1st Hole – Par 4 - White 413, Yellow 400, Red 349

Time to open your shoulders! The perfect drive for the right-hander is a gentle fade inside the line of the fairway bunker. A long drive with a draw will run out of the fairway and possibly into a water hazard. A mid-iron approach requires accuracy to a green guarded by bunkers.

2nd Hole – Par 4 - White 448, Yellow 427, Red 390

Hardest to reach in regulation. Anything left of the fairway blocks a second shot at the green. The right side of the fairway will give the perfect line into the green which is set diagonally to the rest of the hole. A par is not at all embarrassing on this hole.

3rd Hole – Par 4 - White 308, Yellow 293, Red 280

A short hole within reach for the longest hitters in summer, but beware of the fairway trap which will gather up any drives off line to the right. This will leave you with the hardest shot in golf, a 60 yard bunker shot! Precise putting is required on the two-tiered green.

4th Hole – Par 4 - White 369, Yellow 356, Red 303

Long and straight will give you a vital advantage here as a bunker, ditches and hedges come into play. A large bunker guards the approach to the green so a loftier shot will prevail but be careful with your distance as this shot can be deceptive.

5th Hole – Par 3 - White 202, Yellow 179, Red 119

You may want to use a ball with no sentimental value for this tee shot! A large green guarded by the water front and left will prove difficult to attack with the usual prevailing south-westerly wind. Fluke or not, a par here is priceless.

6th Hole – Par 4 - White 378, Yellow 377, Red 354

Bunkers left and right of the fairway come into play with the tee shot. Plays longer than you think up the hill from tee to green. Be sure to judge your approach well to avoid the large bunker.

7th Hole – Par 5 - White 500, Yellow 491, Red 423

An accurate tee shot gives a good opportunity to make par if you play it with 3 shots. Tempted in going for it in 2? Beware! The ditch runs 50 yards short of green so any missed cues will cost you.

8th Hole – Par 4 - White 336, Yellow 324, Red 229

Sharp dog leg left up the hill. Stray offline to the right and the approach is much harder and longer. Cut too much of the corner off on the left and water awaits over the gorse.

9th Hole – Par 3 - White 149, Yellow 149, Red 96

Stunning short hole from an elevated tee. A wide shallow green is guarded by water and sand. Take extra care with club selection as wind direction will make a dramatic difference to ball flight.
