Concord Golf Club

Concord Golf Club is one of Sydney's most prestigious golf clubs. Established 1899, the Club has hosted a number of championship golf tournaments including the Australian PGA, NSW Open and ANZ Championship.

Concord Golf Club is one of Sydney's most prestigious golf clubs. Established in 1899, the Club has hosted a number of championship golf tournaments including the Australian PGA, NSW Open and ANZ Championship.

The Australian PGA came to Concord in 1991 when the winner was Wayne Grady. In 1992 it was won by Craig Parry and in 1993 by Ian Baker-Finch. In recent years Peter Londard won the 2001 ANZ Championship at Concord and commented positively on the condition and quality of the golf course.

A ready water supply through the construction of three dams provide provide a good water supply for the greens and fairways. At some time or another all of the holes have been reconstructed and in 1996 the decision was taken to appoint a golf course architect, Ross Watson, to re-design the course.

His recommendations were accepted by the committee and subsequently $1,400,000 was approved by Members to proceed with the complete reconstruction of all the greens, bunkers and fairways and the reshaping of the dam on the 15th tee. This was started in 1996 and successfully completed leading to newer, better playing conditions and a better golf course which has seen our Australian golf course rating rise into the early 30's .

The Clubhouse offers a warm classic ambience, with timber features and Club traditional and historical decor and furnishings. Major renovations were complete in 2001 at a cost of $2.5 million.

The Club is located in close proximity to Homebush, the Olympic site, and as such is a convenient drive from the City.

Concord Golf Course Renovations

High-profile course architect Tom Doak and his team from the Renaissance Golf Design company has just completed a major project involving the modernising and upgrade of the 18-hole Concord layout.

Concord was be the first major redesign project Doak and his team have “tackled” in New South Wales.

The upgrade works were led by Renaissance’s senior design associate Brian Slawnik while Doak himself oversaw the shaping of all 18 greens at critical times during the construction process.

Concord has long figured in the top-rated courses in New South Wales in the biannual rankings, no doubt club members will be hoping this can edge it closer to the top of that tree.

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 292m

A classic opening hole that presents long hitters with the opportunity to drive the green. The left edge of the fairway bunker at 195 metres is the ideal line from the tee if choosing a more conservative play. The ideal landing area from the tee is 190 metres allowing for a short iron approach. Aim your approach to the right centre of the green. If you know your carry distance to the single metre then the back left pin is accessible.

2
Par 4, Length 348m

A slight dogleg right with a right to left sloping fairway. Take the trouble out of play by aiming to the very right of the mounds left of the fairway. Aim for a landing area at 220 metres that will be short of the left side trees. Centre of the green is an ideal target for an approach shot regardless of pin position. Missing the green to the right would be a challenge to the best of player's short game.

3
Par 4, Length 359m

A very demanding dogleg right hole with a premium on position. Choose a target tree on the rounding left side tree line that you know you cannot reach with your club of choice. The further you choose to hit your tee shot the tighter the landing area becomes. The conifer is a good line for most players thereby allowing for the left to right run on the fairway that slopes gently left to right. The challenge for a right- handed golfer is playing a draw to the green when the ball is below the level of the feet. Avoid missing the green on the left side.

4
Par 3, Length 152m

A well-guarded short hole with a centre tiered green. Missing the green left makes for a very difficult up and down. Choose enough club to get your ball to the back of the green. The carry over the left side bunkers is almost halfway up the green. Aim for the centre of the tier that the flagstick is positioned.

5
Par 4, Length 296m

A three shot par five for mortals! Tee shot run out distance varies depending on the line of choice however a finished tee shot distance of 220 metres is ideal. The second shot is best played with a fade around the dogleg. Centre green is a good target option as the green is well bunkered. Beware of the left green side bunker as the green slopes from left to right. Centre green is a good target.

6
Par 3, Length 175m

For the right-handed golfer this is the first chance to unleash the "power draw". Aim right side thereby avoiding left fairway bunkers. A well-designed tiered green presents a bunker challenge or chipping challenge depending on pin position. This green is very difficult to read the break of putts so survey the green well before reaching it.

7
Par 4, Length 369m

One of Concord Golf Club?s new holes, this Par 3 is a tough one. With a tee shot exceeding 200 metres in length, the green sitting above the tee and a deep green front to back; a Par here is a score to be proud of. Be sure to take enough club on this hole and be wary of the grass bunker hidden off to the left of the green.

