Playing Tips

A gentle starting dogleg right, hitting the fairway is your first objective here. The green slopes from right to left with a bunker protecting the right side. Watch the boys play this hole and encounter an extra degree of difficulty!

Playing Tips

A myriad of challenges on this hole. It’s a really deceptive shot off the tee, with a long iron or hybrid the big tip, leaving a longer shot into the green. Lots of character on this green with a big slope from left to right. A nice hole this one.

Playing Tips

The line of gum trees down the left frames the hole nicely. Intimidating looking bunkers around the green.Great looking hole.
