Hole 1
You can feel right away the print of Sir Nick Faldo, with this challenging and beautiful par 4 starting hole. Tee shot is crucial to have a chance to find the green in regulation. However, a bogey here is quite acceptable.

Hole 3
This seemingly short par 4 may surprise you. The elevated tee shot (with beautiful views of the resort) makes you carefully choose the right club to place your ball in the correct spot and then attack the pin. It might be the first good birdie chance!

Hole 4
The first par 5 of the course. If you did well on the first 3 holes, this can be a good opportunity to boost your confidence going forward. Another elevated tee shot, but you need to be careful and avoid cutting the corner on the left side too much. Take a more conservative approach, and you might walk away with a birdie!
