A View from the clubhouse
 
This flat course was formerly called Natural Park Ramindra until 2003. The course is characterized by the challenging nature, typical of Jack Nicklaus – design. Many holes have sandy wastes(tremendously long fairway bunkers), deep bunkers and water hazards. Huge lakes come into play on almost half the holes, requiring courage and accuracy.


1st  Par 4 409 yards
There is a 400- yard, tremendously long bunker on the right of the fairway, which impresses players. The bunker even extends into the right side of the slightly elevated green.

A slight dogleg to the right with the green swung further to the right. A long bunker on the right side of the fairway comes into play on this hole. There is a big mound in front of the green, so you should drive to the left side in order to have a clear view of the pin on the next shot. Watch out for the bunkers at the back of the green, too.
