Hole 1 - Par 4
This short, Dogleg left starting hole provides a strong challenge despite its benign appearance. The right side fairway bunker provides framing and is primarily a visual element, but it can affect club selection. Driver is not necessarily the best choice from the tee. Beware visual illusion of the left side cross bunker.
Hole 2 - Par 4
A signature “burn” borders the left side of this downhill par 4. The “burn” then swings hard to the right and crosses the fairway approximately 50 yards in front of the green. The position of the ”burn” and right side fairway bunkering constrict the landing area for long tee shots. The “burn” and deep bunkering guard the right side of this green complex.
Hole 3 - Par 5
Playing uphill at over 560 yards this is challenging par 5. In order to shortern the hole a tee shot must flirt with three deep fairway bunkers positioned inside the dogleg. A narrow approach to the green opens from the left side, but a series of bunkers guard the approach to the green and will force most golfers to lay-up. Pins positioned to the green’s right side wil provide very difficult targets.
Hole 4 - Par 3
Club selection is critical when playing to a right side pin placement on this downhill par 3. The left side of this green is much deeper ad provides a more receptive target. Regardless of pin position, do no over-club. The slope behind the green runs rapidly away.
Hole 5 - Par 5
The location of this green is one of the Suvarna’s most prominent, providing views over many of the northern golf holes. The tee shot is quite demanding and must negotiate a collection of five fairway bunkers. From here the fairway falls into a gentle valley, before rising to the prominent green. Favor the high left side on the approach.
Hole 6 - Par 3
This par 3 requires a forced carry over a small lake. The green mimics the shape of the lake, providing a much shorter carry to the right side. Attacking a left side pin position will require a much longer carry over the lake and will bring a deep lake-side pot bunker into play.
Hole 7 - Par 4
This is a beautiful, medium length par 4 that will play longer than its yardage due to its uphill design. This hole doglegs slightly to the left around a deep, linear fairway bunker. Deep cross-bunkers guard the green and place a premium on club selection. Front-left and back-right pin positions are both difficult targets. The green center provides the most receptive target.
Hole 8 - Par 3
This hole will be one of the world’s most challenging par 3s when played at 242 yards from the “devil’s tee”. The island green complex is heavily bunkered to provide a margin of error, but the elevated tees provide a clear view of the watery grave the farmers this signature hole.
Hole 9 - Par 5
Occupying the western edge of the Elysian Field this par 5 is crossed twice by one of our signature “burns”. The combination of wide fairways, strategic bunkering, historic trees and the interplay of the “burn” create multiple routes for attacking this hole. The second shot can take one of three distinct lines of play, depending upon a golfer’s tolerance for risk and reward. The well-bunkered green complex is perched above the “burn”. Take care not to under-club on the approach.
