    Canyon Course: Top Holes

    Hole 13
    Requires a long drive over the rough terrain of a canyon and around a bend to the right, where the green lies. Tiger Woods once also carried the mass of bunkers and trees to reach the green on this par four with a superb drive from the back tee, so it is known as The Tiger Hole.

    Hole 14
    Requires an accurate shot from the top of a steep incline to an island green. The view on this par three is spectacular and the choice of the right club becomes exceptionally difficult, depending on prevailing conditions.

    Hole 17
    Is classed as one of the best par threes in the world. It requires a long, straight shot to avoid the mass of water that cuts into the fairway on the right. Bunkers surrounding a curling, sloping green. Little wonder hole in ones are a rarity.
