Course Tour

Hole 1

Par 5

 

This is a great starting hole that requires precision rather than strength. Try to keep to the left side of the fairway throughout. Anything hit right and you’re in “frogs hollow” and chipping out sideways.

Avoid the bunker just short of the green front right and the green slopes away from you. Index three for the men and one for the ladies shows it’s worth.

Mens
Metres: 488

Womens
Metres: 457

 

Hole 2
Par 4

 

This hole sweeps down to the right and requires a drive of about 200 metres left of centre to be in a good spot to approach from. A bunker front right is worth avoiding and the huge green slopes away from you

Mens
Metres: 348

Womens
Metres: 324

Hole 3
Par 4

This is a relatively short hole but you can end up in more trouble than Burke and Wills if offline off the tee. Uphill all the way with a long greenside bunker on the right with a two level green. Finding the right hand side of the fairway is the ideal shot

Mens
Metres:298

Womens
Metres: 239

Hole 4
Par 4

Beautiful hole with glorious views down to the Jervis Bay from the tee. Trees both sides but long hitters can take them on as a good drive will leave you a short approach to the green.
Bunker front right and the green slopes away from you. Warning- do not leave yourself a downhill putt here! It will run, and run, and…

Mens
Metres: 338

Womens
Metres: 311

Hole 5
Par 3

This is one of the best Par 3 holes in the district. Elevated tee box but hitting down and over the drain and lake and up the other side to a small, elevated green. This tee box is normally sheltered from the wind so checking the flag is a must. Once on the green the fun can really begin as it slopes back to front with several changes of degree of the slope. You won’t forget playing the fifth at Vincentia!

Mens
Metres: 152

Womens
Metres: 140

 

 

Hole 6
Par 5

This is uphill most of the way but is a relatively easy hole provided you hit it straight. 60 metre wide fairway and long hitters can reach in two. A massive gum tree 60 metres short and right of the green and a nasty long bunker front right make aiming left a much better option coming in. Good birdie chance for the good golfers.

Mens
Metres: 428

Womens
Metres: 420

 

 

Hole 7
Par 4

This hole is all downhill but the trees on both sides can grab your ball. The approach shot is crucial. The green has three bunkers around it and several subtle slopes to test you.

Mens
Metres: 352

Womens
Metres: 342

 

Hole 8
Par 4

Rated the hardest hole and for good reason. Uphill all the way with plenty of trees around. The approach shot in is the key. Avoid the out of bounds left and the drain on the right. Take an extra club or two as the uphill green is deceptive. Big green with several subtle breaks to test everyone. A great, challenging hole.

Mens
Metres: 357

Womens
Metres: 320

Hole 9
Par 3

Relatively easy  hole. Out of bounds left and two bunkers to the right are the obstacles to overcome. Green is small but slopes deceptively back to front. A good hole to regain your sanity before you pop into the bar for a halfway refresh..Cheers!

Mens
Metres: 138

Womens
Metres: 132

Hole 10
Par 3

First of our “new” holes and quite a good test. It’s a long iron at least with 2 bunkers on the right being good areas to avoid. Huge green which is relatively flat.

Mens
Metres:180

Womens
Metres: 141

Hole 11
Par 4

How easy- only 300 metres! Wrong. Enviromental Hazards on both sides of the fairway and a narrow landing area.

Due to Enviromental conditions you can’t enter this area to look for lost balls so hitting the fairway is crucial as well as having nerves of steel hitting your approach shot in, especially if you are into the normal headwind.

Get off this hole with a good score and breathe a sigh of relief. Good test. Hit it straight I say!

Mens
Metres: 300

Womens
Metres: 295

Hole 12
Par 3

This is our signature Par three hole with fantastic views across the bay. The prevailing winds are crucial here as all the right hand side of the hole is out of bounds. Anything left of centre is ideal here. Beautiful big green with more subtle breaks to keep you guessing.

Mens
Metres: 151

Womens
Metres: 119

 

Hole 13
Par 4

Short par 4 hole but once again very challenging. Elevated tee shot down a narrow chute and the lake is all the way down the left hand side to catch any errant tee shots. Don’t go wide to the right or you might end up in the dam at the 11th tee. A short approach is normally required to another massive green . Walk off here with a bogie and feel good.

Mens
Metres: 310

Womens
Metres: 235

Hole 14
Par 5

This is the first hole revisited but the mens tees are normally back next to the clubhouse. Same rule applies- aim left! Keep out of  frog’s hollow” and avoid the bunker.

Mens
Metres: 488

Womens
Metres: 457

Hole 15
Par 4

This is the second hole revisited so you should have learnt after the first time. 200 metres to the left of the fairway and avoid the bunker front right. Green slopes away from you with several subtle breaks to really test your putting ability.

Mens
Metres: 348

Womens
Metres: 334

Hole 16
Par 4

Third hole revisited but those trees have probably grown a bit since you first played the hole so hit your drive straight up the right hand side of the fairway. Avoid the greenside bunker on the right and putt with care.

Mens
Metres: 298

Womens
Metres: 239

Hole 17
Par 4

Fourth hole revisited but with a different tee box which changes all the angles of the hole. The left hand side bank of trees come more into play so a safe drive out to the right is a good option. The big hitters can still attack with their tee shots but the odds aren’t as good as when playing off the forth tee. A really “thinking” hole.

Mens
Metres: 332

Womens
Metres: 324

Hole 18
Par 5

This is the eighth hole revisited (yes the hardest hole on the course) but the men have to carry two dams with their tee shots as the tee is 60 metres further back. Challenging tee shot with trees both sides as well as the water. Don’t hit it right off the back tees as elephants go to die in there. Left is the way to go. Avoid the out of bounds left and the drain right. What a good test for your ultimate hole. The nineteenth hole beckons at the top of the hill…..go for it.
