Here is a preview of Mangrove Bay. This golf course is set on a fictional piece of property located in a mountainous jungle.

Hole #1 - This short 385 yard par 4 will give you a great chance to make birdie right out of the gate, but make sure to hit this green. water guards the front edge while the back drops off into a valley creating an intimidating chip shot back to the playing surface.

Hole #2 - Unless this hole is playing straight down wind, you will likely have to lay back of the water leaving a lengthy second shot into this 425 yard par 4. The green is guarded by steep bunkering and calls for a high cut into the green. If you manage to make birdie here, feel like you have gained strokes on the field.

Hole #3 - This 195 yard par 3 has no bunkering and looks benign off the tee, but if you find the wrong level of the putting surface you will likely be faced with a steep challenge to make par.

Hole #4 - Stretching to 440 yards this medium length par requires a precise tee shot that wraps around the left side of the fairway. If you are able to navigate around the bunkers you will face a mid iron second shot into a narrow green.

Hole #5 - This 435 yard par 4 plays much longer than its indicated yardage. The hole plays roughly 100 feet uphill as you make your way into the mountainous section of the front nine. Finding the fairway will not be a problem, but finding the green may. Perched high above the fairway and guarded by several bunkers, this appears to be the leading candidate for the most difficult hole on the outward nine.

Hole #6 - An island green perched 85 feet below the teeing area plays much shorter than its 185 yards posted. Despite its length and several slope, the green is fairly flat and gives you a great birdie opportunity before heading to the difficult 7th.
