Pro Tip

A short par 4 opener that doglegs right about 100m before the green. The right hand side is defended by a copse and a ditch, as well as an out-of-bounds area which is the 9th hole. The bottom of the flag is not visible for the approach since the green is elevated. About 35m short of the green is a bunker at the foot of the slope and another guards the right front corner.

Pro Tip

At 391m off the raised back (white) tee this straight and flattish par 4 demands two long, accurate shots to reach the putting surface. A bunker just off the fairway can trap a hooked drive and two others are strategically placed at either side of the green.

Pro Tip

The longest par 3 on the card at 203m from the white tee, but only 121m for the ladies. A combination of length and precision is required to end up on the expansive roller-coaster green, with bunkers on each side, the left one being the larger of the two.

Pro Tip

A par 5 that is lined with pine-trees from tee to green. A small pond in front of the tee is merely a psychological hazard, and keeping to the fairway is the main secret. Mounds to the right of the speedy green can deflect a wayward approach away from that side.

Pro Tip

This 423m par 4 is stroke index 1 and is a slight dogleg left. Pines encroach on to the edge of the left hand side of the fairway and a long drive can reach a bunker to the right. A dip just before the green may hamper the long approach shot to an elongated green bunkered on either side.

Pro Tip

A tester of a par 3 as the green is set between a lake on the left and a bunker on the opposite side. The 26m long green which is narrow at the entrance accentuates the need for accuracy.

Pro Tip

Another challenging though not daunting par 4 and the last one in the pinewoods. Again a narrow fairway with some trees, especially on the left that can block out an errant tee-shot. On the approach the same difficulty arises on the right hand side and the green slopes generally from right to left where two small bunkers lurk in expectation.

Pro Tip

The wide open spaces tempt players to hit out on this par 5 that is reachable in two shots but the drive must be navigated clear of two bunkers on the left, between 218 and 187m from the green. A slight depression before the green can prevent a long second shot from rolling on to it.

Pro Tip

Short par 4 dogleg left where long hitters can clear both left hand side bunkers and set up a birdie chance by leaving a half wedge approach shot. Some danger with trees in the rough, mainly on the right. Also, take care with the undulations on the large, upward sloping green.

Pro Tip

Fairly straightforward par 4, 339m off the white tee. A drive with draw will steer away from the large bunker just off the fairway on the right, leaving a comfortable iron towards a green guarded by bunkers on either side.

Pro Tip

Tailored for the straight hitter, this par 5 includes three bunkers to trap off-line drives. Two more on the left, starting 58m from the front of the green, can force players to lay up short to allow for a full shot into the welcoming green that slopes up to the back.

Pro Tip

A fairway wood and mid- to short-iron shot are enough to land on the green on this par 4, only 317m from the back tee. Be careful with putts from the back down to the front as this green tends to be fast and has subtle breaks.

Pro Tip

It’s advisable not to under-club on this par 3 in order to clear the large bunker that fronts the green which has its widest portion up towards the back. The narrow entrance to the sloping green is protected on the right by another bunker.

Pro Tip

On this short par 4 it is an advantage to clear the two bunkers on either side of the fairway between 80 and 100m from the green as the approach must be played with a high-lofted iron. This is because the green is offset awkwardly to the right and the bunkering on both sides offers a narrow target.

Pro Tip

A short par 3 to a green surrounded by five bunkers, but an interesting challenge. Most players are content with two putts on the treacherous two-tiered putting surface which slopes from top right to bottom left.

Pro Tip

At stroke index 2, this 378m hole can cause problems to anyone playing it for the first time. The green is not visible from the tee as the fairway rises steadily for the first 230m and then slopes downwards. Aim to land your drive in the triangle formed by three bunkers just off the fairway. The gently undulating green is protected by three more bunkers but the narrow entrance will test your long approach play especially if the shot is blind.

Pro Tip

A large lake on the right or two bunkers on the opposite side can attract an off-line drive on this short par 4. The green, which is 41m from front to back, is within reach of an uphill 9-iron or wedge approach.

Pro Tip

A good challenging par 5 closing hole measuring 504m from the white tee. There is not much margin for error off the tee: out of bounds right and a tight landing area between a long lake left and a bunker at the edge of the fairway. The second shot must stay right to keep away from the water which extends close to the left hand side of the green. An iron shot is recommended until one can see the lie of the land and then it is a wedge approach to get home.
