The property at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Magnolia Grove includes creeks, marshland and lakes, with each of the 54 holes carved from a thick forest of hardwood and pine.
The Crossings course will host the Airbus LPGA Classic. The course, which doubles across railroad tracks, is a shotmaker's layout. It occupies hilly terrain with several pulpit greens elevated well above fairway levels. The Crossings is one of two championship layouts at Magnolia Grove, and both courses were named by Golf Digest's Places to Play as two of the nation's Great Value courses. Both courses were also listed in America's Top 50 Affordable Courses.
1Hole #1Par 4 395 Yards
The opening hole on the Crossings course is a straight-away par-4. Players need to hit their tee shot down the right side of the fairway to leave the best angle to the green. A deep bunker guards the left side of the green.
2Hole #2Par 3 180 Yards
Hole No. 2 is a par-3 that usually requires a mid-to-long iron from the tee. Players must avoid the bunker guarding the entrance of the putting surface. The green is elevated and wide.
3Hole #3Par 4 387 Yards
The par-4 third hole is a dogleg right where position is more important than distance. The second shot should be with a short iron and requires precision to knock it close on this large green. The green is partially hidden from the fairway and protected by a large bunker on the right.
4Hole #4Par 5 528 Yards
Hole No. 4 begins with a blind tee shot over a hill. The green on this par-5 is reachable in two, but players must avoid the wetlands on the left and a steep bunker guarding the front of the green.
5Hole #5Par 4 392 Yards
Players need to drive the ball to the right of the fairway bunker to find the landing area on the par-4 fifth hole. The approach shot with a mid-to-short iron must avoid the lake and bunkers guarding the green.
6Hole #6Par 5 488 Yards
Golfers need to hit their tee shots left of the fairway bunker off the tee on the par-5 sixth hole. The second shot must avoid a bunker guarding the left side of the fairway. The green is elevated and slopes mostly from back to front.
7Hole #7Par 4 385 Yards
A well-positioned tee shot will stop at the top of the hill on the par-4 seventh hole. A premium is placed on proper club selection to avoid the greenside bunker on the left and severe drop-off on the right.
8Hole #8Par 3 159 Yards
Golfers need to choose plenty of club before hitting your tee shot on the par-3 eighth hole. The green is perched high above wetlands and guarded by two pot bunkers in the front. Two more pot bunkers guard the left and right side of the deep green.
9Hole #9Par 4 370 Yards
The ninth hole is an uphill par-4. A long tee shot to the right side of the fairway will leave the best angle into the green. A mid-to-long iron will be needed for the second shot, which must avoid the large bunker on the left.
10Hole #10Par 4 380 Yards
A long tee shot over wetlands, avoiding the left fairway bunker, affords the best position for the second shot on the par-4 tenth hole. A well-struck mid-iron should place golfers safely on the putting surface.
11Hole #11Par 4 398 Yards
Hole No. 11 favors a left-to-right tee shot to leave the best angle to the green on this par-4. The approach shot to the deep, but narrow, green must avoid a massive bunker on the right.
12Hole #12Par 4 376 Yards
The tee shot on the par-4 twelfth hole is one of the prettiest on the course. Club selection on the second shot is critical to avoid the bunkers surrounding the front and right sides of the green.
13Hole #13Par 5 522 Yards
Accuracy is key on the par-5 thirteenth hole. Golfers need to play the second shot to the left and away from the two fairway bunkers. A well-struck short iron will bring them home to this small, but tightly bunkered, green.
14Hole #14Par 3 149 Yards
All the trouble lies in front of the green on the par-3 fourteenth hole. Tee shots must carry a bulkheaded pond to find the putting surface. The green is wide, but not very deep.
15Hole #15Par 4 390 Yards
A long tee shot over baha grass to the right side of the fairway avoids a waste bunker and gives the best angle for the second shot. A mid-to-long iron will be needed to reach a long, thin green protected by water.
16Hole #16Par 5 466 Yards
Hole No. 16 is unusual in that the cart path melds into the waste bunker, which is made from crushed oyster shells, and comes out the other side. The par-5 is a slight dogleg right and is a possible two shotter, with the longest green on the course.
17Hole #17Par 3 165 Yards
Hole No. 17 is probably the most difficult par-3 on the Crossings course. The green sits above baha grass and bunkers, and golfers' tee shots need to stay away from trouble to avoid big scores.
18Hole #18Par 4 404 Yards
The tee shot on the par-4 eighteenth hole will need to be a good one, especially if the tournament lead is in balance. A long iron will be needed to avoid the three bunkers surrounding the green.
