The back nine is very different to the front nine, with some very long 400m Par 4 or 200m Par 3 from the back tee. There are some water hazards which make this course a nice challenge: playing your handicap on the back nine successfully is a good effort.
The fairways look great, the course is in real good shape. This is a very hilly course so don’t play there for a relaxing walk. The course is fairly long at over 6000 metres and has its fair share of hills. The greens are some of the best in the area.

Top course, great value for money and a good mix between difficulty and forgiveness. Good balance between length of hole and hazards throughout. Recommend a cart or a fit heart if going 18