8
Par 5, Length 476m

This Par 4 of moderate length is deceptively demanding. With the fairway flanked by trees on both sides, the hole windings from right to left with the fairway gently sloping the same direction finding the fairway can prove tricky. Accuracy should be the objective over distance off of the tee, with the best angle to the green being from the right side of the fairway. Any poorly struck second shots run the risk of finding the creek just before the green.

9
Par 4, Length 349m

One of the most difficult holes on the golf course. The actual finishing hole for major tournaments at Concord. The ideal line from the tee is toward the right hand fairway bunker. Ideally with a draw shape for a right handed golfer. Fairway bunkering on the left side is well placed at approximately 230 metres therefore placing a challenge on the tee shot. The uphill approach should favour more length, as the short green side bunkers are difficult.

10
Par 4, Length 371m

The newly created par 4 replaces the previous 9th and 10th par 3s to balance the course, 9 holes out and 9 holes in. This downhill dogleg to the right favours those with a natural fade, however those who can hit long with a draw can take on the tree line for a prime position in the middle of the fairway past the turn. The new green is well guarded with four bunkers adding to the difficulty. For those players looking to run the ball onto the green you need to be left.

11
Par 5, Length 463m

An excellent par 5 that presents an eagle opportunity for the low marker but requires pinpoint accuracy. The fairway bunker 40 metres short of the green is not visible unless the tee shot travels at least 240 metres. If deciding to lay up aim for 70 metres short of the green that will allow more spin on your approach shot. This is essential as the green slopes from front to back. Chipping from short of the green is extremely difficult therefore take enough club on your approach to reach middle back of the green. From there it will be an uphill putt.

12
Par 4, Length 377m

A straightaway drive between fairway bunkers however your aim should favour the left fairway bunker. The left hand bunker is easier to play from and opens up the back right pin position. If playing a long iron or wood for your second shot, the line should be to the left edge of the green. Short right of the green is not a good option so position your approach well left.

13
Par 4, Length 258m

The key on this hole is to be able to view the green with your second shot therefore take enough club from the tee to reach the dog leg. The right hand fairway bunker and the left hand grass bunker are not penal therefore worth the risk of an attacking tee shot. A conservative play from the tee can leave part of the green obscured by overhanging trees on the left hand side. Favour the right half of the green with your approach as the green slopes from right to left.

14
Par 3, Length 123m

Only a short hole however if you need more than an 8 iron to reach the green you must attempt a fade shot for more elevation and spin. This green will not be receptive to a low elevation shot. The putt across the green is very deceptive and often misread. Survey the green from 30 metres short.

15
Par 5, Length 477m

A time to unleash "the 30 metre extra" tee shot. If you don't succeed treat the hole as three-shot par five. Do not lay up too close to the green with your second shot as the approach to this green needs to be spinning. The back half of this green is not very receptive therefore the approach needs to be lofty. An eagle chance for long hitters however the second shot must be landing softly.

16
Par 3, Length 149m

A very good short hole with a shallow green that sits diagonally to the direction of the hole. This green design makes club selection difficult therefore a fade for a right handed golfer should be aimed left of centre. Putts from above the hole are as fast as anywhere on the golf course.

17
Par 4, Length 394m

The tee shot should be aimed at the left hand bunker unless you can carry your drive 250 metres. A drive of 250 metres will carry the right hand fairway bunker. Making a birdie from the left hand fairway bunker is possible. Alternatively, finishing in the right hand fairway bunker saving par would be your mind set. The bunker short left of the green makes approach shots appear shorter in distance therefore aim to hit the second shot to the middle back of the green.

18
Par 4, Length 366m

Unless your driver carry distance is 260 metres then stay left of the fairway centre. The fairway and green side bunkers await an errant fade for a right- handed golfer, however the green does demand a left to right shaped shot for the average golfer. If the flag is on the back level add 25 metres to your approach shot calculation. This is the most difficult green on the golf course and finishing on the wrong tier makes for a very difficult 2 putt.

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 399m

An impressive spacious tee-shot and approach to the green, this can lead one into a false sense of security. There is trouble bordering all around and the green is quite narrow. The opening hole at St Michaels is a good challenge.

2
Par 4, Length 317m

The 2nd is in complete contrast to the opening hole. A dog leg to the right with sweeping fairway over the hill down to a well bunkered green. Native trees and scrub amphitheatre this beautiful hole.

