This is an attractive and demandingly strong parkland layout, full of good looking tree-lined par 4s, although in terms of design it is repetitive in places, with similarly shaped holes, greenside bunkering, flattish putting surfaces and artificial-looking water hazards. The course does cry out for some fairway bunkering on wider fairways which would at least place a premium on accurate tee shots in these times of 300-metre drives. There are some interesting and tricky dogleg par 4s though, notably on the tenth, one of the better holes. Another is the 17th. The course is home to several magnificent pines of gigantic proportions, and the unique thatched rain shelters are superb constructions.
