Course Fly-through

Hole by Hole Guide

hole1

A straight tee shot is required here so that you do not have to take on the bunkers that stand sentry at the green. Care must be taken with the approach shot as the green has slopes that make it difficult to get the ball close.

hole2

Long hitters can get home in two here –  their tee shot needs to follow the line of the fairwayand you can hit it further right than it appears from the tee. For mortals, play the drive to the left side, and the second in the middle for the best angle of approach to this narrow and raised green.

hole3

Club selection is the key to this hole. The tee itself is often sheltered from the prevailing breeze which is a deciding factor when selecting the shot to play.

hole4

It is essential to hit your drive in the centre or left side of this fairway – not only to avoid the trees and O.O.B, but also to give you the best approach to this elevated undulating green.

hole5

A testing par three where the destructive shot is to go left. So with the green sloping right to left the percentage shot is just to the right of the centre of the green.

hole6

Avoid the bunkers from the tee, and then the approach is to a pin that you cannot see the base of. It is worth having a look before playing your second to this narrow green.

hole7

A drive favouring the left will give the best line into the pin. The green is long so take notice where the pin is and hit an extra club if it is at the back.

hole8

A good drive is needed here to get home in two. Keep the drive towards the left side of the fairway for the best line in and avoid the bunker on the right side that catches the faded approach.

hole9

A really tough par four that needs a good drive and an equally good second. As the fairway slopes right to left aim your drive just right of centre. The second shot again should be just on the rightside of the green to allow for the slope. A four here is always a good score – good luck!

hole10

A really tough par three. The long green has a tier and is slightyly higher than the tee – so take one more club than you think, especially if the pin is at the back.

hole11

The drive should favour the left side of the fairway to give the best line into the pin. The second shot is slightly downhill, so a ball landed short will run on.

hole12

Club selection is the key to this challenging short hole. Take care to see where the pin is situated on the green. Anything short will roll back to the front of the green – anything long will be helped by the bank a the back of the green.

hole13

Drive as close as you dare to the bunker to give the best line in. The approach shot is down hill, so consider club selection carefully.

hole14

Although a short par four this hole needs full concentration. Your drive should be on the left side of the fairway to give you the length of the green to pitch to. The approach has to be precise and allow for the pin if it is at the back.

hole15

A straightforward drive will leave a pitch to a raised green. The pitch to the green tends to run on more than you expect as the green slopes from back to front.

hole16

The drive needs to be aimed to the right side of the fairway as the slope will take it left. Your second shot is over a stream to a fairway that slopes from right to left so allow for the ball running a little to the left, leaving a pitch to a long uphill green.

hole17

Unless you are a long hitter aim the ball to the left of the fairway. Then you have the best angle of approach to this well guarded green. Take one more than you think, especially if the pin is at the back.

hole18

A drive favouring the left side gives you the best approach to this narrow green to avoid the bunkers that guard the front. The long green slopes from front to back making it difficult to stop the ball unless played perfectly.
