Favor the right side of the fairway to avoid the bunker and creek left.  The two-tiered green slopes away from the player, with an elevated front edge closely guarded by a front-right bunker.  Depending on the hole location, an approach shot played from the left side of the fairway into the front-left green opening may yield the best results.

A dogleg left with bunkers and creek on the left.  A tee shot played close to the bunkers provides the ideal angle into a two-tiered green which slopes from right to left.  Missing the green short-right leaves a player with a difficult pitch shot.

A challenging dogleg left with a hidden bunker on the left side of the fairway.  A tee shot to the right-center of the fairway will leave the player with an uphill shot into a multi-tiered green.  Par is a good score here.

Another long par four, this one a dogleg right. Tee shots down the right side have the shorter approach, but steer clear of the right fairway bunker. The peanut-shaped green is long from left to right, short from back to front. The bunker guarding the left front is further from the green than it looks, tempting players to underclub. Pin positions on the right side are not as easily accessible as those on the left.

The ideal approach on this long par three is to the right center of the green, avoiding the bunker and hazard left. The green slopes from back to front. Playing downwind, it's often best to bounce the ball into the green. Into the wind, you can swing away. Pars are well-earned.

A good tee shot here is critical. Direction is more important than distance. Short hitters may want to play to the right of the two big trees, staying clear of the grass bunker. Big hitters should play left of the big trees to avoid hitting straight through the fairway into the rough. A well struck tee shot gives the player an excellent birdie opportunity.

This dogleg right is the shortest par four on the course, but requires two accurate shots. A tee shot played to the right center of the fairway, close to the second bunker on the right, should leave the player with only a short iron second shot. The elevated green is triangle-shaped, with sizable mounds on the three points of the triangle, so the smart play may be to the center of the green, setting up another birdie opportunity.

Judging distance is key when hitting into this wide yet shallow green, which slopes from left to right. A solid shot played to the same section as the pin sets up a birdie chance and avoids the bogies that lurk behind the tree short left and in the grass bunker short right.

Hole #9

583 5 3
The longest hole on the course, reachable in two by only the biggest hitters. Playing down the right side shortens the hole but brings the water into play. Lay up second shots are best placed just left of the hazard and short of the fairway bunkers straight through the fairway. Bunkers guard the left front and right center of the green.

A dogleg right with water lurking near the fairway on the right. A tee shot played between the hazard and the left bunker leaves a relatively easy second shot into a sloping green. Going over the green will leave you with a difficult chip.

519 5 6
A straight-away par five reachable in two under favorable conditions. Favoring the right side of the fairway lets the player more easily negotiate the front-left greenside bunker, especially when the pin is tucked to the left. There is much more green to the right, so playing to the fat of the green and shaping your shot to roll from the mound in the green toward the pin may be your best play.

428 4 10
A narrow fairway with water on the right means players might want to leave the driver in the bag and hit a fairway wood or long iron for accuracy. The second shot into this elevated green plays longer than it looks. In addition, the green extends further back than one can see from the fairway, with a ridge dividing the green into back left and front right sections. Miss the green right and you face a tricky flop shot from the rough.

Placement is important off the tee on this dogleg left. Trying to cut the corner left will likely leave you in the hazard or in the trees. There is more room than it appears on the right side of the fairway. Correct club selection is essential for the approach into a long, undulating three-tier green -- perhaps several clubs difference from front to back.

 A water hazard guards the front, right and back sides of the wide green, which is narrow from front to back. A pin placement on the left side or center of the green is a green light to charge for birdie, while a pin tucked to the right should be given a bit more respect when choosing one's line of play.

A dogleg left par five which is unreachable for all except the biggest hitters. The tee shot should be placed between the bunker & hazard right and the trees left. A solid second shot in the fairway sets up the approach into a huge green guarded by bunkers left and right. Club selection here again is important to avoid leaving yourself in three-putt range.

A picturesque hole playing downhill with Baixian Lake as a backdrop. The design includes two greens, the left being the smallest green on the course at only 480 square meters. A particularly challenging shot when the wind blows.

Straight-away par four with green guarded by sand and grass bunkers. When the pin is tucked left, best to approach from the right side of the fairway. Conversely, when the pin is tucked right, the optimum play is from the left side.

A long, tough finishing hole, especially into the wind. Aim towards the Zelkova tree down the middle.  Your approach shot must carry the creek which crosses the fairway and connects the two water hazards.  The green slopes from right to left, away from the greenside bunker. On in regulation is excellent. Par rarely loses here.
