A hillside course at the foothill of a mountain there are 27 holes in total in this hillside course at the foot of a mountain. Narrow fairways and abundant hazards ensures the course is particularly demanding, while the natural surroundings make it a very pleasant place to play. The annual PGA “Typhong Open” is held here.

1st  Par 5 557 yards
A slight dogleg to the left with OB on the left of the hole. The tee shot is downhill. The closer to the green, the narrower the hole becomes. Beware of careful for OB on the left & right for the second and third shots. The bunkers guard the green.

A pretty par 4 with creeks on both sides of the fairway. The second shot is over the creek.

A par 3 over a pond. The pond itself is not that well in play but the green with the pond looks really charming.

A slight dogleg to the right, excellent par 4. A creek crosses the fairway at a slant where the tee shot lands. To go over the bridge, you need to fly 220 yards, and to go over the left edge of the fairway a 270-yard shot is needed. The green is slightly elevated. Playing this hole makes you feel particularly close to nature.

A straight par 4 with the pond on the right side of the hole. The tee shot is intimidating because it looks like as if the woods ahead surround the fairway. There is a bunker on the left of the fairway 240 yards off the tee. When the pin position is on the right, the bunker in the front of the green is in play; when the pin is on the left, the bunker behind the green is in play.

19th hole
It takes a little less than one hour from Kaohsiung City by car.
