Dunes Golf & Beach Club
Another lovely course you have to play is the "Dunes Golf & Beach Club". It`s a 7 200 yard course on which nearly every hole culminates in an elevated green guarded by gaping bunkers.

The River Club

What about "The River Club"? This course is built in a very plantation-style with enough water (on 15 Holes) and nearly 100 bunkers. The fairways are nicely and wide but if you want to reach the green, you have to play very accurately. The last hole is a very interesting one. It is a dogleg left which you have to play down the water-lines left side and a green tucked next to the water. The third shot is a carry over the water. Details: Par 72, Rating: 70.2, Slope: 129

The Willbrook Course

"The Willbrook Course" is a very friendly course for women. There are wetlands and waterways and there are plantations and forests. The 15th hole is a very exciting one. It`s a par-5 dogleg left that slopes downhill. At the end is the green which is protected by deep bunkers. Marsh runs diagonally through the middle of the fairway.
