Pro’s Tip:

1st hole requires a straight drive with out of bounds to the left and trees waiting for a stray shot to the right. Comfortable 3 shots for an average golfer, possible 2 shots for “risk and reward” long straight drive.

Pro’s Tip:

This hole requires a straight tee shot with OB left and trees down the right. A good drive sets up a mid to short iron approach to a small Mackenzie green.

Pro’s Tip:

Dogleg left so play the hole straight to the right of the fairway bunker leaving you a mid iron into a bunker guarded green. “Risk and reward” drive left of the bunker over trees leaves a short pitch shot to the green.

Pro’s Tip:

A straight drive to the corner of this right handed dogleg leaves you a long iron or fairway wood approach to an elevated Mackenzie green. “Risk and reward” drive over the right hand dogleg leaves a shorter iron approach.

Pro’s Tip:

Elevated tee shot for this dogleg to the right. A straight drive to the corner of the dogleg leaves a long iron or fairway wood into the green. “Risk and reward” drive over the middle of the wood with a carry of 260yds leaves a short iron to the green.

Pro’s Tip:

Long to mid iron par 3 to a well guarded green. Bunkers short left and right.

Pro’s Tip:

With the fairway sloping slightly from left to right a good drive left of centre will leave a short to mid iron into the green. Everything tends to favour the left side of this green on the approach as most shots tend to bounce right on this small green.

Pro’s Tip:

2nd of the par 5’s with trees down the right but plenty of room down the left side. With a good drive it is possible to get on in 2, normally played into a cross-wind but a comfortable 3 shot par 5 onto a flat green.

Pro’s Tip:

Dogleg left with a fairway sloping slightly from left to right. A good drive wants to be left of centre which would leave a mid iron into a slightly uphill Mackenzie green.

Pro’s Tip:

This fairway slopes from left to right so a good drive left of centre leaves a mid iron approach. This should leave an approach from the left side of the fairway which is the best angle for this well guarded green.

Pro’s Tip:

Long Par 4 requires a good straight drive aimed at a single tree over the brow of the hill. This should open the green to a long to mid iron into a green with bunkers left and right.

Pro’s Tip:

A short but well guarded par 3 with one bunker front left and two on the right waiting to capture shots straying off-line.

Pro’s Tip:

Downhill tree lined par 4. A good straight drive leaves a mid to short iron into the green. Nothing for long behind this green.

Pro’s Tip:

Trouble down the left side with Eller Beck coming into play. A straight drive sets you up with a mid to short iron approach to a small green sloping from right to left with a left hand bunker catching any mishit shots.

Pro’s Tip:

Not a long par 4 but very tight in places. This hole favours a long iron or hybrid off the tee into a position right of centre. This is the ideal line leaving a mid to short iron into the green. Anything short will come to rest in Eller Beck.

Pro’s Tip:

Picture card looking par 3 but trouble all over. From the back tees a 175yd carry over Eller Beck onto the green.

Pro’s Tip:

A long testing par 4 requiring two good hits to make the green. A drive left of centre should leave a long iron or fairway wood approach to an elevated green.

Pro’s Tip:

From the elevated championship tees this final tee shot over the dam needs to be left of centre. This should leave a mid to short iron approach to the Mackenzie green with a bunker front right catching any mishit shots. Yellow or red tees at 256 and 247yds respectively make a significant difference to this hole with a “risk reward” decision to go for the green off the tee.
