The Dye design is spectacular, spacious and welcoming. Strategy on this links style design plays a major role in scoring well.With 7,163 yards ( 6,512 metres) long off the tips but can be played from four sets of tees all the way up to a more welcoming 5,266 yards ( 4,787 metres). Whereas the 1961 course had no water features, the new layout has two holes where water comes into play.

Another factor which will add greatly to the pleasure of playing the course will be that the variety of grass has been changed from a hostile kikuyu to a far friendlier and less water consuming paspalum which permits the links style of golf to be playable, the ball responding to the humps and hollows on its way to the flag.
