Cinnabar Canyon Course

This is considered the easier of the three courses at cinnabar and probably so, but it is still very challenging. You are up and down several hundred feet from bottom to top. It is the greenest of the three courses. A few of the holes have very little level ground in the fairway. Elevated greens that slope hard in many cases and fast.
The 6th is a long hard par five with a nasty little barranca running across at about 350 yards. The 2nd shot is to an almost impossible fairway that seems as though it is 5 feet wide and slanting hard left
7 is a par 4 straight up a hill. Not long but green invisable for most of the trek.
9 requires a pretty substantial blast out over wild grasses and brush as it falls 100 feet down to a fairway that from the back tees must be over 220 yards out. Cheating to the right will save you balls but will turn a relative short par 5 into a long one.

Definitely play Cinnibar - but not this 9

This is an example of trying to get too much out of a good thing. The other two 9's at Cinnibar are great plays, but this 9 isn't worth the time or money. The first hole is an okay slight dogleg right par 4. Then the tricked out silliness begins with forced layups, a massive Oak tree dead center in the fairway, a sand wedge tee shot, zig zag par 5, and the steepest uphill fairway i've ever seen. When you make your Cinnibar reservation, be certain to confirm that you are playing the Lake and Mountain courses.
