OPEN 7 DAYS – ALL WELCOME PH 5331 4400
Our beautifully manicured 18 hole championship course
was designed by golfing legend Peter Thompson.
It is a demanding and challenging layout set to test professional and club golfers alike. It provides a superb contrast with wide sweeping fairways, strategically placed bunkers, occasional water to add a splash of variety and undulating large greens.
These features all combine to form a fabulous landscape of golfing pleasure.
MEN’S 370 METRES Par 4
LADIES 346 METRES Par 4
Strong opening hole where the drive must avoid the trees on the left. Plenty of room on the right for the shorter hitters. Second shot to an open flat green with plenty of opportunity to get up and down if the second shot doesn’t make the putting surface.
MEN’S 305 METRES Par 4
LADIES 289 METRES Par 4
Short Par 4 with trees on both sides guarding the tee shot. Fairway opens up for a generous landing area. Short approach to an undulating green that slopes from back to the front. Second shots that are above the hole often lead to 3 putts.
MEN’S 165 METRES Par 3
LADIES 110 METRES Par 3
The most picturesque hole on the course. Men have to hit over a small pond and between large pine trees to a green guarded by 3 bunkers. There is an opening on the left side to run the tee shot onto the putting surface. Do not be over the back as the chip shot then has to played over rough and mounds to a small green slopping from back to front.
MEN’S 342 METRES Par 4
LADIES 296 METRES Par 4
A drive through a narrow chute of trees to a fairway that slopes slightly to the left. The second shot is to a narrow double-tiered elevated green guarded by bunkers front and back on the left hand side.
MEN’S 315 METRES Par 4
LADIES 257 METRES Par 4
A short Par 4 with a dog-leg around a tree plantation for the men and OOB on the left. A generous landing to set up a second shot to an elevated green with a bunker on the right hand side. A short iron second shot not positioned in the middle of the green can often run off the left hand side of the green resulting in a challenging chip up the slope.
MEN’S 445 METRES Par 5
LADIES 382 METRES Par 5
The start of a series of holes referred to as “amen corner”. A short Par 5 with water on the right and a pine plantation on the left. Longer hitters can often reach this green in 2 if the drive is carefully positioned on this fairway. Any approach shot from the right hand side of the fairway has to be negotiated to avoid a deep greenside bunker which guards a narrow green. Best to approach from the left hand side to allow a clear shot to an often difficult pin placement.
MENS 380 METERS Par 4
LADIES 365 METERS Par 5
The start of arguably the most difficult 6 hole stretch in the district. With water both sides of a wide fairway the drive on this hole must be positioned well to allow a long second shot to a green protected by a large bunker on the left hand side. Drive down the left hand side of the fairway allows plenty of room but a more difficult approach shot. Drive down the right hand side runs the risk of running into the water hazard which is difficult to see but an easier approach which has to be played over water. Par is a great score for all golfers.
MEN’S 366 METRES Par 4
LADIES 306 METRES Par 4
A dog-leg left around a water hazard where the longer hitters can attempt to cut the corner but run the risk of running through the fairway into another water hazard. Depending on wind direction a driver or long iron is required to get to the corner followed by a mid to long iron approach to an elevated green which punishes any shot that is not in the centre of the green. A green side bunker on the left hand side provides a challenging recovery shot.
MENS 326 METERS Par 4
LADIES 261 METERS Par 4
A shortish Par 4 that appears to offer a bit of relief after the last 2 holes and to complete the front nine, but be wary. A slight dog leg left around a small plantation that often attracts the drive as golfers attempt to avoid the water hazard running the entire length of the hole on the right hand side. A short iron approach to green that has a subtle slope to the front. Out of bounds is on left to punish the wild shot.
