Hole n°1

  • PAR 5
  • HCP 12
  • Black 482
  • White 469
  • Yellow 445
  • Blue 429
  • Red 409

Pro Advice

The course starts off with a magnificent dogleg par 5.  I recommend you play your drive to the right side of the fairway to avoid a troublesome second shot. Attack the green from about the 100-metre mark and aim for the middle! This might help you avoid the bunker and the many slopes.

Hole n°2

  • PAR 3
  • HCP 8
  • Black 208
  • White 198
  • Yellow 175
  • Blue 151
  • Red 134

Pro Advice

This long, well-protected par 3 will give you a hard time. Feel free to play a little long to avoid the bunkers in front of the green.

Hole n°3

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 18
  • Black 350
  • White 336
  • Yellow 321
  • Blue 294
  • Red 277

Pro Advice

On paper, this is the easiest hole on the course. The fairway is quite wide and you’ll have to get past the mound to attack the green more comfortably. The approach is downhill and you’ll often have the wind behind you, so pick the right club.

Hole n°4

  • PAR 5
  • HCP 5
  • Black 455
  • White 455
  • Yellow 428
  • Blue 398
  • Red 369

Pro Advice

A par 5 with a slight dogleg to the right. Aim between the two fairway bunkers to hit your best drive. And keep an eye on the water hazard on the right. There are different strategies you can adopt for your second shot, depending on your ball length. I recommend you leave an approach of 100 metres and aim for the edge of the green for an uphill putt.

Hole n°5

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 6
  • Black 420
  • White 409
  • Yellow 371
  • Blue 354
  • Red 310

Pro Advice

If you manage to hit a good drive down the fairway avoiding the bunkers, you’re off to a great start. Try to stay to the right of the green on the approach to give yourself an easier putt.

Hole n°6

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 14
  • Black 319
  • White 319
  • Yellow 296

Pro Advice

A short downhill par 4. Line up your shot to the right of the fairway before landing your ball on the sparsely defended green.

Hole n°7

  • PAR 3
  • HCP 3
  • Black 146
  • White 146
  • Yellow 134
  • Blue 109

A par 3 with a very sloping raised green. Play to the right side of the green and your ball will come back to the middle.

Hole n°8

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 4
  • Black 349
  • White 349
  • Yellow 329
  • Blue 297
  • Red 272

Pro Advice

A demanding par 4. Water on the left, trees on the right… Aim for the bunker on the green to stay on the fairway.  Move up a club for your second shot to reach the green.

Hole n°9

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 2
  • Black 413
  • White 406
  • Yellow 370
  • Blue 315
  • Red 278

Pro Advice

This long par 4 is a real challenge.  Aim slightly to the right of the fairway to give yourself a shorter second shot. It’s a large green, so don’t be afraid to hit your second shot a bit long.

Hole n°10

  • PAR 3
  • HCP 3
  • Black 139
  • White 139
  • Yellow 128
  • Blue 113
  • Red 104

Pro Advice

You’re usually playing into the wind on this uphill par 3. Keep to the right side of the green to ensure you’re on par and maybe even able to snag a birdie.

Hole n°11

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 1
  • Black 337
  • White 422
  • Yellow 405
  • Blue 378
  • Red 330

Pro Advice

This is the most challenging hole on the course. Try not to play your tee shot too far to the left. For less powerful hitters, playing this hole in par 5 is your best option.

Hole n°12

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 5
  • Black 367
  • White 367
  • Yellow 351
  • Blue 324
  • Red 280

Pro Advice

A straight par 4. Try to hit your tee shot down the right side of the fairway. Reaching the green in regulation is extremely satisfying! Move up a club to reach the raised green.

Hole n°13

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 9
  • Black 416
  • White 382
  • Yellow 334
  • Blue 312
  • Red 261

Pro Advice

Don’t let the sound of the waves distract you from your tee shot. Aim slightly left of the fairway bunker on your first shot.  The green is very sloping. Aim to the centre left of the green and don’t hit it short if you want to make par or better!

Hole n°14

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 3
  • Black 416
  • White 377
  • Yellow 322
  • Blue 303
  • Red 279

Pro Advice

A nice par 4. Play it safe by driving down the right of the fairway. The green is quite flat. Stay on the left side of the green to avoid the bunker!

Hole n°15

  • PAR 5
  • HCP 17
  • Black 487
  • White 465
  • Yellow 433
  • Blue 405
  • Red 374

Pro Advice

A dogleg par 5. The hardest part of this hole is the blind second shot. Try to land the ball 100 metres from the green to make the approach shot easier.

Hole n°16

  • PAR 3
  • HCP 11
  • Black 186
  • White 180
  • Yellow 153
  • Blue 138
  • Red 123

Pro Advice

A magnificent downhill par 3. Choose your club wisely to land your ball on the green.

Hole n°17

  • PAR 5
  • HCP 13
  • Black 456
  • White 456
  • Yellow 441
  • Blue 391
  • Red 350

Pro Advice

A par 5 with a left dogleg. There are no major hazards to interfere with your first stroke. For your second stroke, I recommend you land the ball about 100 metres from the green. Move up a club on your approach. If you hit the ball too short, it risks rolling down into the bunkers!

Hole n°18

  • PAR 4
  • HCP 7
  • Black 384
  • White 384
  • Yellow 373
  • Blue 340
  • Red 334

Pro Advice

This is the last challenge of the round.  Take the time to enjoy the breathtaking 360° panoramic view from the tee box. There are no obvious difficulties with the tee shot. However,  the green is small, so your approach shot needs to be accurate!
