Trillium Wood Golf Club is characterized by mature trees, large greens, elevated tees, rolling bentgrass fairways, picturesque ponds, and strategically placed bunkers. The magnificently scenic 18 holes gives one the sense that they have been part of the landscape for many years.
Pro Tip:This 545 yard par 5 has elevated tee decks that allow you to overlook the fairway. Mounds are scattered through the rough on both sides of the fairway. Your second shot will have to be carefully planned because you will have to negotiate a creek running across the middle of the fairway. Once you’re over the creek, you will be lying on a level fairway with a straight forward approach shot. The green is a two tiered and guarded with a bunker on the left side. The small stream on your tee shot is not in play - unless you're Tiger Woods. A drive on the left side of the fairway will open up your second shot providing a definite birdie opportunity. But don’t take it too lightly, a poor score will not put you in the right mindset to challenge Trillium’s front nine.

Pro Tip:This is a beautiful par 3 with elevated tees. Before your ball lands safely on the green you have to play over an environmentally sensitive area with wildflowers and cattails. There is a wide bunker placed in front of the green waiting to catch any shots that happen to come up short. The slightly elevated tee may make a full club difference especially if the west wind is blowing. A back right pin position will need a solid left to right shot to take the bunker out of play.
Pro Tip:This medium length dogleg right par 4 is lined with trees and mounding. The landing zone is protected with a bunker on the left and a group of trees on the right. The second shot is uphill towards a green surrounded by three hidden bunkers on the front and right. This large green has grass depressions located at the back. Aim for the middle of the fairway. Bigger hitters may want to bite off part of the dogleg by going over the fescued mounds. An uphill approach hides a bunker complex to the right of the green and you will have to negotiate a blind shot to the largest green on the course.
Pro Tip:This is our signature hole and once you play it, you’ll know why! From the tee, this par 4 dogleg left is gorgeous with trees lining the fairway. Your approach shot will have to carry a magnificent pond lined with limestone boulders. Even if you make it over the pond, you are still faced with a huge five lobed bunker that looks like a giant catchers mitt ready to gobble up any golf balls that land nearby. The narrow green is guarded on the right by a deep bunker. A drive that travels past the 150 marker is the safest route to the green. If you are going to be short on the drive then play to the front edge of the pond.

Pro Tip:This short, uphill par 3 is completely framed by trees. With strategically placed bunkers on the left side and boulder lined tee decks make this one of the most picturesque holes on the course. Two grass depressions at the back of the green will stop long shots. Choose a higher club than you think and keep an eye on the wind above the trees. A short tee shot landing in the bunker or rolling down the hill will guarantee a bogie on this hole.
Pro Tip:The giant mature trees lining this par five dogleg right make you think you are all by yourself on the golf course. The entire left side of the golf hole is an environmentally sensitive area and is red staked. The second shot landing area is narrowed by a group of beech trees. From the approach, you will see a long narrow green nestled among 60 foot beech and maple trees. Be careful though, there is a bunker guarding the entire right side of the green. Take the big number out of play - keep the ball in play. . A well positioned tee shot (re- think pulling out the driver) and a mid to low iron second shot will set yourself up for an easy high iron into the green. For those wanting to reach the green in two, you must hit a solid tee shot around the corner to set yourself up for a long iron or fairway wood into the green. This hole is tight, play it smart.
Pro Tip:This dog-leg left hole has two bunkers guarding the landing zone and a small marsh comes into play on the right side. The fairway is sloped left to right with two trees coming into play on your second shot. This elevated green is two-tierd and has a large bunker at the back. A tee shot in play is critical. Aim for the middle left side of the fairway - avoiding the bunker on the right. A short approach to the pin will leave an uphill putt.

Pro Tip:This difficult par 3 has 4 sets of tee decks and plays longer than it looks from the back. The narrow green is guarded by a bunker on the right and grass depressions on the left. Anything right of the cart path puts you in JAIL! A long iron is required to reach this green. Do not make the error of shooting for the stick - aim for the middle of the green.
Pro Tip:This is a great uphill front nine finishing hole. The water that lies in front of 3 tee decks is only a factor of the mind. The bunkers guard the landing zone on your drive and the second shot is wide open if you are short of the green. The green is undulating and well guarded by five bunkers. There are many tricky pin placements on this green; par is a good score. Anything can happen on this great hole. Two huge shots can set oneself up for an eagle putt. However, this extremely difficult three tiered and well bunkered green requires an accurate approach shot to avoid the bunkers and to position your putt below the hole. Good luck!
Pro Tip:This is a very challenging hole and rated Trillium Wood’s #3 handicap. Mounds cascade the left side and cedar trees riddle the right side. From the landing zone you overlook a huge poplar tree that forces play across a cattail filled marsh that only gives you a glimpse of the putting surface. Position is everything. Aim at the 150 yard marker in the middle of the fairway setting yourself up for a par chance with a mid iron.

