A signature hole on this fantastic golf course includes the par 5 5th hole, widely considered to be the most difficult on the course. Golfers are thrown into the challenge with a tricky tee shot across the green with two large water hazards and tall trees lining it. The challenge does not end there; the fairway slopes uphill for your second shot, and here the undulating green is guarded by a spacious bunker on the right side.
