Framed by a wide variety of captivating flora carefully selected to reflect the overall theme and to enhance its natural setting. Fire is in complete harmony with its surroundings. The undulating topography with its considerable protrusions creates a more challenging level of play. Rustic and so visually stunning as to captivate even those who do not golf. The Fire course demands a well-thought-out strategy. Going directly at the flag may not always be the best approach which gives Fire a strong sense of classic links-style play.
