This course has gone under a major "surgery" since 1989: greens 2,7,11,12,14,15 & 17 were redesiged and rebuilt, plus distance was added on 1,2,4,8,12,13,14 and 17, so the course was adapted to actual technology. It is a parkland with some of the american style, narrow fairways and dense woods and fast, really fast greeens. The course plays very different for members than when prepared for a championship. You need to be an accurate driver and be able to manage both effects, as there are plenty of doglegs to both sides. Best hole? par 4 #3 dogleg to the left, with a huge eucalyptus woods on the left and a tough green. Par 5 #15 is the other one, a small pond makes you think it twice before going for the green in 2.
