Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 380m

A challenging opening hole. A medium length par 4 into a valley with a gentle dog leg to the left. The tee shot should focus on accuracy with hazards and deep bunkers to the left of the fairway. After a good tee shot to the upside, centre-right of the fairway you will be left with a medium length approach to a well guarded, elevated green. The green is two-tiered and slopes from back to front. Tip - do not leave your approach shot short or the ball will funnel down into the valley a long way short of the green.

2
Par 4, Length 402m

A fairly long hole upa slight hill, but a very attractive one. The drive must be threaded between trees to a shallow undulating valley. From there the fairway swings to the left before curving back to the green and the right hand side of the hole is guarded by a wild gully and a group of very tall trees half way between the landing area and the green. These trees block the direct approach to the green from some parts of the fairway and largely determine the strategy of the hole. A long drive to the right enables a brave second across the wilderness area directly to the green. The safer second shot is to the left, from where the front half of the green is easily accessible but the back is guarded by a bunker on the left and the gully on the right.

3
Par 4, Length 369m

Very different to the 2nd, as the drive is played across a shallow valley uphill to a ridge, from where the fairway plunges steeply downhill before rising again to a green at about the same level as the landing area. The green is slanted from right to left and bunkered heavily on both sides, and favours a tee shot played long to the righ hand side. The whole hillside at the green is scattered with bunkers. As a result, the 2nd shot looks spectacular and shold be exciting to play.

4
Par 5, Length 545m

A very dramatic hole, but quite a difficult one. The tees are very elevated and the drive carries to a fairway in a shallow valley which curves from right to left around a number of fierce looking bunkers carved into the ridge on the direct line of a long drive. The bravest line is directly across these bunkers. At the foot of the hill there is a break in the fairway and the hole crosses a shallow gully before rising steeply up the hill to the right to a green which is best approached from the left side of the fairway. The beginning of the green is pitched steeply in the Augusta manner and the back right pinspot will be guarded by bunkers both front and back making it very difficult to reach. The bunkers on the front right are among the most dramatic on the course.

5
Par 3, Length 163m

A medium length par 3 which is played steeply downhill from a series of tees set into the bush rock. The left side of the hole is flanked by natural bush and a steep gully. The easiest approach is from the right where the slope helps the ball onto the front of the green. The ridge which frames the right hand bunker extends into the green, making access to the back right pinspot very difficult if the tee shot is missed to the right. The difficulty of this hole very much depends on the pin location as the front right section of the green is easy to hit. There is a steep drop-off on the back left of the green and this is most definitely not the place to go.

6
Par 4, Length 394m

This beatiful par 4 is played slightly downhill in a steep raving, totally isolated in the natural bush. Just past the landing area the hole doglegs to the left around some large ironbarks and then swings to the right around the edge of a wetland which cuts diagonally across the front right of the green. The fairway then slopes down towards the green, making a running shot possible from this side and favouring a drive placed long and left on the fairway. A draw is the best tee shot and a fade the best approach. Possum Creek and the surrounding landscape forms the very picturesque backdrop to the green.

7
Par 3, Length 196m

A long 1-shot hole played a little uphill from a series of tees which curve to the right. The green is angled from left ot right with deep bunkers along the right side. Another bunker is located 20 metres short of the green on the left, and the best approach to the green is across this bunker ? perhaps with a running shot. A grass swale runs the length of the green at the rear and gradually gets deeper towards the back right. Escape from this swale will be easy to some pin locations, but difficult to others because of the downhill slope in the green.

8
Par 5, Length 526m

One of the most appealing holes on the course, the 8th is a long uphill par 5 played through a very steep gorge. This fairway twists severely and continuously up the hole and the inside of many of the curves is guarded by large trees ? which makes the choice of both line and distance very important. The drive favours a draw played over the corner of a ridge on the left side and the 2nd favours a fade to the undulating landing area and a raised green guarded on the right by bunkers and a deep swale. This valley hole is atractive but narrow and is something of a survival test.

