A slight dogleg to the left. Tee shot is downhill and the second & third shots are uphill. There are bushes along the left of the fairway and the fairway narrows as it gets closer to the two-tiered, narrow green.

A downhill sharp dogleg to the right. The fairway drops greatly on the second shot. Long hitters can drive down to the edge of the green because of strong down slope.

An excellent par 3 with the beautifl backdrop and natural waterfall. Bunkers and a creek surrounds green, froming an island green. The creek left and right combine if front of the green to one water fall.

 
17th Par 4 541 yards
An uphill, slight dogleg to the right with O.B. on the right. Fairway bunkers are well positioned. The green slopes a lot from left to right. The layout of this hole is excellent except for the bunker guarding the left side of the green, which I think is not necessary. Although you can chip nicely from this bunker, the ball will easily roll down off the green because of the strong downhill slope.
