Club Facilities & Service
I was told this clubhouse is for temporary only which is quite nice indeed. There are a reasonably good lobby, indoor and outdoor restaurant on second floor, a nice and clean changing room, proshop. This is originally designed for the driving range only. Good services from reception, locker room and restaurant. No complaint.
Fairway & Green maintenance
All teebxoes, fairways and greens are in great shape, no complaint at all. Green are smooth and reasonably fast.
Caddy Service & knowledge
OK for me and my playing partners
There are total 22 holes with 9 holes floodlit golfing.
I will consider this as a valley course. Designer spent a lot effort to scare you, some holes looks pretty tight, but infact, the landing area is a lot wider than you think. And in general, there are much room for errors, a slightly off track shot still can be recovered to lessen the damage. Don’t get me wrong, the design is interesting and very enjoyable. The blue tee plays almost 6,600 yards which is considered a little long for amateurs, but the white is only slightly over 5,800 which is pretty short for today’s standard.
Opening Par 5, dogleg left, wide fairway, not much trouble unless you………
Dogleg right, need 230 yards driving to clear the right bunker, stay away from water on the left. The semi island green is huge.
Long Par3 , slightly downslope
Straight forward hole, downslope teeshot, elevated green
Dogleg right, the right water stretches to the green.
Gold 378 Blue 329 White 128 Red 241
The most tricky part is knowing your distance and find the right landing point. Overhit will lead to OB
Massive and tricky green
The blue tee moved to white. The original blue which is up the hill provides gorgeous view. This is a short Par 4, with two greens, the original one is where you see infront and the newest one is hide behind trees on the right with water surrounded.
Dogleg right, avoid those bunkers lies on the landing area.

Hole #S Par 3
Gold 154 Blue 143 White 119 Red 111
This is a subsitute hole, slighly downslope.
It’s been almost two years since my last visit. I’m impressed that the course is getting a lot mature than I think together with the nice gardening. Course is in good shape. The green keeper still doing a good job.
The course design is fair and reasonable. I found the difficulty of play is just right for amatuers like me. Very enjoyable indeed. Most greens are quite tricky, 3 putts are not difficult to happen.
