Hole number 1

Description

From the tee of this hole while descending, do not be distracted by the magnificent landscape and make sure to leave your tee shot in the fairly wide fairway and thus avoid the stream to the left and the sand pits on the right. It is better to be short rather than long for the approach shot on the green as it is slightly raised and well guarded by two sand traps.

 

Numbers

Hole number 2

Description

The very wide fairway of this short, uphill par-four allows for free launching off the tee. For the upward approach shot, one or two more sticks should be provided and favor the right side of this wide but shallow green and thus avoid the deep sand pits on the left

Hole number 3

Description

The narrowness of this raised green and the continual influence of the wind calls for precision on this par three. For this downhill hole, you often need a stick less and play it safe by favoring the green front.

 

Numbers

Hole number 4

Description

Two options: Long hitters can cross the pond aiming for the left corner of the pond and try to reach the green in two strokes on that short par five. The wiser option is a more precise than long tee shot to the left of the pond and a second shot in front of the green for a precise approach to this well-guarded green.

 

Numbers

Hole number 5

Description

Favor the left side of the fairway on the tee shot for a better angle of attack on the approach shot which will need to be precise on that elevated green flanked by sand pits to its left. Aiming for the center of the green is a good choice on this hole.

 

Numbers

Hole number 6

Description

Several challenges on this long angled hole: A tee shot long enough to go past the corner of the elbow to make sure you see the green on the second shot. A long, precise approach shot on this two-level green, guarded by sand traps on both sides.

 

Numbers

Hole number 7

Description

Allow one more stick on this par three uphill and often played with a headwind. The wide but shallow green requires good control over the distance of the tee shot.

 

Numbers

Hole number 8

Description

A long tee shot is a risky option as the fairway narrows but can pay off as this green is easily hit in two. A wise option is a tee shot before the pond to the left, a second precise shot down the center of the fairway and an easier approach on that well-guarded green.

 

Numbers

 

Hover over hole number 8

Hole number 9

Description

Favor the left center of the fairway on the tee shot to avoid deep sand traps on the right side. Use one or two more sticks for the approach to the green of this ascending hole. Target the left side of the green for a putt up on one of the more difficult greens to negotiate.

 

Numbers

Hole number 10

Description

The spectacular view should not distract you on this downhill par three where the wind is an issue. A good strategy is to aim for the center of the green with often one less stick.

 

Numbers

Hole number 11

Description

Long hitters will be able to pass to the left of the pine in the middle of the fairway and thus have a short approach favoring the left side of this two-tier green. A tee shot to the right of the pine is a less risky option.

 

Numbers

Hole number 12

Description

This short par five is perfect for putting down a low score. The fairway is wide and the stream running through it is seldom in play. Tip: Rolls run away from the mountain on this green.

Hole number 13

Description

This angled hole provides a wide fairway for tee shots that extend past the sand pit in the middle of the hole. This elevated two-level green with a sand trap to the right calls for precision on the approach shot.

 

Numbers

Hole number 14

Description

Flanked by an off-limit on the right and a pond on the left, this magnificent long hole demands power and precision. Favor the left side of the fairway on your tee shot and the right side of the fairway on your second stroke. The approach to the very narrow green, guarded by pits on each side, also requires a lot of precision.

 

Numbers

 

Hover over hole number 14

Hole number 15

Description

The tee shot from this short distance angled hole must cross a pond. Long hitters will be tempted by the risky but rewarding option of crossing a greater distance over the pond to approach the green. With a more conservative tee shot, the approach stroke will still be short and conducive to attacking the flag.

 

Numbers

Hole number 16

Description

The course’s signature hole is a short par three requiring a precise stroke to reach the peninsula-shaped green. Wind is a big factor on this hole.

 

Numbers

Hole number 17

Description

Favor the right side of the path to avoid the long sand trap along the pond to the left of this angled hole. The right side of the green is recommended on the approach.

Hole number 18

Description

The scenery of the final hole should not make you lose your concentration in order to meet the great challenge of one of the most beautiful holes in golf. All uphill and from a good distance, the hole calls for a power tee shot on the right side of the fairway to avoid the deep sand pits to the left. The second shot also requires power with one or two more sticks to hit the three-level green. Avoid going long on the approach to make sure you have a putt as you climb onto one of the more difficult greens to negotiate.
