Rules applied on teeing-ground

On the green
At the course in general
1.Hole (PAR 3, HCP 11 man: 111 m, woman: 100 m)
Beginner’s tip- to avoid the chance of hitting the bunker, take a short iron from the tee so that you can hit the fairway. For your second shot, be careful where you hit the green, as it slopes right to left, so no matter the pin position, always aim to the right of the green.
Experienced golfer’s tip- before choosing your club, check the wind, as it will affect a high shot. When conditions are ideal, a pitching wedge or 9-iron targeting the right hand side of the green should bring your ball to rest close to the hole.
2. Hole (PAR 4, HCP 5, man: 255 m, woman: 233 m)
Beginner- this almost 260 m hole may seem long and strange at first, but don’t worry. With a medium iron you can reach the green in three or four shots. It is very useful if you are able to keep the ball on the left of the fairway.
Experienced golfer’s tip- a great opportunity for someone with confidence in their swing to use driver, but the pin position can be deceptive as it is easy to go through the green with your second, taking you out of bounds. It may be better to use a fairway wood or hybrid from the tee, then a pitching wedge should get you onto the green.
3. Hole (PAR 3, HCP 17, man: 99 m, woman: 83 m)
This short hole should only need a wedge to hit the green, but beware- it slopes steeply right to left, so aim right from the tee.
4. Hole (PAR 3, HCP 9, man: 130 m, woman: 115 m)
Beginner- this longer par 3 is easier than it looks, although your tee-shot can easily run through the green. A medium iron should help you hit the fairway just in front of the green, allowing you to chip it close to the pin with your second shot.
Experienced- this is the most open hole on the course, where the first shot can be easily affected by the wind and weather conditions. However, the fairway is straight and flat, so try to keep the ball low.
5. Hole (PAR 3, HCP 7, man: 122 m, woman: 110 m)
Beginner- the big drop from tee to green means just a short or medium iron is required from the tee. The fairway is very friendly, as it will help the ball roll towards the green, which can be reached in one shot.
Experienced- club choice is important as the drop from tee to green can help the ball roll through the green, so try choosing one club less than you normally would for this distance.
6. Hole (PAR 4, HCP 3, man: 233 m, woman: 218 m)
6th- the motto for this hole is use your brain, not your muscles. This is the most technical hole on the course, so it’s best not to take risks here. The target from the tee is the middle of the fairway, using the club which is most comfortable for you for around 130 m. For beginners, it may be best to take a short iron from the tee, then another short iron to reach the dog-leg, followed by an easy wedge to the green- however, beware the drop from fairway to green, as if you hit over the green, you could easily go out of bounds.
7. Hole (PAR 3, HCP 13, man: 109 m, woman: 101 m)
Beginner- this hole looks very tempting, however don’t fall into the trap- use a short iron from the tee to lay-up in front of the green, then a good chip should get you close enough to make par.
Experienced- in calm conditions, a wedge is enough to hit the green, but club up in a strong wind. As the tee markers can move as much as 15 m, check for the distance marker at the side of the tee for an accurate distance
8. Hole (PAR 3, HCP 15, man: 110 m, woman: 97 m)
Beginner- play this hole in a similar manner to the previous hole, taking into account the fact that the green is wide but not deep, and a little higher than the fairway, so it’s worth using a pitch shot for your second shot to the green
Experienced- as the green is higher and there is often a strong headwind, it’s worth taking a club extra for this tee shot
9. Hole (PAR 4, HCP 1, man: 282 m, woman: 266 m)
Beginner- the hill next to the cart path is marked by green topped red stakes, as it is a biohazard. If you play your ball into this area, don’t look for it, just drop a new ball, one club length from the entry point, under penalty of one stroke. Take note of the hazard positions, and play a risk free strategy on this hole
Experienced- if you hit your driver less than 230m, it’s worth aiming at the middle of the lake from the tee, as you will have a nice line for a wedge or short iron to the green. If you play longer than 230m, take a line over the right hand side of the fairway bunker, which will leave a short pitch to the green, and a possible birdie chance.
