Proʼs Tip: Gentle start but avoid the right side bunker and trees off tee. Longer hitters should aim for left half of fairway to give a great chance to go for the green in two.
Proʼs Tip: Always play to right half of green avoiding bunker and OOB left. Playing just short here is not a bad result as long can find the ditch
Proʼs Tip: A testing par 4 requiring two well struck shots to reach the green. The line for the brave is between the marker post and the bunker.
Proʼs Tip: Donʼt be fooled by this hole! Play it as a dog leg for a short, straight chip to green directly between guarding bunkers. Birdies / pars await this play. Take on the green and mound, trees, bunkers and hedge all come into play.
Proʼs Tip: Keep your drive down left half of fairway to open up angle for approach shot. Holding green can require some check spin – an alternative is to play short to left front of green, then chip and putt for your par.
Proʼs Tip: Pick your favourite club for straight hitting as ditch on left and stream on right. A drive down the left side will allow for sloping fairway. Par is always good here
Proʼs Tip: Birdie chance! Keep well to the left of the bunker and a well struck drive will leave a delicate shot to a sunken green. Donʼt be long with chip
Proʼs Tip: May be more club than you think. Hole is uphill and often into a prevailing wind that does not feel that strong at ground level.
Proʼs Tip: Beware getting blocked by conifers on left from tee. Best approach to green is from the left half of the fairway
Proʼs Tip: Drive between the mounds. In summer, with run on the ball, beware of overshooting the green on approach shot – a bunker at back of the green awaits.
Proʼs Tip: A drive down the left half of fairway sets up an easier approach to sloping green. Big hitters may find ditch coming into play off drive in summer.
Proʼs Tip: A well struck tee shot is required to reach top of hill. Play approach shot to right half of fairway to avoid going over bunker on third shot.
Proʼs Tip: A pond spans the approach to the green. Even a well struck tee shot can leave you in a dilemma – go for it or lay up? Study yardages and consider playing conditions
Proʼs Tip: Tough hole to make par. The fairway over the brow of the hill slopes to right so aim left of marker post off tee to hold fairway.
Proʼs Tip: Green slopes away from you and to right. A well struck shot needed to front, left hand side of green – then you require the touch of a surgeon!
Proʼs Tip: Drive to the left side of the fairway to open up green. A short second shot often plays longer than it looks
Proʼs Tip: McKenzie green so play ʻbottom tierʼ or ʻtop tierʼ as determined by flag position. In windy conditions, aiming to finish in the centre of green is percentage play
Pro’s Tip: Big hitters can take on the corner to give chance of getting home in two. Mere mortals should play three straight, conservative shots. Beware of well protected green surrounded by bunkers.
