Hole-By-Hole:

Hole 1 359m Par 4
The fairway is trapped both right and left, but the landing area is very generous. The smart way to play this opening hole is to play safe to the centre of the fairway, then a short iron to a generous green.

Hole 2 144m Par 3
A beautiful short par 3. Many players are deceived by the bunkers across the front and will play one club short. The green is divided into two sections by a strong ridge running parallel to the line of play through the centre of the green.

Hole 3 302m Par 4
A very challenging golf hole. Players feeling courageous can go for the green in one. However the ideal tee shot will carry across the corner of the creek to a generous landing area short of the green. A short wedge to the green and two putts is all that is required for a par.

Hole 4 395m Par 4
A very strong par 4. Accuracy is required off the tee to the narrow fairway through the trees. Bunkers short right and deep grassy hollows short left of the green will put a premium on the long iron approach shot.

Hole 5 513m Par 5
A good tee shot over the right side bunker is essential to have any chance of getting home for two. Then you have the option of laying up short of the creek or carrying the creek to a landing area just short of the green. The green is quite heavily contoured and guarded by a large bunker on the right side approach.

Hole 6 186m Par 3
From the back tee, a long accurate iron is required to play through a narrow opening amongst the trees, across the creek to the green. The left side pin placement will be very difficult as it is guarded both front and rear by bunkers.

Hole 7 346m Par 4
Only measure 346 metres from the back tees but being uphill and with a narrow driving area, this par 4 will test all levels of golf. For the best approach, attack the pin from the left side fairway.

Hole 8 411m Par 4
One of the strongest golf holes on the course. A tee shot over the left side fairway traps will leave the ideal approach to the green. Players aiming away from these traps and landing on the right side fairway will be faced with a very difficult long, uphill approach to an angled green guarded by hazards.

Hole 9 545m Par 5
Take on the inside left bunker and land to the left side fairway. From there, play a very long shot over the hazards to the green, or play short of the fairway bunkers to a layup area just short of the green. The green may be large but the contours and greenside traps will test all approaches.

Hole 10 371m Par 4
The ideal tee shot should take on the left side bunkers. Take care when approaching the back left pin position as the green slopes away steeply off the back.

Hole 11 521m Par 5
A good drive to the right side fairway will give you the choice of either laying up short of the wetland or playing long towards the end of the fairway at the second landing area. A pinpoint accurate approach is required to a raised green surrounded by deep bunkers.

Hole 12 309m Par 4
Play a long drive to the right side fairway. The green has a gentle mound in the centre that clearly divides the green into three distinct pin positions. These tricky contours and the greenside traps will ensure that this golf hole will play with more difficulty than it looks.

Hole 13 356m Par 4
A hole that places a premium on the accuracy of the drive. The landing area is heavily guarded with bunkers on both sides, short and beyond the landing zone. A good drive will be rewarded with a short iron approach to a well guarded green.

Hole 14 179m Par 3
A testing par 3 across a gully to a green situated on a ridge. Even though the green is quite large, accuracy will be required to hit one of the three pin positions.

Hole 15 525m Par 5
A long and testing 525 metre par 5 carved uphill through the remnant forest. The real test will be on accuracy as the adjoining timber will swallow up any errant shot.

Hole 16 417m Par 4
Probably the most difficult golf hole on the course. It is very long and with water on the right for almost the full length of the golf hole. The green is guarded to the right by a bunker and to the left by a large tree.

Hole 17 163m Par 3
Water to the left and bunkers to the front and back makes this 163 metre par 3 will be a very strong test of golf to players of all levels. A gentle ridge running through the green from front to back will place an even higher premium on the tee shot.

Hole 18 402m Par 4
The 18th hole is a great way to finish the round. The tee shot must play long and to the left side of the fairway adjacent to the water. From here a long accurate iron is required to the lakeside green.
