HOLE 1 – WESTWARD HO (PAR 4)

Sponsored by Jennian Homes

Tee Distances

A drive down the right side will leave a flat lie.  A medium or short-iron will be left for the approach with the green sloping slightly from right to left.  Avoid the bunker on the right side of the green.

HOLE 2 – ESTUARY (PAR 4)

Sponsored by Waimea Print

Tee Distances

A good drive will get you on top of a two-tiered fairway.  This will leave a medium or short-iron approach to a raised green with a water hazard to the right and a drop to the left of the green making it a tricky chip shot.

HOLE 3 – LUCKY DIP (PAR 3)

Sponsored by Golf
Hub Marlborough

Tee Distances

Bunkers right and left are deep. Go for the middle of the green.

HOLE 4 – SALT PAN (PAR 4)

Tee Distances

Dog-leg left.  A drive to the right side of the fairway will open up the green for the approach and will leave a short-iron to the green.  Watch out for the deep bunker on the left and the water hazard on the right of the green.

HOLE 5 – COZY CORNER (PAR 3)

Sponsored by Fico Finance

Tee Distances

A must-hit green, very difficult to get up and down if you miss the putting surface.  Three is a good score.

HOLE 6 – DEAD MAN’S (PAR 4)

Sponsored by Taylor Timbers

Tee Distances

A drive over the water down the left side will leave your ball in the middle of the fairway.  A mid-iron will be left to the green.  Anything short will kick into the green-side bunker on the right.

HOLE 7 – LONG JOHN (PAR 5)

Sponsored by Seifried Estate

Tee Distances

A drive down the right side will open up the approach for your second shot.  When hitting your second shot never go right.  The green is guarded by a bunker on the right-hand side and be sure to avoid the water hazard all the way down the left.

HOLE 8 – ALLANDALE (PAR 4)

Tee Distances

Pays to be straight on this one.  Tree-lined all the way and bunkers both sides of the green.

HOLE 9 – THE GULLY (PAR 4)

Tee Distances

Drive down the right side as the left side leaves you no shot.  The approach will leave you a fairway wood or a long-iron.  The green is shared with the 18th hole with bunkers to the left and right.

HOLE 10 – MATAI (PAR 3)

Sponsored by Russet

Tee Distances

This Par 3 usually plays into a prevailing wind and can be anything from a five iron down.

HOLE 11 – HA HA (PAR 5)

Sponsored by Stihl Shop

Tee Distances

A wide fairway flanked by a hazard to the left and trees to the right.  Two-tiered green protected by four bunkers, centre, left (2) and right and a hazard to the left.  Reachable in summer with two extremely good shots.

HOLE 12 – BOOMERANG (PAR 4)

Sponsored by Summerset

Tee Distances

Dog-leg right, aim for the big pine in the distance off the tee.  This will leave a long-iron with bunkers both sides of the green.

HOLE 13 – HIDEAWAY (PAR 4)

Sponsored by Yaza Cafe’

Tee Distances

For the longer hitter, a fairway wood or a long-iron is ideal for this short Par 4.  The elevated green drops off both sides, so the approach from the slight left dog-leg is critical, given the green also slopes left to right and from the back to the front.  A bunker protects the left flank.  This is a birdie, or a double/treble bogey hole for the unwary.

HOLE 14 – MANUKA (PAR 4)

Tee Distances

Right-to-left dog-leg.  Straight down the middle, short-iron to an inviting green, bunkers to the left and right.

HOLE 15 – RIDGEWAY (PAR 5)

Sponsored by
Crombie Lockwood

Tee Distances

A solid drive over the hill will give you a good chance to go for the green in two.  Watch the pin placement as this is a very long green.  Bunker front left.

HOLE 16 – PIGGADILLY (PAR 5)

Tee Distances

Out of bounds to the left.  Drive over the ridge and two extremely good shots in summer conditions you may reach the green.  Another very long green guarded by bunkers right and back left.

HOLE 17 – WEE WILLY (PAR 3)

Sponsored by
Pak’nSave

Tee Distances

The shortest Par 3 on the Course.  Watch the out of bounds and Greenacres Motel on the left.  The green has a big slope from back to front and is guarded by two side bunkers on the right.

HOLE 18 – JOURNEYS END (PAR 4)

Sponsored by
Waimea Motors

Tee Distances

Great driving hole, aim down the right side and it will end up back in the middle of the fairway.  A short-iron left to the green which is shared by No 9.  There are bunkers on the right and at the back of the green that are protecting the out of bounds.
