Hole 1 - 162 M, Par 3
The tee, 10m x 12m, is bordered by purple and white hebe bushes. The fairway begins 65 metres from the tee. The hole is slightly downhill with the green protected; on the front right by a long narrow bunker and on the left by a grassy mound. There are out of bounds areas on either side of the fairway. A large pine tree which sat to the left of the green was struck by lightning in October 2011. Its subsequent removal has opened this hole up quite a deal. Recent plantings to the left of, and behind, the green will again see an increase in difficulty on this hole.
Hole 2 - 313 M, Par 4
The tee, 5m x 15m, bordered by geraniums and succulents, is located to the left a large elm tree. The fairway begins 85 metres further on. The hole is a slight dog-leg to the left, there is a large gum tree on the left, ~140 m from the tee, and a dam on the right, ~180 m from the tee. The raised green is two tiered with a grassy mound on the left and native bushes on the right.
Hole 3 - 271 M, Par 4 & Women's Hole 3 - 159 m Par 3
A long, narrow tee, 5m x 20m, coming out of a chute of mature pine trees to a short, dog-leg right. The left is OOB on to Romsey Road while the right hand side is protected by a curving line of cypress trees and many native trees. The small green is protected by a grassy mound on the left. The green slopes back towards the fairway, OOB begins 4 – 5 m behind the green however, a 20m wide and 4m high mesh fence on the boundary stops all but the very worst overhits. There is a garden bed below the fence – free drop.
The women’s thee is some 120m in front of the men’s tee.
Hole 4 - 364 M, Par 4
A large 10m x 8m tee, bordered by purple and white hebe bushes, looks down this straight hole. There is a dam on the right ~220m from the tee. Two grassy mounds project into the fairway from either end of the dam. There are trees up both sides of the fairway to the green. The green slopes back to the fairway, a dense thicket of elm and birch trees lies 20m further on, however large amounts of soil have been deposited to the west of the green and shaped into a curved mound to slow and hold long shots and to keep vehicles as far off the course as possible.
Hole 5 - 345 M, Par 4
The 5th tee, 5m x 8m, is raised whilst the 12fth tee, 5m x 10m, is 1.5 metres lower and 20m forward, a garden of succulents, dedicated to Jim Freestone, lies between the two tees. The hole is a dog-leg to the left, mature trees line both sides of the fairway. The raised green is protected by large pine and gum trees on the left. Balls striking the right edge of the green may roll down into another treed area. Going over the back provides a difficult shot to get up onto the raised green whilst not running off the front.
The women’s tee is some 80m in front of the men’s tee..
Hole 6 - 335 M, Par 4
From a 5m x 8m tee bordered by purple and white hebe bushes, players hit over a dam ~85m from the tee. There is a large gum tree on the right of the the dam to catch any slices/hooks. On the left are pine trees and numerous new plantings of native trees. The hole is a dog-leg to the left to a good sized green. The corner, ~220 m from the tee, is guarded by a large pine tree and numerous native trees. There are large pine trees on the left, and a garden immediately behind, the green.
The women play from a tee some 50m in front of the men’s tee.
Hole 7 - 438 M, Par 5
The first par 5 on the course. Players hit off a long, narrow tee through a chute of mature pine trees. There is a planting of trees ~185 from the tee on the left and a large, open area on the right. Drives need to fade/draw slightly left to get around the trees, slices/hooks may well land you in the large open area leaving a challenging shot over tall trees back to the fairway. The fairway is lined with a variety of mature and young trees. A good second shot will land you near, or on, the sloping green. The green slopes to the fairway and is protected by a curving grass mound that runs up and around the left side and back of the green, staying below the hole is vital.
The women’s tee is some 100m in front of the men’s tee.
Hole 8 - 147 M, Par 3
The 15th tee, 5m x 7m hits slightly uphill to the largest green, on the shortest hole, on the course. A deep bunker on the front left and a grassy knoll on the right protect the green. There is some native grass to the right of the fairway and deep rough and many young trees on the left. Rapidly growing trees are ~7m over the back of the green OOB is another 3m behind these trees.
Hole 9 - 188 M, Par 3
Perhaps the signature hole of the course. A long narrow tee, 5m X 15m, hits slightly downhill to a raised green, there is an OOB area, (the length of the hole), about 30m left of the fairway. The fairway has a large gum tree to the right, ~100m from the green and a large gum tree just short of the green on the left. A large pine tree sits ~7m behind green, the area immediately under this tree is often bare or covered by pine needles. A grassy mound is situated on the right side of the green Again, it is important to stay beneath the hole
Hole 10 - 110 M, Par 3
From the 5m X 7m tee you shoot to the second largest green on the course. There is a mound 7m on the left of the green and also 4m over the back. The wind can play havoc here with players needing anything from a sand wedge to a six iron. The NW wind can also move balls dramatically into the rough on the right of the green. A large number of trees have been planted behind this green, as they grow they will give some protection from the wind and also provide some danger for the overly long shot.
Hole 11 - 401 M, Par 4
A long par four which plays slightly down-hill. There is a large pine tree on the left, ~40 from the tee. Down the right side of the fairway there are numerous large trees, younger trees line the left side of the fairway. There are also areas of longer grass and tussocks on right side of the fairway to catch errant drives. The green is raised slightly and protected on either side by grassy mounds. Approach shots need to be either on the green or in front/to the right. The left is heavily protected by cypress trees.
Hole 12 - 360 M, Par 4
From the 5m X 15m tee you will need to drive ~220m drive to reach the corner ~160m from the green, then a sharp dog-leg to the right. Your ball should be on the left or centre of the fairway to get a view of the green. There is an internal Out Of Bounds (OOB) on the right hand side of the fairway. The OOB runs from the tee to about 40m short of the green. The NE corner and fairway feature a mixture of mature pine and native trees. A large pine tree also sits at the SE corner. Overly long drives often end up around this tree making for a difficult 2nd shot. Adventurous players may take on the corner to shorten the hole, high reward but also high risk. The green is protected by a grassy mound front left, the green also slopes to the fairway as well as to the right. A number of trees have been planted behind the green. A large, curved mound runs around and about 6m west of the green to slow and hold long shots and to keep wheeled traffic as far off the course as possible. Native flowering bushes will be planted on the top of this mound to add colour and another garden to the park.
