Club Facilities & Service
This club is for member & guests only so I never had a chance to play until I met a gentleman from our society who is a member there.
The club is well quipped & nicely decorated, service of the staff was also courteous.
Fairway & Green maintenance
Very nicely maintained .
Caddy Service & knowledge
So so, knowledge of the course was quite good but not very willing to find my lost balls.
This is a 27 holes course which is divided into 3 combinations & I played from the 6,464 yards blue tee of Lychee course (1st -9th & 19th – 27th).
The course is built on a relatively flat piece of land with not much up & down hill so walking around without cart wasn’t a problem. Some of the holes are nicely design such as the interesting 5th hole & 23rd par 5.
To sum up, the 1 – 9th played a bit harder than the back as there are more water hazards & more sloppy greens
As to the landscaping, I think the back 9 was much more interesting & scenic with the view of the lake than the front 9 which overlook some of the old building
Medium range par 4, the 2nd needs to carry some water.
There are bunkers & rough on the right side, should aim to the left.
A very narrow neck to the green too.
An elevated green, have to land soft.
Water is the right side all the way to the green.
Also bunkers on the left of fairway.
Use your mid iron or wood for position.
The green here is tiny.
Use a longer club on this as short is no good (bunkers are on the front portion of the green.
The tee shot is going gently down slope and going back up on the 2nd.
Another down slope and the 2nd going up.
Long par 4, the 2nd will need to carry some channel.
A short par 5, this can be reached with two nice shots.
Going gentlly up slope, if you are short, the 2nd will be blind.
A small dogleg left, going down slope & back up.
A downhill par 3.
This is one of the nicest hole.
The fairway is divided into 2 portions & you will need to carry each shot the the right fairway.
Need to carry all the way to the green on this green.
Aim left is a safer option.
A long par 4, need a good drive to par.
Water & fairway bunker on the right.
Water in front, the 2nd will need to carry the some channel too.
My impression of both the club & service was quite good, the course was also nicely maintained.
