Hole 1 - Par 4                    Drone video Hole 1

Men - 338m
Ladies - 338m

The ideal tee shot here is a fade, to aviod playing over a small hazard and around a tree.  Slice it though, and your approach will have to carry the bunker at the front right of the green.  Hit it straight and you risk negotiating trees on your approach.

Hole 2 - Par 3                    Drone Video Hole 2

Men - 160m
Ladies - 131m

This par 3 is hitting over a dam to the newest green on the course.  Accuracy is a must, unless you leave it short dead centre.  Bunkers left and right on the front, and a tricky chip from any where else makes this a difficult up and down.  Only very badly hit tee shots get what they deserve and end up in the water!

Hole 3 - Par 4                    Drone Video Hole 3

Mens - 354m
Ladies - 354m

A dog leg right means another fade will give you the ideal approach shot.  The 2 tiered green is protected by 3 bunkers.  The best place to miss this green is on the right.
course hole 3 12
 

Hole 4 - Par 4                    Drone Video Hole 4

hole4Mens - 285m
Ladies - 285m


A deceptively tricky short par 4.  The green is small and firm, making it difficult to stop the ball on it.  Choosing the right length club from the tee to give you a full swing on an approach shot is always an option.  Big hitters need to be careful of out of bounds on the left.
 
 

Hole 5 - Par 3                    Drone Video Hole 5

Mens - 130m
Ladies - 130m

A fairly straight forward par 3, provided you keep it straight, as there are trees left and out of bounds on the right.  There is a small false front on the undulating green.
course hole 5 14
 

Hole 6 - Par 4                    Drone Video Hole 6

Mens - 404m
Ladies - 344m

Easily the toughest hole on the course.  Requires a solid straight drive, and a middle to long iron appraoch, for all but the big hitters.  The green is narrow and protected by a bunker on the right.
course hole 6 15
 

Hole 7 - Par 5                    Drone Video Hole 7

Mens - 440m
Ladies - 368m

A short par 5 with a dog leg right.  Big hitters can take on the trees on the corner, and if successful give themselves a chance at eagle with a short iron second shot.  The rest of us can go for glory on the second shot, or sensibly, lay up and play for par.

Hole 8 - Par 5                    Drone Video Hole 8

Mens - 488m
Ladies - 433m

The longest hole on the course, is a dog leg left.  A straight drive opening up the angle for the second shot is the ideal drive, although some have been known to stray left and take a shortcut back down 7.  The shortest path to the hole is a straight line after all.
course hole 8 17
 

Hole 9 - Par 4                    Drone Video Hole 9

Mens - 320m
Ladies - 258m

This short par 4 requires a straight drive because of the narrow shute from the tee to fairway.  The green is shallow, with 3 bunkers protecting it, one front left and two on the right.  Pin placement usually allows for the glory shot, or a safety first approach.

Hole 10 - Par 4

Ladies - 268m

A Straight tee shot here to aviod playing over a small hazard and around a tree.  Slice it though,  and your approach will have to carry the bunker at the front right of the green.  Hit it straight and you risk negotiating trees on your approach.

Hole 11 - Par 3

Mens - 125m
Ladies - 125m

Again accuracy is the key on this green.  The distance is in between clubs for many, making it tricky to negotiate.

Hole 12 - Par 4

Mens - 354m
Ladies - 354m

A dog leg right means another fade will give you the ideal approach shot.  The 2 tiered green is protected by 3 bunkers.  The best place to miss this green is on the right.

Easily the toughest hole on the course.  Requires a solid straight drive, and a middle to long iron appraoch, for all but the big hitters.  The green is narrow and protected by a bunker on the right.
course hole 6 15

Hole 16 - Par 5Hole 7.300200.002

Mens - 473m
Ladies - 430m

Plays similar to 7, although taking on the corner isn't an option.  The ideal tee shot is on the left to open up the angle to the green.

Hole 17 - Par 5

Mens - 488m
Ladies - 433m

The longest hole on the course, is a dog leg left.  A straight drive opening up the angle for the second shot is the ideal drive, although some have been known to stray left and take a shortcut back down 7.  The shortest path to the hole is a straight line after all.
course hole 8 17

Hole 18 - Par 4

Mens - 335m
Ladies - 320m

A short dog leg left par 4 to finish.  The ideal tee shot is a draw.  A straight drive risks an approach hindered by trees.  This should be a gimmie for a skilled left hander!
