The lake and high mountain range provide imposing backdrops to this championship course.

It was re-opened two years ago with faster greens that are now closer to the many water hazards.

Some of the early holes are situated very close to the lake and are consequently more memorable, especially the excellent 4th, and also the 10th, a corking one-shotter over water to a semi-island green.

The greens are consistently excellent – absolutely beautiful putting surfaces and really quick.

A great finishing hole where, according to the club’s website, a par is really a birdie. SP

+ Beautiful, dramatic and even romantic setting
– Back nine not as memorable as front nine
