Course
A lot of the Fairway bunkers are very well placed in landing areas and players must be very accurate from the tees. The Course is playing short due to very good weather in the week leading up to the tournament. A water hazard comes into play on 6 holes (three of them par 5’s). There are 6 doglegs and all the par 5’s are reachable in 2 shots.

Grasses
Fairway – Ryegrass/bent
Rough – Ryegrass/bent
Greens – Penncross

Fairways
Average width for Fairways (around 28 yards). A lot of shots will be played from ‘slopey’ lies.

Greens
Small Greens are well protected by bunkers. The Greens are running at 9.5 on the stimpmeter.

Rough
Semi-Rough: 1 band at 30mm
Rough: at 80
The Rough is very dense making the course a bit tougher.
