Consideration must be given to the tee shot as the hole is bordered to the right by a ravine, which runs along entire fairway and again on the approach to the green. Therefore, the tee shot must avoid the bunker on the left and the no go area on the right. This will leave a wedge to reach the green, which slopes from back to front
The first challenge on this fantastic course . Don’t come up short of the green!!
Big Hitters should hit a wood or long iron keeping the ball on the right to avoid going to long into the ravine. A tee shot to the left is a no no . The second shot must be long and accurate to an elevated green, complicated with a two-tiered and defended by 2 bunkers. Keep the ball on the left as the tilt is from left to right. Hope your a good putter….
A buggy ride from green 2 to tee 3 will take you under the highway to the first of the par 3’s a formidable hole of 197 meters from yellows. You must carry the ball a distance of approximately 167 meters over the ravine to find the first cut, so take into account the “flight factor”. This hole has a very large green with undulations that could complicate things depending of the position of the flag. Best of Luck!
After the last three holes, this par 5 looks very easy, but again it is essential to achieve a long straight tee shot to carry the ball 200 meters over (yes you guessed it) a ravine. The second shot, another long, straight iron will leave a wedge, avoiding the two front bunkers and the one at the back of the green also. With a good approach there is an opportunity to steal a birdie here.
Par 4, of 335 meters. To seize the opportunity to birdie the tee shot must avoid the right and left bunkers on the fairway that will swallow any off centre drives. A straight drive will be rewarded with a simple iron but beware of the green, with two tiers and well protected by two large front bunkers the right club choice is a must.
This par 4 really gives you the opportunity to open your shoulders. After a good drive you will be left with a long iron into the green again dont come up short or you will be punished by the two bunkers at the front of the green, while too long a shot will see you into the back bunker. The green, again has two tiers sloping from front to back so be sure to stay below the hole. Birdie opportunity.
Par 5, This hole requires a good drive drive across the lake to find the best position to lay up for your third, a short pitch should find you with an opportunity to score an easy birdie.
Par 3, A fairly short hole the main obstacle is the lake guarding the entrance of the green. Anything slightly short is guaranteed to end up in the water. An extra club is a wise choice.
Short Par 4, The views from this tee are simply awesome. Watch out for the large lake that’s initially hidden from you when hitting your tee shot.
A short par 4 with a large green. The only real problem here would be going too long on the approach, as the green slopes away at the back…..
Long Par 4, Ascent hole that rises to the highest point of the course. Plenty of room off the tee. So you can give it a smack!.
Par 5, This is a scoring hole so take advantage, drive from a slightly elevated tee to a wide landing area framed by fall of the surrounding hills. From here the hole dog-leg right, leaving a short uphill approach to the green.
A straight par 5 where any shots to the left of the fairway should open the approach to the green.
A very tricky short par 3, where the green is surrounded by obstacles such as the ravine on the left and the lake protecting the front and right and back of the green.
So be sure not to go right left long or short. Simple!!
The first of two tough holes, with a narrow fairway that requires a precision strike otherwise the two bunkers right and left come into play about 20 meters apart from each other. If you miss the fairway on the left you will fall into the same ravine where you lost your balls on the front nine. The hole continues with a slight dog-leg right and if you miss the bunkers you will be rewarded with a easy shot on the rise with medium iron, the green is defended by 2 large bunkers on the left and right, tough green with undulations and slope so stay below the hole (if there is such a spot).
This hole, handicap 1, 470 meters from the yellows deserves the most respect. You will need a long drive towards the retaining wall to the right, fire the ball 200 meters over the ravine. Any deviation to the left will take you out of the hole or elsewhere. Following a successful and safe drive on a narrow fairway, the player can select a medium or long iron, but the most experienced golfer could play a hybrid or wood. Who dares, wins. Players opting for a third shot could reach the green with a medium iron or wedge. The large green is surrounded by fairly deep bunkers. A real challenge.
After the last hole we have a modest par 3, this time of only 175 meters! However, this hole has the added bonus of a huge green. Wind conditions and club selection is vital, since it is almost surrounded by a gorge and the right side of the hole is protected by a steep rock wall. The green is defended by a large bunkers where many golfers would not mind landing with their tee shot.
The hole really needs to be played from the white tees!!
This spectacular closing hole offers magnificent views of the Rock of Gibraltar. The tee shot must be precise and send the ball at least 135 feet above the gorge to reach the fairway, measured at one point only seven paces wide. A bunker on the left, strategically located to 185 meters annoy more than a good drive, short is good. With any deviation to the left you will need to get the climbing equipment out. However, a good tee shot will be rewarded with a medium iron into a large green with two tiers protected by three bunkers. A true final hole. A GREAT DRIVE FROM THE WHITE TEE’s IS ESSENTIAL.
