Hole Professional Tips
1 Good starting hole with trees left of tee. Best line is right of the centre, leaving a good position to play second shot, with pitch to green
2 Fairly easy short hole with bunkers front and left and rear. Mind major factor in selection of iron.
3 Trees either side of the fairway with bunker left. Right side of fairway is preferred area to play second shot, with the green protected by a wasteland bunker short left of the green and bunker right.
4 Trees again either side of fairway. Drive needs to be right of centre, allowing view of the green over a slight rise, looking down to the green with bunker left.
5 Hole 5
6 Sweeping dog-leg right, drive between bunkers, second shot hit at the marker post to give easier access for approach shot.
7 A long hole uphill to an elevated green. Drive over water well in centre of fairway, leaving quite a long carrying shot with bunkers all around front of green.
8 Straightforward driving hole with trees either side of fairway, leaving medium club second shot to green with a bunker at the back.
9 Trees either side. Driving towards the clubhouse, medium iron to green out of bounds at rear of green
10 THE SIGNATURE HOLE.This hole is the hardest hole on the course (stroke index 1).Out of bounds all down the left, drive needs to be either short of large bunker in centre of fairway, or to the right, leaving you a choice of going for the green with your second over a large lake on the right of the fairway all the way to the green. Alternatively play your second shot over the very large tree known as
11 Drive between bunkers, second shot over the rise towards the green and pitch to a well guarded green out of bounds, all down the left.
12 THE JEWEL OF RIAShort par 4, keeping drive to the right of fairway with short second shot to green.Whilst playing this hole look to your left to see the stunning view of the coastline from Vila Real de St.
13 Long par 3 with huge bunker left of the green and bunker on right. This shot needs accuracy and usually plays a wood, depending on the wind. A good challenge!
14 Played as a dog-leg, a short wood or medium iron to the middle of fairway, then second shot over a lake to the green.
15 Out of bounds left keep drive right of fairway bunker. Second shot straightforward to green with bunkers left and right.
16 Out of Bounds left, water right, ideal shot from tee is to aim for left-hand bunker, once on the fairway there is water now on both sides, play your second shot towards the right side of the fairway, leaving you with a shot to the green over the left water hazard.
17 Depending on the wind, a long iron to medium iron to the green with water on the right. Ideal shot is to come in from the left, just inside the bunker left of the green.
18 Good finishing hole, keeping the drive up the right side of fairway. Make sure you do not reach the left bunker with a tree in the middle. Reasonably long second to carry the bunker in front of the green.
