Hole Description

Hole01
A slight downhill tee sets up a chance to reach this par-5 in two. The two-tiered green has a strong undulation, avoid being above the pin at all costs. A great birdie opportunity hole.
Hole02
A short par-4 . Keeping the tee shot in the center or right of the fairway is more important than how far one carries it. Even with a short second shot, the elevated green makes it difficult to see the green. The green has a gentle uphill undulation from front to back and to the left.
Hole03
A slight left dogleg par-4. Best to hit the tee shot to the right of the fairway. Small uphill green with little undulation.
Hole04
A straight par-4. Keep the tee shot left of the fairway by aiming left. The elevated green has a slight uphill slope in the front, but the backside is faster than it looks.
Hole05
The only hole with the same elevation from tee to green. A relatively short hole but the sand trap in front of the green may seem a bit intimidating, but the green is large and players can take dead aim for the pin.
Hole06
The longest par-4. An accurate second shot will be required since it slopes to the left. Miss the green, and one will end up in a deep guard bunker. From the 100 yard mark a 10 meter elevated green awaits. There’s little undulation but avoid landing the ball pin high.
Hole07
The only dogleg right par-5. There are trees and a ravine to the right, but a player confident in distance and accuracy can take a short cut over the right. This is where a player needs distance, accuracy and courage. The right hand guard bunker is deep and there is little undulation on the green.
Hole08
A five meter downhill par-3. Small green with undulation makes this a difficult hole.
Hole09
A slight dogleg right par-4. Aiming for the left side of the fairway is best. The uphill second shot makes it difficult to calculate the yardage for the next shot. A gentle uphill green with very little undulation.
