The terrain is fairly flat with mounding and small hills off the sides of fairway. Trees line and tighten the landing zones and the fairways slope toward the water hazards to challenge the tee shots on several holes. The large sloping greens are well guarded by bunkers and mounding. The 3470 yard back nine plays long and is the more challenging of the two. The front nine is 3275 yards long and features some short but interesting par fours ,including the 323 yard first, 376 yard third and the 325 yard fifth.