Pro Tip:Trillium Wood’s longest hole makes it a definite three shot par 5. Fairway bunkers on the left and right are strategically staggered to reduce landing zone off the tee. A waste area lines the left side from the fairway bunkers to the green. The long and narrow green is heavily guarded with bunkers on the left and right side. In addition, there are grass depressions on the right side that will give you an uneven lie if you happen to land there. Try to avoid the bunkers on the left off your tee shot. A solid second shot will set you up for a lower iron approach. Be aware of the pin position, this long and well bunkered green is 46 yards in length.

Pro Tip:Straight forward par three. Green is guarded by a bunker in front and grass depressions on the left side. Play it safe, a right to left shot will set you up nicely no matter where the pin is located. If the pin is in the back left and you're brave, you'll have to carry a large bunker and have very little green to work with.
Pro Tip:All four tee decks are nestled in a narrow chute and is heavily wooded on both sides of the hole. Fairway bunkers on the left side force you to contemplate whether you want to aim tight to the trees or risk a sand shot. This green is on a precarious angle which makes it tough even though it is only guarded by one front bunker. Position off the tee is everything. There is very little margin for error if your tee shot is errant - you may choose to keep the driver in the bag. A back left pin position will make your second shot more difficult since the green slopes front to back and is protected by a bunker in front.

Pro Tip:This picturesque par 3 has an everglade type moat meandering around the tee decks. The entire hole is heavily wooded with a myriad of mature tree types. Be prepared to play over a marsh with only at tiny fairway and little rough in front of the green. The green is not deep and sits low in the landscape. Club selection is key on this tricky Par 3. A forced carry over the marsh is required and there are no bail-out areas. Notice too long or too short, it will cost you strokes.
Pro Tip:This is not a long par 4 but very challenging. Whatever tee deck you choose you will face an uphill battle. Well placed bunkers on both sides of the fairway give a narrow landing zone on the first shot. The white Temisca sand bunkers on the left side of the green stare you down on your approach shot. Try not to be intimidated because the golfer who comes up short on the approach shot has two deep grass depressions waiting. A well positioned tee shot in the fairway will set up a short approach. Driving the bunkers to the right is possible but you may be in the rough on your approach. Give yourself a treat and hit from the gold deck. It provides a unique perspective because of the marsh and position of the fairway bunkers.
Pro Tip:The golfer who hits it long and straight will enjoy this hole. At first, this hole might seem uneventful but take another look! A huge pond on the left side spans almost the entire length of the fairway and trees along the entire right side will eat up any stray golf balls. The green is elevated with five bunkers around that will definitely make you think twice about your approach shot - they are sunken down and very well placed. This straight away Par 5 is a definite birdie opportunity. From the tee to the green it is fairly straight forward, however, a three tiered and well bunkered green awaits. A three putt is a certain possibility with an approach shot above the hole.
Pro Tip:This 437-yard par four (from the tips) can be called a true golf hole because it has everything! From the tee you will notice it plays right to left. Three bunkers on the corner offer a great depth perception and line of sight. Water lines the entire fairway and lurks in the back of your mind if you try to cut the hole short off the tee. From the landing zone, your playing to an elevated green with a bunker that only lets you see about 20% without danger. If the wind is blowing from the west (as it usually does), you will need a solid drive to set yourself up for a low to medium iron to the green. Aim for the fairway bunkers in order to keep the water out of play. After your drive your work is just beginning. An elevated and well- bunkered green will require an accurate and long iron shot. You can be proud of a par on this hole!
Pro Tip:This par four dogleg right has some great elevation changes. If you don’t make it past the two fairway bunkers on the right, you won’t be able to see the flag. Mounds on the right side at the corner of the hole are covered in long fescue. Bunkers on the outside corner of the hole provide excellent targets if you want your tee shot to land in the middle of the fairway. From your approach shot, you will notice four bunkers surround the green. One bunker is out front, dividing the green in half. Play it safe - hit down the middle of the fairway toward the two large fairway bunkers at the corner. Big hitters may want to bite off a bit of the dogleg but beware, OB and a fescued dogleg could make a simple par into a disappointing 7 or 8.
