- Hole Details
Favour the right side of the fairway, to open up the green for your approach.
Avoid missing the green to the left with your second shot; a large greenside bunker waits to catch errant shots.
Aim your tee shot to the right side of the green, no matter where the pin is.
Getting greedy and missing left will lead to a tricky bunker shot at best.
A lake all the way down the left hand side of this hole provides plenty of food for thought.
With bunkers, water and out of bounds to the right, tee your ball to the right side and aim to hit a gentle fade starting down the left side of the fairway.
This dog-leg right is arguably the toughest hole on the course, and a nett par is more than respectable here.
This short Par 4 screams birdie chance at you off the tee, but beware the pitfalls of an errant tee shot.
Left is out of bounds and right is a pesky group of trees that could leave you stumped for your second shot into the green.
Laying up for a full wedge into the green may well be the best option, particularly in a medal round.
A wide but shallow green, surrounded by several bunkers which are worth avoiding at all costs.
High handicappers may wish to aim left and aim to get “up and down” rather than attempting to thread the ball through the tiny gap between the two front bunkers.
Dog-leg left with out of bounds down the left hand side.
Tee up on the left side of tee and aim for the right side of the fairway, preferably with a draw, finishing just short of the fairway bunker.
A large green awaits.
The majority of errant tee shots are hit down the right on this short Par 4.
Aim to the left side of the fairway, rather than directly at the green, otherwise you will be left with a blind approach shot.
An iron is worth considering off the tee here as there is trouble both left and right, beware missing right and getting blocked out by the copse of trees.
A tricky green protects this short Par 4.
A great opportunity to really open your shoulders and unleash your longest drive of the day. Favour the right side of the fairway to avoid the fairway bunkers on the left. Avoid hitting your approach shot long, a slope at the back of the green leads to thick rough and a potentially lost ball.
Hole 10 has a generous fairway, just ensure you hit it!
The mound on the left is to be avoided at all costs.
Take an extra club for your approach shot due to the raised front edge of the green.
Go for the green if you’re feeling confident, just beware the five green side traps surrounding the green!
A large undulating green makes the dreaded 3-putt a regular occurrence on this hole, and can lead to a frustrating bogey if you’re not careful with that first putt.
Open fairway with a couple of strategically placed bunkers for particularly errant tee shots.
Higher handicappers are best off laying up short of the cross bunkers in front of the green and chipping on for a par chance/solid bogey.
This hole plays its full yardage, hit one club extra for your approach.
However, hitting beyond the pin will leave an intimidating downhill putt.
A driver here may take the trees on the right out of the equation, which should be your main concern on this hole.
Tee up on the right side of the tee and aim down the left side of the fairway.
Two deep bunkers surround this narrow green.
Shorter hitters may struggle to carry their drive onto the fairway, and the trees on the right are a definite “no go area”.
A large bunker guards the front of the green, which deceptively creeps out to catch under hit approach shots.
Similar to the 12th, a slick downhill putt will be the outcome of an over hit approach.
Out of bounds left and fairway bunkers right make this one of the more intimidating tee shots at Hurtmore.
A solid drive down the middle will be rewarded with a greenable second shot, but out of bounds continues down the left and going for the green also brings the water on the right into play.
Possibly the easiest of Hurtmore’s three Par 3’s, a stern test nonetheless with the intimidating pond interrupting your swing thoughts.
It is crucial to avoid the heavy rough and out of bounds to the left.
A generous stroke index makes this a great chance to pick up strokes/points.
An excellent opportunity to make a birdie towards the end of your round.
Once the water on the right is avoided off the tee, there is little to prevent a solid score other than the huge sloping green.
You will rarely get a straight putt on the 17th.
A precise tee shot is required, preferably left side of the fairway for the slope to feed the ball down to the centre.
Next you will find the most intimidating approach shot on the course, which has destroyed many a scorecard at Hurtmore, due to the combination of a water hazard and three greenside bunkers waiting to punish anything remotely miss hit.
A useful thing to know is that you get a free drop out of the flower bed and putting green beyond the green, however it is certainly not the recommended safety shot!
