1st Hole

1

A generous opening fairway but avoid going into the trees on the right. Do not hit your approach on the right as the surround fall sharply away. The green is relatively flat so three putting should be unlikely

2nd Hole

A challenging uphill tee shot require accuracy as does your approach which must be short of the hole. The green is very tricky and three putts are not uncommon. Par here is a good effort.

A relatively straight forward Par 4 where birdie is possible and, or eagle putt for the longer hitters. Any tee shot into the trees on the right is trouble and there s water on the left. Take care not to hit your approach through the green to a hidden bunker or dam.

5th Hole

A well hit drive on this dog leg, left hole will set up an uphill approach to an undulating green. A drive into the trees on the left would result in an almost certain bogey or worse, as will leaving your approach in the hidden bunker on the right

7th Hole

Don’t be fooled with this short par 3. Anything left off the tee will be a bogey or worse. Through the green is trouble as well as the ground fall sharply away at the back. Take care with the pace and breaks on the green.

8th Hole

8

Par is good, birdie is great on this long par where accuracy is also important. Your drive and second shot must split the fairway on this dog leg left hole. There is tree trouble on both sides as well as the “S” shaped fairway bunker on the right. A bunker at the front and grass hollow protect the green.

A dog leg par 4 is one of he hardest on the course. A difficult tee shot with trees lining both sides of the fairway and out of bounds on the left. A difficult approach to a larger elevated green by bunkers. Putting is tricky so take care. Par is always a good score.

A long Par 5  with a generous wide fairway, however take care with the out of bounds on the right. A relatively simple second shot and approach to a large green. Take care as the pace and undulations can be deceptive. Expect Par here but careful.

13th Hole

It is easy to run up a double bogey here. Your tee shot requires accuracy to avoid the trees on the right and the water hazard on the left which tends to attract balls. A relatively easy approach shot to a green protected by  bunkers on the left and mounds on the right.

14th Hole

A Par 4 sleeper. Appears easy but looks can be deceiving. The fairway slopes down  towards the right so it easy for the ball to right into the trees. Entry into the trees either side of the fairway or the open drain awaiting long hitters will result in a bogey.

A longish Par 3  which has been know to give nightmares. You tee shots requires supreme accuracy to a large elevated green protected by bunkers on the right and rough on the left. Do not relax on the green as three puts on this difficult to read green are common. Par here is a very good score.
