Course Playing Tips

Hole 1, Par 4 (302 m)
A straightforward hole to start your round. An iron from the tee will leave a simple short iron for your approach. The longer hitters may want to take on the bunkers.

Hole 2, Par 5 (451 m)
Up a rise and dogleg left to a challenging green with undulations and plenty of turn depending on the pin position.

Hole 3, Par 4 (340 m)
A warning to right-handers ? a slice from the tee and a watery grave awaits. A ball guided down the left-hand-side will set you up for the perfect approach.

Hole 4, Par 4 (380 m)
Trouble left and right of the tee leaves only one option. After placing your ball with precision, a second shot to a tight green protected by the bunker short left awaits.

Hole 5, Par 3 (140 m)
One of the easier holes on the course ? unless you?re above the hole when the greens are running fast. A short to mid-iron (depending on wind) to a large green with bunkers on the right.

Hole 6, Par 4 (350 m)
What appears to be an easy tee shot to a wide fairway is quite deceptive. The fairway which slopes left to a large area of rough and tea tree, allows only a small landing area up the right-hand-side. Your second is to a small green but is quite open.

Hole 7, Par 3 (175 m)
One of the most picturesque holes on the course with panoramic views of the bay from both tee and green. A large green protected by bunkers on the right and grassy undulations on the left ? a real challenge on a day when the wind blows on this exposed hole.

Hole 8, Par 5 (348 m)
A straightforward hole which is reachable in two for the long-hitter ? aim up the right-hand-side of the fairway to avoid trouble.

Hole 9, Par 4 (371 m)
After negotiating the strong dogleg right which is protected by large trees, you are still faced with a challenging shot up a steep slope to the relatively small green.

Hole 10, Par 3 (164 m)
After guiding your ball through the gums that surround the tee, a fairly large and receptive green awaits your ball. Short and right you have a bunker to contend with. Long and you face a very difficult return up a steep slope to a fast green that slopes away.

Hole 11, Par 4 (405 m)
The longest par four on the course. A straight, wide fairway with a large elongated green to finish. Easy to reach in a north westerly ? nearly impossible in an easterly.

Hole 12, Par 4 (346 m)
A reasonably straightforward hole. The right-hander needs to avoid a slice off the tee to avoid a watery fate. For the second shot, short right a bunker awaits, long and left another chance to test your fate with the water.

Hole 13, Par 4 (380 m)
One of Mornington?s signature holes. Either lay up short of the fairway bunker for a mid to long-iron approach or take on the corner. The undulating green is protected by a series of bunkers, short left and right, and long right.

Hole 14, Par 5 (510 m)
The longest hole on the course. A snaking dogleg right then left with a series of bunkers on the right-hand-side of the fairway. Fire your third shot straight at Melbourne (on a clear day) to a small green to finish

Hole 15, Par 4 (342 m)
The second hole of ?Amen Corner? which includes fourteen through seventeen. This hole traverses the cliff top with an undulating fairway to a protected green. Degree of difficulty is ten with a south westerly blowing.

Hole 16, Par 3 (129 m)
Known as the ?volcano? for obvious reasons when you stand on the tee. A relatively short shot to a large green should not prove too much of a challenge if you can put the bunkers and gully in front out of your mind. Difficulty increases with wind on this exposed hole.

Hole 17, Par 4 (318 m)
The start of the homeward stretch. A straight tee shot will set you up nicely for your approach to the tiered green.

Hole 18, Par 5 (464 m)
A slight dogleg right leads you back to a grandstand finish at the clubhouse. If you can keep your ball straight the only trouble is the bunker short left of the green, or if you hit it long on a Saturday afternoon, the gallery will have plenty of advice!
