- Hole Details
PRO’S TIP: First drive of the day needs to be an accurate one. The ideal tee shot is placed down the centre of the fairway avoiding the ditch leaving a mid to short iron in to the green. This green is very deceptive and slopes quite a lot, best to leave an uphill putt.
PRO’S TIP: This hole plays uphill so the tee shot will play longer than expected, an accurate drive will be needed here to avoid the fairway bunker on the right. This green slopes from left to right so favour the left hand side of the green with your approach shot and the ball should feed towards the centre of the green, you don’t want to be past the flag on this green!
PRO’S TIP: This hole is a dog-leg left, an accurate drive over or favouring the right side of the fairway bunker will open up the green for your approach shot. There is a small dip in front of the green so make sure you have enough club to carry the green.
PRO’S TIP: This hole is all about position off the tee, many golfers get caught out by the bunker and trees on the right attempting to go at the green. The tee shot should be positioned left of the bunker opening up the narrow green protected by bunkers on both sides. It is important to get the ball on the right level as this green undulates quite a lot back to front.
PRO’S TIP: This hole is a par 5 with a double dog-leg and strategically placed bunkers to catch out wayward tee shots. Longer hitters don’t go at the green in two unless you can see the green from your tee shot as the ditch across the front of green will catch any approach that comes up short.
PRO’S TIP: A fairly short downhill par 3, any shot hit short or right will make par very difficult, favour the left side of the green as anything short left will bounce up on to the green.
PRO’S TIP: This hole plays slightly longer than the yardage suggests so make sure you have club as the hole is heavily guarded by rough and bunkers on the left side.
PRO’S TIP: A tricky dog-leg left, this hole has a severe slope from right to left. The tee shot needs to be placed up the right side of the fairway and the ball will feed back to the centre. A tricky approach shot will need to be accurate with bunkers right and left with a ditch across the back of the green.
PRO’S TIP: With out of bounds down the right and trees down the left, strategically placed ditches this tee shot is fraught with danger. Miss all of theses and hole is plain sailing good birdie chance!
This is a straight-forward par 3 with the green protected with bunkers right, left and at the back of the green.
PRO’S TIP: A tough par 4 dog-leg left, requiring an accurate drive favouring the right side of the fairway to open up the green for the approach shot to a small green guarded by two greenside bunkers. Take a four on here and you should be pleased.
PRO’S TIP: A challenging par 3, with a very narrow green. This green is very undulating; if you find the opposite side of the green to the flag you will be very pleased with a two putt.
PRO’S TIP: A very tight fairway, a good tee shot will avoid the fairway bunker on the left, a slightly off line tee shot on this hole and you will be struggling to make four. This hole is about position not distance. If in play off the tee this hole boasts a good birdie chance.
PRO’S TIP: A dog-leg right a real risk and reward hole. The longer hitters can take the corner on here and go straight at the green creating a good birdie chance however with bunkers short and water behind the green there is little room for a wayward approach shot.
A daunting tee shot with out of bounds up the left and ditch down the right a straight drive is crucial. The ideal approach shot will come in from the left side as the green slopes from left to right this green can catch out many golfers especially if you’re long of the pin in two.
PRO’S TIP: An uphill par five. A tight tee shot with out of bounds down the left side. A draw will be needed off the tee with a driver but be careful not to over do it as the fairway slopes right to left feeding the ball down towards the out of bounds. Get a good drive away and you should be able to reach or get close in two, this green slopes severely from back to front make sure you leave your approach shot short of the flag to avoid a three putt disaster.
PRO’S TIP: A down hill par 4 with out of bounds down the left and right a straight shot is a must. Longer hitters need to be aware of the ditch running across the fairway. This green slopes front to back so be careful not to go through the green.
