Edition 13 – ‘Best of golf in SA’ at Copperclub

The Sunday Mail’s Ben Hook and Royal Adelaide Teaching Professional Daniel Blackwell have reviewed three holes at the Copperclub which is situated less than two hours from Adelaide in one of South Australia’s favourite residential and tourism destinations within the Copper Coast region of the Yorke Peninsula.

Maintained to a championship standard the Greg Norman designed 9 hole course is recognised as having some of the best fairways and greens in South Australia.

The gods were smiling the day the duo reviewed the course. See the hole descriptions below which are featured on the Copperclub website and check out the videos.

Hole 4, 150 Metres Par 3

Hole 6, 499 Metres Par 5

This is a terrific par-five encouraging attempts to steal length down the left-hand side but bringing the out-of-bounds into play. From the fairway the player is greeted by a semi-blind second shot where a glimpse of the top of the flag indicates the general direction of a green shaped like a horseshoe, a wonderful design feature harking back to the era of legendary Scottish architect Dr Alistair Mackenzie.

Hole 9, 372 Metres Par 4

A green which features terrific surface contours and small ridges that divides the green into different sectors. The difficulty is further compounded by the green opening up from the left meaning the approach is easier from this side of the fairway adjacent to a massive vegetated sand-hill. Classic bunkering to front of the green on the right and a run-off area to the left completes a layout full of endless fascination.
