Hole 1

The 1st hole is a dog leg left. A straight drive avoiding trees on both sides will set you up for a short iron to the green. Ensure you take enough club to clear the front left hand sand trap.


Hole 2

The 2nd is a dog leg to the right with water on both side waiting for a wayward drive. Your second shot needs to be high and well judged to avoid two front bunkers and stop the ball on the green before it runs into the grassed hollow behind the green.

Hole 3

This long Par 3 starts with a water carry for the men. If you cannot reach the green, smart play is to lay up short avoiding the front bunker. Chip and a putt will give you your par.

Hole 4

This is a relatively straight par 4 but aim your drive towards the three poles to the right to avoid the creek on the left. The green is protected by a large front bunker so take enough club reach the centre.

Hole 5

This Par 3 can be deceptively long as a cross wind can knock your ball down as you hit across the creek. The large left hand bunker is a regular second shot play for many.

Hole 6

A straight drive is necessary to avoid trees and bunkers on the left. Keep your second shot to left side of the fairway away from the pond to set up for your third to the green avoiding the large right green side bunker.

Hole 7

This is a long Par 4 which requires a straight drive to avoid the pond on the right. Take advantage of the slope on the left to run your second shot onto the green.

Hole 8

A drive down the middle will avoid two fairway bunkers on the left. A long iron or 3 wood second shot will leave a short wedge to the green.

Hole 9

This is the easiest rated hole on the course. Avoid the hidden fairway bunker and trees on the right and you will have an easy short iron to the green.

Hole 10

For most this is not a hole for the driver with trees to left and water right. If you avoid the trees your second shot will need to be accurate to land on the green.

Hole 11

This is a long par 3 over a creek. A par will be well earned if the pin is at the back.

Hole 12

This dogleg par 4 needs a good drive to the corner to ensure a clear 150 metre shot to the green.

Hole 13

A good drive short of the foot bridge will set up your second shot over the pond. A high third shot is needed to hold the tiered green.

Hole 14

A short par 4 over the pond tempts the bigger hitters to drive the green. The front bunker catches anything short.

Hole 15

A drive center right will avoid the large fairway bunker leaving a short iron to the green.

Hole 16

This challenging par 5 has water down the left hand side. A long tee shot past the “Hero” marker temps the big hitters to carry the water over 220 metres to the green. For most a second long iron down the fairway will leave a wedge over water to the green.

Hole 17

Only 135 metres, this green is protected by bunkers front and rear. Wind direction can vary club selection widely.

Hole 18

A drive right may find the pond. Your second shot must clear the front bunkers to reach the green. Rated No 1, par on this final hole is a good result.
