The course commences with a gentle par four. It immediately gets tougher as the
second hole is tight and the third a par five that may be achievable in two for
some.
To achieve reaching the green in two on the third hole you need to be accurate as
trees surround the landing area and a little too much power could see you in
trouble on the steep bank behind the green.
The fourth is elevated and is a tricky par three. The fifth and the sixth offer an
open wide green with a flat hole.
The seventh requires strategy to achieve the par five. If you are attempting the
hole for the first time it is best to tackle the dog leg by staying left of centre on the
fairway. The eighth is a straight par three.
Hole nine is a par four with an elevated hole and green. You will need a long iron
to reach the longish par three on the tenth hole. The following three holes are
particularly challenging with plenty of trees. The eleventh hole bends right
three-quarters along.



Hole twelve is straight and 400m long which proves a challenge to achieve in the
par four. Next up is a 500m hole with a par five followed by another 400m plus
hole that has a number of undulations that make pitching and chipping difficult.
Hole fifteen is the last 400m plus hole on the course. The sixteenth hole has a
sharp right turn in it and the seventeenth a tiered green.
Finally you will reach the eighteenth hole that has a par five. The fairway sweeps
right all of the way to the hole.

This information should be used as a guide only - the real test is on the Course!

First Hole: The course commences with a gentle par four. Although by no means long, an accurate drive helps set up this hole. Water long and right shouldn't come into play. Trees on the right as well as a bunker on the front-right of the green make the left side of the fairway ideal for attacking.

Second Hole: Immediately gets tougher as the 366m par four slightly
uphill. Trees on the left side of the fairway make the drive tricky for those
shaping the ball left to right.

Third Hole: a par five that may be achievable in two for some. Again, you need
to be accurate off the tee as trees surround the landing area. The approach will
likely be downhill and a little too much power could see you in trouble with a
steep bank behind the green.

Fourth Hole: The green is elevated on this tricky par three. Your short game gets tested here as it is one of the largest and most undulating greens on the
course. The slope off to the right of the green aids balls hit in this direction
towards Out of Bounds, especially when the course is dry.

Fifth Hole: is a short par four up the hill. Avoid the fairway bunker and trees on the right.

Sixth Hole: it offers an open fairway and wide green. At only 245m this par four
should have you thinking birdie.

Seventh Hole: a dogleg left requires some decisions. It is possible
to cut the corner with your second shot. A drive down the right side of the
fairway is ideal. Out of Bounds runs along the far right of this hole.

Eigth Hole: is a straight forward par three. There is a bunker on the front left of a green that slopes decidedly from back to front.

Nineth Hole: is a longish par four. The fairway is wide and slopes gently to the left. There is a bunker on the left of the relatively flat green.

Tenth Hole: You will need a mid to long iron to reach this par three. Miss the
green short and left if you are going to as undulations right of the green make it
a tricky up and down.

Eleventh Hole: a 380m par four bends right at a magnificent old river redgum.
A drive down the left side of the fairway gives the best angle to the green. Twelfth Hole: The sheer length of the 400m proves a challenge to most. There is
however a generous fairway and little trouble around the green.

Thirteenth Hole: a 500m hole par five which bends to the right toward the end.
Fourteenth Hole: a deceptively tricky hole has a slightly raised green with a number of undulations that make pitching and chipping difficult, without mentioning putting.

fifteen Hole: is the last 400m plus hole and is rated the hardest on the course.

Sixteenth Hole: has a sharp right turn in it and and another raised green. Be
careful cutting the corner here as beyond the treeline is considered Out of
Bounds.

Seventeenth Hole: The 167m par three has a two-tiered green.

Eighteenth Hole: Finally you will reach the last, a par five which fairway sweeps right all of the along the hole. The green slopes toward a bunker guarding the front right of the green.
