Hole-by-Hole

Hole No.1

Hole No.1

A straightaway driving hole with out of bounds on the left and mature trees overhanging the right side of the fairway. In wet conditions, a long iron or fairway wood is required to a two-tiered green.

Hole No.2

Hole No.2

A short Par 4 but which requires a well-placed drive away from a giant samaan tree which catches many balls. The hole doglegs to the left and a mid to short iron is required to an elevated green which has the room for some difficult pin positions. Behind the green is out of bounds.

Hole No.3

This is a Par 5 often reached in two provided you shoot down a narrow ‘chute.’ All along the left edge of the fairway is out of bounds and there are some massive trees seventy yards from the tee box which catch many a ‘bail out right’ drive. The 2nd shot is downhill. Trees and a huge drop off behind the green require the approach shot to be accurate.

Hole No.4

A solid drive uphill and generally upwind is required leaving a wood to long iron in wet conditions and a mid iron in the dry to a small green where most pin positions are tricky.

Hole No.2

Hole No.5

Varies between a short to mid iron depending on the tee and pin positions. When the pin is right back, the bunker and samaan trees come into play. A relatively simple green.

Hole No.6

A long and difficult driving hole that doglegs left with the river running down the right. There is a thick patch of trees lining the dogleg. The 2nd shot often requires a mid to long iron or a fairway wood to an undulating green.

Hole No.7

A great, challenging Par 3 with all the ingredients of wind in the face, length, hazards in the front and to the right side and out of bounds on the left. A picturesque and imposing view from the green. Many a championship dream have ended at this hole.

Hole No.2

Hole No.8

Basically a straightforward Par 5 with a dogleg to the left over the river. The river to the right and orange trees to the left flank the fairway on the drive. A well-positioned 2nd shot is required.

Hole No.2

Hole No.9

A very long Par 4, unreachable by most in wet conditions. Overhanging bamboo and the river to the left and a series of mature trees to the right make a long approach shot through a ‘chute’ into the wind even more challenging. Most would be happy to settle for a bogey 5.

Hole No.1

Hole No.10

This is the longest Par 5 on the course where a well-positioned drive is important as there are trees on the right and the river runs down the entire fairway on the left. A precision approach shot is required to a severely sloping green with the river crossing in front of the green. Front pin positions can be extremely tricky as the downhill putts can be lightning fast.

Hole No.2

Hole No.11

A Par 3 into the wind requires a short to mid iron. The river on the left acts like a magnet. Bail out attempts to the right usually result in the ball ending ‘on the beach’ as two huge bunkers await. The hole has a steeply sloping green which is very fast in dry conditions.

Hole No.12

This Par 4 requires a straight drive to clear the river which runs across the fairway and to avoid a big samaan tree on the left and trees on the right, all of which are in play. The river just to the left of the green presents danger on approach shots. The green slopes from the back to the front and can be very fast.

Hole No.1

Hole No.13

A sort Par 4 that requires a precise tee shot. It is a 90 degree dogleg left with the hillside on the left in play on the drive. The 2nd shot is a short iron to an elevated green fronted by bunkers. This is one of the many difficult greens on the back nine.

Hole No.14

A difficult driving hole protected on the left by bamboo and on the right by Tonka Bean trees creating a chute effect. Drives to the left bring the encroaching hillside into play. The approach shot needs to be accurate to one of the more difficult greens on the course. The green slopes from back to front.

Hole No.15

This is the shortest Par 3 on the course which requires a deft wedge to a narrow green. There is trouble all around with a huge bunker protecting the front of the green, a hazard at the back and high bush on the left. The green is very fast in dry conditions and has often prompted the question “Is this really stroke index 18?”

Hole No.1

Hole No.16

A dogleg left, downhill Par 5 which plays relatively easy with a good drive. However, the river running the length of the hole of the left has caught many an errant drive while a continuous patch of trees on the right is often in play and causes a player to think carefully how he plays his approach shot. A big, relatively simple green yields many birdies.

Hole No.17

This is considered by many to be the most difficult hole on the Back Nine. It is a long driving hole which places a premium on positional play. It requires an accurate 2nd shot with a need to avoid the spur of the hill. The sloping green is tricky and any pin placement to the extreme left can be responsible for three and four-putting.

Hole No.18

This dogleg right Par 4 is an excellent finishing hole. A long drive is needed to clear the corner with the trees on the right often in play. The river running across the entrance to the green catches mishit approach shots. The sight of members in the upstairs bar watching every approach shot with great anticipation has put fear into the hearts of many a player. Downhill putts can be extremely fast.
