The 1st Hole
460m / 362m
Index 16 / 14
The entire left side of this hole is OOB.
A drive down the left of centre to the base of the hill sets up a second shot aimed right and away from the danger.
Longer hitters can put their drive straight down the centre if not slightly right as the shorter length of this Par 5 will enable a second shot straight to the green
The 2nd Hole
341m / 316m
Index 6 / 3
This is our signature hole and has magnificent views of West Peak and glimpses of Mt Bogong.
A straight drive up the left hand side of the fairway to the top of the hill is ideal.
Remember your second shot will be uphill and MUST carry the front fringe of this elevated green.
The 3rd Hole
367m / 296m
Index 8 / 7
The ideal drive is just right of centre as the slope of the hole will cause the ball to bounce left on both the drive and the second shot.
If the drive is behind the 150m the second shot should be aimed at the last pine tree on the right, and at the same level, where it will bounce left and run onto the green.
The Ladies have an opportunity to draw the ball, for a right hander, around the tree on their left. Bigger hitters can go over this tree.
The 6th Hole
389m / 349m
Index 2 / 1
The drive is crucial to playing this hole. It is better to go through the corner than be on the right under the trees. A drive aimed at, or slightly left of, the small green Pitosporum tree in the centre of view is ideal. The corner is 182m from the Men’s tee block.
Second, and subsequent, shots MUST be aimed left of the green.
THIS HOLE DEMANDS RESPECT
The 8th Hole
254m / 242m
Index 18 / 16
Rated as the easiest hole on the course for the Men. Longer hitters can get to the green in one by taking a line over the trees on the right on top of the first rise. Your best plan is to aim for the Electricity Pylon in view on the hill behind if you don’t think you can hit it far enough. A lot of locals take an iron.
The 12th Hole
427m / 380m (Par 5)
Index 1 / 13
Arguably the hardest hole on the course (for the Men) – see hole 6!!
The perfect drive is at the 150m marker on the corner of this dogleg right. Care should be taken not to go too far through the fairway, but far enough to clear the overhanging pine on the inside of the corner. It is around 220m to the overhanging pine and 260m to the 150m marker from the blue tees. The second part of the fairway tends to kick right to left.
The 15th Hole
329m / 329m
Index 7 / 4
DO NOT go right with your drive.
The target is just right of the Golden Cypress. Bigger hitters aim for the Gum just left of centre. The second shot needs to be threaded between the Gum and the Pines. Keep left of the flag. Anything right anywhere on this hole will be punished.
The 16th Hole
320m / 304m
Index 11 / 6
Driving straight down the middle to the top of the hill is perfect. No longer than 260m to 290m to give a good angle to the green for your second shot. Shorter hitters, right and to the base of the hill is good. From this position aim the second shot to skim the pines on the left. The safer shot is to the centre of the fairway and rely on a good pitch to save the day. Anything right from the base of the hill will end up under trees between 16 and 6.
The 17th Hole
141m / 126m
Index 17 / 15
Aim left of the flag. (Coming off the steep bank on the left is a favourite, although shunned by purists!). ANYTHING right is well and truly a disaster. The green must be hit, or ball landed just in front of the green, to have a chance of staying on the green.
The 18th Hole
202m / 157m
Index 5 / 17
At 200m this hole plays deceptively short from an elevated tee. Bigger hitters only need long irons. Anything right may bring the only bunker on the course into play. If in the gully before the green use the aerials on the clubhouse as your second shot target and stay to their right.
