This is a hillside layout with two 18-hole golf courses, the AB Course and the CD Course. The AB is more challenging than CD because it is longer. The AB course is almost 7200 yards long with 4 par 4s over 450 yards, so big drives off the tee are a must to have a good score. The front 9 is somewhat monotonous while the back 9 varies. Each hole is long but hazards don’t often come into play, therefore, you don’t feel challenged despite the total yardages. I think that the official course rating of 74.6 should be around 73.0.

A slight dogleg to the right. The green is protected by bunkers on both sides. The view of the green and the mountain behind it is superb when you hit the second shot.

A straight, relatively short par 4. The tee shot is downhill. The best route off the tee is to hit to the right side of the fairway. When you hit to the left side, water and bunkers will come into play.

A dogleg to the right with a lake on the right and OB on the left. A long hitter can hit the green in 2 by making a shortcut over the lake on the second shot. Bunkers are well positioned on both sides of the green that slopes from the back to the front.
