Water hazards await the wayward ball - especially on the tricky first hole which is a lengthy par-4.

CAMPO REAL

The first hole questions the player with a strategic lake on the front right. The next hole takes the golfer takes the golfer back alongside the same lake, but this time, a stream runs the length of the hole on the left making a straight shot imperative - the level of challenge has now been set for the course!

Each successive hole has been successfully designed by Donald Steel to question most golfers for their choice of club and ball positioning. Not to leave anything out, the last two holes which are both Par 5's, test the driving abilities of the player.
