18 Hole Course
Professional`s Tip :Elevated Tee affording panoramic views of the course and surrounding countryside. Accuracy is the key here, with Out of Bounds left & right
Professional`s Tip : Looks can be deceiving. Get a good drive away to the top of the hill a short iron to the green is all you have, but beware the ditch and ponds off the tee.
Professional`s Tip :Drive to the bottom of the hill, too far left you will be blocked by the trees, too far right leaves a much longer approach shot, to an undulating green protected by two bunkers.
Professional`s Tip : Big hitters can cut the corner off, leaving a short iron, but with out of bounds left and right, accuracy is also called for. The oak tree is a good line.
Professional`s Tip : From the back tee this is a long iron or fairway wood, dependant on the wind. Best be slightly short of the green, too long and trouble lies beyond
Professional`s Tip : This hole can be a monster. Look to drive through the gap in the trees, keeping left from the tee will shorten the approach, but water is in play for most of the hole down the left and a cross ditch some 30yards short of the green.
Professional`s Tip : A simple looking hole, bunkers left and right on the fairway. Always seems to catch golfers unaware.
Professional`s Tip : This hole requires good accurate hitting from the tee, with plenty of hazards from trees to greenside bunker. Out of bounds in the practice area comes in to play as well especially with a left to right wind.
Professional`s Tip : Into the prevailing wind this can be a tough hole, but can also be rewarding with some good long hitting. No fairway bunkers, but he green is protected with two bunkers.
Professional`s Tip : Severely difficult par 3, with a sloping green left to right. Your tee shot parallel with the hedge/wall is the right play to take advantage of the fairway contours. Easier play is down the right for a relatively straight forward uphill chip.
Professional`s Tip : The church steeple in the distance is a good point of reference. The fairway slopes downwards to a green protected by two bunkers.A lovely hole
Professional`s Tip : An uphill shot that requires accuracy to miss the oak tree left and the bunker right. The sloping green from back to front makes putting tricky.
Professional`s Tip : Into the prevailing wind, two good shots are required here to reach a flat green protected on the left by a greenside bunker.
Professional`s Tip : This hole has been the ruin of many a good round. The tee shot requires accuracy as there are out of bounds left and right, with a small green safely guarded by a long narrow bunker .Spectacular views over the Menai Straits and Fort Belan.
Professional`s Tip : Drive up to the slope, wait for the bell to ring, hit your second shot right of the marker as everything slopes to the left. Small unguarded green.
Professional`s Tip : From the back tee two strong shots are required to reach a green protected by two shallow bunkers. The view of the Eifl’s mountain range in the distance is beautiful.
Professional`s Tip : Shortest of the Par 3’s on the course, but still requires an accurate shot especially if a cross wind is in play. Two bunkers left and right protect the approach to the green.
Professional`s Tip : A good drive past the fairway bunker will allow you to take on the pond to reach an elevated green in two. Any miss hit could see a watery grave. for those of us not so brave laying up short still leaves a tricky pitch into a Mackenzie green.
