-Hole 12 (16 in 2006)
-Hole 13 (17 in 2006)
-Hole 14 (18 in 2006)
-Hole 15 (14 in 2006)
-Hole 16 (15 in 2006)
-Hole 17 wasn’t played last year (in 2006 Hole C10 was played as Hole 13)
-Hole 18 (12 in 2006).  Last year this hole was played from this year’s 17th tee therefore Hole 18 this year will be shorter as it will be played from the original tee.
