Built originally as the opening nine, Mountain View room serves as a good warm up to the game with its straight forward par 4's. The course has only 3 holes with water and offers lots of room off the tee. Although forgiving for high handicappers, this course offers lots of 'risk-reward' shots to challenge the lower handicapped golfer. A long well placed drive on the par 5, 4th hole can set up a gutsy, partially blind long or mid iron shot to the green for a chance at eagle.
The course gets progressively more difficult. The par 3, 8th hole, tests the nerves with water off the front of the tee and a large, undulating green that is heavily guarded with trees and two large bunkers. The finishing hole is a par 5 that presents an opportunity to gamble and go for the green in two if the tee shot has been well struck.
Overall, Mountain View favors long straight drives leaving many short approaches and birdie opportuniities. However, shorter controlled shots will also allow for commendable scores.
