The 1st hole, which runs straight away from the clubhouse, is a long opening hole with a generous fairway. A well struck drive short of the fairway bunkers will leave you around 190 yards to the centre of the green. The green is large and guarded by two bunkers on the left side and one front right. Club selection is important if the flag is towards the back.
Now a par 5 after being lengthened in 2012 it needs a nice drive avoiding the bunker on the left, depending on how far you can drive the ball. You can be brave and take on the cross bunkers or lay up and leave yourself anything from 5 Iron to Pitching Wedge to this tricky two tier green.
A lovely par 3 and the first one you'll come to. Be sure to check the wind direction as it can easily catch you out. Usually take one club more and try to get past the middle of the green which is the widest part. Mis-directed shots will be swallowed by the bunkers surrounding the left and right side of the green.
Turning back to the left the 4th is a very tight par 4 that is not too long if you are accurate. However, if wayward off the tee you can be blocked out by the trees. The second shot in always plays slightly shorter. The green, protected by a bunker running down the right-hand side, has a mound which runs at an angle.
The hardest hole on the course is a very long Par 4 that winds its way around to the right. So a good drive is needed up the left as it leaves you with a view of the green. You can then either take on the cross bunkers or layup. This will leave a fairly long 3rd shot but it is stroke index 1 so most people get a shot.
Nice short par 4 following on from the tough 5th hole but tricky green that is very fast from front to back. A narrow fairway with 'out of bounds' to the right all the way to the green. Trees will gather the mis-hit drive on the right blocking your path to the green.
Good par 4 that needs a solid tee shot avoiding the out of bounds on the right. You then have a tricky second with a big greenside bunker on the right and a fast green that slopes from right to left & front to back.
The second par 3 is an outstanding hole which drops down some 100 feet to a well guarded green. Take one club less to allow for the change in elevation. A tee shot that clears the central bunkers will have a chance of running to this small green. Par is a great score on this hole.
A slightly uphill dogleg to the left Par 4. Again, accuracy is the key off the tee to avoid the bunker on the left side of the fairway. Take one more club for the approach shot but be careful, the bunker on the right comes in more than you can see and catches lots of shots.
A strong par 4 to start the back 9 but being stroke index 2 most players will receive a shot. With the fairway sloping from right to left and the out of bounds on the right this is another hole that requires an accurate hit from the tee. The approach plays slightly shorter than it looks but beware of the deep bunker to the left side of the green and out of bounds through the back.
The first priority is to keep away from the fairway bunker on the right. If you can carry it from the tee shot it will leave you a mid-Iron to a green that slopes from back to front. Focus on the yardage for your approach as a ball hit to the back of the green will leave a very fast putt.
The tee elevation will tempt you to go for a big drive but with trees lining both sides of the fairway caution is required. Favour the left side for your approach as a deep bunker guards the front right portion of the green.
The 14th fairway slopes harshly from left to right. The longer your tee shot the flatter the lie will be for your approach shot. Your main challenge here is the contouring of the green as it slopes sharply from back left to front right. Club selection is paramount to leave yourself an uphill putt.
A Superb driving hole that you can really open your shoulders on. A shallow fairway bunker on the right is ready to catch the errant tee shot so favour the left side from the tee. Take an extra club for your approach as this plays slightly uphill and make sure that you leave yourself on the right side of this large narrow green.
The second par 5 is a long right to left dogleg that undulates slightly towards the green. Long hitters can reach in two but have to be careful of the long grass and bushes found green side. Shorter hitters need to plot their way around the dogleg to leave a view to a fairly flat green.
A tricky par 4 that doglegs from right to left with a fairway that slopes from left to right. The safe option from the tee is up the right half which leaves a long iron to a testing green. Long hitters can cut the corner from the tee to set up a birdie opportunity but check the pin position as the green is very undulating.
A long straight drive here will certainly offer the opportunity for a birdie on this relatively short par 5. Long hitters can reach in two but will need to avoid the deep bunkers that surround the green. Shorter hitters will need to avoid the cross ridge in the fairway with their approaches as their ball can be easily redirected to the bunker on the right. The green is fairly large and slopes slightly from back to front.
