A Walk Round The Course
Men’s Par 5, 441 metres. Ladies Par 5, 380 metres.
Slight bend left. A good drive to the right side will open the fairway for your second shot
over the gully and lay up below the green. A wedge should get you on the green, but don’t be long, it’s a bit ugly back there. Any shot that strays right will be in heavy bush, generally you will be able to hit it out but don’t expect great results, just get it back on the grass.
Could do with a slight fade off the tee if you can. (Draw for you left hander’s). Be careful to the right, heavy timber and out of bounds. Large trees and hard ground too the left. Steep bank in the front of the green, being short will be a tricky chip. Midway along the fairway, and over to the left on the edge of the bush, you will see the Grass Tree that features as our club Logo. These trees and the bushland behind them are protected.
Men’s Par 3, 198 metres. Ladies Par 3, 164 metres.
Easy as, down hill all the way and straight. Try to keep left of centre (don’t hit the big
gum) and it should run back right for an easy chip and run. Being right side of the green
makes for a challenging chip up.
Bit more of a challenge this one. A safe drive here is over the dam and up the hill on the right side. Slice or draw and you will have an interesting second shot. If you have managed to keep it on the fairway, well done, your second will be pretty easy from here. The surround has a ridge around the right side of the Green, so best to approach from the left.
Men’s Par 3, 148 metres. Ladies Par 3, 133 metres.
What a hole, the small Green is 10 metres below the tee. Watch your ball fly and hope it is not short. Long and left is safe. Short, or right, will need some chipping excellence to give you a chance at your par.
Men’s Par 4, 360 metres. Ladies Par 4, 304 metres.
NOTE. There is a fresh water drinking fountain at the bottom of the hill on the left as you walk from the Tee. There is a toilet block just to the left of the Green.
Men’s Par 4, 368 metres. Ladies Par 4, 312 metres.
The Men have a bit of a challenge from this Tee. A big turn left, so a draw off the Tee
would be productive. Not too early though or you will catch the big trees on the left, and
that won’t be good. If you hit it correctly you will end up in a perfect position, thanks to
the down hill run, for a pitch into the large green.
The Ladies have an easier run to the green with a straight fairway from the separate
A long walk up hill all the way. Even if you are a little left or right off the Tee, you should be able to get it back on the grass without losing too much distance. Approach the Green from the left if you can. There is a large mound front right and a steep bank on the right side behind that. The bounce off the mound could send you anywhere. This is a big Green with a challenging contour.
Men’s Par 5, 470 metres. Ladies Par 5, 387 metres.
A slight bend to the right to get to the green. Try and cut the corner and risk catching
the tall gums on the right. Safer on the left, but not too far, hard ground over there can
have your ball run into some difficult places. The green is small and slopes back
towards the fairway. Have a go at landing on it, it will feel pretty satisfying, but don’t be
long, as it drops off 3 metres at the back.
NOTE. There is a fresh water drinking fountain on the front left of the tenth Tee.
Men’s Par 4, 344 metres. Ladies Par 4, 297 metres.
Men’s Par 5, 477 metres. Ladies Par 5, 415 metres.
This is the longest hole on the course, the Green seems a million miles away, but three
straight hits and you’re there. A little trouble left and right along the way, but nothing too serious, unless you go too far right, then it’s ugly. This green also slopes back towards the fairway it also has steep banks left, rear and right, so approach safely from the front.
A simple easy swing will see it run up in front of, or even onto, the large green. The
wider surrounds are a bit rough but generally a chip or bump and run will get you back
to where your par is safe, but a bogey is very possible on this hole.
Men’s Par 3, 183 metres. Ladies Par 3, 170 metres.
Men’s Par 4, 382 metres. Ladies Par 4, 304 metres
Best to try and keep your drive left of centre. If you go right there is some heavy rough
and a drain that could catch you out. Left will give you some run, but watch the drain
this side as well. There is a small rise to the green from the front, and the grass is a bit
thicker. If your approach is a bit short it will most likely die on you before it makes the
NOTE. There is toilet block between the thirteenth Green and fourteenth Tee. There is also a fresh water tap there as well.
Men’s Par 4, 340 metres. Ladies Par 4, 315 metres.
Hmmmm…..There’s plenty of room down there, isn’t there? But be careful. There are
big trees on the right but the rough underneath is pretty clear. There is a marked hazard
in there as well. For the big hitters watch the drain on both sides. A smaller Green with a
big drop off at the back, best to approach from the right if possible to avoid the large
tree on the left that will stop you hitting a high shot in.
If you can curve your drive to the left a little you will be in great shape for your second.
Some low leafy gums on the left will really slow your ball if you go in there. From either side of the fairway your approach will be challenged by high spreading boughs from the big trees. If you’re in the middle, no problem, pitch it up there and see if you can hit the Green. It slopes to the front with a substantial step in the middle.
NOTE. There is a fresh water drinking fountain to the right of the Green as you walk across to the sixteenth Tee.
Men’s Par 4, 312 metres. Ladies Par 4, 297 metres.
Men’s Par 4, 360 metres. Ladies Par 4, 31 metres.
Big bend left, what to do? Down the centre or right is the place to go, but watch the big
tree overhanging that side. If you go left you need to hit long to be able to get past the
corner and have a chance to get to the Green with your second. A very big Green is
surrounded with 1 metre plus, hills and valleys left, back, and right.
Men’s Par 3, 135 metres. Ladies Par 3, 101 metres.
This is the shortest hole on the course, but still tricky. A mid or short iron up the hill too a green that is surrounded by a substantial bank with an opening at the front for those that are short and choose to run one in. Watch the high overhanging tree on the left.
Men’s Par 5, 435 metres. Ladies Par 5, 332 metres.
You can’t see the green that is down over the hill and to the right. Your drive will need to
be down the right side a little and after running left down the hill it will be in the best
position for your second shot. If your Tee shot goes left of centre you may end up with a
bit of work to get your second away. There is a small dam left and forward of the Green.
This can attract the end of your second shot, as does the very big gum tree on the right.
The green is just behind a short, considerable, rise in the fairway, your third shot in
needs to get over this or it will make you work for your par.

Men’s Par 4, 365 metres. Ladies Par 4, 350 metres.
Another slight bend left. You need to be on the right side again to avoid a difficult second shot around the big pine tree. Approach the green centre or left, right may see you run on the harder ground down into trouble. Don’t be long. There is a big drop off at the back, four metres below the green.
Men’s Par 4, 355 metres. Ladies Par 4, 307 metres.
Men’s Par 4, 337 metres. Ladies Par 4, 319 metres.
A narrow lane off the Tee, tall tree’s left and right, and up hill too. Go on, smash it up the
middle, you can do it. Watch the distance for your second. Anything longer than the
middle of the Green may see you run onto some ugly lies for your chip, or bump and run back.
A bit tougher for the Ladies as your Tee is lower than the Men’s, and you need to hit up the hill to start.
