The signature hole is Creek #3 Hole #3 at Mill Creek called the Heart of Texas.  The green shaped of a heart with the Tee Box like an Arrow.  It is a par 4 with 289 yards from Red tees and 340 from the blues.  There is a heart shaped sand trap at the top of the hill dropping down to this green.  Great hole full of traps and trouble. 
This shows the front of my home looking through to the Heart of Texas golf hole showing the sand trap at the top of the hill leading to the green.  I have a big picture window in back that looks out over the fairway and valley in a distant. 
This is one of the hardest holes on the course Creek #1 Hole #4 with a dog leg fairway to a small drainage area in front of tee, trees on either side of fairway. This hole is 413 yards from the blues and a Par 4 with 372 from the reds and par 5.  The trouble is a fairway that slopes to the creek to an elevated rock encrusted bank watch out for the sand trap and out of bounds behind the green.  One tough hole to make par.
Typical design of Robert Trent Jones Jr. is leaving a tree in the Fairway.  This is hole #9 on Creek #3 430 yards from blue tees, 347 from red tees and Par 4.  One tough hole with trees lining the fairway all the way to the green guarded by sand traps and a tricky green.
