At 422 yards, the par second is a really tough hole. No choice at this one, only a long straight drive will leave any chance of getting home in two. The approach is played uphill avoiding two bunkers 40 yards short of a very tricky green.
The third hole is a 172-yard par 3 where you do need enough club to ensure you hit the centre of the target. If you find the very deep hollow at the front, you will have a devil of a chip to contend with. Also bear in mind the two bunkers on the right of the green.
The drive at the fourth is from an elevated tee to quite a generous fairway. This 377-yard par 4 is one of the easier holes on the course and providing you find the fairway, a good birdie chance. Favour right of centre from the tee to leave a slightly uphill approach to a green sloping back to front, defended bunkers left and right.
The first of the intimidating drives is at the fifth where a carry of about 180 yards is needed to make the fairway. There is a deep ravine full of trees, bushes, rough and water in front of the tee, all combining to put that little extra pressure on your golf swing. This par 4 is just under 400 yards, so ignore what’s in front of you and a good drive will leave a 7 or 8 iron to the green.
The remaining holes will be added soon.
