A 475-meter par-5 hole sets the tone of the course taking the player down a gentle slope to the first of the several undulating greens. The par-3 fifth hole is a challenging dogleg to the left with a lake to catch any short shots. The back nine takes the player close to the beach and the panoramic sea views. The interesting par-4 fourteenth of 333 meters which is another dogleg to the left, presents water to the right on the drive and then again inviting water to your left to carry on the approach shot to the green. The eighteenth par-5 of 475 meters has a generously wide fairway but the green is almost surrounded by guarding bunkers.
