Hole 1 Par 4 HCP 18
  • 345 Yards
  • 323 Yards
  • 301 Yards
This short par 4 is an excellent starting point for the golf course. Large trees line the right side of the fairway, and long hitters can gamble by cutting the corner. The hole bends from left to right. The straight hitter will be rewarded with an easy approach onto this flat but small green.
Hole 2 Par 5 HCP 14
  • 507 Yards
  • 493 Yards
  • 457 Yards
A drive over the lagoon starts this hole as it follows the natural landscape up a small hill. The green is tucked behind a ridge that runs the entire length of its right side. The safe route on the second shot is down the centre of the fairway between the numerous traps that guard the landing area. Long hitters may opt to carry the coconut grove that hides the green.
Hole 3 Par 3 HCP 16
  • 185 Yards
  • 162 Yards
  • 142 Yards
With the green perched on top of a small ridge, the surrounding mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to this medium length par 3. Many golfers choose to play one club short to avoid the bunkers on the left and back of the green.
Hole 4 Par 4 HCP 8
  • 414 Yards
  • 376 Yards
  • 333 Yards
With water running along the entire left side of the hole, the tee shot is very demanding. The bunker on the right defines the optimum placement, while the two-tiered green makes for an interesting target.
Hole 5 Par 5 HCP 2
  • 569 Yards
  • 537 Yards
  • 484 Yards
This long par 5 is the most difficult on the course. With water close to the left side of the landing area, it is better to keep to the right on the tee shot. Having successfully negotiated that, you must then master an uphill shot into a narrow landing area with bunkers on the right and a coconut grove on the left. The short third shot is also uphill towards the large green.
Hole 6 Par 4 HCP 6
  • 418 Yards
  • 384 Yards
  • 344 Yards
This straightaway par 4 looks easier than it is. A large bunker absorbs the left side of the fairway. Longer hitters can try to play over the bunker; however, a tee shot short of the bunker leaves an open second to this well protected green.
Hole 7 Par 3 HCP 10
  • 220 Yards
  • 189 Yards
  • 160 Yards
Definitely the longest par 3 on the course. Though it plays slightly down hill, this hole requires a masterful long iron shot to land on the green, as it is well protected by bunkers on the left and water on the right.
Hole 8 Par 4 HCP 4
  • 408 Yards
  • 379 Yards
  • 331 Yards
Some say this is the hardest hole on the golf course. With water on the left and three gaping bunkers to the right, a straight tee shot is the key to this long dog-leg right par 4. Once safely on the fairway, a delicate approach is needed to play onto the steep, sloping green.
Hole 9 Par 4 HCP 14
  • 428 Yards
  • 387 Yards
  • 342 Yards
At 373 yards, the ninth hole is a relatively short par 4. A tee shot is needed down the centre of the fairway as any to the right side make for a longer second shot However the approach shot must be accurate as it has to be played to a small island green that slopes off to the water. This hole is recognized as one of the course's signature holes and is featured in many promotional photographs.
