hole-1a

A gentle opening mid length par 4. Try to favour the right side of the fairway as it slopes from right to left. This should give you a good view of green which is guarded by two bunkers at the front.

hole-2a

No need for driver on this short par four. It’s all about finding the fairway off this tee. A good tee shot will put you in position to attack this slightly elevated green but beware of the fall off to the left.

hole-3a

A nice mid length par four. Again try to favour the right side off the tee to avoid being blocked out by the trees up the left. A deceptive second shot awaits over the grass bunker some 20 yards short of the green. Take an extra club as the bank at the back can act as a backstop.

hole-4a

The 4th is a short uphill par 4. From the back tee keep it up the left side. Again with the second shot take the change in elevation to the green into account. You may need an extra club to get to the middle of this tricky green which slopes off on all sides.

hole-5a

The par 3s are particularly strong and this is the first one. A long hole needing plenty of club to reach it. The green is protected by two bunkers to the left and a grass bunker short. Avoid these to give you the best chance of making par.

hole-6a

A straightforward, relatively short par 5. The tee shot is key. Keep the tee shot up the right side as there is more trouble left. A straight second shot should put us in range of the green. The green has trouble on either side and slopes from back to front so try not to leave yourself above the hole.

hole-7a

A very demanding dogleg par 4. A good, straight tee shot required to allow you to go for this green in two. If you are unsure a good layup short of the water is the best way to avoid a big number. Again the green slopes from back to front so keep the ball below the hole if possible.

hole-8a

The second of the par 5’s and a sterner test than the first. This hole is a double dogleg, first right to left and then left to right so play it that way as this is a genuine three shotter. Keeping the tee shot up the right side of the fairway and your second shot up the left half will give you the best view of the hole. The green is protected by a bunker to the right and a severe fall off to the front and left so take care with your approach.

9a

The second of the par 3’s and again a tough one. Usually the ball kicks from the left so favour this side. The green slopes from front to back so just short of the green can sometimes be the easiest place from where to make 3. Par is a real good score here.

10a

Probably the nicest driving hole on the course. The elevated tee allows you a great view of the hole. The longer hitters do not need driver as this brings the water into play. A good tee shot up the left side of the fairway gives you the best look at the green which is protected by a bunker on either side.

11a

Decision time. A very reachable par 4 for the longer hitters but beware as anything left of this green could end up out of bounds. The conservative play on this hole is a tee shot of 150 yards to leave you a short shot over the hazard to a gently sloping green protected by two bunkers.

12a

The last of the par 5’s and again another genuine three shotter. The big tree down the middle is your line off the tee and another good straight shot should leave you in range with your third shot. The approach shot to this green is one of the trickiest on the course as there are three levels to this green so club selection is vital. The green is protected by a bunker short right but also avoid going big or left of this green.

13a

Another fairly short par 4 from an elevated tee. Finding the fairway is imperative to give you a good look at this green. The green has two tiers so pay attention to which one the flag is on. The green is protected by a bunker short right but avoid going big on this hole as over the green here is not good.

14a

The shortest of the par 3’s but don’t let that fool you. There is plenty of trouble if you get complacent. Anything left of this green is liable to end up out of bounds so a solid straight tee shot is required. The green itself slopes from back to front and there is a fall off to the right. The best birdie chance of the par 3’s but also plenty of trouble if you’re not paying attention.

15a

A nice par 4 dogleg right to left. No need for driver here for the longer hitters as this brings the hazard running across the fairway into play. Hit your tee shot up the right side of the fairway for the best view of the green. The approach shot here always plays longer than it looks due to the substantial change in elevation so take an extra club. The green is very tricky so pay attention particularly if you end up above the hole.

16a

The last of the par 3’s and again a really strong one. Out of bounds left, long and right so a good straight tee shot required. The green slopes off on all sides so it is a tough green to hit. There is a bunker on either side waiting to catch the wayward shot. Just short of the green with your tee shot can give you the best chance of getting an up and down 3. Par is a good score here.

17a

The longest par 4 on the course. Try to favour the right side of the fairway on this right to left dogleg hole. A good long tee shot will give you an opportunity of reaching the green. Anything else and you’re playing for position. The green sits slightly higher than the fairway and there are no bunkers. Several ridges in the green make it tricky to get the ball close or indeed hole a lengthy putt. Par here is a great score.

shot at the right hand side of the clubhouse. A good tee shot sets you up to approach this bowl shaped green. The slight change in elevation makes the second shot deceiving so play the yardage and go for the middle of the green. The green slopes towards the middle from the front, the left and the back which could feed your ball towards the flag.
