A parkland course, there are seven par three's, so it's quite short but interesting.
The course starts with a 496 yard par 4. It's quite wide from the tee with plenty of room to the right, the only danger being a well placed bunker right of fairway. About 200 yards from the green the ground dips and then rises to a much higher level, so if you drive long enough to get on in two, you can't see the green for your approach.

The third is a long par 3 at 213 yards. There are trees tight on both sides of the tee, an unusually narrow tunnel to get through.

Hole 4 is a 370 yard par 4. A slight left to right dogleg, you are teeing blind across a really dense stand of trees that finish about 150 yards out. You need to keep right from the tee as there are trees and OB all along the left.

The fifth is a 182 yard par 3. There is a small stand of trees between you and the long narrow green. There are a couple of inviting bunkers to the front of the green and a very deep bunker on the left.

The seventh is a straight 340 yard par 4. Favour the right as there are dense trees left. There's a group of bunkers centre fairway about 75 yards from the green, which is long and narrow and sloping back to front.

Eight is another interesting par 3, 211 yards. The green is atop a huge rise which is crowned by trees, so you are teeing blind and there is OB just behind the green.

At 297 yards for a par 4, the ninth is an easy looking hole on paper. But you are teeing across a line of trees to falling ground. There are trees left of the fairway and two bunkers right. The green is proctected front sides by bunkers and a ridge to the back.

Eleven is memorable, a 395 yard par 4. You are shoting downhill from an extremly elevated tee. (see above)

Thirteen is a little similar to 11 but a bit tougher. A 436 yard par 4 downhill from an elevated tee to a small round green.

The fourteeth is the shortest par 3 at 133 yards. The green is well protected with four bunkers around the front and a ridge behind.

The fifteenth is a strange hole, a 288 yard par 4. The tee shot is through a gap in a line of trees to fairway which angles away left, you can't see the green but if you can hit a big draw you can reach it. There is a dich cutting across the fairway about 35 yards from the green which is two tier sloping back to front.

Seventeen is a 148 yard par 3. Downhill to a green protected around the front by 3 bunkers and to the back by a ridge falling away to a water ditch.

The course finishes well with a 393 yard uphill par 4. There is a ditch across the fairway about 160 yards from the green which slopes heavily back to front and has a deep bunker either side.
