A view from the clubhouse

There are 27 holes in total, three 9 hole courses called Air Force, Navy and Army because the military owns it, are developed on flat terrain with a lot of water hazards. It was formerly named the Safra Resort. The condition of the greens is good but they are slow. The air Force Course is the longest and the tournament course is the Air Force & Navy Course which is 6912 yards long, rated as 71.2. The air force Course was under maintenance so I couldn’t play it.

A dogleg to the right par 5, reachable in 2. The fairway is narrow with trees hanging over on both sides, making the landing areas off the tee even tighter. A bunker on the left guards the green.

14th Par 4 383 yards (1)
An almost straight hole. The tee shot is demanding because of the tight landing area squeezed by OB on the right and a lake on the left. You should be careful of bunkers on both sides of the green and OB on the right when you hit the second shot.
19th hole
