​Hole 1

The longest hole on the course to start the day. There is a pond on the right hand side with a canal across the middle of the fairway giving the option for players to lay up short of the canal or take the risk and try to carry the canal with their first swing of the day.



Hole 2

A downhill hole that effects club selection also check for wind direction before selecting your club. There is a creek over the back of the green which punishes any shots flying over the green.



Hole 3

The right side of the green needs to be avoided here as the steep incline leaves a difficult pitch up onto the putting surface.


Hole 4

A strong hole that needs to have the correct club selection due to the green being very shallow. Distance control is important on the tee shot. Missing to the right side will leave an easier pitch onto the putting surface.



Hole 5

A steep incline will catch any mishit tee shot rolling back away from the green leaving a delicate recovery shot. Club selection is important on this deceptive hole.



Hole 6

 A strong par three with a tricky bunker on the right-hand side which needs to be avoided. A swale on the left side of the green will also make it an interesting test to score your hole missing this green.



Hole 7

 An uphill hole that means you need to take one extra club to ensure the ball gets up onto the green and the bunker short of the green catches many approach shots. Check the pin location on this two-tier green as well as long putts can be tricky.



Hole 8

 Like the second hole but a little shorter. The bunker short on the right-hand side will catch any shots not struck precisely. Avoid going over the back of the green as a steep hill will see balls roll into the penalty area.




Hole 9

 A steep bunker on the right-hand side needs to be avoided as it leaves a tough shot to a smaller green. There is also a shallower bunker over the back-left corner to try and catch up overcompensating to avoid the front right sand trap.




Hole 10

A pond on the left-hand side and the canal running across the fairway means that a strategy needs to be implemented from the teeing ground to avoid these areas. This green runs a little slower than others on the rest of the course so adjust your speed of putt accordingly.




Hole 11

 The largest surface area of putting surface on this hole means that club selection is critical to avoid three-putting once on the green. The bunker on the right-hand side needs to be avoided at all costs as it is a deep bunker making it hard to stop the ball on the green with your recovery shot.



Hole 12

A steep uphill slope short of the green means that you need to right the club for your approach shot. Overcompensating with too much club will also introduce the out of bounds fence which needs to be avoided to prevent adding unnecessary penalty strokes to our score.




Hole 13

A narrow chute with overhanging branches means the tee shot needs to be hit well. Deep rough surrounding the left-hand bunker is also an area best to steer away from. An easier chip shot onto the green is from the right-hand side to leave shorter putts.





Hole 14

The ground slopes down toward the front right corner of the green which makes choice of club from the tee playing down the left-hand side will leave an easier shot to make your par or possibly pitch in for a birdie.





Hole 15

 An uphill par three with a deep bunker on the left-hand side. Landing in this sand trap will require a higher flighted shot so bunker technique is tested on this hole if the situation presents itself.



Hole 16

 The shortest length hole on the golf course and plays even shorter than the yardage being a downhill approach to the green. The best place to miss this green is short of putting surface as a steep bank will make it a harder recover shot for any shots that are missed left, right or over the back of the green.



Hole 17

 The most difficult hole on the golf course with a narrow approach missing the pond on the left-hand side and the overhanging branches of trees down the right-hand side. Check for wind direction on this hole as well as golf balls hit higher than tree level are often blown straight into the pond on the left-hand side of the green.



Hole 18

The final hole leaves a challenge for any approach shots missing the green with a gully on the right-hand side, a pond and steep bank to pitch up if the shot is missed left of the green. Leaving the ball short of the putting surface will leave the best place for your pitch onto the putting surface.
