The first par 3 on the course is a long 222 yards and the high tee position provides a wonderful view of the hole. There is room on the left from the tee but anything to the right could be a disaster waiting to happen! An elevated green provides a wonderful back drop to this course favourite.

Another superb par 3 and one which is especially memorable as it requires a shot to the green which is situated high above the tee.  If the pin is at the back of the green then you may need an extra club!

Another spectacular par 3 hole which requires an accurate tee shot to ensure that you bypass the tree on the left to reach the green safely. The green is behind the club house so moving onto the 13th requires you to walk back around the club house and enter the course again to the right side of the steps.

Take the fairway through the avenue of trees on the right and enjoy a par 4 hole straight across to the far side of the course. That's the easy bit, as the green is situated on a severe slope and putting down the hill if your not careful - could spoil your round of golf!

The easiest par 3 on the course...don't be fooled! A high bank in front of the green hides the closest side of the green and makes it difficult to judge the exact distance to the hole. Hit the bank and the ball could shoot off anywhere!

The final par 3 on the course is one of the most exciting holes on the course. A shot from the tee has to reach an alleviated green - high up on the valley side. Will the flag be positioned on the bottom or top of the split green? If you get it wrong you could be 10 metres off the hole with an uphill or downhill putt...

This straight par 4 is a great way to end this wonderful course. As you come down the final fairway the club house is situated behind the green which is slightly elevated. Keep away from the rough on the right to ensure a safe and rewarding final hole. See you on the 19th hole.
