Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course:

Originally built on rice paddies, the 6439 metre long course is generally quite flat, and is set amongst mature trees and shrubs, with each of the fairways lined with tall trees. As well, drainage ditches help to define the fairways, and in some places act as tricky water hazards. There is only one par 5 on the front nine, with four on the back.
