The first is a long tight par 4, with the fairway shaping slightly from left to right. From the fairway, it plays uphill to the green which is protected by a deep pot bunker. The green slopes severely from front left to back right.
The second hole is a downhill par 4. The fairway is tight with trees lined on either side of the fairway. The green is a two tiered green which is slightly raised from the fairway. The green is also guarded with two large bunkers on the left and front right of the putting surface.
The third is a long uphill par 4. The fairway is fairly generous, but the approach shot is blind which raises the level of difficulty. The green is surrounded by two large grass bunkers with heavy rough.
The fourth hole is a relatively short par 3. It plays dramatically downhill, but is protected by two large bunkers at the front of the green and a pond directly over the back of the green.
The fifth is a demanding hole from the tee with the Mahon estuary on the left and large trees on the right. From the fairway the hole slightly dog-legs around to the right, where the green is slightly raised and protected by the overhanging trees by the front left of the green. The green also slopes from front to back.
The sixth is another short par 3. Although it is a short hole, there is a hazard right of the green which raises the difficulty of the hole. Also there are two large bunkers at the front of the green, taking any shots that are short.
The seventh is a long tight par 5. There is out of bounds running up the left of the fairway and a water hazard along the right. There are two options from the fairway. The fairway slides around to the right where players can play, or for the longer hitters, they can take on the green over the estuary.
The eighth is a medium length par 3. The difficulty is not from the tee but on the green. The green is a massive two tiered surface with many undulations to negotiate.
The ninth is a picturesque uphill par 3. From the tee the putting surface is a very narrow target, protected by a pot bunker on the right. The green again is two tiered sloping from back to front.
The tenth hole is a relatively short par 4. Although the hole is short, it is very narrow with the fairway sloping dramatically from left to right. The green is slightly raised with two large bunkers protecting it. The green again is two tiered and slopes from left to right.
The 11th hole is a tough par 5. The tee shot requires a long and accurate shot over the Mahon estuary. There are 2 large bunkers on the left side of the fairway and one on the right which makes finding the fairway a premium. Once the ideal tee shot is achieved the hole opens up and plays with relative ease. The green is a large target with two grass bunkers on either side of it.
The twelfth is a short but tight par. The fairway is tree lined on the right hand side and there is heavy rough along the right. The green is a fairly generous target sloping from back to front.
The 13th is a strong par 4. The fairway is quite tight and there is also a fairway bunker running up the right hand side. From the fairway the green sits slightly above the level of the fairway. The green is protected by a deep bunker located at the front left of the surface.
The 14th is a short par 4. The fairway dog-legs slightly from left to right, and is tree lined on the right. The approach is demanding because the green is guarded by three large bunkers located at the front and right side and also out of bounds is only a few feet from the left side of the green.
The 15th is a drivable par 4. Although this is a short hole, there are a number of difficulties to consider. There is out of bounds running up the left fairway and it continues all around the putting surface. There are also two large bunkers around the green which add to the difficulty.
Sixteen is a long testing par 4. There is out of bounds all up the left side of the fairway, continuing up the green. There is a water hazard short of the green and there are also three large green side bunkers. The green is extremely undulating which adds to the difficulty.
The 17th is a long par 5. From the tee there is out of bounds running up the left and also there are two fairway bunkers hugging the right side of the fairway. From the fairway the out of bounds continues up to and around the green. There is a small pot bunker protecting the front of the green. The green also slopes from back to front.
The 18th is an uphill testing par 3. The green is possibly the most difficult on the course. It slopes severely from back right to front left. There is also a medium sized bunker at the front left of the green.
