Playing Tips

The long par-four seventeenth is the quintessential strategic dogleg. Two fairway bunkers on the left of the fairway guard the perfect tee shot line to the hole. The first of these is only 150 metres from the tee and the second can only be carried by the longest of hitters.

The fairway stretches out wide on the right, but for every metre the ball is pushed to the right off the tee, the approach to the green becomes more difficult.

The second shot is played across a valley up to the green.  Players who prefer to run their balls on to the green have ample opportunity to do so.  Make an Enquiry
