1st: Positioning of the tee shot is important here. The left side of the fairway gives you the ideal angle into the green. Be careful not to leak your approach shot to the right as a deep bunker awaits.

2nd: A mid to short iron approach to a green well protected on all sides by bunkers. The green is generous in size but beware of it’s subtle borrows.

3rd: An intimidating tee shot with out of bounds left and right. Long hitters can take a dangerous line over the tree at the angle of the dog-leg to give themselves a chance to reach in 2 shots. Medium to short hitters should keep their first and second shots down the left side to avoild the worst rough and bunkers. Try to keep the approach shot below the hole on this sloping green as a downhill putt here is one of the fastest on the course.

4th: A strong par 4. Be careful to avoid the hidden fairway bunkers on the right side of the fairway with your tee shot. Right of the green is not the place to go with your approach shot as you will find a wickedly sloping bunker, or face a difficult pitch to a downhill green.

5th: A strategic short par 4. Long hitters can hit a long iron or fairway wood into the left of the fairway to leave a short-iron approach. Distance judgement is tricky with the shot into the green. The putting surface slopes from front to back, so it is easy to go through the green with your approach, leaving a difficult chip from tangly rough.

6th: Once again, hidden fairway bunkers to left and right can make a seemingly good tee shot end up disappointing. A straight drive will leave a good birdie opportunity, although if you are too aggressive with your second shot, long rough awaits to the right of the fairway.

7th: For most players, this will require a long iron to a well protected green. The slopes on the green make a par here an excellent result.

8th: A wide fairway gives the opportunity to hit the Driver. Long rough to left and right, however, make the penalty for missing the fairway penal. A long approach shot needs to be well struck to avoid 6 bunkers approaching the green. 

9th: A tricky short par 4. The tee shot should be hit around 200 yards to a narrow gap between the trees. Anything left or right will leave the approach shot blocked out from the green. A straight tee shot will leave a short approach to a green protected by out of bounds to the right and deep bunkers to the left.

Hole By Hole

 

10th: Any drive drifting down the right side will leave a tough approach shot over the large green-side bunker. The left side of the fairway gives an easier route to the green but if you play too much down this side you will be out of bounds. 

11th: Only just over 100yards long but a very dangerous hole! Club selection is vital to a narrow green. Anything landing short will be caught by the deepest bunker on the course. 

12th: Played against the prevailing wind, this is a true 3 shot par 5. Out of bounds left and right for both the tee shot and the second shot make accuracy vital. 

13th: Long hitters will be able to shape the ball around the dog-leg here, but take on too much and the trees on the left hand side will block your route into the green. 

14th: It is possible to drive the green here, but anything short and left will find heavy rough. The safe tee shot is down the right hand side but this will leave a longer approach shot from a more difficult angle. 

15th: A long Par 4 and the most difficult hole on the course. To have a chance of reaching the green in 2 shots, the drive must carry the large mound on the right hand side of the fairway. Anything drifting right off this tee will find heavy rough. The sensible play for most golfers is down the left side to reach the green in 3 and hope for a single putt. 

16th: A brute of an uphill Par 3 that for most will require a Driver or Fairway wood. Anything missing the green to the left will leave a very difficult pitch to a downhill green. 

17th: A dangerous drive from the back tees that must make a 150 yard carry over a deep pit. A long drive will give the opportunity to reach the green in 2 shots, although some deep cross bunkers and a dry ditch will catch any poorly struck approach shots or a badly judged lay-up. 

18th: An heroic final tee shot could find this green, although danger lurks all around, with out of bounds only a few yards from the right side of the green and bunkers/thick rough to the left. The long sloping green often leads to a disappointing 3 putt to close the round, so distance must be judged carefully with your approach shot.
