A good drive avoiding the out of bound on the right and the bunker on the left should set up a relatively small approach to the green. The green is multi-tiered and it is important to be on the right level for a chance at birdie.
HANDICAP INDEX: 17
A short par 5. Avoid the bunker on the left from the tee and you might be able to reach this green in two shots if the wind is favourable. The green is well guarded with bunkers. Flag on the top level makes this hole challenging.
HANDICAP INDEX: 9
A reachable par 4 if you can miss all the massive bunkers from the tee and the wind is on your back.The green is amongst the toughest of any hole on the course with bunkers surrounding it and a giant rise that guards the back hole locations. Do not be long on the approach especially to a back flag.
HANDICAP INDEX: 15
An intimidating Par 3 with water all the way up till the green. The green has a big hollow in the middle and cannot be taken lightly. A miss to the right of the green will give you a chance to save par on this difficult hole.
HANDICAP INDEX: 13
Beware of the bunkers and the out of bounds on both sides with the drive. Only the long hitters can think of reaching this green in two shots because of the water hazard short of the green. A flag on the right side of the green makes for an intimidating approach shot.
HANDICAP INDEX: 1
The toughest hole on the course. With Out of bounds on the right and water running along the left side, keeping the tee shot in play is of the highest priority. This leads to an even more challenging approach over the trees with anything left being in the water.
HANDICAP INDEX: 5
This straight forward Par 4 tends to play longer than its yardage due to the elevated green. Beware of the Out of Bounds on the right from the tee. The green has two levels and a two putt cannot be taken for granted if the approach is on the wrong level.
HANDICAP INDEX: 7
