Named for the Pakis tree ferns which can be found growing on the little island in the fairway bunker on the left hand side. Like all ferns, tree ferns reproduce by means of spores which develop on the underside of the fronds. At Handara the largest accumulations of these slow growing ferns (which produce no flowers or fruit) can be found close to the base of Pengelengan Hill which provides them with the most hours of shade.
The longest Par 4 on the Course and a good driving Hole. There is O.B. on the left and the generous, undulating fairway slopes moderately from left to right. The large green is roughly oblong shaped – deeper than it is wide. It is guarded by a deep bunker on the right. The green slopes both from left to right and slightly from back to front.
Pro’s Tip – drive it long as the further you can get down the fairway, the better the chance you will have of getting close to the pin.
