Front Nine

Hole 1

MEN: Par 3 – 123 Mtrs – Index 18/36                 WOMEN: Par 3 – 120 Mtrs – Index 18

A relatively straight forward opening hole which is downhill and plays to a green that slopes left to right.  Beware pin placements on the right as putting from the centre/left can still leave plenty of work to do.

Hole 2

MEN: Par 4 – 427 Mtrs – Index 1/19                    WOMEN: Par 5 – 426 Mtrs – Index 6

The hole plays over a hill to a fairway that slopes left to right.  The fairway is generously wide and the green slopes from back/left to front/right.  A second putt from beyond the hole can sometimes be difficult.

Hole 3

MEN: Par 4 – 279 Mtrs – Index 15/30                 WOMEN: Par 4 – 275 Mtrs – Index 15

A short dogleg right to left, with tall trees guarding the left corner.  Gives the big hitters an opportunity to get close to the green providing they shape the ball around the corner – too far left or too strong straight will end up in the forest.  The green slopes from back to front – very important to keep the ball below the hole.

Hole 4

MEN: Par 4 – 290 Mtrs – Index 12/28                   WOMEN: Par 4 – 286 Mtrs – Index 13

A straight away hole which can be driven by the long hitters in the right conditions.  Both the fairway and green slope gently from left to right making shots from the left hand side of the fairway more difficult.  The green is not very deep and is protected by 2 bunkers behind – very difficult up and down.

Hole 5

MEN: Par 4 – 347 Mtrs – Index 3/21                   WOMEN: Par 4 – 345 Mtrs – Index 1

Perhaps Korumburra’s signature hole.  Can play longer than its meterage as you drive into a hill which slopes gently from left to right.  Longer hitters need to be wary of a water hazard which is situated over the hill on the right hand side.  From the top of the hill you play over a gully to a green which sits at an angle and slopes from left to right.  Two putting from above the hole is a severe test.

Hole 6

MEN: Par 4 – 330 Mtrs – Index 8/24                  WOMEN: Par 4 – 285 Mtrs – Index 7

Wide fairway which slopes significantly from right to left.  Small “upturned saucer” green also slopes from right to left.  Missing the green right will leave possibly the hardest chip on the course.

Hole 7

MEN: Par 3 – 162 Mtrs – Index 6/33                   WOMEN: Par 3 – 154 Mtrs – Index 11

Testing uphill par 3 playing generally into the prevailing wind to a very small green which slopes from back to front.

Hole 8

MEN: Par 5 – 467 Mtrs – Index 13/31                WOMEN: Par 5 – 381 Mtrs – Index 8

A panoramic view from the tee sees a wide fairway with gentle undulations.  The green sits on a small hill and is protected by mounds at the front.  The green slopes from back/right to front left – beware a left hand pin if chipping/putting from the right.

Hole 9

MEN: Par 4 – 308 Mtrs – Index 10/26               WOMEN: Par 4 – 305 Mtrs – Index 5

An uphill par 4 which is full of deception. The fairway looks wide but go too far right and you will be blocked out by trees – but the right side of the fairway gives the best angle to attack this long, narrow elevated green.  The green surface cannot be seen from the fairway – check pin placement on the 1st tee before play.  Green is very fast from back to front.
