This hole presents golfers with a 151m carry over a large lake to a green backdropped by the course's signature pandanus palms.

However for all major events the course proves a more challenging test. With the tees back and the pins tricky suddenly friendly becomes mean and the course proves that it can bite back.

Playing Tips

1
Par 5, Length 516m

There is more space to the right off the tee than you might think, so aim middle or right of middle off the tee. The second shot should then be played to the left side of the fairway. A player of average length cannot reach the fairway bunkers and will be left with a middle to short iron to the green.

2
Par 4, Length 368m

The tee shot needs to be played right of middle whilst avoiding the fairway bunkers on the right. The club chosen for the second shot will depend on the pin position on this long sloping green, and with green-side bunkers on the right, it is safer to hit to the left side of the green.

3
Par 4, Length 347m

The left side is preferable off the tee as it gives you a clear shot at the green for your second shot. Anything right will leave you with a blind second shot. A second shot played to the left side of the green gives you an easier chance to make par, due to the green-side bunkers on the right.

4
Par 3, Length 162m

This hole features a long green, so if the pin is to the back make sure you have enough club and take note of any wind. The right side is the easier pitch if you miss the green.

5
Par 4, Length 388m

Keep your tee shot down the left side unless you are a long hitter as this side of the fairway offers you a better chance of a clear second shot to the green. Steep slopes around the green call for an accurate approach.

6
Par 4, Length 394m

An extremely testing par 4. An accurately judged tee shot short of the creek allows a better chance of reaching the green in two. The safer option is to lay up short of the bunkers and rely on getting up and down for par.

7
Par 3, Length 182m

Our 'Signature Hole' and one of the prettiest, and most demanding par 3's anywhere. Although missing the green to the left is the safe option, the grassy hollows and sloping green call for an accurate pitch.

8
Par 5, Length 488m

Aim centre or right centre of the fairway off the tee to give you a clearer second shot down the fairway staying slightly right of the middle. This leaves you with a short iron into a long green.

9
Par 4, Length 383m

Position is important on this medium length par 4, and there is more room to the right off the tee than you might think. Make sure your second shot has enough distance to reach the various pin placements as this is a very long green.

10
Par 5, Length 506m

After driving short of the bunkers, be sure to hit far enough left with your second shot.The fairway slopes toward the lake, which guards the right hand side of the fairway all the way to the green.

11
Par 4, Length 387m

Unless you hit a good drive, it may be advisable to lay up with your second. If your tee shot is long enough to almost reach the bunker then you have an opportunity to play to the left side of the green. If not, a short iron will leave you a short pitch in.

12
Par 3, Length 173m

Take note of the pin position before selecting your club. If you leave yourself a long putt it is very difficult to judge the line, so make sure you have enough club for your tee shot.

13
Par 4, Length 411m

The longest par 4, which usually plays into a prevailing wind.The left side of the fairway is the most direct and shortest way to the green. The second shot is played uphill to an elevated green. If you feel you cannot carry the bunkers short of the green with your second, lay up and rely on a pitch and putt for par.

14
Par 4, Length 331m

You have two choices. Lay up with a mid iron leaving yourself with a mid to long iron second depending on the pin position, or risk the driver to a narrow fairway leaving yourself a short iron in to a green split by a deep hollow.

15
Par 4, Length 367m

It is best to drive the ball down the centre right of the fairway. Long hitters could attempt to carry the fairway bunker on the left. Green-side bunkers are on the left, so it is safer to approach the right side of the green.

16
Par 3, Length 149m

The most difficult pin placement here is to the middle back where a high approach is needed to avoid bunkers both in front and behind this very narrow section of the green.

17
Par 4, Length 368m

Off the tee, take a club that leaves you just short of the fairway bunkers on the left leaving you with a middle to short iron into the long green. Missing the green to the right leaves you with an easier pitch shot.

18
Par 5, Length 474m

A player of average length can safely play down the left hand side of the fairway, leaving a middle to long iron lay up short of the creek. Long hitters have the option of driving down the right side, taking on the carry, giving a chance to reach the green in two shots.
