The courses are pretty with flowering trees and with some holes having views of the lake.

Although the course is not hilly, it does have some undulations, a variety of left and right doglegs as well as water hazards that come into play in many holes.

One notable aspect of this course is the big-sized greens that feature on many holes.

The course also has a nice layout with a circular pattern and one can play the 3 courses in any 18-hole combination.

Each of the 3 combinations measures more than 6800 yards in length and so is relatively lengthy. 

With 5 sets of tees and with 3 combinations to choose from, this course can be challenging and fun for both novice and beginner golfers.
