It's birdie time! Plenty of fairway on this hole with the only trouble being left. For the long hitters a good drive left of center leaves a fairway wood or a long iron approach to set up a birdie.

Brian’s Tip:
Beware the trees to the right of the tee as these can come into play should you be contemplating a big draw for your tee shot.

 

 

The shortest of the par 3s. Be careful when the pin is on the back as a tee shot over the green may land you in trouble.

Brian’s Tip:
Aim for the pin. This is a birdie hole.

 

 

The final hole on the front side is a fairly straight par 4. Make sure you take one club extra for the second shot as the green is uphill from the fairway and a short shot may leave you in the front left bunker.

Brian’s Tip:
Careful with your putting here as this green is fast downhill. Get yourself a cold beer from the clubhouse as you pass on the way to the tenth tee.

 

An uphill par three that requires an accurate tee shot to miss the two bunkers either side of the green. The green has a slight slope from left to right, so the general rule is to aim left of the flag when putting.

Brian’s Tip:
Be careful of going over the back with your tee shot as the ball can run away towards the 11th tee if hit too hard.

 

 

A tough par four, the eleventh hole requires an accurate tee shot avoiding the trees on the right. You are then left with a mid to short iron over the water to a downhill green. Be carfefull not to over club here and land over the green.

Brian’s Tip:
Play smart here as par is a good score.

 

Keeping the tee shot center left on this hole leaves a straightforward short iron to the green. Avoiding the bunkers on the left and the right should set up a birdie chance.

Brian’s Tip:
Shoot for the flag, it's birdie time.
