course tips

  • HOLE 1

    Short par 4 with out of bounds along left side. Bunker at back right of green.

  • HOLE 2

    Long, downhill par 4. Best line is down right hand side - too far left and you can be blocked out by tall trees.

  • HOLE 3

    Short, uphill par 4. Drive up left side leaves a short iron in. Bunker front right. The severely sloping green can make putting tricky.

  • HOLE 4

    Driver and long iron or fairway wood to a long green on this downhill par 4. Bunker front right of green.

  • HOLE 5

    Drive and a short iron to this par 4. Bunkers front and left. Approach can feed down the slope from the right.

  • HOLE 6

    A medium par 4 with a sloping fairway - drive right of centre for best approach. Bunkers short left and pin-high right of this large green.

  • HOLE 7

    Straightaway short par 3. Bank on left will feed ball down onto green. Through the back is not recommended.

  • HOLE 8

    Short but uphill par 5 with out of bounds all along the right-hand side. Long hitters can go for the green, but 2 good shots will leave a short iron to the elevated green.

  • HOLE 9

    Long hitters can go for this short par 4, but beware the small dam which can catch balls hit short and left. Avoid being through the back of the small, sloping green.

  • HOLE 10

    Straightaway par 3 up a gentle rise. Beware the subtle slopes on the green.

  • HOLE 11

    A spectacular par 4 with a view out across North West Bay - aim for the yachts to start the hole. Your second shot is all downhill, so the hole plays shorter than the card suggests. An approach to the left side of the green is recommended - the ball tends to move to the right due to the contours.

  • HOLE 12

    This par 4 is the toughest hole on the course. Drive slightly right of centre to set up the best angle for approach. The green is not easy to hold - a par here is a good result.

  • HOLE 13

    An uphill par 4 to a deep green, where the flag position can make up to 2 clubs difference for the approach. There is a lateral hazard all along the right, and another one on the left at driving distance but not visible from the tee.

  • HOLE 14

    A challenging par 3 bunkered on both right and left. Club selection is crucial to avoid falling short, or being left with a very long putt.

  • HOLE 15

    Long par 5 curving first to the right then back to the left. Best to drive to centre right of fairway, then hug the right-hand side with the second shot, as the fairway slopes down to left for the landing area. The left-hand side of the green is guarded by a large bunker.

  • HOLE 16

    A shortish par 4 featuring a drive through a gap in trees and a sharp dogleg to the left. The green is protected by a deep bunker at the front right plus a long curving bunker around the back. A short shot will catch a swale in front of the green and roll towards the front bunker.

  • HOLE 17

    A fairly straightforward short par 4. There is a bunker to left of the green, and a fairway bunker on the top side of the fairway.

  • HOLE 18

    A short uphill par 5 to a large flat green shouldn't be that hard, but the large dam on the left is a big factor. Drive up the right hand side and keep the second shot to the right for a short / mid iron to the green. Long hitters can be tempted to go at the green, but many a player has left their ball in the water. Out of bounds to the left side and behind the green.
