You are eased into the game here with a couple of simple par 4s to get you on your way.
The third is a short but challenging par 4 that requires only a fairway wood from the tee. The second shot is key on this hole, with water surrounding the green requiring a controlled and directed shot into the green.
The fifth is a true three shot par five, that will test even the greatest golfers. The tee shot must be well positioned with water all down the right hand side. Depending on the tee from which you play you can make the hole shorter by taking on more of the lake, but beware get it wrong and you will be punished. The second shot has to be played short of the bunkers that lie in the middle of the fairway, which will leave a tricky approach over the water to the green.
The 8th is the longest par three in the Emirates, played downhill from the tee, you wil require a fairway wood from the tee to reach the crescent shaped green protected with a deep bunker to the left and a tidal channel to the right.
The short dogleg 14th will have the longer hitters trying to hit the green from the tee, over the mangroves. Too far left and you will be left with an almost impossible approach, play safe and give yourself a great chance at a birdie.
The 18th is a great final hole, giving the golfer a perfect risk and reward hole. Water to the left requires a well struck tee shot to leave you with a chance of getting home in two. The second shot played over the water to an almost island green, bordered by bunkers could yield a birdie or even an eagle, miss the green and you could wrack up a big score.
