1st Hole Men 473 metres Par 5 Index 7 Ladies 433 metres Par 5 Index 7 Sponsor - Morgans
This is a tough driving hole with out of bounds left and tree trouble on the right. For your best chance for your birdie or 3 pointer is try to keep your ball on the same level as the flag.
2nd Hole Men 365 metres Par 4 Index 2 Ladies 333 metres Par 4 Index Sponsor - Entire Plumbing
You need a well hit tee shot here because there are tall trees just off the tee that will punish any bad shots headed left and a reachable penalty area on the right hand side of the fairway. A shot that turns from right to left is best off this tee.
3rd Hole Men 338 metres Par 4 Index 9 Ladies 320 metres Par 4 Index 11 Sponsor - Lexus Port Macquarie
This is the most demanding tee shot so far needed on this hole. Try to split the fairway so you are on your way to par or better. The fairway has a few slopes on it and your ball can quite easily run off the fairway and end up amongst the trees.
4th Hole Men 375 metres Index 3 Ladies 379 Metres Par 5 Index 14 Sponsor - Selwyn Peake Optometrist
Be careful of the hidden fairway bunker on the right hand side that can’t be seen easily from the tee. Bigger hitters should aim a little further right and carry the bunker leaving around 130-150 metres to the green.
5th Hole Men 135 metres Index 18Ladies 112 metres Index 18 Sponsor - Page 5 Office National Port Macquarie
This is the shortest and the easiest hole on the course, but be careful of the 3 greenside bunkers that are quite tricky.
6th Hole Men 311 metres Par 4 Index 16 Ladies 292 metres Index 8 Sponsor - Warren Plowright Toyota
Aim to hit straight at the big bush through the fairway. If you get it past the trees on the left hand side you should have a nice shot up to the narrow entrance of the elevated 6th green.
7th Hole Men 166 metres Par 3 Index 13 Ladies 160 metres Par 3 Index 13 Sponsor - Mid Coast Gaming
Pause here longer as it's a really pretty part of the course. Leave the ball below the hole on this green as downhill putts become rather difficult.
8th Hole Men 338 metres Par 4 Index 12 Ladies 334 metres Par 4 Index 5 Sponsor - HEM Property
The ideal shot off this tee will be right to left, eliminating the possibility of losing your tee shot in dense bush/swamp area and requiring a reload. Be wary of the false front on this green. Any approach shots which land on the front section are at risk of running off the front edge.
9th Hole Men 504 metres Par 5 Index 6 Ladies 465 metres Par 5 Index 1 Sponsor - Midcoast IT
This is a challenging hole for golfers of various levels. At over 500m, a well struck tee shot is important in setting up your chances at taming this hole.
10th Hole Men 328 metres Par 4 Index 14 Ladies 317 metres Par 4 Index 6 Sponsor - KFC Port Macquarie
There are elevation changes on the hole. An ideal tee shot will be played down the middle of the fairway, which will give the best opportunity to attack any pin position.
11th Hole Men 331 metres Par 4 Index 5 Ladies 325 metres Par 4 Index 4 Sponsor- Lake Road Dental
An ideal tee shot will be placed up the left of the hole even into the rough as it will feed down into the fairway. Parts of this one can be difficult even for seasoned players, so enjoy the challenge!
12th Hole Men 506 metres Par 5 Index 8 Ladies 424 metres Par 5 Index 10 Sponsor - Meryllyn Page Conveyancing
The green is fairly flat and large with three green side bunkers waiting for any pushed or pulled approach shots. This is a good birdie opportunity.
13th Hole Men 168 metres Par 3 Index 15 Ladies 150 metres Par 3 Index 16 Sponsor - Port Tyre World
This is a tricky one. Be careful the green has a false front which will cause balls to roll back down of the front of the green. Don't get confused by the subtle ridge which runs up the middle of the green.
14th Hole Men 366 metres Par 4 Index 1 Ladies 360 metres Par 4 Index 2 Sponsor - Hastings Fresh Meats
This is the toughest hole on the course. If you get past this, well done and congratulations!
15th Hole Men 338 metres Par 4 Index 11 Ladies 312 metres Par 4 Index 9 Sponsor - Newport Village
An ideal tee shot would be a right to left shape working the ball in to the middle of the fairway. This will leave you with around 120 metres to the green.
16th Hole Men 164 metres Par 3 Index 17Ladies 142 metres Par 3 Index 17 Sponsor - Plumbtec
The green offers numerous pin placements with back right being the most challenging. A smart play would be to find the middle of the green giving a good birdie opportunity to all pin placements.
17th Hole Men 314 metres Par 4 Index 10 Ladies 267 metres Par 4 Index 12 Sponsor - Gem Life
The green slopes dramatically from the back to front with two greenside bunkers front left and front right. Avoid going over the green as the chip shot will be very fast running back down the slope.
18th Hole Men 358 metres Par 4 Index 4 Ladies 360 metres Par 5 Index 15 Sponsor - Mark G Hammond Funeral Services
There are elevation changes on the hole. Don't put the ball on the back tier with a front flag/hole location. It would be better to keep the ball underneath the hole.
Everyone's favourite hole! This is where you can finish your game and have a well-deserved treat! A refreshing cold beer, anyone?
