Hole 1

The elevation change from the tee box makes this hole play shorter than its yardage. However, a perfect tee shot is required to set this hole up for a par or birdie. A tee shot that is between the two fairway bunkers is a must to give a nice approach to the green. If the tee shot is not in the fairway, it will be a challenge to make par. Two bunkers protect the right and left side of the green. This hole will not yield many birdies.

Golf Course Hole 1

Hole 2

A tee shot placed down the left center will be perfect. Players need to avoid the trees and out of bounds to the right side. A green side bunker guards the green and should a flagstick position be front left, it will be very difficult to get close. This green slopes right, so players need to approach with this in mind.

Golf Course Hole 2

Hole 3

This is the longest par five on the golf course. Again, a tee shot to the right will flirt with trees and out of bounds. The fairway somewhat narrows for the second shot, so a well-positioned shot will afford a short iron third to a large green. Depending on the flagstick location, this hole can give up a few birdies, but not many.

Golf Course Hole 3

Hole 4

A tee shot on this hole must be played with precision down the center of the fairway. Trees on the left and out of bounds will be a penalty for any errant tee shots. This large green is guarded by two sand bunkers and can provide many "quick" putts from above the hole. Again, this hole will probably not yield many birdies.

Golf Course Hole 4

Hole 5

The elevation change on this hole is similar to hole number 10, but not quite as dramatic. A tee shot left or right will more than likely find tree trouble to approach the green. The second shot plays about one club less due to the subtle drop in elevation to the green. If a player misses this green, it is still a fairly easy up and down.

Golf Course Hole 5

Hole 6

A par five that does not yield many birdies. The challenge to this hole is positioning the second shot inside 150 yards so a player may hit a short-iron approach. Caution to the fairway bunkers about 100 yards from the green. These bunkers can be difficult shot with out of bounds looming over the green. This green is very narrow front to back, so a precise third shot is necessary to give a player a good look at birdie. The green is also very quick from back to front.

Hole 7

A par three hole with a very challenging green to putt. The slope to this green makes putts travel quickly. Most all tee shots will roll to the player's left when they land on the green. No matter where the flagstick is located, it is a difficult green to putt. When the flagstick is located in the back of the green, it can require one more club from the tee.

Golf Course Hole 7

Hole 8

To play this hole consistently, it is best to position the tee shot at the base of the slope rising to the green. This leaves the player about 115 yards to an elevated green. It is important for players to know if the flagstick is in front or back as a putt rolling the distance of this green is very difficult to control.

Golf Course Hole 8

Hole 9

Depending on the wind, this hole can play more difficult than its yardage. A rather large green can make it difficult to hit the ball close and requires correct club selection. The bunker on the right can be an easy up and down, but if a ball lands on the grass bank left of the green, it will undoubtedly roll into the water. At first glance, this green appears easy to putt; however, it slopes from back to front and can provide some interesting putting. This hole will provide spectators with some excellent viewing.

Golf Course Hole 9

Hole 10

A relatively short downhill par four. However, the tee shot becomes critical to set up the hole for a birdie. Players need to position their shot about 100 yards from the green between the two fairway bunkers. Long hitters may want to take less club off the tee to position their scorecard shot so they can create a shot to hold the green. The green slopes away from the player and approach shots tend to move to the left once on the green.

Golf Course Hole 10

Hole 11

This hole should be considered a definite birdie hole. There is no real trouble for the player except the hole plays much easier if the tee shot is in the fairway and not in the thick rough or trees. A reachable par five that allows room for the second shot to roll onto the green. If a front flagstick position is present, it may be best to position a second shot where the player can hit a full shot to hold a green that rolls away and to the right of the player.

Golf Course Hole 11

Hole 12

Probably one of the most challenging par four holes on the golf course. A long hitter will have an advantage. The best tee shot position is to be on top of the last uphill rise in the fairway which leaves a 150 - 160 yard second shot. The green is challenging to putt because of the undulation. Par is a good score.

Golf Course Hole 12

Hole 13

A tee shot placed in the fairway near the base of the hill rising to the green is perfect. An errant tee shot could easily catch the lake on hole #14. The second shot is partially blind, which means the player needs to be aware of flagstick location. Usually a short to mid-iron second shot will reach this green. This green can be one of the most challenging to putt on the golf course. An errant shot either right or behind the green will make a difficult up-and-down.

Golf Course Hole 13

Hole 14

This par three hole has been completely redesigned around the original green. Once an easy par three hole, it now provides several areas for trouble should a player not hit the correct club. A south prevailing wind will make this hole play slightly longer than its yardage. Soon to be a new signature hole for Hyperion Field Club, this hole offers a beautiful double lake with a waterfall in between. A birdie hole with a good tee shot, but a tough par if the player does not hit the green.

Golf Course Hole 14

Hole 15

A short par four with a blind tee shot. However, this hole does not yield as many birdies as one might think. A tee shot in the fairway is most important. An errant tee shot left or right will demand a carefully executed second shot due to the trees. This green runs dramatically away from the player, so a short iron approach shot is best. A definite birdie hole from a well-positioned tee shot, but a tough par if the tee shot is in the trees.

Hole 16

A short par four that allows the best approach from the left center of the fairway. Again, a short iron approach, but a green that runs to a player's left. Approach shots need to land on the right side of the green to get close to the hole.

Golf Course Hole 16

Hole 17

A dogleg right that allows for a short iron approach when a good tee shot is in the fairway. The fairway "kicks" right, so the player needs to allow for the slope. The green also slopes to the player's right, which may make for a difficult approach when the flagstick is cut to the left. This green will test the player's ability to read break.

Hole 18

A great finishing hole. An uphill, left-sloping fairway requires a perfect position tee shot to avoid the trees on the right and the rough and trees on the left side. Usually a short to mid-iron approach will be the case. This green will give players a putting challenge. The green slopes toward the approach and to the player's left. A front flagstick will be very difficult to get close.
