OUT Course Information

HOLE 1 Par 4 / HDCP 3

hole1 explanation

Course Guide

A stiff opening hole that climbs gently uphill from the tee and has a pronounced dog-leg to the right. A good drive left of center should open up the green, though the shorter hitters may be blocked out by the tree that marks the corner of the dog-leg. Another sold hit is required to reach the green which is deceptively narrow at the entrance and bunkered on the left. A good hole to par.

HOLE 2 Par 4 / HDCP 9

hole2 explanation

Course Guide

A classic short 'two-shot' hole that tempts the player to cut the corner of the pronounced dog-leg left. The left side is littered with sand and will catch anything that is not hit properly. Plenty of room on the right side, and given the short length, perhaps sensible to play a fairway metal from the tee and leave a full wedge or short iron to the green. The green is situated above the player from the fairway and thus judging distance on the second shot is a challenge.

HOLE 3 Par 5 / HDCP 15

hole3 explanation

Course Guide

Driving from an elevated tee, there is temptation to try to hit too hard. Deep bunkering in what appears to be the middle of the fairway between about 250 and 275 yards should ensure accuracy is also considered. As the hole meanders around to the left with trouble all the way down the left side, an accurate lay-up shot is needed. Another large green provides wonderful deception for the approach shot which must avoid the deep bunker carved into the right side.

HOLE 4 Par 4 / HDCP 13

hole4 explanation

Course Guide

Short it may be in terms of yards, but an accurate drive up the left side is required to offer a view of the green for the approach shot. Though not fatal to go right off the tee (provided you clear the pond), it will leave a difficult blind second shot from a deep valley. A deceptively shallow green that is easy to over-hit.

HOLE 5 Par 3 / HDCP 7

hole5 explanation

Course Guide

First of the four par-3 holes, and the hardest. Elevated tee provides an attractive and tempting target. A kidney shaped green is well bunkered and any poorly struck tee shot moving at all to the right will find a watery grave. Good green to hit, and even then it will need to be on the right side of the hole as two tiers make holing out challenging.

HOLE 6 Par 4 / HDCP 1

hole6 explanation

Course Guide

A straight away par 4 hole that moves gently uphill and so requires two long hits to reach the green. Whatever distance it looks for the second shot, take an extra club because the trouble is short and left, no impediments long and/or to the right side of the green. A rare relatively flat green.

HOLE 7 Par 4 / HDCP 17

hole7 explanation

Course Guide

An excellent short par 4 hole that demands strategy, not power, to play well. From the tee, the sensible play is a fairway metal or long iron to lay up short of the wide ditch that protects the green. The fairway gathers into a small valley from where a precise pitch is needed to hold the green that is well bunkered. Relatively small but severely undulating green, there are few easy putts.

HOLE 8 Par 3 / HDCP 11

hole8 explanation

Course Guide

Visually attractive short hole played from a slightly elevated tee with a mid-iron to a large well bunkered green. Backdrop of hills and trees. A difficult hole to club properly and avoid leaving a long first putt.

HOLE 9 Par 5 / HDCP 5

hole9 explanation

Course Guide

A straight away long hole to finish the front nine that runs directly on level ground towards the stunning clubhouse. The tee shot needs to be straight to avoid bunkering both right and left. Only the longest hitters will attempt to go for the green in two because the approach to the large two level green is narrow, water eating into the front left side of the green and a large bunker on the right side. The smart play is to lay up with a four or five iron, or perhaps a high fairway metal and leave a full pitch. The long distance from the front of the green to the back makes it important to hit into the correct portion of the green; otherwise there can be a very long putt awaiting.
