This is what they say about Izki Golf
Hole by Hole
Hole 4 / Hard
Initially designed as a par 5, its length makes it one of the most difficult holes to par on the course. Make your tee shot to the left to avoid the trees on the right, leaving a long shot to a green that is barely visible. Bogey is an acceptable result for this hole.
Hole 5 / Protected green
This is a highly strategic short hole, which requires you to leave the ball on the left side of the fairway to get a direct view of the slightly elevated green that dog legs to the right. A long iron or 5-wood tee shot allows you to reach the green using a mid or short iron for a good result.
Hole 8 / No bunkers
For the big hitters, there is an opportunity to reach the green in two, wich is defended by a stream just across the front of the green. For the mid-level player, the strategy is simple: hit the second shot short of the water to leave a wedge to the green to get an easy par. Trying to approach the green in two might mean serious trouble to save par.
Hole 10 / Surrounded by woods
Since this is a narrow hole, a long iron is the best club choice to reach the fairway, but this leaves you with a virtually blind shot to the green. If you are willing to run the risk at your tee shot, the benefit of aiming the fairway is that you will be allowed a clear vision of the green, and the second shot will be very short. A beautiful for both its scenery and technique, possibly the most strategic hole.
Hole 13 / Gorgeous and original
Without a doubt, the most spectacular of all 18 holes for having three platforms separated by two banks. The mid-level players should aim for the first platform to then reach the green with a second stroke, and the higher handicap players should go from platform to platform o avoid the banks. A unique hole, like no other.
Hole 15 / Steep slope
A hole that curves to the right, this magnificent par 4 has an unique challenge where you hit the second shot above your feet due to the fairway curvature. Simply try to stay on the right side of the green to get a par with no further difficulties.
Hole 16 / Full of bunkers
Impressive par 4 with a view to Mount Alavesa and a tee box that is well defended by four bunkers, two on each side. A fifth bunker near the entry to the green makes it difficult to make it in just two shots. The average player should play before this bunker to make an easy par.
Hole 18 / Final test
Start off hitting a shot to the right to avoid the woods straight off the tee box and reach a fairway which curves to the left. The entry to an elevated green is heavily defended by a stream watercourse that makes reaching the green almost unthinkable. Great final hole to decide the game.
