A tight challenging tree & rhododendron lined course with an abundance of wildlife.
A tight tree lined course, not much sand only 13 bunkers, but there's a lot of natural shape and quite a few very large and well positioned mounds along the fairways. There is water around the course but it need never really come into play.

The first hole is a tough par 4, the fairway narrows about 230yds out with mounds pinching in left and right, you really need to carry the right-hand mound to get a good shot at this green.

Hole 3 is the first par 3, 182yds to a raised green with bunkers left and right. There is water in front of the tee and a large and oddly shaped conifer tree directly in the line to the green.

The 4th is a short par 4 at 304yds, but such a severe left dogleg it takes a good shot to get within a wedge. The ladies tee is well forward and positioned to take out the dogleg, so from the red tee it is a 194yd par 3. The green falls away steeply at the back and is protected by bunkers left and right.

Hole 5 is the first and the shortest of the four par 5's at 478yds, with the green tucked away to the right. There is a pond short right and a greeen-side bunker left.

Six is quite short and straight, reachable in the right conditions or from the forward tee, but watch out the fairway gets very narrow towards the green.

The 8th is another sub 500yd par 5, the fairway narrows about 250yds out with a mound left and trees coming in from the right, it then doglegs left about 125yds from the green, so position is everything, both off the tee and the second shot.

Hole 9 is an easy looking par 4, at 246yds it's shorter than some par 3's I've played, but the pin position can add to the difficulty especially back left behind the greeen-side bunker.

The 13th is another straight forward par 4, 330yds, no bunkers, a definite birdie opportunity.

Holes 14 and 15 are both fairly short par 4's but their shape makes them challenging.

The 18th is a good finishing hole, 538yd par 5, a rare generous fairway, but you need to be left for a good second shot, so the fairway is not really as wide as it seems.

A great lesson in course management. Next time, I swear, I'll think my way round.
