Plan an Event
1st hole - 304 mts Par 4An easy short par 4 to begin with but care must be taken with the drive as there is water on both sides of the wide fairway. Most players may elect to play a long iron or a 3 wood which will still leave them a short iron shot to the green. This is a very real chance to start the round off with a birdie.
2nd hole - 345 mts Par 4A challenging drive is required to a dogleg right tree lined fairway. The pin position will determine the real difficulty of the hole as the green is guarded by two large bunkers and a lake on the right to catch the stray second shot.
3rd hole - 150 mts Par 3With the prevailing wind and a large sloping green, a good club selection will be needed to ensure par.
5th hole - 389 mts Par 4A birdie chance for big hitters. The hole can be shortened by keeping the ball as far left as possible but beware of the water that protects both sides of the fairway. The green is guarded by three bunkers but a chip and a putt for birdie is very possible.
5th hole - 389 mts Par 4The most difficult hole on the course. A very straight drive is the only solution to avoid the water hazards and to set up a challenging long iron to a well protected green.
6th hole - 457 mts Par 5A straightforward driving hole with water protecting the right-hand side of the fairway from the tee. The green can be made in two but there is very little landing area and three bunkers lie in wait for the less than perfect shot. Normally a safe second with an iron played short of the green and a good pitch is the safest way to try and make birdie.
7th hole - 177 mts Par 3This is the most challenging par 3 on the course. Normally against the wind a long iron will be needed to make the green which is protected on both sides by a bunker.
8th hole - 357 mts Par 4The tee shot must be played to the left-hand side of the fairway to have an easier line into the green. This is definitely a birdie chance.
9th hole - 344 mts Par 4A fairly short hole but it needs to be taken seriously. A good drive will leave a short approach to an elevated green. Any ball missing the putting surface will leave the player faced with a bunker, water or having to negotiate a difficult slope.
10 hole - 340 mts Par 4This right dogleg hole is protected by a pond on the right and a bunker on the left at the bend in the fairway. Once the tee shot has been negotiated, this is a definite birdie chance.
11 hole - 153 mts Par 3Although there is water between the tree and the green, the real difficulty will be the large, challenging, undulating green set into the trees. A well-judged tee shot is required.
12 hole - 364 mts Par 4Leaving the driver in the bag could be the best solution on this most attractive par 4. A well-positioned long iron or 3 wood will leave you a mid to short iron over the water to a large but narrow green.
13 hole - 457 mts Par 5Certainly a hole for long hitters. Although not the longest par 5 on the course it does have a very long carry over water to an elevated fairway. The fairway narrows as it approaches the green with a bunker guarding the right hand side. A great risk and reward hole.
14 hole - 376 mts Par 4This is a very tight drive with a bunker ready to catch the more ambitious player. Keeping the ball on the fairway is the secret to this hole that turns slightly to the right leaving a medium iron shot to the green. Two bunkers keep guard at this difficult sloping green.
15 hole - 343 mts Par 4The tee shot again is very important at this hole. There is a large tree situated on the corner of this left-hand dogleg which demands the drive be placed to the righthand side of the fairway. The green is slightly angled to the left of the player so make sure you hit enough club for the second shot. Keep an eye out for the water.
16 hole - 346 mts Par 4A straightforward par 4 that will always be regarded as a birdie opportunity. It has a most attractive teeing area that is surrounded by water and gives a marvellous example of the course’s characteristics.
17 hole - 152 mts Par 3A most spectacular par 3 with views overlooking the mountains and the sea. A mid to short iron over water will send the ball to a large undulating green guarded by two bunkers. The hardest part of this hole is not to 3 putt.
18 hole - 458 mts Par 5A great finishing hole. This dogleg par 5 demands a good long straight drive, preferably kept to the right-hand side of the fairway. From here, it will require a lot of courage, even for the boldest of players, to attempt the green in two. The large green which is set on a peninsular just below the clubhouse, is protected by three bunkers, one of which is set behind the green to catch the over hit shot. All the trials and tribulations can be easily seen from the Deer Hunter restaurant and bar.
