Native to the area, the Asian Palm Civet is a small (43 – 71cm) lithe-bodied mostly nocturnal mammal. If you hear noises in your ceiling at night here, they are almost certainly being made by a Civet. They eat other small mammals, fruit and most famously – coffee beans (there are many coffee plants about Handara). Kopi Luwak is made from coffee beans that have been ingested, fermented and excreted by the Civet.
From the elevated tee box of this Par 4 you look down the fairway and then up to the green in the distance. It is the second hardest rated Hole on the Course. O.B. runs all along the left hand side. Your tee shot can be hit long and high – just don’t aim too far right as rough pinches in on this side opposite the disused reservoir. This Hole’s main defence is its green. It slopes severely from back to front and from right to left (especially on the right hand side). It is defended by a deep bunker front left.
Pro’s Tip – like Hole 5, you must avoid having to putt downhill on this green at all costs. Plan your approach to finish below (a must) and left (preferred) of the Hole.
