The total distance of the course is 6,249 metres and it is a par 72. The course has an interesting variety of 18 holes as the objective of Robert Trent Jones Snr was to create a golf course where all types of golfers could play but one that was also difficult for even the most expert golfers to be challenged and to make them enjoy the later holes.
