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 and a short iron to the green is all you have.
Professional`s Tip :Tee shot to the bottom of the hill to leave yourself a mid to short iron approach to the green.
Professional`s Tip : Big hitters can cut the corner off, leaving a short iron, but beware of the out of bounds 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 demand accuracy from the tee. Always seems to catch golfers unaware.
Professional`s Tip : A good accurate strike from the tee with a long iron or even a driver for some, is rewarded with a chance for a birdie on this long Par 3. Plenty of hazards from trees and a greenside bunker waiting for any wayward shot. Beware of the out of bounds right, especially with a left to right wind.
Professional`s Tip : A good testing Par 5 into the prevailing wind. The longer hitter may fancy their chances, but beware the two tier Green is protected by two bunkers waiting for any mis-hit wayward approach.
Professional`s Tip : A demanding 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. Beware of the deep fairway bunker at the top of the slope. The fairway slopes downwards to a green protected by two bunkers. A lovely hole
Professional`s Tip : A tempting Par 3 with the green facing the player. Tee shot 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 : An elevated tee shot down to a fairway that doglegs to the right. 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. 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 not so brave laying up short still leaves a tricky pitch into the elevated Mackenzie green.
