The ideal tee-off is the right centre with the first par 5 with a dogleg to the left. Centre shot should give you a clean long look to the green.There is a bunker and few trees at the bend. You will find more bunkers surrounding this long, narrow green.

There is a slight slope in front of the green, so depending on the wind factors, golfers are faced with low iron or a six iron. Near the end of the green is there a beautifully tree-framed hole that has bunkers all around.

Hole 6 has an uphill, blind tee shot with a wide fairway which gives room off your tee shot. The ideal landing area off the tee would be slightly off the right side, giving a golfer a better look at the green. Your second shot does require some accuracy because: 1) if you are long, the green slopes from back to front, and you can putt it off the green 2) if you are short, you will have an uphill shot to a blind green.

This hole is pretty straight with a par three wanting to get on the green; There are bunkers guarding the left and right sides. There is a significant drop-off behind the green, so you don’t want to bring that into play.

For hole 8, three bunkers are waiting to snare any shot, including one in the middle of the fairway. With two traps in front of the green, the ideal second shot is to put on the green. There is a blinded shot to the green, so the perfect shot is dead-centered with a good driver just over the middle fairway bunker.

A wide-open fairway greets you at the beginning of Hole 9. Fairway bunkers can cause issues on your second shot, and more bunkers and mounds surround the green as you try to close out your round with a birdie/par.
