Carrickstone Course Guide
1st – Tak Me Doon
A challenging Par 3 to start your round. Beware of cross winds which may push your ball into one of the green side bunkers.
At 478 yards this Par 4 is long enough to be a Par 5. A good drive down the hill is required for an iron shot to the green.
This 388 yard Par 4 is a slight dog leg right to left, with the fairway sloping slightly left to right. Beware for the fairway bunker on the right hand side to have a mid-iron to the green.
This hole is index 1 for good reason! At 372 yards, the tee shot needs to be straight to avoid the out of bounds down the right hand side and water hazards to the left and on the left hand side of the fairway. A good tee shot leaves a long iron or fairway wood to the two layered green.
This Par 3 is defended by a water hazard short right and a deep bunker to the left of the green.
Dog legs left to right. Avoid the two fairway bunkers on the left hand side for a mid-iron to the green.
This par 4 plays longer than its 285 yards. It is all uphill and a slight left to right dogleg.
The first of two back-to-back Par 5s, at 477 yards long presents a good birdie opportunity with the prevailing wind behind.
The second Par 5 at 514 yards requires a good drive and a good second shot to clear the fairway bunkers and have a wedge to the green.
Plays slightly right to left. With the wind behind is driveable for the bigger hitters, aiming over the trees in the left hand side semi rough.
Plays from left to right. A good tee shot is required to have a medium iron shot to the raised green.
This long Par 3 needs a good tee shot to find the green for your par.
A tricky tee shot with out of bounds on the left and the “soup” to carry on the right, sets up an iron shot to the green.
A driveable Par 4 with the wind behind. Aim left and use the natural contours to set up an eagle opportunity.
A visually delightful hole guarded by three greenside bunkers. A good birdie opportunity, but you must leave your ball below the hole.
A tough hole into the prevailing wind, a good drive and a long iron or fairway wood is needed to reach the green.
The reservoir at the back of the green is not in play, but sets off a great back drop to the green. All downhill remember to club down for your approach shot.
