Other facilities include a restaurant (offering a daily menu designed by golf lovers), a playground, two paddle courts and dressing rooms.

The course has a design that makes it very technical and tight at the same time.  It consists of 9 holes with a second set of tees.  Longest hole is 111 metres and shortest is 41 metres.

The first is the longest hole on the course.  It's particularly difficult on the second nine, with a distance of 111 meters. It has out of bounds on both sides of the fairway and a bunker. The green is large and is protected by a bunker on the right side of the entrance.

Third is 69 metres long with out of bounds on the left. The green is wide with a steep slope.

The 6th hole measures 56 metres and the main obstacle is water on the left. The green is quite large but is well protected by the lagoon that surrounds it.

The target at the 9th is 83 metres away with water to the left, a "waste area" on the banks of the pond and a bunker defence at the entrance of the horseshoe shaped green.
