A long, almost straight par 5. The tee shot is downhill and the narrow fairway is guarded on the right by OB and on the left by trees. 250 yards off the tee, the bunker on the left half of the fairway comes into play. Pay attention to the pond facing the right side of the fairway when you hit the second shot.

The course is 40 minutes from Kaohsiung City by car. The clubhouse is excellent and comfortable, and the caddies were well trained. All cadies must pass caddie tests every 2 weeks. If they fail, they are suspended for 2 weeks: consequently, the overall quality of the caddies improves.