9
Par 4, Length 320m

A very short but demanding uphill par 4 played from tees set in the bottom of a steep slope. The drive crosses a small lake and plays severely uphill to a landing area which curves to left and is guarded by a series of bunkers along the left side. The hole looks frighteningly narrow from the tee, but opens up at about 150 metres, where the fairway becomes wide. The short second is played to a small green which slopes slightly away. It is protected on the front and the left by bunkers and on the right by a ridge which extends into the green before rolling over into a hollow which gradually deepens along the right side of the green. Chipping from this hollow will be tricky because the green slopes away from it. The best shots is probably a running one from the left side of the fairway which takes advantage of the slope to the right before curling onto the green. The green itself slopes from right to left and will be difficult to approach from the extreme right of the fairway ? from where it is partly blind.

10
Par 4, Length 350m

Another short par 4, this time from a slightly elevated tee to a valley, before sweeping steeply uphill to a green guarded on both sides by some of the most appealing bunkers which extend down the right side of the fairway towards the landing area. A very pretty hole where the difficulty lies largely in the narrowness of the second shot and the shape of the green, which is severely 2 tiered and requires an accurate shot to the back section.

11
Par 4, Length 357m

The 3rd shot par 4 in a row, but very different from 9 and 10. In this case the drive is played from elevated tees downhill and across a ridge to a fairway which then swings to the right and a little downhill to a green which is set into a lake and guarded on the front right by a wetland. The right side of the fairway is dominated by a huge, wildly shaped bunker short of the landing area. Once again the hole is played through a corridor of the natural bush and if the drive is played to far to the left the second shot is partly blocked, at least to some pinspots. The emphasis is on picking both correct distance and direction for the drive. The large green is also guarded on the left by a bunker which leads downhill to pinspots in the middle and back of the green making access to these very difficult from the bunker or the left side of the fairway.

12
Par 4, Length 325m

Another shorthole, this time steeply uphill for the entire length of the hole and a slight dogleg to the left. A series of fairway bunkers to the right and a rolling fairway favour a long drive to the right to get the best line of approach to a green which is severely bunkered on the front left. The green is also undulating and the back pinspots are difficult to get to. The right hand side is guarded by rolling hollows which form part of the fairway.

13
Par 5, Length 550m

A very long par 5 but steeply downhill and will not play as long as it?s measured length. It?s also one of the prettiest holes on the course and a very interesting one. The elevated tee shot is played to a very narrow fairway in a steep gully which rolls and twists and effectively separates drives at differenct lengths. The corner of the dogleg is guarded on the right side by a bunker and once the fairway turns to the left it sweeps steeply downhill over a wildly shaped fairway to a green set in the side of the ridge and guarded by a sweries of bunkers leading in for the last 50-60 metres. The green is very small and must not be missed left into the deep bunkers.The right side of the green slopes upwards and can be used to run balls back onto the green.

14
Par 3, Length 149m

This hole is played across a natural watercourse to a green in a ridge which is slanted from right to left and is guarded on both sides by bunkers. The surface of the green is quite undulating and the back pinspot and middle left pinspot will be difficult to reach, while those on the right hand side will be considerably easier. The hole is surrounded by attractive bush which forms part of the natural floodway and will not be disturbed.

15
Par 4, Length 402m

This is a very appealing hole played along Possum Creek adjacent to the National Park and once again surrounded by natural bushland. In some ways it offers relief from the previous holes because the fairway is very wide. However the hole doglegs sharply to the right and the drive is best played as long and close to the right side as possible. The green is set at the foot of a slope of natural bush and hard against Possum Creek, making it an attractive but difficult target unless the drive has been played long and right. A short drive to the left leaves a semi ? blind shot to the green.

16
Par 3, Length 178m

The trees at the 16th are located in the bush adjacent to the creek and the hole is played across the corner of a wetland to a green perched on a slight hill and slanted from front left to back right. The left side of the green is guarded by fierce looking bunkers which disappear into the wetland and the green rolls uphill to the right, with the front right being protected by another fierce bunker. A very large and moderately undulating green completes the picture.

17
Par 5, Length 474m

This reachable par 5 begins with a demanding uphill drive through a narrow opening in the forest from trees located on the edge of a creek. A roll in the fairway sweeps steeply uphill at the length of a good drive, and the landing area is bunkered short on the right and long on the left. The hole then falls slightly downhill to a green located in a natural amphitheatre and framed on the right by a wetland and a series of bunkers which rise from the wetland to the edge of the green. An accurate long term drive creates the chance to go for the green in 2, but the second is a risky shot. The lay-up short is relatively easy to a wide fairway.

