Hole Description

This par 4 plays slightly uphill into the wind and through a grove of ficus trees. A large bunker protects the left-­‐hand side of the fairway. Three (3) bunkers protect the green area, which is nestled in some of the course’s largest stands of trees.
A medium-­‐length par 4 that plays slightly downhill. The second shot plays uphill to a small green with many contours. The little pot bunker to the left of the green will capture many golf balls.
The longest par 3 on the golf course has wetlands surrounding the front and back of the greens. From the tee, you have a view of the course and waters of The Bahamas.
This long par 5 is very reachable for the big hitters because it plays predominately downwind. The tee shot is demanding and narrow with two (2) bunkers on the left and one on the right in the landing area. Bunkers on both sides protect the green.
This is a long, slightly uphill par 3. The green is protected in front by deep bunkers on both sides and a deep bunker in the rear. The green is undulating and somewhat demanding.
The tee shot on this short par 4 is protected by a huge, dramatic bunker down the entire right-­‐ hand side and palm trees on the left. The green, which is the smallest on the course, is somewhat hidden by a hillside and protected by two small bunkers on the left.
This shortish par 5 has a narrow driving area protected on the left by water and on the right by a large bunker. Two bunkers, 30 yards short of this somewhat hidden green, control the second shot. The conservative approach is to lay up short of the bunkers, allowing for an easy pitch. The risk/reward challenge is to play between or over the bunkers, trying to reach in two.
This is the shortest par 4 on the course but has the largest green. The hole plays entirely along the ocean and along the beach. It usually plays into the wind, but under the right conditions it can be driven by the longest of hitters. The green is large, well-­‐contoured, and well-­‐bunkered.
A par 4, water exists entirely on the left-­‐hand side of both the tee shot and second shot. A small bunker protects the front right portion of the green.