3
Par 3, Length 170m

The effect of hitting through a valley is what makes this par 3 aesthetically impressive. The elevated tee to a green sitting atop a steep hill, with views of the Eastern Suburbs peninsula. One can be distracted from a most challenging hole.

4
Par 4, Length 341m

The 4th tee is well above the fairway, with a clear view of the ocean behind and the hole ahead. A water hazard hugs the right side of the fairway and native bush on the south side. With a challenging putting surface, this short hole is a good test.

5
Par 3, Length 203m

The 5th is truly an outstanding par 3, with a chute like tee shot, over a sandy 140m carry, and challenging up and downs from both sides of a sloping green. A par on this hole is most rewarding.

6
Par 5, Length 497m

With elevated teeing area and view of the Pacific Ocean and headland, this short par 5 offers a most enjoyable experience, and a good chance for birdie or that first par.

7
Par 5, Length 476m

With back to back par 5's, this longer version goes in the opposite direction, and is highly influenced by the wind. With little to no trouble off the tee, the only true test is a narrow green atop a steep hill which is blind from the fairway. Whichever way the breeze blows, makes or breaks either the 6th or 7th.

8
Par 4, Length 398m

A classic hole, long in length, requiring a good tee shot and accurate approach. With surrounding mounding, hidden hazards and out of bounds south of green, this hole can be an absolute brute into the wind.

9
Par 4, Length 298m

A generous width of fairway and short in distance. This deep hole, generally assures you of your halfway drink going down easily. Avoid the green side bunkers and get ready for the challenging back nine.

10
Par 4, Length 375m

Another generous fairway, but lined both sides by trees, narrowing at approximately 230m from tee. A small sloping green, with bunkering set well away, this easy looking hole is rarely defeated.

11
Par 4, Length 373m

This double dog-leg sweeping from left to right off tee and right to left to green is a very impressive. Although generous in fairway, the blind tee-shot and surrounding native bush makes this hole very intimidating.

12
Par 3, Length 164m

The 12th Green is heavily bunkered with a strongly sloping putting surface, outstanding looking hole but very daunting. Relax and enjoy the challenge.

13
Par 5, Length 462m

This hole offers a narrow tee shot between a hazard on the left of fairway and tree lined on the south. There is an equally demanding narrow 2nd shot to a blind green, bunkered left and right. This hole is often influenced by wind but the view is to be enjoyed.

14
Par 4, Length 340m

A short hole with sandy rough and generous sweeping fairway. There are two small hills to negotiate before an awkward shaped green. A seemingly easy hole compared to the start of the back nine.

15
Par 3, Length 206m

The15th tee is an elevated position to a large sloping green surrounded by bunkers. The native bush land surrounds the green to create an impressive back drop.

16
Par 4, Length 379m

The 16th hole is played from an elevated tee over the infamous Moran's gully. Rumor has it Ball Manufacturer's Christmas bonus is assured. Due to this hole. Fairway sweeps from right to left with sloping green, Par this hole and you're a happy golfer.

17
Par 5, Length 481m

This hole offers the ultimate challenge, a long straight tee shot over the hill and go for the green amongst a stadium of native tree's and scrub, or play short of hill with safe club to get over for 2nd and approach green for 3rd.

18
Par 4, Length 387m

The 18th offers a last opportunity to test yourself, an impressive intimidating tee shot through a narrow tree-lined fairway with carry of 140 metre's off tee. A narrow long approach to a big green, with bunkering set away from green short left and right.

Playing Tips

1
Par 5, Length 411m

This relatively short opening par 5 offers a real birdie opportunity. It is reachable in two shots but beware the creek in front of the green. A large putting surface will test your nerve.

2
Par 4, Length 315m

A straightaway par 4 with severe mounding on the right to catch the sliced tee shot. The second shot is slightly uphill to a well trapped undulating green.

3
Par 4, Length 328m

Driving accuracy is essential. A downwind tee shot may require the strong hitter to lay up short of the water on the left. The green is well protected by the water sand traps short and to the right and hollows behind.

4
Par 3, Length 125m

This hole runs uphill and will play a little longer than it appears. Club selection is the key to the best birdie opportunities.

5
Par 4, Length 338m

Ideally the tee shot should be played to the left side of the fairway affording the best approach. Natural bushland surrounds the green punishing wayward second shots.

