The first hole is a short, downhill par 4 of 350 yards. The narrow fairway will prevent the players from getting much closer than 10 yards to a narrow green guarded by deep slopes on all side. The two-tier green is relatively flat and easy to putt - a good hole to start with a birdie.
This par 4 of 384 yards makes a slight turn to the right. The fairway has bunkers to the left and a lake on the right and will require the players to play to an opening on the left side of the fairway center to have a free view of the green. This will leave an approach to the green from about 140 yards. The green has a mound in the center and is protected by bunkers.
This is the first par 5 - measuring 545 yards; it is the longest on the course. An ideal shot is to hit driver off the tee to the left fairway, leaving a wood or long iron to the highest part of the hill and a good view of the small green. This green is one of the most complicated on the course, especially when the hole is located on the right.
At 420 yards, this par 4 is one of the longest on the front nine. It turns to the left and has a lake that runs on that same side after the first 150 yards, crossing in front of the green. It is very important to stay on the fairway this hole to have an easier second shot to the green. A hole location on the front and back and left of the green are the most difficult.
This hole is one of the best on the course. The rise and turn to the left, are without doubt a challenge to accuracy. The best tee shot is played to the left center of the fairway. The green is protected with a slope at the front and a deep bunker to the right. This is the green with the most undulations on the front nine. This hole is par 4 of 405 yards.
The downhill par 3 of 170 yards offers a relatively easy approach the hole locations because of its spacious and open green. The secret to this hole is to account for the elevation change and choose the right club. A mistake missing the green long could be costly.
The last par 4(376 yards); of the front nine is a great birdie opportunity. The fairway is wide but tee shots must avoid the right bunkers or it could be costly. The green is one of the widest on the course and even with its small undulations; it is a green that can easily be attacked.
This par 3 is played long at 179 yards and demands accuracy. The green is protected by a lake to the left and the La Culebra River to the right as well as bunkers back and on the right. The green has three different levels and is difficult to put the ball to close to the hole when located at the back of the green.
This is a par 5 of 507 yards played uphill back towards the Club House. It is reachable in two shots if both long and precise. The Mesquite, the GCC course tree, protects against any shots left, and a deep bunker guards the right part of the green. The ideal lay-up third shot will be from about 80 yards. The green is relatively flat and easy to putt.
This par 5 of 475 yards is a dogleg left. From the tee you should try and place the ball slightly to the right for an opportunity to reach to the green in two shots. Dangerous bunkers and a deep slope in the left back surround the green. This hole gives you a great opportunity to start the back nine with a birdie.
Fairway bunkers and a narrow fairway demanding and accurate tee shot guard this relatively short par 4 of 336 yards. A fairway metal or long iron from the tee will leave players a short iron to the largest green on the course.
This straight par 4 from tee to green will play very long at 435 yards. Hitting a good driver will be very important to have an easier second shot, either with a hybrid or medium iron. The green is relatively flat but its undulations can be deceiving.
The first par 3 of the second nine is also the shortest in distance at 152 yards. This green is very challenging because of its two levels and pronounced slope from the back to the front. A large lake will catch any ball that doesn’t carry the green in the air.
Though it appears to be a straight par 4 (364 yards), the trees to the right of the tee make it necessary to hit the ball slightly to the left to find the center of the fairway. From the fairway players will hit short irons to two-tier green. A hole location on lower tier gives you the opportunity to spin the ball close and a hole location at the top requires a precise second shot to get the ball close.
It is the first of two par 4 (391 yards), dogleg left holes. Players will try to avoid the bunker that protects the left side, where the best shot is to keep the ball short and to the right, leaving a medium iron to the green. The green is well protected on both sides by bunkers. The green is relatively easy to putt.
This par 4 measures a mere 405 yards but will demand a good tee shot to avoid the big mesquite tree that protects it. The best tee shot is to the right of the fairway to have a clear view of the green that is protected by some Cassowary trees to the left. The green has undulations from the back to front.
This is the longest par 3 on the course at 223 yards it is also one of the most difficult because of the big eucalyptus trees that protect the left side of the green. Most of the players will be trying to reach the green with a hybrid or fairway metal. A hole located on the left side is very difficult to approach.
The last hole is a 521-yard par 5 that can be reached in two shots if the players are able to avoid the Ceiba on the left side of the fairway. The green is protected with bunkers to the left and by a big Jacaranda tree. This could be the hardest green because of its pronounced undulations.
