Take plenty of balls, as the fairways are tight and unforgiving surrounded by gorse and ravines.

Tight beyond belief, difficult beyond anything I have ever seen before.
The first hole is extremely difficult with a narrow fairway and rocks to the sides of the fairway, which send your ball bouncing high into the sky, never to be seen again. As you progress the course gets tougher and if you are not really on top of your game you could easily become more and more disheartened as you progress around the course. I stopped counting shots after I lost my tenth golf ball! By the 18th I had suffered several episodes of golf rage and was close to a nervous breakdown.
