The 9 hole golf course offers a large variety of holes so you never have a dull moment. It starts with a very short hole where precision is the key word. A 130m par 3 with a vertical drop of 15 meters to a green that looks like a giant foot. Your walk will lead you along some small lakes and on some small hills with magnificent views. The large and very sloping greens will demand every bit of technique and concentration from you. This course is a pleasure to play on.
