  • Par 71
  • 7,340 yards
  • Bermuda fairways, framed by tree-lined corridors and doglegs, demanding accuracy and shot shaping off the tee.
  • Bermuda greens overseeded with Poa present a challenging putting surface, often protected by bunkers and water hazards.

The Copperhead Course is renowned for its unforgiving nature, with strategic challenges at every turn. Accurate tee shots are essential, with approach shots often coming from distances of 175 yards and beyond due to forced layups. The Snake Pit, comprised of holes 16, 17 and 18, serves as a daunting finale, testing golfers’ nerves and skills. Par-5 scoring holds significant importance, given the course’s unique layout featuring four par 5s and five par 3s.

Weather conditions are expected to compound the course’s difficulty, with winds consistently above 15 mph and potentially reaching gusts exceeding 30 mph on Friday. Mild temperatures in the mid-70s are forecasted, but rain may present another challenge.

With the course’s formidable layout and tough conditions, the projected winning score is anticipated to be around -10, while the cut will likely fall around +2. Past champions like Taylor Moore, Sam Burns and Paul Casey highlight the tournament’s history of competitive play.
