The tee shot looks difficult with the trees sticking out but there is much more space on the left than it looks. Keep your drive down the left side as the fairway slopes to the right to left so we can avoid the fairway bunkers.
This is a short hole that only needs a 200-220 yard tee shot to leave enough space to play your 2nd shot. If you get to close to the green the trees and the bunker come into play. From the white or yellow tees you need to aim the right of the tree with target it on it, from the reds you can aim straight for the target.
A simple looking par 3 but with the only bit of water at the end of tee and 3 greenside bunkers it can play harder than it looks. There is plenty of space beyond the green so you would rather be long than short.
You want to avoid the pine tree in the middle of the fairway. If you can keep it down the left it gives a better chance of reaching the green in 2, especially for the longer hitters. If you miss it the tree to the right there is a chance your 2nd shot could be blocked out or the ball could end up in the fairway bunker.
A slight dogleg left with a well protected green. There is more space to the right than there looks with out of bounds and fairways bunkers down the right but this is the ideal plae to play the 2nd. Being down the left isn’t disastrous but it will make the 2nd shot a lot harder. It is often forgotten this hole is uphill so don’t forget to take this into account.
Picking the correct tee shot is key here, and knowing where the pin is can play big part in this. If the pin is towards the back of the green a longer tee shot can be useful to help get close to the pin but with out of bounds down the right and bunkers down the left it is a tricky shot. If the pin is in the middle or at the front you want a shorter tee shot to leave a fuller approach. The green is the most undulating on the course and runs from front to back so if you get too close and the pin is at the front it can be a very tough shot.
A very simple short par 4 with the tee shots often bouncing into the middle of the fairway especially in the summer. This green also runs from front to back and can be quite firm in the summer so higher approaches are needed to get the ball to stop near the pin.
The yardage may be the shortest par 3 but it is without a doubt the hardest of the 4. A narrow tee shot up a steep bank to long narrow green that has some big slopes on it. Walking a way with a 4 on this hole can be quite an achievement at times.
Rated as the hardest hole on the course but really it’s just a long par 4. A very wide fairway and even though you start slightly up hill its all down hill from the fairway bunker. It’s a narrow entrance into the green if you are hitting woods into it so it may be best to lay up if you want to avoid being in the either of the greenside bunkers.
A nice simple par 3 with bunkers at either side. It can often play into the wind so make sure you have plenty of club to reach this pretty big green.
Rated as the 2nd hardest hole on the course but usually plays the hardest. A tough tee shot needs to be played as the hole is a sharp dogleg left but the fairway slopes from left to right. The small fairway bunker isn’t the worse place to be from the tee. The hole plays downhill from there on a green that slopes front to back so you may need to land this short to get it to stop on the green.
The big hitters have a huge advantage here being able to hit the ball over the hollow to the right. If you can’t hit it over the hollow make sure you aim right up the left hand side to give you a flatter lie for the 2nd shot.
The hole looks a little bit longer but being down hill it plays very shot. The key here is not to go left or long. Anything that is short or to the right often finds its way onto the green.
Keeping your drive up the left is key on this sloping fairway that leads into 3 fairway bunkers or if it misses those down into the trees. There is a greenside bunker on the right so if the pin is at the back make sure you take plenty of club to fly the bunker.
A dogleg left par 5 that is all uphill and has a sloping fairway from left to right. You want to make you start the ball up the left but you don’t want it to stay there as it will leave a much harder shot as the slope is steeper on the left hand side. The hole plays much longer than it is and has a two tier green so if the pin is on the back make sure you are taking plenty of club.
A tough looking tee shot that looks like you have to go through the trees but ideally you want to go over the left hand tress as the fairway slopes to the right so going through the gap can leave you in trouble. There is also a big dip at the end of the fairway and down the to green so your tee shot doesn’t need to be more than 240 yards to give you the best approach shot. The green is protected on the right from the deepest bunker on the course so don’t miss it right.
A very similar hole to the 3rd but the fairway slopes from right to left from 200 yards in. if you cant reach the green in 2 it may be better to lay up between 120 -150 yards to give you a flatter stance for your 3rd. You will also have less chance of having to go over the large bunker just short and left of the green.