6
Par 3, Length 154m

The longest par 3 with a deceivingly deep green. This hole combining length with extensive bunkering will yield more bogies than pars.

7
Par 4, Length 347m

The majestic Clubhouse Tower comes into view providing the ideal line for your tee shot. From the middle of the fairway the greenside dangers are obvious, whilst the moderately undulating green will require a delicate putting touch.

8
Par 4, Length 322m

One of the more difficult tee shots at Terrey Hills. A particularly severe bunker on the right should be avoided at all costs. Play to the left centre of the green as any shot right will be penalised by deep gullies.

9
Par 5, Length 477m

For all but the longest hitters this is a true 3 shot par 5. The second shot should be positioned to provide the best angle to the green, guarded closely by water and bunkers.

10
Par 4, Length 343m

The back nine starts with a demanding par 4. The second shot should be strategically positioned to provide a safer angle to the green. Water comes into play down the entire left side of this challenging hole.

11
Par 4, Length 343m

A deceptively tough par 4 requiring a well struck tee shot to provide vision to a green surrounded by water and bunkers. Club selection is important as water beyond the green provides severe penalties.

12
Par 3, Length 122m

Not the longest par 3 at Terrey Hills, but certainly beautiful and testing, encompassing water, mounds and gullies. A courageous, accurate tee shot will be rewarded.

13
Par 4, Length 358m

A long par 4 that will command the respect of all players. Your tee shot should be played left of centre to avoid penal fairway bunkering. Follow this with a mid to long iron to a large deceptive green.

14
Par 5, Length 446m

A long par 5 which requires thought on every shot. If the hazards are avoided on the drive and second shot, think carefully about club selection to the well trapped undulating green.

15
Par 3, Length 145m

A huge bunker meanders some hundred metres along the right side of the fairway and curves around the end of the green. A par 3 of intimidating presence to test the nerves towards the finish of the round.

16
Par 5, Length 446m

A premium is placed on driving at this reachable par 5 and aggression may reward the longer hitters. A long, high second shot is called for to keep the ball on the putting surface. A less adventurous route is to favour the left side.

17
Par 4, Length 369m

A testing par 4 in anyone's language. Deep hollows on the left side should be avoided from the tee as they obscure visibility of the green. A lay-up second shot could be the wise option as water encroaches on the right hand side of the green.

18
Par 4, Length 327m

A par 4 of unique quality. A dogleg left where avoidance of the many hazards is essential. The second shot uphill will always play longer than it appears. The shallow green calls for precise club selection and execution.

The Lakes layout is regarded as an imposing championship venue. Wind, trees, marshes, bunkers, heavy rough and of course many water hazards are features of this historic course. Apart from the opening hole where there is a lake on the left and the eighth hole where there is a lake on the right, the front nine holes are relatively water free. However there are plenty of trees and bunkers to catch that miss hit shot.

The water is well in evidence on the homeward stretch with the picturesque innocent - looking lakes thirsting for miss hit golf balls. The Lakes demands patience and precision from the tee and deft second - shot accuracy to find the greens.

The Lakes, ranked 16th in Australia, is considered to be a classic mix of old fashioned and modern design - where as with most Sydney courses the wind can be a strong factor in determining how well you will score.

Length (m): 6315
Architect: Ogilvy Clayton Cocking Mead
Design Year: 1967
Top 100: 18

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 365m

The new first tee adjacent to the water level brings in the traps on the right hand side to penalize the long shot heading away from the water. As a general rule, the closer a golfer is willing to hit to the water, the better line they will have into the green. We recommend all golfers take this into account when making their club selection on the approach shot.

2
Par 4, Length 400m

The second hole has new bunkers added on the right hand side and green has been changed to reward players coming in from the left. Players who are able to carry the tier in the fairway will be left with a short iron to the green. Shorter drivers should keep their tee shot to the left. Players should also aim their approach shots to the left side of the green as it is designed to funnel balls to the right once they have landed.

3
Par 4, Length 444m

The tee has been moved back and across to ensure the second shot plays longer into a big green protected right and left by traps. Clever placement is required for your second/third shots and the green has a swale through the centre to ensure all long putts are tested.

4
Par 4, Length 339m

The new layout of this hole requires many golfers to lay up as close as possible to the sandy waste on either their first or second shot to provide the best opportunity to hit their next shot on to the green. Be aware that the 4th green slopes away from front to back. Approach shots that finish short left, will leave golfers a very difficult chip or bunker shot.

