HOLE BY HOLE

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.
