Hole 1Par 4 – 343 Yards

Pro’s Tip – A very tough opening hole. Keep it in play of the tee, and add half a club to your second shot.

Hole 2Par 4 – 359 Yards

Pro’s Tip – Theres more room left off the tee here than you think. 5-10 yards left of the marker post will leave the average golfer in the best position to hit the green.

Hole 3Par 5 – 495 Yards

Pro’s Tip – The second shot is the most important on this hole. Once in position of the tee your second shot will bounce and roll an extra 20-30 yards down the hill towards the green. Don’t be too greedy or you may run into the bunkers short of the green.

Hole 4Par 3 – 194 Yards

Pro’s Tip – A tricky par 3 where all the danger is short. Club up to take all the danger out of play.

Hole 5Par 4 – 484 Yards

Pro’s Tip – A brutal par 4 for any standard of golfer. Lay up short of the ditch on your second shot for safety and to leave yourself a full shot in.

Hole 6Par 5 – 514 Yards

Pro’s Tip – A very scoreable par 5. Right is better than left of the tee. Be sure to keep your approach to the green short of the hole to leave yourself an uphill putt.

Hole 7Par 5 – 537 Yards

Pro’s Tip – The green slopes from front to back, balls carrying any sort of speed going into the green will end up out the back with a tricky chip back up the green. Play 5-10 yards short of the pin to allow for the bounce and roll.

Hole 8Par 3 – 145 Yards

Pro’s Tip – Don’t let the yardage fool you. A very tricky par 3 where wind direction will effect your ball more than you think. Usually plays half a club longer.

Hole 9Par 4 – 322 Yards

Pro’s Tip – A risk or reward for most golfers off the tee. There is room to the right of the lake if you’re not feeling brave enough to take on the long carry!

Hole 1Par 4 – 371 Yards

Pro’s Tip -The 1st is a very simple opening hole with the main danger being 2 deep bunkers short right of the green.

Hole 2Par 3 – 182 Yards

Pro’s Tip – Staying short of the pin is vital on this 2 tiered par 3 green.

Hole 3Par 4 – 347 Yards

Pro’s Tip – A narrow ditch just short of the green makes for a risk or reward for shorter hitters. If in doubt, lay up!

Hole 4Par 3 – 224 Yards

Pro’s Tip – A tough long par 3 where missing left of the tee is better than right. Most golfers will need to rely on a good chip and putt to make par.

Hole 5Par 4 – 375 Yards

Pro’s Tip – Club selection on your second shot is vital with the back half of the green sloping towards the water. Again, short is better than long on your approach.

Hole 6Par 3 – 164 Yards

Pro’s Tip – This Par 3 usually plays half a club longer than the yardage. Be sure to take enough club or the bunker short of the green is waiting!

Hole 7Par 4 – 358 Yards

Pro’s Tip – A tricky tee shot on this hole, be sure to aim slightly left of the marker post to allow for the sloping fairway left to right.
Aniel Chauhan - Professional


Hole 8Par 4 – 376 Yards

Pro’s Tip – Take a club of the tee that will leave you short of the fairway bunker. The most common mistake on this hole is trying to bite off more than you can chew! A tough hole where par/nett par is more than acceptable.

Hole 9Par 4 – 395 Yards

Pro’s Tip – Be sure to leave the ball short of the hole on this green. It’s deceptively quick when putting from back to front.