5
Par 4, Length 363m

While the tee shot on the 5th may appear narrow, there is actually considerable room to the left of the right fairway bunker. A tee shot in the centre to left of the fairway eliminates the danger areas of the hole and provides an excellent angle of approach into the challenging green. We also encourage you to choose a club that will allow you to fly the ball to the middle of the green to take the front bunkers out of play.

6
Par 4, Length 312m

The danger on this hole is the large sandy waste collection area on the left hand side of the fairway but there is considerably more room on the right hand side than it may appear from the tee. The green has a very narrow entrance and is flanked by two deep greenside bunkers. Pay close attention to your club selection on your approach shot. Any approach that finishes short or marginally off line will have a good chance of finding the difficult bunkers.

7
Par 3, Length 160m

This medium length par 3 plays uphill with only the back tier of the green visible. If you can hit the middle of the green and 2 putt you will be more than happy. The best place to miss the green and chip from is front left as there are deep bunkers protecting the right front and side of the green.

The green is long and narrow at the front widening out towards the back with chipping areas on the front, right and rear of the green

9
Par 3, Length 138m

This par 3 is quite exposed and during the warmer months will play into the prevailing N/E wind. The green is elevated and protected by a pot bunker at the front and a deep bunker on the right. The green is undulating and will prove a tough test especially on windy days.

10
Par 4, Length 314m

This short par 4 is a feature hole at The Lakes. Depending on the wind can play very differently. The tee shot is quite narrow with a fairway bunker positioned on the left approximately 220metres from the tee. A lateral water hazard protects the entire right side of the hole. The green is slightly elevated with a tier in the middle and is sits on an angle as you play the hole. The green is surrounded by bunkers front and back.

11
Par 5, Length 528m

This long dogleg par 5 plays left to right around a lake on the right hand side. The tee shot plays slightly uphill with waste area approximately 240 metres from the tee on the right side. Fairway bunkers on the right and left side protect the fairway for the second shot. The green is very large with a swale on the left side. The water lurks close at the front and to the right.

12
Par 4, Length 409m

This is one of the hardest holes on the back nine. It is a long par 4 with a gradual incline. The tee shot is protected by trees on the left and waste area on the right approximately 250 metres from the tee. The green is elevated and protected by greenside traps left and right.

13
Par 4, Length 288m

This short par 4 plays downhill, and the fairway slopes to the right towards a pond. The left side of the fairway will generally give you the flattest lie and best angle to play your second shot. The green is pear-shaped, very narrow at the front and widening out at the back. There are severe drop off areas at the front and sides of the green, and a bunker lurks at the back of the green.

14
Par 5, Length 502m

This short par 5 is one of the feature holes at The Lakes GC. There is a waste area on the right, while water and a fairway trap come into play on the left. Your second and third shots play over a lake to a massive green which has many levels to it. The green is protected by water at the front and bunkers to the back. Study the green closely and pay particular attention to the speed.

15
Par 3, Length 184m

The putting surface on this par 3 is not visible from the tee. The green slopes from front to back and is protected by bunkers on both sides. There is a ridge running through the middle of the green which funnels your golf ball to the left.

16
Par 4, Length 396m

This is a tough dogleg left to right par 4 and often plays into the wind from the tee. The lake approximately 240 - 250 metres from the back tee markers protects the middle and right side of the fairway. Bunkers surround the green on all sides.

The green is positioned close to the water on the left and is protected by a large bunker at the front right.

18

The New South Wales Golf Club

The NSW Golf Club is rated in the top 50 golf courses in the world. In fact, it is the only Sydney Course rated in the top 100 best golf courses listing. The character of the course is unique, a links style course set amongst the hills and valleys that hug the rugged Pacific Ocean coastline boasting magnificent ocean views as backdrop.

Regarded as one of the top golf courses in Australia and currently rated number 34 in the world, NSW is a wonderful combination of undulating fairways, beautiful scenic vistas and a recently refurbished clubhouse which is a magnificent combination of traditional architecture and five star comfort.

The NSW golf course is a links style championship course spectacularly located on the Pacific Ocean and on historic Botany Bay. Even when there is a gentle breeze prevailing the course will test the above average player with its tight fairways and testing greens.

