A very unusual course for a number of reasons. First, it's in a relatively urban area, but very quiet and rarely booked out. Second, it's completely flat and very open with little rough, but the routing is so good, that it hardly ever feels cramped and there is enough separation between the holes. Third, its styling is somewhat reminiscent of Augusta National in that there are flowers and colorful shrubs everywhere.

It looks like a garden and in a sense also plays like one. Everything is spread out very clearly before the eye, there are hardly any rough edges and everything looks perfectly in place. While the absence of an element of surprise may be seen as a negative, it works very well for this cheerful and uncluttered course. The huge green complexes are stunning, as they generally look rather inviting, but on closer inspection feature a number of subtle short game problems.

Not only the holes are neatly arranged, there are also very good practice facilities and a world-class clubhouse terrace with the drama on greens 9 and 18 in full view.
