The hardest hole on the course. A difficult two shot Par 4 that requires a good drive to the right of the fairway. Don't go for too much with your approach.Consider laying up in front of the green and relying on your short game to make Par. Any shot hit left of the green will find the water hazard.
A big dog-leg right, avoid the trees and bunker on the left of the fairway and and let the left-to-right slope feed your ball closer to the green. Green side bunkers make this a tough approach, so aim for the centre of the green.
A good tee shot is required forthis lengthy Par 4 dog-leg right. Long hitters will benefit from hitting a fade-off of this tee. If your approach finishes toward the back of the green above the flag, take note, this green is fast coming back down the slope.
Dont let looks deceive. Rated the toughest Par 3 on the course, your tee shot will always get a bit of extra roll when landing on the green. The green slopes away from the tee box, and from right to left. Aim right of the pin and let the slope of the green do the rest.
Arguably the most beautiful hole on the course. This Par 5has a right-to-left sloping fairway and will feed any ball hit out right back to the centre. Lay up short of the fairway bunker and water hazard, and let your short game get you the Par. The tall trees which stop before the green, offer a lot of wind protection. So when approacjhing the green, allow for the wind.
Extended fairway bunkers take the drive out of play for longer hitters. Aom for the centre of the fairway off the tee. Make sure you have enough club on ypour approach to avoid the bunker guarding the front of ther green.
Any shot hit left of this Par 4 is punished, so aim right off the tee. There is ample room beyond the tell treeon the right of the fairway. The approach to an elevated green can run off into the right bunker. The safe approach is to favor the left side of the green.
Much like the 9th hole, this ia a short and tricky Par 4. If you risk going for the green off the tee, beware of the out of bounds left, and a hazard and out of bounds on the right. The prudent play here would be to lay up short of the fairway bunkers.
One of the best finishing holes in the country!
This testing Par 5 will make or break a round, The famously long bunker flanking the right side of the fairway, coupled with the lagoon makes this a challenging teeshot, so aim a little to the left. Once you are on the fairway the safe play is, again, to aim to the left and let your short game do the work.