When the wind blows it gets tough! Should you lose a ball in the rough then don't bother looking - just drop another ball and take your penalty.

This golf course and club are steeped in history. It is a well known historical fact that Captain Cook and his crew found their first drinking water in a natural spring below where the18th tee is located today.

In short, this is more than just a golf course - it is an unforgettable golf and natural experience. To play golf at NSW Golf Club is to play golf how the game was intended to be played - at the complete mercy of Mother Nature and the golfer's ability.

NSW Golf Club has also been compared to Pebble Beach. The golf course has definitely more and better ocean views than Pebble Beach. To play at NSW Golf Club is a " must " for all discerning purist golfers.

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 293m

An easy drive and pitch par 4. The green is new and quite undulating. On the drive beware the bunkers to the right.

2
Par 3, Length 184m

A testing par 3 from the back tees. If you miss the green it is better to do so short than long. As a general rule this applies to all holes at New South Wales.

3
Par 4, Length 380m

A hidden dogleg which starts with a blind tee shot through a chute between the tee tree. Depending on how much of the dog leg is cut off you can have anything from a 4 iron to a wedge into this elevated green. Very steep drop over the green. Par a good score.

4
Par 4, Length 391m

Off the tee aim for the large hump to the right hand side of the fairway. The approach shot needs to cross a ridge to reach the hourglass-shaped green guarded by a bunker and 2 grassy hollows.

5
Par 5, Length 468m

A blind hole. Aim for the ridge 230 metres away from the tee. There is not much fairway left to land the second shot, so accuracy is the key here. The green slopes to the back with 2 sandtraps left and front right.

6
Par 3, Length 185m

A classic par 3. Depending on the wind, it can be anything from a long iron to a wedge. If still, take one more club as it is slightly uphill and the green slopes towards you and the sea.

7
Par 4, Length 376m

A straightaway uphill par four, but the shot is very demanding with Tea tree either side of the fairway capable of severely punishing any stray shots. Depending on the wind for the long hitters, it might be just a wedge or a nine iron with a southerly, but into a nor-easter it's a longish iron or even a wood. A very steep and difficult green and many a four-putt has been made during tournaments.

8
Par 5, Length 505m

Your line is over the dip in the hill in the distance. If your second shot clears this dip then it is a pitch to a well bunkered green. Ideally, your second shot should be slightly left of the dip as this improves the angle of approach.

9
Par 4, Length 340m

The driving line is further to the right than you might think. There is a clump of bushes (2 or 3 feet high) about 70 metres from the back tees. Go straight over that small clump and you will be set up in the middle of the fairway to attack the pin.

10
Par 4, Length 359m

A mid length par 4 with a fairly tight driving area followed by a medium length approach to a long green. Take note of where the pin is as the club selection will vary. Beware the bunkers on the right of the green!

11
Par 3, Length 149m

Another scenic par 3 which looks over the whole course. Wind is a big factor here and generally you are playing into the wind so take enough club.

12
Par 5, Length 482m

A hittable par 5. The landing area on the drive is wide. The longer hitters will be able to hit these green in two. But beware of the bunkers, they are deceptively difficult.

13
Par 4, Length 375m

A dog leg left par 4. After a well hit drive (depending on the wind) a mid to short iron is all which is left to a green which slopes back to front. Again below the hole is the preferred option.

14
Par 4, Length 323m

A wonderful par 4. Not too long but very spectacular. Long hitters can chew off a fair amount of the dog leg and be left with a short approach to a green perched high on top of a hill. Do not be long on your approach!

15
Par 4, Length 372m

A famous difficult par four which is ranked as the hardest hole on the course's stroke index. An uphill tee shot through a narrow chute needs to go about 220m to reach the top of the hill and so offer a view of the green. The tee shot is extremely difficult into a wind, but once you reach the corner there is little trouble near the green.

16
Par 4, Length 403m

A tough par 4 which dog legs left at about the 260m mark. Aim further right with your drive or else your second shot may need to be hit over trees. The approach requires more club than you may think.

17
Par 3, Length 153m

A deceptive par 3. The wind is a key factor here and although it may seem calm on the tee special notice should be taken of the flagstick and how the wind may be affecting it. Do not miss the green to the right as a very daunting approach awaits.

18
Par 5, Length 507m

Avoid trees to the right and further away on the left. From here a wood will carry the hollow on the right some 130 metres away from the green.
