Hole Description of East Course 2    
Sometimes you should take it easy, and this relatively hazard-free Par 4 will allow you just that. Start off safely towards the wide, generous fairway that goes gently downhill and gradually climbs up towards an elevated green protected by a solitary bunker. Avoid hook shots to the left, as the view of the green is blocked by trees and an undulating lie, while the out of bounds area lies just beyond the fence on the left.
   
Don’t be deterred by the large lake of this contoured Par 11 that is destined to keep you coming back to Tropicana. Your tee-off shot must carry over the lake and on to a tight landing area guarded by a deep fairway bunker on the inside of the dogleg. Keep your aim in the middle as stray balls to the right on the shrub patch between the stream and the fence on the left is out of bounds. The contoured green is elevated and guarded by greenside bunkers.
   
This Par 4 hole doglegs right and features strong undulating fairway shaping that requires a left-handed careful approach. Keep your ball towards the left of the dogleg to avoid the fairway bunker on the inside of the dogleg. The green is elongated and protected by a greenside sand bunker on the front left.
   
The bunkers are here! Indeed this short Par 3 will demand an accurate tee-off to a fairly large green guarded by a series of small bunkers.
   
The longest Par 5, which will command plenty of respect on your revolutionary golfing escapade. The ideal drive should be as close as possible to the right side fairway traps, which allow you a clear passage past the next set of fairway bunkers on the left side. The smart move would be to lay your shots short of the traps, and be rewarded with a short pitch to the green. OB is on the right beyond the fence..
   
A relatively straight Par 4 hole, you will need two solid shots to reach the green. Any drives finding the sand from the tee will struggle to make four. Green side bunkers in front of the green will pose a greater challenge to the low handicappers.
   
This downhill Par 4 hole will offer the long hitters a challenge but remember to keep the ball around the contours on the right side of the fairway for a short iron home. The left side of the fairway is all trouble with a fairway trap and grassy hollows for any errant pulled tee shots, but keep your fingers crossed on the green which is fringed by two approach bunkers and a series of lakes on the left.
   
A tough Par 3 from the rear tee box. Although out of play, the water and multi-level fairway calls for a careful selection of clubs selection towards the contoured green which is heavily trapped on the left hand side..
   
This long Par 5 will entice you and poses quite a challenge. Long straight hitters will be rewarded with a shot home to a deceptive green but the not so brave will lay up for a short iron home onto a long stepped green guarded by a deep grassy hollow.
