Hole Length (Yards) Par Index Description
1 390 4 13 Drive downhill, looks narrow, but there is loads of room on the right once you clear the trees. So taking a driver is fine.
2 411 4 1 Good tough long par 4, even with a good drive green is still a good distance away and well protected to the right with water.
3 512 5 17 Uphill drive on this shortish par 5, reachable in two from green sticks as green is down in a valley.
4 168 3 15 Uphill par 3 and as you are at highest point of course, wind is real factor here.
5 384 4 5 Tee shot down into a valley with trees on either side. Approach is back up hill to green.
6 223 3 3 This is a demon of a par 3, downhill with OOB on left and water and trees on the right.. not for the faint hearted, but certainly beautiful.
7 401 4 9 Slight fade off the tee is ideal on this one, lenght of hole is the only real issue.
8 378 4 11 Coming back parallel to the 7th a good drive will leave a nice approach down hill to the green protected on both sides by water.
9 510 5 10 Nice par 5, depending on tee box, stream running across fairway is just about reachable of front tees no worries on the back ones. 2nd shot does not need to be huge just beware of stream running up right side.

10 385 4 16 Uphill tee shot on this slight left to right hole, loads of room out right to 11th fairway so fine for folks with a tendency to slice !
11 331 4 8 Keep the tee shot down right side or you'll be wet as fairway slopes towards pond. 2nd is a glorious shot over pond to green.
12 166 3 18 Relatively standard par 3, just don't be too long into the club house.
13 340 4 12 With restricted netting from tee, if you can't hit a fade then you are forced to hit an iron or risk maiming someone on the 12th tee.
14 441 4 2 Dogleg left on this hole, corner is not clearable from back tees but can be cut on front tees. Don't slice as OOB all along right side.
15 166 3 14 Longish par 3 fairly straight foward ward.
16 531 5 6 Nice par 5 with narrowish tee shot, OOB on right and trees on the left, and bunkers. Ensure 2nd is kept to the right or you'll get caught by pond and sneaks a good bit down the left side of the hole. Approach is then over a stream to well protected g
17 429 4 4 This is a monster par 4 from back tees especially if prevailing wind is blowing in your face. 2nd shot in most cases will be blind over a hill down the green below which has water protecting it to the right.
18 537 5 7 Fantastic finishing hole, long drives could reach water on both left and right, so as a par 5 take a lower wood and keep to the left. Giving an approach which should land before water running across in front of green.
