Yellow

YELLOW COURSE

The Yellow course is composed of the “Piscina” and “Abajo” nine-hole layouts.
The front nine is easier than the second, so you need to use that to your advantage before facing the nine longer and more demanding closing holes. It is an open course and therefore requires you to control the effect of the wind that can cause plenty of problems on blustery days.
The eighth, 16th and 18th holes will have a big to say on how you score. The 498-metre par five stroke 16th calls for some careful thought and avoiding the bunker on the left side with your tee shot is a must. The second shot ideally needs to leave you 50-60 yards from the green to attack it from above. Even from here there is plenty of trouble with bunkers front and back and a green that slopes menacingly back to front.
The 18th is a fantastic 426-metre par four finishing hole and one of the hardest on the course. This long, uphill hole demands a strong drive that should hug the right side of the fairway, leaving a long iron approach to a long green that is guarded by a bunker on the right and a hollow to the left.

Course distance: 6.673 meters

A par four that runs gently downhill, with bunkers to the left and the right along the drop of the tee shot that need to be avoided. The second shot is complicated, with a narrow, downward sloping green running diagonal to the fairway and flanked by two bunkers on its right shoulder.

Uphill par four requiring a well-placed tee shot slightly to the left of centre and a good second swing uphill using a mid-iron to a green protected by bunkers along its left edge. It’s advisable to stay to the right in case you miss the green – a good approach from that side can save the par for the hole.

Achievable par five where big hitters can reach the green in two shots, but which requires high, long drives due to the height of the green and the bunker on the left side and the hollow to the right. It’s important not to stray away from the fairway, especially to the right. The rolling green is split into three distinct areas.

Long par four requiring a powerful drive, taking care not to go off the fairway to the right and land in the hazard that runs the length of the hole. The second shot requires a long iron to reach a broad green with a large bunker to the left and a waste area to the right. Making par is quite a challenge!

Uphill par five, the green can be reached in two shots by hard hitters. Drive required to get past the waste area to the right, and a good second shot will usually leave players with a blind approach given the huge bunkers on the right side of the green. The green runs diagonally, making for a hard putt if your approach passes the flag.

Par four requiring power and accuracy. The tee shot is flanked by bunkers to right and left, and you need a mid-iron for the second shot to land you in a crosswise green that is protected by an array of bunkers in front and a dense forest behind. But to do so, your approach shot must be high and well-placed for the ball to stay on the green.

A great par five, where a good deal of strategy is needed. The tee shot to the right has to avoid the bunker on the left side. The second shot requires a long iron or wood to place the ball 50 or 60 yards from the green in order to approach it from above. The green is defended by bunkers to the front and back, and slopes from back to front.

The long, uphill hole requires a strong drive hugging the right side of the fairway, then a long iron to approach the long, crosswise green defended by a bunker on the right and a slight hollow on the left. Making par is quite a challenge!
