A view from the clubhouse
  The course is flat and water comes into play on almost all holes. Not just water but also bunkers are nicely placed, so it is challenging course.

There are water hazards on the both sides, and a huge bunker on the right side of the fairway, so the landing area for your drive is limited. When you have a good tee shot, a par is not difficult on this hole.

A dogleg to the left with a carry of 200 yards over a pond. It’s best to hit the right side of the fairway in order to have a clear view of the second shot to the green. A par is not difficult on this hole, either, as long as you don’t make a mistake on your tee shot.

A long and very demanding par 3. Water borders both the left and the front sides of the green. If you are short or hook your shot, the ball will be in the water. To hit to the fairway right of the green is the safe option.

9th Par 4 449 yards
There is a lake on the right side of the green and the lake runs also from the right side of the green through the back of it. A long and accurate tee and second shots are needed on this long par 4.

A gentle dogleg to the left with a lake on the left. There is a huge bunker 200 yards off the green on the left side of the fairway.

13th  Par 4 431 yards
A slight dogleg to the left with a lake bordering the left side of the fairway. The green is small.

A par 3 with an island green typical of all Dye designed courses. This is a pretty hole but personally I like holes 6 and 14 (par 3s) because they are more challenging.
 
18th  Par 4 461 yards
A very long par 4. You need to hit both the tee and the second shots hard to reach the green in 2 but if you hit too much from right to left, your ball will end up in the lake facing the left side of the fairway. The green is well guarded by bunkers. The man-made waterfall next to the green was neat.
