Kauri

The tenth hole is the longest par 4 on the course at 401 metres. Strategic placed fairway bunkers on the right of the fairway are designed to catch the tee shot of all levels of golfers. A drive too far to the left will find you in dense rough. The left half of the green is protected by a large deep bunker and on the right by thickly grassed swales. The large green slopes from right to left and downhill putts are deceptively fast.

Naming the Hole

Kauri – Named after the significant mature row of Kauri Pines that form an imposing visual line along the right side of this testing Par 4 hole to begin the back nine. Commanding their place along this higher ground of the Course, these trees form a strong feature in the landscape even when viewed from afar in the Clubhouse.

Playing Tip

Hopefully you’ve had nine holes to warm up for this one as it demands two well struck shots to get to the green. Avoid the fairway bunkers.

History

This was Hole 3 on Carnegie Clark’s plan and the present alignment is much the same. For many years, the tee was near the eighteenth green to give a slight dogleg and its mounding is still evident today (recently converted to Champion grass). The tee was moved to the original site a few years back.
