- Hole by Hole
10th hole: Short par 3 playing to a blind, elevated green. Steep slope with rough immediately behind the green and a bunker to the back right! Club selection can be tricky at times as the hill in front of you protects you from any breeze. Aim for the marker pole or right of it and natural contours should guide your ball to the putting surface.
11th hole: Fairly long par 3 from an elevated tee position to a tight green that is banked at the front, makes this a difficult hole for your ball to hit the target and stay on. With a bunker left of the hole, the right side of the fairway is your best option, avoiding trees and thick rough that runs the length of this side of the hole. Walking away with a 4 is a result!
12th hole: This is the first of four holes across the road, and what an introduction! This is a long par 4 to an elevated blind green with a narrow approach (enough said!) Best to play it as a par 5 since there is rough all the way up the left side and more rough up the right, together with out of bounds on the right , nearer the hole... with a good tee shot taking you to the foot of the hill, a mid to short iron for your 2nd - following the narrow line of fairway and marker pole - should leave you with a view of the green for your 3rd. From the back of the medal tee, it's 216 yards to the foot of the hill and from there, a further 198 yards to the centre of the green.
13th hole: You can be quite exposed to the elements on this par 3 with an elevated tee playing to a large, sloping, three-puttable green that has out of bounds tight to the right side of the green. Try playing slightly short to the left side of the fairway, avoiding thick rough on either side, and your ball should get a favourable bounce down onto the green.
14th hole: Par 4 to an elevated green that is protected by a deep bunker to the front left and a shallower bunker at the back. You can take on the burn that dissects the fairway with a good drive over, or you can take the preferred option of laying up short, near the marker pole - this leaves you with a good line in with a mid to short iron for your 2nd. Best to aim at right side of the green, since it's like The Grand Canyon on the left! From back of medal tee it's 196 yards to marker pole and then 117 yards from pole to centre of green.
15th hole: Short par 3 that often plays harder than it looks. Out of bounds high up on the left with rough preventing the ball running down onto the green. A deep bunker protects the front right side of the green and a steep slope takes anything else away from the putting surface that is too far right... just be accurate!
16th hole: Back across the road again, this par 4 is all about positioning your tee shot.Unless you are a short hitter, you might want to leave the driver in the bag and aim to the leftish side of the fairway, avoiding out of bounds down the right. This should leave you with a mid to short iron for your 2nd, crossing both burns that are at right angles to each other that protect the green. From back of medal tee it's 230 yards to centre of ridge on fairway and then a further 92 yards from here to centre of green.
17th hole: Requires a good belt off the tee to get up this par 3 to an elevated green. Watch out for the burn running across the fairway, short of the hill, as well as the rough and out of bounds to the right of the green. Shorter hitters would be wise to play to the foot of the hill and pitch up with their 2nd - many a par 3 has been saved this way!
18th hole: A generous fairway to aim for on this par 4 that plays from an elevated tee down to the shared fairways of the 1st and 18th. You can afford to aim well left (but watch the burn!) off the tee to avoid out of bounds down the right. This still requires a solid 2nd shot over both burns to find the green that is sheltered by the clubhouse. From back of medal tee it's 286 yards to bridge furthest right and 75 yards from here to centre of the green.
