Tiger Woods won the Asian Honda Classic here back in 1997 and from the back tees measures 7,157 yards, but like all modern tracks there are four tees to choose from on this Denis Griffiths design. The amazing award winning clubhouse design, with its stunning views out across the course from the balcony, welcomes you, as does the unexpected warm plunge pool in the menís locker room. All this adds to the elegance of the day.
Your day will just get better once you step onto the first tee, itís a gently opening hole with water on the left and behind the green of this 375 yard par 4. Water is a feature on 18 holes on this track and comes in to play on all the par 3s, with some great risk and reward holes on two of the four par 5s, the 523 yard 4th and 570 yard 17th both have carries over water if you go for the green in two.
The 18th is a worthy finishing hole, there is a 64-yard difference between the black and blue tees. Its easy to get distracted by the view from the fairway to the green, the clubhouse makes a great backdrop with water to the left of the green, which has a fantastic water feature, be careful as the water is only a couple of yards over the back of the green and anything long will be wet.
