This medium-length starting par 4 that require the golfer to hit down the left side of the fairway which is guarded by two bunkers. This sets up the best angle into the green. The putting surface is guarded by bunkers right and left but has a small fairway pad behind the back right portion of the green so players going long can hopefully chip back to save par. Club selection on the second shot will be critical here
This 523 meters par 5 will play as a two-or three-shot par 5 depending upon the wind direction. Players keeping the ball left will also take some of the yardage off the hole and make it easier to reach in two. The second landing area is guarded by a small bunker in the middle of the fairway. Players need to keep their shots left of this bunker to leave the shortest shot into the green with the best angle. The green is slightly elevated with a fairway bail-out area to the right side and out in front but is fairly large and should not be too difficult to hold a shot.
At 139 meters, this par 3 is the shortest hole on the golf course. The green is rather skinny and long, which will require the player to choose their club wisely. The green is guarded along the left side with a large greenside bunker and the front right corner with a smaller bunker. There is a grassy hollow to the right for those players bailing out away from the greenside bunker
This short par 4 is 351 meters long from the back tee and will require the player to hit their tee shot down the left side in order to avoid hitting over the greenside bunkers. There is little trouble down the right side of the fairway but the green is guarded by bunkers along the right side and approach shots from this side of the fairway will not have as much green depth to work with as the left side of the fairway. The green has a strong valley working through the middle of it and will present the golfer with some tricky two putts if they are not close to the pin on their approach shot.
This hole presents the golfer with a few choices off the tee. The best angle into the green is from the left side of the fairway but the golfer will have to contend with the left fairway bunker as well as the lake in order to reach this area. Those players hoping for a safer but short second shot will need to carry their tee shot over the crossing bunkers along the right side of the fairway but will be left with a second shot over the greenside bunker. The most conservative tee shot would be short of the bunkers which will leave a long second shot over the greenside bunker. The green accepts a short left bail-out and is guarded by a bunker in front and a small bunker behind
This is the last par 3 on the golf course and plays 183 meters from the back tee. The green is fairly large and is set off the lake by the fairway that runs up the right side and surrounds the right greenside bunker. The best trajectory will be a left to right shot to work with the angle of the green. There is a bunker behind the green to catch any errant shots and from this bunker, it will be very difficult to keep the ball close to any back pins. The player will need to choose their club wisely since the green is 40 yards deep.
The last par 5 on the front nine, this golf hole requires an accurate tee shot to a narrow landing area guarded along the right side by a fairway bunker. The players second shot is best played down the right side close to the lake and right fairway bunker. The farther down the fairway the shot is played, the better the angle will be on the third shot into the green. The green is guarded on the front right corner with a small pot bunker but the rest of the green is surrounded by fairway
At 338 meters, this is the shortest par 4 on the front nine and should present a good birdie opportunity for any player that finds themselves down in the match. The back half of this green sets up as a slight bowl and receives shots the best from the right side of the fairway which is guarded by a lake. For those players that want to play away from the lake, they will need to carry the crossing bunkers along the left side of the fairway to leave a short second shot or play short of these bunkers and leave a longer second shot with a tougher angle into the green. The green is guarded front and right by a small bunker.
This hole is the longest par 4 on the golf course at 410 meters from the back tees. The tee shot is guarded by a fairway bunker on boths sides of the fairway but the area is wide enough to allow the player to try to hit it as far down the fairway as possible. The second shot will be quite long for most players but the fairway continues around the right side of the green so players can use this as a bail-out area when going for the green with a fairway wood or long iron. Any player hitting their shot too far right may also find one of two bunkers guarding this bail-out area. The green is long and skinny and guarded by two bunkers along the left side. A par on this hole will seem like a birdie.
This medium-length, starting par 4 The back nine start off with a medium-length par 4 The fairway is framed with bunkers on both sides which set up a split strategy depending upon pin location. If the pin is located back left on the green then the player will need to drive the ball as close to the bunker on the right to achieve the best angle into the green. If the pin is located in the middle or on the right side of the green, then the player can hit down the left side of the fairway in order to use the contours of the green at the best angle.
This is the first par 3 on the back nine of the golf course, this golf hole requires the golfer to hit a left to right trajectory in order to take advantage of the depth of the green which goes in the same direction. A sandy waste guards the green along the right side and grassy hollows will catch any errant shots of those bailing away from the sandy waste. The lake along the right side should not create too much trouble unless the pin is located on the back right of the green.
This short par 4 allows the golfer to take on as much of the lake as they want in order to achieve the shortest yardage into the green. Keeping the golf ball along the lake edge of the fairway will achieve the best angle into the green but those overclubbing and hitting through the fairway will need to come in over the greenside bunker to a shallow green protected by bunkers in front and behind.
The shortest par 5 on the golf course, this 511 meters hole can play even shorter if the player hits down the right side of the fairway as close to the fairway bunkers as possible. The player will now need to decide where to place their second shot or if they want to go for the green which is heavily guarded in front by a bunker. Those choosing a more conservative approach can lay up in front of the left fairway bunker which leaves a longer third shot but with a good angle into the green. The shortest third shot is best so that the player can get as close as possible to the pin since the putting surface has a lot of movement and the farther away from the pin, the more difficult it will be to save par.
At only 304 meters, this par 4-golf hole is the shortest on the course. The player will need to make a decision here on whether to hit a driver or not. The green is reachable from the tee but is heavily guarded by bunkers. Those choosing a more conservative approach can by back with a 3-wood or long iron to keep the bunkers out of play. The green is very small and will be difficult to find with a longer approach shot.
With a lake going down the entire left side of this medium length par 4, most players will want to keep their tee shot down the right side. A fairway bunkers guards this side of the fairway and will catch those hitting too far away from the lake. Those landing just inside this bunker will be which is guarded along the left side with a bunker and the lake. A fairway collection area to the right of the green will allow a more conservative player to bail-out and then chip back onto the putting surface and sink their putt to hopefully save par.
This is the last and longest par 3 on the golf course at 211 meters from black tee. The lake in front should not create too much trouble since the green is set back from the lake by a small fairway. The green is guarded on the right side by a bunker and any player going through the green will find a tough shot back out of a grassy hollow to a green pitching away from them.
This 590 meters par 5 is the longest golf hole on the golf course. The player that plays the entire hole down the right side of the fairway will be able to reduce the yardage slightly but must keep their ball out of the fairway bunkers guarding both sides of fairway. The best angle into the green for the third shot is from the right side of the second landing area. The green is heavily guarded left and right but the green is fairly large and should receive most shots well.
This finishing hole is the longest par 4 on the front nine, this 417 meters golf hole will require the player to hit their tee shot down the right side of the fairway in order to have the best angle into the green. Those hitting left will need to hit their second shot over the greenside bunker and the lake that runs along the left side of the green. Those players choosing a more conservative approach can hit out to the right of the green but will need to hit their third shot over a small pot bunker guarding the right side of the putting surface and then sink their putt to save par.
