East Course – Hole 17

Mens 520 metres 572 yards Par 5
Ladies 423 metres 465 yards Par 5

Playing Tips

The par five seventeenth is the longest hole on either course. The drive is a relatively simple affair across and down a hill, which makes it all but a blind tee shot. Interest is all in the second shot where there is a multitude of choices for the approach for each standard of golfer.

Well placed a diagonal line of bunkers cross the line of the long second shot some 100 metres from the green. Players are faced with a critical decision, play shot for two or attempt to fly the sand and reach the green, or at least the apron.

The green is large and has a subtle valley in the green which starts in the centre and moves to the left.  Make an Enquiry
