On this course you can enjoy the best of both worlds; an exquisite peaceful woodland environment on a well-respected golf course. Golfers are encouraged to bring a surplus of balls as with some holes they bear a slight slope lined with thick forestry; there is always a great chance of misplacing your ball. This course requires a complex game as whilst it demands a long drive initially from the tee, it also forces players to aim with extreme caution at the same time in order to avoid the forest, which has been known to swallow many birdies.
A particularly notable hole in this course is the 1st hole due to its lengthy approach, sophisticated green design, and tee shot which requires your upmost attention. This hole takes no prisoners, and throws the players into the deep end right from the start. Bunkers line the right side of the hole, and thick greenery lines the left. Therefore your initial tee shot could make or break your round of golf.
