Hole by hole - Course Tips

Hole One

Aim the drive slightly right of the trap on the left. If you’re
laying up the fairway gets very tight at the 100m mark so the
ideal spot is 120m from the green

Hole Two

Par 4. The smart play is iron from the tee leaving a short iron
to the green. Leaving the ball below the hole is a must.

Hole Three

Par 5. Aim at the left edge of the right fairway trap. Lay
up shot should be left centre of the fairway avoiding pot
bunkers on the right.

Hole Four

Favour the right hand side here. Check the pin position as
you may have a long putt if the pin is at the back.

Hole Five

Par 5. Aim the tee shot left of the bunkers. With the approach
shot avoid the bunkers on the left. Best place to miss this
green is short right.

Hole Six

Par 4. Aim the tee shot towards the pot bunkers in the
distance. The challenge to this hole is to leave the approach
shot on the same level as the pin.

Hole Seven

Into the prevailing s/e wind this hole plays 2-3 clubs longer.
Surrounded by water the only place to miss the green is
short and left.

Hole Eight

Par 4. Aim the tee shot at the right edge of the first bunker to
avoid the water and give yourself the best angle to another
split level green.

Hole Nine

Par 4. Favour the left side of the fairway to avoid the fairway
traps to give you a good look at the green. An accurate
approach shot is needed.

Hole Ten

Avoid the pot bunker on the right at all cost, for the longer
players you can take it down the right of that bunker and
leave yourself a short approach. The green actually slants
front to back making the approach shot very difficult. Forget
where the pin is and aim for the middle of the green.

Hole Eleven

Par 5. Aim left of the fairway traps off the tee. Either lay up
short of the cross bunkers or take them for an easier pitch
and put birdie.

Hole Twelve

Par 4. A fairway metal or long iron aimed at the right bunkers
leaves a short iron or wedge to a small green that has trouble
over the back.

 

Hole Thirteen

Similar to the 12th the green measures 19m in depth but
plays closer to 10m. If the pin is on the left use the slope in
the middle of the green to feed your ball down to the hole.
The bail out area is anywhere right of the green

Hole Fourteen

Par 5. Must split the fairways traps off the tee. Either lap
up short of the creek or go for the green but it’s a risk and
reward shot.

Hole Fifteen

Par 4. Depending on the wind a fairway metal or driver may
be required from the tee but you must avoid the fairway
bunkers. A split-level green awaits -2 putts is a good result.

Hole Sixteen

Avoid the pot bunker on the right at all cost, for the longer
players you can take it down the right of that bunker and
leave yourself a short approach. The green actually slants
front to back making the approach shot very difficult. Forget
where the pin is and aim for the middle of the green.

Hole Seventeen

Par 3. Depending on the wind direction and location of the
flag you may need every bit of club in your bag and more.
Par feels like a birdie.

Hole Eighteen

Par 4. Favour left both off the tee and into the green to avoid
the water. Correct club choice is important for the approach
into the green to ensure a safe par to finish.
