A long par 3 over water. A bunker on the right and a lake on the left protect the narrow green.
4th Par 4 390 yards
A neat dogleg to the left. The tee shot is over water and accuracy rather than distance is more important off the tee. A large bunker in front of the green should be avoided on the second shot.

13th Par 3 205 yards (1)
A challenging hole over water. This is long and a lake on the right is close to the green, so a left to right hitter needs to be careful.
16th Par 4 402 yards

16th Par 4 402 yards (1)
A dogleg to the right. A river runs along the right off the tee and the fairway is narrow, so an accurate shot is required. The second shot is over the river to the deep green with subtle undulations.
18th Par 4 469 yards

18th Par 4 469 yards (1)
A very long, slight dogleg to the left with water all along the left. You need to hit long and precisely in order to hit the green in regulation. Be careful of the water on the left of the green, as it will easily catch your bad second shot.
