particularly the right bunker which is carved into the green. There is a rise that runs through the green that makes this one of the more difficult greens to putt.
Hole #13
Par 4/394 yards
Bunker Hill: Stand on the tee and you will see how this hole derives its name. There are 14 bunkers fitted into the fairway to the left. With the lake on the right you don't feel like you have a place to play. Don't worry, there is plenty of room. When you get the ball to the fairway the challenge has just begun. The second shot is to a small green with the lake to the right, a large deep bunker guarding the left front of the green and a huge bunker to the left of the green. A classic hole.
Hole #14
Par 5/550 yards
Falcon's Lair: Keep it left all the way. There is water to the right from the tee to the green. The three bunkers to the left seem relatively minor in comparison to the lake. Discretion is the better part of valor with the second shot. The green is built partially into the lake so keep the second shot short and left. The third shot is very challenging with the water right and a deep bunker left. The fairway is also very rolling which can create some lies that add to the difficulty of the third shot. The Falcon's Lair can be found in the cypress grove behind the green. Be on the lookout.
Hole #15
Par 3/163 yards
Watery Grave: This is just a superb par three. The right club selection is imperative. Too long or to the left and you are in the bunker. Short or to the right and you have found a Watery Grave. The golf pro loves this hole.
Hole #16
Par 4/366 yards
Double Dip: Gamblers beware. This is a marvelous, short, par four. There is a lake left and a lake right. For those who are faint of heart, an iron from the tee is the play. Beware or you could be double dipped. Even though the second shot is relatively short, playing to a small elevated green with the lake to the right and a high bunker to the left makes this no easy choice. The golf pro doubly loves this hole.
Hole #17
Par 4/420 yards
Test Of Courage: There is an oak grove and mounds to the right of the fairway and the lake runs the length of the hole on the left. A driver off this tee is truly courageous. However, the true test of courage comes with the second shot. A long iron is required to a green that is built behind the lake to the left. The bunkers to the right and left of the green create a very narrow opening to the small, shallow green. Truly one of the best holes of the course.
Hole #18
Par 4/464 yards
Falcon's Fire: The eighteenth hole is a very long, par four that will test the fire in your belly. At 464 yards, this great finishing hole requires a very good drive and a long, accurate, second shot. There are four fairway bunkers fitted into the mound to the left, with mounds along the right side of the hole to direct play on the slight dogleg left. Accuracy is at a premium on the second shot to this slightly elevated green that is protected by two bunkers to the left and right sides of the green. This is a fitting ending to the wonderful golf experience called Falcon's Fire.