18
Par 4, Length 379m

An interesting par 4 which sweeps uphill to the left and will play longer than its measured length because of the slope. The drive is played across a gully and an undulalting fairway to a large bunker on the right corner of the landing area before sweeping uphill to a wildly undulating green protected by a large number of traumatic bunkers. These are placed partly to dictate the difficulty of the shot and partly for dramatic effect. All of the useable pinspots on the green are on the left adjacent to the bunkers, while the right side is undulating and sweeps downhill to the fairway. It?s best to miss to the right but the chipping from this area will be particulary delicate. Demanding shots all round on the finishing hole.

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 373m

A driver is suitable here, hit left centre of fairway. Approach the green from left to stay clear of large greenside bunker on right.

2
Par 5, Length 478m

A good drive backed up with a strong fairway wood right centre of the fairway (watch the bunker!) sets a good third shot approach to all pin placements on a large green.

3
Par 3, Length 145m

Correct club selection is important here as green has bunkers front and back. If you miss green, short left is your best option.

4
Par 4, Length 355m

Your drive to right centre of the fairway will avoid a group of fairway bunkers on left and open up the green. Club selection on approach shot is important and is normally one more than it looks.

5
Par 5, Length 481m

After reaching the fairway, the second shot should be aimed to the left hand side of the fairway to set up a short iron to the narrow green. Aim away from the deep greenside bunker.

6
Par 3, Length 152m

Hit enough club to carry front greenside bunker. Front left is a safe option.

7
Par 4, Length 332m

Must hit your drive left centre of fairway to stay clear of right fairway bunker. A high approach shot is required to stop the ball on this plateau green. Avoid the left hand greenside bunker.

8
Par 4, Length 324m

A drive between the centre and right hand bunkers will open up the green and take the water carry out of play. Club selection for the shot to the green is important as it is well bunkered front right and rear.

9
Par 4, Length 350m

There is ample fairway to the left hand side which will avoid bunkers and leave a mid to long iron to this large green, which slopes back to front.

10
Par 4, Length 370m

A strong drive right centre of fairway ensures you don’t flirt with the water, however, this does provide a more difficult shot to the green. The green is well bunkered front right and back left.

11
Par 5, Length 471m

A long drive right centre of fairway will leave you in good position for options. The safe approach is to lay-up right side of fairway to take the left side fairway bunkers out of play. Wind direction determines the difficulty of this hole.

12
Par 4, Length 378m

A courageous drive left centre of fairway will leave you in a good position to attack the flag. Your approach shot has to be very accurate with water cutting into green on right hand side.

13
Par 4, Length 384m

A difficult par 4 which requires a strong drive to the middle of the fairway, followed by a long iron approach. Take note of the fairway bunker to the right and the extensive greenside bunkers.

14

This feature hole will leave you with many options. Ensure club selection suits the pin placement and wind direction. Best of luck!

15
Par 4, Length 374m

A well hit drive down the centre of fairway (don’t be right!) will leave you with your best approach. An extensively bunkered green front left and back right will test your approach skills.

16
Par 5, Length 471m

Hit centre left with your driver to set up options for your approach. Safe option is to hit second shot between left side fairway bunker and centre fairway bunker which opens up green for a pitch approach.

17

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 341m

The first hole is an Ode to joy, with a wide fairway and no bunkers to worry about. Nor is the green so fiercely guarded. Yet it has subtlety that is deceptive. It is advisable to travel down the left side which offers a better chance of approaching the green without bother. Coming at it from the right-hand side might present some difficulty, depending on the position of the flag.

2
Par 5, Length 501m

Now begins the examination, the road test, because this is a hole only the mighty can reach in two, because the green is raised and not all that large. There is no way around its difficulty as you must be straight, and long. Bunkers to the right and left and further a tree or two. Patience though will pay dividends. Five will be well earned.

3
Par 3, Length 193m

Here is one of the best par three holes anywhere. The bunkers are deep and imposing and the getting of the green in one shot, is an accomplishment to boast of. Beware of the deceptive early bunkers, they are well short of the green. But between them and the target is a safe reception. To be short is not so foolish.

