The course is set on rolling country giving a great variety of holes and many different lies.
Although not long, accuracy of the tee is essential as many holes are situated around the boundary of the course.
Many of the greens are protected by bunkers or grass mounds and there are also water hazards to contend with.
Without fairway watering the course plays shorter in the summer months, but the harder grounds and bounces create different challenges. In the winter, although well drained, the course plays longer than its yardage.
It is an enjoyable, fun, but challenging course to play for players of all abilities.
The course has an NZGA slope rating of 124 (122 for women).
