The four par 3’s are quite demanding, given their length. The shortest is the 165-yard 6th , a hill-top tee with views over the entire valley and Dam, jungle to the left and right, a pond in front and bunkers behind the green. What more can be said? A dramatic approach to the finish through an uphill alley of native trees, the short but extraordinarily steep 215-yard 16th requires a demanding, well-positioned tee shot, followed by an approach shot with bunkers left and right.
