Long opener, reachable in two for the long hitters. Tee shot important for a good start.
Dog-leg to the left. Try and keep tee shot left of the tree in the fairway and the approach shot plays long.
Shortest hole on the course with a long green. Choose the right club to give yourself a birdie chance. Beware of the bunker on the right of the green.
Straight forward par 5. Birdie chance for the long hitters. Watch out for the slope on the right hand side of the green.
Tight shot here. Make sure you have enough club on the approach shot to clear slope on the front of the green.
Another tight drive makes the second shot a lot easier. Stay away from the conifers on the right.
Long Par 3. Take more club than you think. Very tricky green with long slope from back to front.
Make sure your drive misses both sets of trees. Good approach shot needed. Tough back pin position. This green has two tiers.
Tee shot to the left of the bunker sets you up for the rest of the hole. Big green with trouble on the left.
Toughest hole on the course. A long drive and accurate second shot needed to make a good score. Stay away from the bunkers on the right.
Another tough hole. Keep out of the ditch with your drive. Do not take too much off the dog-leg. Big hitters stay clear of the reservoir.
A long Par 3 that needs a good shot to hold the green as the green is elevated. A two tiered green that must not be taken for granted.
Short Par 4. Play it as you see it. Long rough down the left and bunkers down the right are there to punish wayward drives.
Similar in length to the 13th but a lot more tricky. Two bunkers and a big tree punishing tee shots right of the fairway and out of bounds on the left make this a tough driving hole. A good tee shot will leave an easier second shot.
Three tiered green that depending on where the pin is, could play three different clubs. Bunkers either side of the green waiting for wayward approaches.
Tough tee shot. If you can shape the ball from right to left, then this is going to help. You can cut a lot of length off by cutting the corner with your tee shot. Stay out of the conifers with approach shot. Club selection for approach is important as green is very long.
Two Par 5's to finish. Another tough tee shot, hole dog-legs from left to right with two ditches. Big hitters will have to make a decision whether or not to carry the first ditch. Club choice important for second shot as second ditch will come into play. Big hitters will be able to hit this in two, for those attempting to hit the green in two, the second shot is uphill to a wide elevated green so plays longer.
Straight Par 5. Birdie chance for the long hitters. Short hitters will have a ditch in play for their second shot, so club choice is important. Big green with bunkers on either side.
