An interesting, challenging 18 hole course with plenty of shape.
A great course with many memorable holes, including the 1st a par 5, a left to right is the ideal tee shot on this downhill right dogleg, leaving you on a severe downslope with a huge gorge between you and the slightly elevated green.

The 2nd is a testing par 4, you need to hit the ball right to left off the tee, leaving a long shot onto a green that is on a high ridge, well above your head.

Hole 4 has you teeing into space, the fairway slopes away so steeply there is a look-out tower to spot your ball from. The green is again raised on an enormous ridge.

The par 4 seventh needs a well placed tee shot to have a look at the pin, even then to get on and stay on this green is tricky.

Nine is another thinking hole, not long but easy to get in trouble.

There is a snack bar between holes 9 and 10. It's not always open so check before you go out.

The tee shot on hole 10 has you firing blind, up and over a hill, keep left as the fairway slopes away to the right on the other side. The two tier green is again well elevated.

Hole 13 favours the long hitter, taking the fairway bunkers out of play and maybe even reaching the green.

The 15th is another blind tee demanding a straight shot.

Seventeen a par 3, from one hill to another, the right length shot is the only one that will do here, short or long is not good.

Another blind tee shot, the 18th is reachable with a long high shot or a slight draw, but don't pull it or you're out.

A great course, one of my favourites, set in the grounds of a rather grand hotel where you can stop for lunch or drinks in the pheonix bar and grill.