4
Par 4, Length 402m

This can be a problem par four, as the obstacles ahead are many and to be wild here is certain disaster. Tread carefully. even shortening down from the tee, to keep out of danger. From the halfway point it is defenceless and simple.

5
Par 3, Length 140m

This is the "Pulpit" from which one can look around and down to trouble of all kinds. For a hole so short, the green is necessarily small and some pinpoint accuracy is required. If your confidence is low, play left and short. Three can be had from there.

6
Par 4, Length 372m

This is a change of direction and strength, for here is a powerfull par four. There is a serious trial of a tee shot with bunkers straight ahead, but out of range of most. A small bunker at the front of the green challenges the second shot with steep sloping sides to the rest of the green. Again it is no sin to be playing short. There is not trouble there.

7
Par 4, Length 351m

This is what might be called a "drive and pitch" hole, but that depends on the wind. The fairway bottlenecks around the 280 metre range, so that its hardly worth the risk. The green is a ridge of no real depth, but putting is possible from out and about.

8
Par 5, Length 502m

A hole for men not boys. A par five with plenty of action. There are 8 bunkers along this hole, the first pair being an inspiration from the Principal's Nose at St Andrew's. Once past these it is advisable to proceed down the left side and ignore the green untill you get within close range. Those further bunkers are designed to cause trouble for the audatious.

9
Par 4, Length 368m

Here is a picture all round, with the beautiful clubhouse as a backdrop. Par fours don't come any more adventurous than this one. For the long drivers there is a challenge from the tee to squeeze between bunkers, so it is better to go warily. The second shot has to be good to make ready for putting. No apologies for difficulty. A par is a capital score.

10
Par 4, Length 369m

Keep left where there is a vast space and the passage peaceful. Just one bunker at the green to avoid, but be warned it is a demon! Putting is enjoyably flat. No borrows needed.

11
Par 5, Length 511m

This is a hole of ridges and length. Yet all the troubles are there to see. Nothing of consequence is hidden, so hit forward with confidence over bunkers and rough. There is a wide area waiting ahead. Indeed the anti-area is generous in width, from which to make one's pitch-approach. The green is another flat one. Make the most of it!

12
Par 4, Length 351m

A short par four, but made especially difficult by the fairway bunkering which is a minefield! There are two hidden bunkers along the right-hand line, so keep left and there should be no problem. The short approach is to a two level green. There are some interesting small undulations on both sides.

13
Par 4, Length 389m

Now the going gets tough. A par four with lots of danger. There is a reward for driving past the fairway bunkers on the left, but consider if it is worth the risk. If you play short from the tee, the second shot is a real tester! The bunkers and the green will look you right in the eye. Wear a four proudly.

14
Par 3, Length 192m

A deceptive par three with lots of generous space around the green. Yet the green is a small target tilted right to left. It is possible to putt up from the area to the right of the green but the chances of down-in-one are slim indeed. If you miss the green, miss short left, or not at all!

15
Par 4, Length 410m

This may be the most difficult of all the holes depending on the wind. There is plenty of length. The fairway is bunkered right and mostly left, but the real test comes with the second shot. The green is set in a dell beyond a ridge and it sits up like a table top. This hole puts everyone to the severest test, so don't be disappointed with a five, fours are rare.

16
Par 4, Length 320m

A temptation to drive near the green. But the penalty for missing the tiny gap is heavy. Best play along the right-hand route and take on the pitch to the green from a distance out. Keep out of the greenside pot too, it is a deep devil!

17
Par 3, Length 230m

Your breath may be taken away, and the wind may be into your teeth but the spectacular vista is worth it. From the back tee, most players cannot reach the green into a wind. So it is advisable to consider playing this hole as a par four instead of a three. There is a small fairway to the short right area, from where it is a simple pitch to the green. Whatever befalls you, this is an experience in courage or folly. You decide.

18
Par 5, Length 515m

What a view. A long journey "home", with plenty to see and avoid. Keep right and you'll find no trouble, and at the end there is a mall green surrounded by bunkers and a hollow out front. This is the terminus and it is hoped you'll not be disappointed.
