PAR 4

How to plays?

Your tee shot carries across a channel, which separates the men and ladies tee complex from the fairway. Near the first landing area on the right side are the sand bunkers. As you make it to your next landing area, you will encounter a grassy swale, which separates the green approach from the fairway. The green is narrow but deep and has a large sand bunker to the left with grassy hollows to the back and right side. #1 tee starts at the clubhouse.

PAR 5

How to plays?

Probably, the most difficult hole on the course. The men’s tee shot carries across a sandy channel. The ladies’ tee is just next to the right. The first landing area puts you between two sand bunkers to the right and the third to the left. If this is not enough, a dogleg left awaits you, as well as a rocky channel, which separates the fairway. Your second shot outs you in position for the green but to the left is a monster sand bunker with boulder outcroppings. The green has two bunkers on its left, and has one on the back right.

How to plays?

A challenging hole from the beginning as the first shot puts you in a “Bottleneck”. A large sand bunker lies directly to the left and narrows the fairway considerably. After this, there are several grassy low areas on both sides and your second shot will be easier with a wider landing area. To the left of the green are two large grassy hollows and to right are two sand bunkers. The green has plenty of movement and is of a good size. A lake and a series of pools run the length of the hole.

A very long par 4 with several challenges. Men’s tee shot carries over a rocky channel, with the ladies’ tee being over and to the right. The fairway is narrow at the first landing area but quickly widens out. A rocky channel runs the entire right side and half way down on the left, a sandy channel starts. The second shot sets you up for the green, with grassy swale on both sides. The green is spectacular with a “False Front” and 3 meters of elevation change. Grassy hollows surround the green.

Another candidate for “the most difficult hole” award. The pro’s tee and members’ tee are on one side of a deep, rocky channel and the men’s tee and ladies’ tee lie ahead slightly to the right. There is a sharp dogleg to the left just ahead of the first landing area, with a channel dividing the fairway. Your second shot carries this channel width and small lakes to the right hand side of the hole. A tree partially blocks your approach to the green and just before lift a sand bunker to the left side of the fairway. The green has a sand bunker to the back right, with a grassy swale to the back left. There are two lakes that border the left side of the hole and a channel. A refreshment center is located at the pro’s tee area.

The shot from the pro’s tee and members’ tee, which is separated from the men’s tee and ladies’ tee by a channel, is entirely across water. The same holds tees for the men and ladies. A large lake is carried by your first shot. A series of four large sand bunkers along the left side of the fairway near the first landing area, and another large lake on the right side of the hole, really makes you work. As you take your second shot with a slight turn to the right, the green approach hits you. The sand bunkers on each side are really tough. The green is of good size with gracious movement.
