Expert's advice on number three, a double dogleg: The good news, is if you aim over the tree, you'll end up with a second shot to the lay-up area of only about 175 yards. The bad news is, to give yourself a good chance at a birdie, your ball must be on the same level of the green as the pin, so there's a lot of skill and a smidgeon of luck involved. Expert's advice on number 18, a hole that boasts one of the biggest greens at Terravita: The bad news is that your second shot must be hit all the way to the well-bunkered green in order to have a chance at a birdie. However, the good news is that this hole, with its sweeping views of the rugged terrain of Black Mountain, is a truly gorgeous way to end a round of gung-ho golf.
