The site is quite small, considering the modern standards, has a total surface of 38 hectare, but is gifted with a gentle rolling terrain and stunning view across the Lake and the surrounding mountains. The design process brought to a 5000 meters long golf course for a total par 68. The lower section of the site is covered by a small wetland that will be integrated in the design of the golf holes, in order to keep and enhance the environmental diversity of the site.
