Back Nine

Back Nine

The back-nine welcomes more water into play. Narrow fast fairways, with undulating terrain makes this nine a testing ending to your golf round.

Par 35, Length: 3080m

10th HOLE - Par: 5 | Length: 508
Planting of trees on the right of the fairway has given this hole more shape and curves. Coupled with the left hand slope, this hole will require a thoughtful approach. An accurate drive is all important but the approach shot that misses the green to the left will pay a hefty price!

11th HOLE - Par: 4 | Length: 318
A relatively short hole, but none the less extremely tricky. Teeing overwater into a narrow fairway with water hugging both sides of the fairway. Then a small approach over a water again into a nicely tucked away pin with water behind, in front and to the left of the hole. Mind your step.. you might catch a glimpse of the local resident crocodile.

12th HOLE - Par: 4 | Length: 381
An interesting hole with a dogleg to the right. The green is protected by a lake directly in front and tall vegetation to the right. Which ever route is taken the large crowd along the 12th fairway should see some fabulous golf over the weekend.

13th HOLE - Par: 3 | Length: 160
A demanding long Par 3 over water and immediate out-of-bounds on the right. Hitting into a large green with large swales demand accurate putting.

14th HOLE - Par: 4 | Length: 393
The Green is nestled up against the water has added a new dimension to the 14th. An accurate drive down the left side of the fairway will reward but the approach shot will demand a steady nerve as any errant shots will be severely punished.

15th HOLE - Par: 4 | Length: 357
This wide fairway demands the golfer open the shoulders and go for distance. Not too many dangers and an excellent birdie opportunity provided the drive doesn’t deviate to the right.

16th HOLE - Par: 3 | Length: 146
Expect a large and interested gallery wandering past from the Erima settlement. Otherwise a relatively straightforward par 3 and a distinct birdie opportunity.

17th HOLE - Par: 4 | Length: 417
A long par 4 with Parliament Haus and Independence Hill on the left where the giant PNG flag shows the wind direction. Requires an accurate drive to exit the tee to the right to set up a longish approach to a small unprotected green.

18th HOLE - Par: 4 | Length: 400
A dogleg to the right should not present difficulties as the fairway is wide. A short and accurate approach shot to the narrow green provides the opportunity for a confidence boosting birdie. A great finishing hole, even after a bad round a modern range & bar is nearby to cool you down.
