THE COURSE, PAR 71

The course designed by the Augusta Master winner, Jose María Olazabal, is a course that challenges the golfer, combining narrow fairways with falls and changes in elevation that will delight the most technical player.

PAR 3

 

A great hole that extends along a narrow ridge. The fairway surface gradually widens until it reaches the green.

The hole should be played along the left, as the right is guarded by four bunkers next to the green and a ravine marked with red stakes as a lateral hazard to the right.

Being the first hole, the psychological effect of its length makes this excellent hole even more difficult.

 

 

PAR 5

Starting with a tee shot flanked by slopes that guide the ball towards the middle of the downhill fairway. Longer hitters should favour the left to take advantage of the dog-leg and take the right hand bunker out of play. The second shot has to be either played laying-up on a narrow stretch of fairway, or risk playing towards the green, close to the ravine to avoid any of the ten bunkers located on the left.

When shooting for the green, we must be careful with an out of bounds located on the left and, additionally, with a ravine on the right.

 

PAR 3

A magnificent par three helped by a beautiful landscape. The shot to the green offers three options with the right side being the most dangerous. The right, has a landing zone of a radius of four meters surrounded by obstacles. The center the most generous surface but requiring one to fly a bunker located at the front of the green. The entry from the left is the least risky allowing one to bounce the ball on the fringe area without risk of falling into the front bunker.

 

 

 

PAR 4

A blind tee shot, the green is not visible from the tee and as the fall in elevation of the fairway hides the landing zone, one needs to favour the left to ensure the right “out of bounds” does not come into play.

When attacking the green we need to be cautious of the front greenside bunkers and the obstacles each side and rear of the green. Correct club selection is paramount.

 

 

PAR 4

Despite being the shortest par four, it is very interesting. The green is within reach of a long drive, the player has to risk playing long and straight to reach the elevated green. The platform is surrounded by ravines, requiring the ball to be pulled up rapidly to avoid them. The entire fairway width at the entrance of the green is covered by four bunkers, one of them enormous with an island in the middle.  Any tee shot or second (approach shot) to the green that falls short will end up in aforementioned bunkers.

 

 

PAR 3

A medium length par three designed with an extremely elevated green requiring the use of an extra club or two. Additionally the out of bounds on the left is far more dangerous than it appears. The threat of two bunkers, one left greenside and the other in front of the green, can further complicate your result.

 

PAR 4

A postcard hole adorned by a lake within reach of the tee shot. Here you have to be careful, calculate your distance carefully to land short of the water but keep straight to ensure the left-hand out of bounds does not complicate your score. Two options for the second shot. Lay up short to avoid the water hazard or attack the green taking on the risks for reward.

 

 

 

PAR 4

This hole allows us to go for the shortcut if we have the length and precision. It’s a choice that requires real knowledge of our distance and direction control given the distance required to fly the ravine varies significantly depending on the angle the  dog-leg is “taken-on”.

The approach to the green is guarded on the right with a steep fall and rough not to mention two large right greenside bunkers.

 

PAR 5

A hole finishing with a view of extraordinary beauty. The tee shot needs to be played by cutting the dog-leg to the right.

A good long tee shot provides the real possibility of reaching the green in two. It’s a risky play given that a mistake to the left takes us into the lateral hazard. The other alternative could be to play the second shot using the road that crosses the fairway as a reference. With the approach shot we must avoid the obstacles located on the left side of the green.

 

 

 

PAR 4

A spectacular hole with captivating views. We need to fly the gorge 110 meters from the yellow tee markers. The left of the fairway is a lateral hazard the entire length of the hole. The most prudent thing is to avoid the left and to favour the right. The approach shot to the green requires caution to avoid the multiple obstacles that exist.

 

 

PAR 3

The green platform overhangs the lake like a balcony. It is a short par three compensated by the necessity of precision to hit a solid shot, bring the ball to a stop on the green’s platform thus avoiding the multiple obstacles that surround the green.

 

PAR 4

A hole with the final leg of singular beauty characterized by the difficulty of flying a gorge 130 meters from the yellow tee. You play towards a bunker located at the end of the fairway. The approach flight path is flanked by large trees and an out of bounds to be avoided on the left which cannot be seen from the tee. The approach shot. Dangers lurk on the left and to the rear of the green.

 

 

 

PAR 4

A magnificent hole, which has several obstacles that condition the driver’s strategy. A large oak located on the left side of the fairway a stand of oaks on the right narrow considerably the playing corridor. With the green located several meters higher, we must take special care to attack the entrance with the correct club, as the distance to the target can change drastically depending on the flag position.

 

 

 

 

PAR 5

A pair of five of extraordinary beauty that gives a panoramic view with several bunker at driver length. To reach the green in two, you have to fly the first bunker located on the left of the fairway. Those who do not have this reach can play the center of the fairway to enter the green in three. The shots to the green have to be played on the right side to avoid the obstacles located on the other. It is important not to forget that there is an out of bounds to the rear of the green.

 

 

 

 

PAR 3

It is the highest handicap shot hole in the “second nine”. This hole has to be played overcoming the two bunkers located at the green entrance but without forgetting the ravine to the right of the hole.

Correct club selection requires bearing in mind the difference in height between tee and green.

 

PAR 4

A beautiful hole with a gradually rising fairway that also slopes right to left. It must be played avoiding an out of bounds located on the left of the fairway. When approaching the green, we must be especially mindful to not “pull” the ball to left out of bounds whilst not forgetting the rest of the obstacles.

 

 

PAR 4

A downward sloping hole with a dog-leg to the left finishing in a diagonal bunker closing of the fairway and approach to the green. As the green is hidden, the tee shot strategy for the long hitter is to play on the left side short-cutting the dog-leg. With the approach shot to the green, we must avoid two bunkers and a ravine located on the right side.

 

 

 

PAR 5

An extraordinary par five that is guarded by a hilly bank on the left and a ravine on the right. The tee shot poses the dilemma of playing long or laying up short to diminish danger. The risk must be proportional to the benefit obtained. The narrow fairway further narrows right where the bunker on the left is situated while just to the right the gully lurks. Both obstacles make up the narrow corridor where the driver has to place the ball to be within reach of green for two. With the approach shot, the greatest danger is to the right with hazard areas and impenetrable rough.
