Hole 5 Information
The overriding philosophy behind the 5th hole is to strengthen its challenge to good players without overly increasing the difficulty for the average player.
This is achieved by providing distinct landing zones for each calibre of golfer with hazard positioning to impact more on the better player.
A wetland is sited right of the fairway around an island of original native vegetation. Bunkering on the left catches a shot that leaks off the line of play, and a group of cross bunkers just short of the green requires careful placement for the layup.
The green is receptive to a well played approach, but its undulations place a premium on positioning and putting. The green is guarded by two pot bunkers set into the ridge at the left and by a large bunker front right.
