Scorecard Hole #15: par 4 – 387 yards – Zoo views of the train and giraffes draw your eye to the left, which is OB.Hit to right side of fairway, while long hitters can aim at cell tower and hit a draw. Do not go left on approach as hill promotes OB balls. Trouble some bunkers on both sides of thegreen. DO NOT GO LONG.
Scorecard Hole #16: par 3 – 220 yards – Another long par 3 with very sloped green. Aim to front middle for any chance for par. Bunkers front, right and left with a steep drop off behind make for few up and down’s.

Scorecard Hole #18: par 4 – 448 yards – One of the tougher holes on the course especially while trying to finish with a good score. Bunker 80 yards in front of green make for many tough 3rd shots. Key to the hole is keeping the ball below the hole with your approach shot.
