Hole 1 is a straight shooting par 5 with a tricky twist in its tail caused by a large pine tree overhanging the approach to the green on the left side. Bunkers left and right
HOLE 2 (par 3)
Hole 2 is a cleverly designed par 3 with bunkers at front and on both sides, cunningly positioned to scoop up and punish the timid and errant.
HOLE 3 (par 4)
Hole 3, par 4, cuts between two water hazards, the lake and the reservoir, with slices and hooks equally waterbound. Dog-leg left. Green surround slopes away on three sides.
hole 4 (par 4)
Hole 4, par 4, heads back the other way with groves of trees creating concern left and right before dog-leg right. Bunker on right. Steep slope at rear of the green
hole 5 (par 5)
Hole 5, heads directly back to the Pro Shop with much undulation and strategically placed trees to make it a less than straightforward par 5. Deep bunker on left.
hole 6 (par 3)
Hole 6 is the course’s shortest hole where wind strength and direction can determine reaching for anything from a sandwedge to a 6 iron on this bunker-besieged par 3
hole 7 (par 4)
Hole 7 is a tricky right-bending par 4 where big-hitters can be punished in trees and rough terrain on the left and the more timid caught short behind trees on the right. Bunkers left and right.
hole 8 (par 4)
Hole 8 is a straight par 4, problematic if playing your second from in, or behind trees, at driving distance on both sides. Bunker on right. Tricky two-tiered green.
hole 9 (par 4)
Hole 9, is a long par 4 (ladies par 5) with a large overhanging tree creating a blind spot just short of the marker on left. Rogue trees play a significant role on both sides. Bunkers all round.
HOLE 10 (par 4)
Hole 10, a short par 4, heads north again. Green is best approached from the right, but watch the trees. Three bunkers.
HOLE 11 (par 3)
Hole 11, a longish, narrow, tree-lined, par 3 gauntlet. Errant shots left, right and over-the-back can be severely punished. Bunker on right.
Hole 12 (par 5)
Hole 12, aptly called “Hades”, is a par 5 that can be either heaven or hell. Out-of-bounds beckons on the right, trees and deep rough to the left. Green is tucked right, out of sight, behind a grove of pine trees and protected by two bunkers. Keep left is the local rule.
HOLE 13 (par 4)
Hole 13, par 4, is the start of the “Devil’s Triangle” and again hugs the course boundary with deep rough and tall trees left and right. Approach is from a shallow gully.
HOLE 14 (par 4)
Hole 14, par 4, faces directly south which means the green is makable in a strong northwester. Unprotected out-of-bounds is compelling. Tall timber on the left. OB just two metres from back of green. Two bunkers and sloping green.
HOLE 15 (par 4)
Hole 15, par 4, and you’re heading home. A big slice may put you on the local speedway track and a pull in deep rough behind tall trees. Steep dip in fairway 110 metres from green. Bunkers left and right.
hole 16 (par 4)
Hole 16, par 4, has unseen water hazard to the left. Big drives right can be caught behind tree line. Sloping green has bunkers right front, and left.
hole 17 (par 4)
Hole 17, par 4, calls for long drives to iron out the dog-leg left with a forest of pines catching short balls in this direction and nasty trees, bare earth, tree roots and deep rough on right. OB on right all the way to the green. Bunker right and left.
hole 18 (par 4)
Hole 18, par 4, calls for driving accuracy to avoid over-hanging pine on left and “The Ditch” which parallels fairway on the right all the way to the green. Practise fairway may save big hooks left. Bunkers front left, and both sides of green.
