About the Course "The signature hole is the 11th which is a 348 yard downhill par 4 dogleg over an open cundy which requires a good well positioned tee shot if you are going to walk off the raised green with a par 4 on your card. Hit it straight and away from the trees and you should achieve par on this wonderful hole."
