Hole 12

MENS:   464 METRES  Par 5

The first of 2 consecutive Par 5's the 12th offers the chance of a birdie if you can negotiate the fairway and green side bunkers. Off the tee the long fairway bunker on the left is a constant danger covering all lengths of hitters. The second shot must then avoid the 2 fairway bunkers on top of the hill to the right that start around 120m out from the green. Longer hitters can reach the 12th in 2 shots but must thread the needle and avoid the deep green side traps. Otherwise golfers can lay up onto the top of the hill leaving a pitch or into the deep valley at the front of the green. The green is large with a small tier in the middle creating some tricky putts.
