Professional’s Tips

1st A strong opening hole. Hit the fairway to avoid a well positioned bunker to the left off the tee. Two good shots to reach the green that is situated in a hollow.

2nd A challenging 2 tier green with bunkers guarding right and left. Avoid falling short to secure your par.

3rd A dogleg left par 4. Tee shot must be to the right of the fairway to avoid the bunkers on the left and to give yourself a clear view for your approach shot to the green.

4th Aim on the marker with your tee shot. Be aware of the out of bounds to the right when playing your second shot. The green does run away from you so make sure your yardage is correct on your approach shot.

5th Downhill tee shot into a green guarded by a cluster of bunkers and severe slopes. Make sure you hit the green! I would take a par here.

6th An uphill tee shot finishing near the marker pole will leave you in a good position to find the green that is nestled in a hollow.

7th A magnificent par 4 that starts with a fairway that tumbles between the castle to the right and the church ruin to your left. Once the two deep fairway bunkers are avoided to the left you will reach a punchbowl green that runs away to the sea.

8th Another tee shot that takes in the scenery. Slight dogleg to the left. Marker post a good line to avoid two fairway bunkers on the left. Aim for the green off the tee if you are feeling strong enough!

9th A good two shot par 4. A drive slightly to the left of the marker pole will give you a shorter approach to a long green with run off areas short and right.

10th Downhill sloping fairway adjacent to a hazard running down the left. A good tee shot to the gap may get you home in two. If you’re short the ball will come back to you but watch out for the cheeky hidden bunkers at the back.

11th A shallow green awaits over a deep valley. False front to this green so don’t be short! Club selection is vital.

12th A short par 4 back across the valley. Stay left with your approach shot to avoid the steep run off to the right of the green.

13th The longest par 3 on the course that will require your Sunday best. Avoid landing short as you will find yourself with a tricky up and down for par.

14th Hit towards the marker pole with your tee shot to avoid the fairway bunkers down the left. This will leave you with an uphill second shot to an undulating green.

15th Make sure you land on the right tier otherwise you will be faced with a difficult two putt.

16th Our signature hole has breathtaking views that will distract you from your golf. At the marker pole with your tee shot will find a wide fairway which leaves you with an option of going for the green in two or laying up. Fast sloping green exposed to the prevailing wind might catch you out!

17th Double dogleg par 5. Aim slightly left of marker pole off the tee to find the plateau on the fairway. Risk or reward second shot up a narrow fairway to a green surrounded by gorse. If you miss the fairway you should accept it as a three shot par 5.

18th Very difficult narrow finishing hole. A slight fade to the right side of the fairway will leave you with a great chance of holding the fairway. Finish in style with a mid to short iron to a large undulating green in sight of the clubhouse balcony.
