Hole Professional Tips
1 Missing the fairway traps sets up an uphill pitch requiring good length judgment.
2 Another testing drive to set up an approach shot from the angle of the dogleg. Favour the right side with your second shot.
3 A chance for a strong tee shot downhill. Still requires a good touch on the high flighted second shot.
4 One of the world's great par-5 holes. Lots of ways to play it but all basically need straight measured shots.
5 Choose your club and make a positive good swing. Not for the nervous!
6 A well positioned tee shot to the corner of the left hand dogleg leaves an iron shot to reach the green.
7 A testing and picturesque par-3 that requires a carrying shot to reach the green.
8 A draw shot round the dogleg or a lay up level with the fairway bunkers sets up a testing pitch shot.
9 Look to see the direction of the wind because the carry over the trees needs the wind from behind. The second shot is deceptive to a long green.
10 A sharp dogleg right requiring a precise drive and then an accurate mid-iron.
11 Make a good carrying strike as it is better to be long than short.
12 Reachable in two with the right wind. A testing green to hit with any club.
13 A deceptive short-iron when you make a good tee shot.
14 Can be reached in two, and if not, try approaching the green from left to right.
15 Great downhill par-3. A good strike saves the player from a sandy fate!
16 The bunkers and trees on the right of the fairway are to be avoided. Uphill short-iron plays long.
17 Another test of shot making or more time on the beach!
18 A true par-5, anything long and straight works on all three shots and will see you safely home.
