The course is a par 60 and has 9 holes, which vary in length from 70 to 288 meters.

Although the holes are short, they are technically demanding and difficult due to the many slopes and narrow fairways. A seemingly simple battle can turn into a nightmare. The distribution of trees and bunkers makes playing here challenging and varied.

The course is divided into 9 holes, but you can also play a round of 18, where you can tee off the second round from another location.
