Course

1st

  • Men Par 4 | 287m | 12/30
  • Women Par 4 | 273m | 12/30

A short par 4 that has risk and reward available, the longer hitters can have a shot at the green however 6 bunkers and OOB all the way down the right await a miss hit. The alternative is to lay up short of the fairway bunkers which leaves a mid iron to a difficult green.

2nd

  • Men Par 3 | 154m | 14/32
  • Women Par 3 | 141m | 16/34

A great par 3 that has some demons not visible from the tee, a very undulating green with savage drop offs at the front left hand side and over the back, Bunkers also protect the right hand side of the green. Middle of the green and two putts should always be the plan.

3rd

  • Men Par 4 | 361m | 6/24
  • Women Par 4 | 346m | 2/20/38

This hole has recently been lengthened to 361 metres. A good drive will leave you with a mid shot to the green, a large collection area will grab anything to the right of the green, the green also is quite long with plenty of break, try and finish below the hole.

4th

  • Men Par 4 | 396m | 2/20
  • Women Par 4 | 328m | 8/26/44

A strong par 4 which into the prevailing north east winds provides a test. A drive up the left side will give you the best angle to the green which slopes front to back with a nasty bunker protecting it short right and two grass bunkers left of the green. The safest place on the green is towards the back as the green widens.

5th

  • Men Par 5 | 440m | 10/28
  • Women Par 5 | 383m | 6/24/42

A solid par 5 with OOB guarding the length of the hole on the right, missing the many fairway traps off the tee is a must. The longer hitters can have a go at the green but, watch the bunkers either side of the green and hazard left of the green. Shorter hitters should aim to be around 100 metres from the green which will give a good look at the green, an accurate approach is important as this green is enormous.

6th

  • Men Par 3 | 114m | 18/36
  • Women Par 3 | 110m | 18/36

This hole is brand new and a great test for a short par 3, measuring just 114 metres the green is smaller than normal for this course, it is also a built up green which leaves really tricky chip shots if you miss thee green, Also if you miss the green long expect to make a bogey at best.

7th

  • Men Par 4 | 326m | 16/34
  • Women Par 4 | 310m | 14/32

A shortish dog leg right par 4, three bunkers about 100m from the green await the long hitters. OOB the length of the hole on the right is there as well. The green is protected by bunkers left and right of the green. A wedge in for the longer hitters or a good chip and run down the slope for the shorter hitters will give you a great chance of scoring well on this hole.

8th

  • Men Par 3 | 189m | 8/26
  • Women Par 3 | 162m | 10/28

A strong par 3 from the back especially into a westerly wind. Once again OOB runs the length of the hole on the right. This is the only hole on the course without a bunker however the green sits on top of a hill with any shot short left or long running down a steep slope. Do not be long on this hole.

9th

  • Men Par 5 | 457m | 4/22
  • Women Par 5 | 383m | 4/22/40

A great par 5. OOB protects the right hand side again. Fairway bunkers protect either side of the fairway for the tee shot and the fairway narrows considerably about the 250m mark. From here the fairway undulates considerably making it hard to get a flat lie. A deep fairway trap about 80m out needs to be avoided and the green appears to have a false front. A bunker protects the right of the green. This is certainly a risk and reward hole with many more double bogeys to be recorded than birdies if you are not precise.

  • Men Par 3 | 199m | 9/27
  • Women Par 4 | 199m | 17/35

A strong par 3 with a bunker in the front right hand corner of the green which will catch any ball that doesn’t have the legs to carry on to the green. The way to play the hole is to aim at the left side of the green and let the contours help you.

11th

  • Men Par 3 | 125m | 17/35
  • Women Par 3 | 125m | 13/31

A shortish par 3 with OOB over the back. The green has severe undulations with the best leave being towards the back on the right hand side. From this point you will have the easiest putt on a very difficult green. The green is also surrounded by four deep bunkers which will test your skills if you find them.

12th

  • Men Par 4 | 280m | 15/33
  • Women Par 4 | 280m | 15/33

A great risk and reward par 4. OOB guards the length of the hole on the right. A strategic bunker invisible from the tee about 130 m from the green is right on many club members driving distance. The green is guarded either side by bunkers and the huge green has three large tiers on it. Ensure your second shot is on the right tier and you will score well. The wrong levels often means 3 or more putts.

13th

  • Men Par 5 | 518m | 1/19
  • Women Par 5 | 468m | 1/19/37

Arguably the toughest hole on the course. This par 5 generally plays straight into the north East winds which makes it a brute. The length of the hole again has OOB on the right. A number of strategic fairway bunkers are in play. The second shot for the big hitters is the key with hazard all the way down the hole on the left and bunkers either side of the green, for many a lay up is the best option. Club members here are glad to put two points on their card and move to the next tee.

  • Men Par 4 | 254m | 13/31
  • Women Par 4 | 249m | 9/27/45

Another fantastic short par 4. Reachable by most A graders, some with a fairway wood, this hole offers the chance of a birdie or eagle. The long skinny green with slopes that feed into well placed bunkers offer good protection. A sensible person would play this hole with an iron short of the fairway bunkers and a wedge to the green.

15th

  • Men Par 3 | 166m | 7/25
  • Women Par 3 | 149m | 11/29

A strong par 3 especially into the North East winds. A hazard guards the left side of the hole. The slightly elevated green protected by a deep bunker on the right and a grass bunker left. If you miss this green left or right you will have a difficult chip, if you miss the green it is best to be short.

16th

  • Men Par 4 | 410m | 3/21
  • Women Par 4 | 316m | 7/25/43

The longest par 4 on the course and again it normally plays into the north east winds. A good drive is needed and an approach to the left centre of the green which will feed towards the centre steering clear of the left greenside and front right traps. Most are happy with a bogey on this hole.

  • Men Par 5 | 426m | 11/29
  • Women Par 5 | 386m | 5/23/41

This hole has just been lengthened to a 426m par 5. Out of bounds guards the right hand side of the hole. For the longer hitters the green is well within reach for 2 however a blind shot and a green surrounded by bunkers is the risk you take, for the shorter hitters a second shot to the top tear around 100m from the green will give you a great view of the green for you third.

18th

  • Men Par 5 | 460m | 5/23
  • Women Par 5 | 444m | 3/21/39

A medium length par 5 with OOB all the way up the right. This hole is all about the tee shot as the hitting area widens as you get further up the fairway. The Green is a massive 56 m in length so club selection on approach is critical. Green side bunkers protect the large green as does the elephant buried in the middle of the green, 3 and 4 putts are not uncommon on this green.
