Hole Professional Tips
1 Stroke 1 - Open your round with a 3-Wood, hitting slightly to the right side of the fairway. As there is a gentle downhill slope your ball will have the advantage of the roll depending on the condition of the ground.|Stroke 2 - Use a Wedge to take you up to the pin that still lies below.
2 Stroke 1 - As the hole is gently uphill use a Driver off the tee and aim for the right side of the fairway. Stroke 2 - A 3-Wood will bring you a little short of the green. When lining up for the stroke aim lightly to the left of the green.|Stroke 3 - A Pitching Wedge will place you close to the hole whilst too much firmness in the shot will be compensated by the ridge lining the back of the green.
3 Stroke 1 - Use a 3-Wood aiming to the right side of the fairway towards the protruding group of trees.|Stroke 2 - A firm 6-Iron will place you on the green.
4 Stroke 1 - This challenging par-3 hole requires a 5-Iron. To carry the water aim to the left of the pine ree that is in your line with you and the green. The accuracy and distance are all important as a bunker lies across its entrance.
5 Stroke1 - This par-5 hole leading back to the clubhouse requires a firm Driver off the tee straight up the fairway and avoiding the far right side as it is 'Out of Bounds'.|Stroke 2 - Use a 5-Wood and try not to land short on the left side as this position will leave you with a very challenging next shot.|Stroke 3 - A Pitching Wedge will take you up to the hole.
6 Stroke 1 - For this par-3 hole that lies invitingly below you a 3-Iron is recommended. Avoid the right side of the green due to the slope.
7 Stroke 1 - A Driver will place you well up and aim for the left side of the fairway to be in a good position for the next shot.|Stroke 2 - Use a 7-Iron and aim for the left side of the centre of the green as there is slope to the right.
8 Stroke 1 - The Driver will place you well up in the fairway on this par-4 dogleg. Ideally, aim slightly to the right side of the fairway.|Stroke 2 - A 3-Iron to the left of the centre of the green should be the correct approach shot to this gentle uphill slope.
9 Stroke 1 - Use a 5-Wood aiming to the left of the bunker on the right side of the fairway.|Stroke 2 - Select a 9-Iron and aim to the left of centre of the green taking into consideration the position of the flag.
10 Stroke 1 - This challenging par-3 hole requires a 5-Iron basically to the centre of the green. Club selection and quality of shot is imperative as there is lots of trouble on all sides of the green.
11 Stroke 1 - A 3-Wood aimed straight between the two fairway bunkers will place you well for the approach shot. The landing area is narrow due to these bunkers.|Stroke 2 - Use a 4-Iron to take you to the left of the centre of the green.
12 Stroke 1 - In order to play this par-5 dogleg you need a good drive off the tee with a Driver. Aim to cut the trees and the protruding bank on the right side of the fairway.|Stroke 2 - As it is uphill from here you will need a firm 5-Wood avoiding the bunker on the right.|Stroke 3 - Select an 8-Iron and aim to the middle of the green.
13 Stroke 1 - As this is a dogleg to the right use a 5-Wood to take you over the trees protruding on the right side of the fairway.|Stroke 2 - The 6-Iron will take you to the centre of the green and as near to the pin as possible!
14 Stroke 1 - This hole is a dogleg to the left and requires a straight drive with a Driver aimed between the two bunkers on the fairway.|Stroke 2 - A 3-Wood should bring you to a position that is a little short of the green.|Stroke 3 - Use a Pitching Wedge to lift you up and on to the green.
15 Stroke 1 - The hole can be deceptive as the green is very short in length so club selection is very important - suggest a 6-Iron, depending on the prevailing wind.
16 Stroke 1 - This hole is the longest par-5 on the course with a curving dogleg to the right. Use your Driver to carry the trees on the right hand side of the fairway.|Stroke 2 - Use a 5-Wood to carry a further group of pine trees again on the same right hand side.|Stroke 3 - With a 9-Iron let your shot avoid the actual bunker in front to the left but placing the ball somewhere close. With this position you will have a clear shot towards the green.
17 Stroke 1 - Use your Driver and avoid the bunkers on each side of the fairway.|Stroke 2 - A 4-Iron should take you to the middle of the generous green.
18 Stroke 1 - As this is an open fairway a straight shot with a 3-Wood to the middle will achieve the ideal position.|Stroke 2 - Use a 7-Iron to pitch you onto the green followed by a good putt that will take you back into the clubhouse for a rewarding drink!
