Designed by Nick Faldo, with strategic play in mind, this course demands careful positioning to score well, rocky outcrops, meandering watercourses and views to the distant mountains and orange groves defining its essential character.
The course opens with a testing uphill, Par-4, offering a number of 'risk reward' opportunities. The downhill, Par-5, fourth encounters a meandering watercourse, which comes into play on three of the front 9 holes and two of the inward. The inward 9 holes include several, which will become the talking point of the '19th hole cognoscenti'. Mastering the massive Par-5 thirteenth, descending, with the wind behind, will demand consistent shot making all the way to the green. Holes 14 and 15 continue the challenge, playing amongst rocky outcrops. After leaving high ground to the west, the 18th brings the final chapter to a close with a magnificent Par-5.
