Course Guide
Low Handicap Player

The green is reachable in two, but two long and accurate shots are needed to be on the green. The prevailing wind will take the ball left to right but if it’s behind you and there’s some run on the fairway – go for it. With the Out of Bounds on the right, the ideal tee shot is to the left side of the fairway with a little bit of fade to set up for a good second shot into the green. It’s important not to go short because it’s a long narrow green 34 yards deep.

Higher Handicap Player

Your drive should be slightly left to avoid the Out of Bounds and a nice easy swing should take your ball onto the fairway over the lane. From here you should be aiming for a lay-up short of the bunker giving you a short iron into the green. Aim for the middle of the green and you won’t be far from the flag.
