A very demanding Par 4. With water all down the left side and fairway bunkers to the right, accuracy with length will be rewarded. A well-placed tee shot should leave 150-200 yards to the centre of this multi-tiered green.
This large green is well guarded by a perfectly placed bunker front right. Take an extra club to avoid a difficult bunker shot.
The tee shot should favour the right side of the fairway, avoiding the fairway bunker though. The hole is deceptively long but the fairway is certainly wide enough. The large inviting green that slopes to the fairway can be very misleading. Avoid the bunker short left but too much club will find the hidden bunker behind the green. The middle of the green has birdie opportunity to any hole location.
Similar to #3 a well positioned 235 yard tee shot short of the fairway bunkers is optimal. This will avoid the narrow section of the fairway and encroaching lateral hazard on both sides. This leaves a 140-160 yard approach into a tricky green that is long and rises from front to back. Hitting into the deep green side bunkers or long can make Par a tough accomplishment. Front to middle of this green is a smart shot.
A misleading slightly uphill Par 3. Take an extra club to avoid the large bunker short right. A well hit tee short to the back right portion of the green is a safe play. The bunker on the left also m makes for a difficult up and down. You are better long than short on this hole.
The first hole is a long slight dogleg right par 5 that can play as long as 605 yards from the black tee box. The hole should be played as a three shot par 5 for both long and short hitters. The play off the tee shot is to lay back shot of the three fairway bunkers as this is the widest area of fairway on the hole.
The green is surrounded with trouble so strategically placing the lay up shot to the right side of the fairway will leave the easier approach shot. The green is well protected with a water hazard short left, bunker long, and a closely mown collection area right. Pin position will dictate how aggressive the approach shot can be. If the pin is on the back shelf or the back left corner, middle of the green is a smart play. If you happen to steal a birdie be grateful, but a par 5 score is definitely above satisfactory.
