Hole by Hole

Hole 1, Par 5 (438 m)

A slight dogleg from the tee to a wide open fairway. Too far left or right can see second shot blocked. The green is protected by a large bunker in the front, and also slopes away to the back right.

Hole 2, Par 3 (143 m)

This tee shot requires accuracy and carry, despite only being 143 metres. Short tee shots can be caught in the treed creek or roll off the sloping green. Bunkers are positioned left and right and too long can make a very difficult downhill chip.

Hole 3, Par 4 (354 m)

A mostly straight hole although shots too far right can be blocked off and left may catch timber also. Bunker short left often comes into play. Large flat green.

Hole 4, Par 4 (358 m)

A right hand dogleg, with out of bounds also protecting the hole on the right. Keep the tee shot straight and a good second can see par. Beware of the bunker behind the green.

Hole 5, Par 4 (403 m)

Straight away par 4 with a wide fairway. Usually this hole is into the wind, often causing golf balls to stray. Medium sized green with slope from the back. Always a difficult hole.

Hole 6, Par 4 (390 m)

Another dogleg hole, however longer hitters can take on the large cypress tree to set up the second shot to a smallish green, protected by a small bunker front left.

Hole 7, Par 5 (465 m)

Straight away par 5 with wide landing area. Second shot across the road, will leave a short shot to a difficult green with bunkers left and right. Too far right can make it difficult to hold the green.

Hole 8, Par 3 (137 m)

Small green protected at front and to the right with bunkers. The putt often seems to have no break, but often turns to the road.

Hole 9, Par 4 (305 m)

Out of bounds to the right but the wide fairway leaves a shortish second shot to a large green. The bunker at the back-right of the green catches many overplayed balls.

Hole 10, Par 3 (137 m)

Downhill Par 3, more difficult than it seems Out of bounds over the back will catch any long shots.

Hole 11, Par 4 (328 m)

Difficult dog leg right, with trees catching any players trying to take the shortest route to the right. The left to right fairway often pushes good drives to the right also. It is difficult to see this green from back down the fairway.

Hole 12, Par 3 (165 m)

This par 3 requires a long carry from the tee to an elevated green. Out of bounds to the right and bunkers in front and left rear make this a very challenging hole. Depending on the pin position putting can also be quite difficult.

Hole 13, Par 4 (311 m)

Accuracy off the tee is essential, to have a clear second to the green on this tough dogleg left. A small bunker on the left helps protect this green.

Hole 14, Par 4 (321 m)

A large mahogany tree on the left of the fairway is the main obstacle on this par 4. A grass bunker to the right often catches stray second shots.

Hole 15, Par 4 (370 m)

Long par 4 with trouble left off the tee. Too far right though, and more timber comes into play. A long second shot needs to avoid the bunker front left of this undulating green.

Hole 16, Par 4 (304 m)

Short par 4 with out of bounds on the left. A bunker front left protects this sloping green.

Hole 17, Par 4 (248 m)

Another short hole, with the longer hitters going for the large green. The bunker, short left, often catches these drives and a grass bunker on the right can come into play.

Hole 18, Par 5 (435 m)

This par 5 requires an accurate drive down the right hand side of the fairway. Too far left and the ball can run down the hill into trouble. The narrowing fairway 100 metres from the green can catch some golfers, and the large left greenside bunker also protects this large rolling green.
