Course Info

Greens
Type of grass - mix of Poa Annua and Bent grass
Height of cut - 2.8mm
Speed / stimpmeter reading - 10'6"
Any specific comments - Greens quite small and re-design means that many of them have run-offs which make them very hard to hit and keep the ball on.

Fairways
Type of grass - mix of Poa Annua and Rye grass
Height of cut - 11mm
General width and contouring - average width but due to mountainside location many are severely uphill or downhill

Tees / collars
Type of grass - mix of Poa Annua and Rye grass
Height of cut - 10mm

Rough
Type of grass - mix of Poa Annua and Rye grass
Height of cut - semi 1.8m wide at 38mm, intermediate 1.8m wide at 64mm, rough outside of this topped at 90mm
Any specific comments - Not particularly penal following hot and dry summer.

Weather
Weather in advance - Hot and dry but with rain in the last week.
Forecast for tournament - Mild with potential of some heavy rain.

Course
Opened - 1908
Course designer - Freemantle and Gedge, redesigned by M Nicholson in 1929 and then again by Seve Ballesteros in 1999
Special features - the 5th and 6th are drivable par 4s but very tight so a risky play, while the 7th is a drivable par 4 for everyone although out of bounds is quite close on the right of the green
General playability - the course plays quite tough with the design and firmness of the greens which shed balls if not properly controlled as well as the ball travelling at least another 10 per cent at altitude
Undulating / flat - very undulating
Tree lined / exposed - tree lined in most places
Many / few water hazards - a few hazards most noticeably on holes 14 and 18
Changes to the course - none

Other features
The most stunning venue on Tour with views up to the Pleine Morte Glacier and across the mountain ranges and valley below the 7th tee
