  6. The Course and the Club House and Practice facilities
  7. The Lakes Course 

    On May 29, 2010 Lakes Course was inaugurated by the current European Tour winner Peter Hanson and golf course architect Kyle Phillips. The course was then fully opened to the public on June 29.

    Here the player faces typical creeping bent grasses, small greens, more water hazards and large bunkers. The course has been built with the most modern methods and completely in harmony with nature. Right from the opening, the Lakes Course is a terrific test of golf and thoroughly examines the best of quality players.

    You play with the clubhouse in the background and views over the beautiful countryside. The large, purpose-built lake bordering holes 9, 17 and 18 is daunting and provides a true test and fabulous backdrop for any connoisseur of the game.
