The course is laid out on a hilly countryside with good uphill and downhill fairways. The greens are not in good condition but they are hard, so you need to spin balls to bite the greens; otherwise, approach shots off the greens are tough because most greens are elevated and contoured. Compared to the average Gary Player designed courses, this course is not that challenging partly due to the small number of trees separating holes and partly due to the small sizes of the trees, even if a hole has many, even though the course has been opened for more than 10 years.

A slightly downhill par 3 from an elevated tee. Avoid hitting into bunkers left of the green because they are deep.

A downhill, pretty par 3. The green slopes from front to back and bunkers guard the green.

You can drive hard because the fairway is wide. However, you need to lay up in front of a pond, extending from the front edge of the green to 120 yards off the green, by using a middle iron. The view of the green is nice when seen from in front of the pond.
 
18th Par 4 436 yards
A long, gentle dogleg to the right. The fairway is tight with a series of bunkers on the right and a natural pond on the left, so a long as well as precise drive is required on this excellent hole. The second shot is gently uphill and the contoured green is guarded by bunkers.
