Balaia Golf Course Tips

Hole 1 (Par 3)
73 58
A downhill pitch to a small green guarded by a pond. This is a scenic starting hole where feel for distance is at a premium. Long is safer than short.

Hole 2 (Par 3)
139 119
Only a good strike will reward the player on this testing hole. The tee and green are at the same elevation but between is a tree-lined stream, which must be carried. The green is protected by a frontal sand trap. Par is a good score here.

Hole 3 (Par 3)
67 59
An uphill shot to a green defended b a deep frontal sand trap. The ability to flight the ball high will gain rewards.

Hole 4 (Par 3)
160 147
A fine par 3 which enjoys a superb cork tree, short left of the green. A gentle draw on to the undulating green is the safest shot. Two sand traps to the right to catch the push or slice.

Hole 5 (Par 3)
106 98
Reversing direction to the east, this is another test of accuracy. The green which set in mounds, is protected by a sand trap on the front right.

Hole 6 (Par 3)
83 71
A downhill pitch to a green which is not deep. Traps at the front and rear add to the need for good judgement of distance. Any over-hit shot will land in the stream behind the green.

Hole 7 (Par 3)
146 130
The pleasant walk over a bridge brings the player to the demanding 7th. A long shot along a plateau with the green in a bowl below. Small pines and a sand trap guard the front of the green. Any shot to realign the green is a very good one!

Hole 8 (Par 3)
126 118
Heading to the north in the direction of the clubhouse, this hole requires a solidly struck shot. Two sand traps guard the front and left of the green. Friendly banking will help the shot which is only slightly off-line, but will add to the difficulty of the second shot, for any stroke more than twenty metres from the target.

Hole 9 (Par 3)
84 77
Running parallel to the 1st hole with the pond is again in play. There is bale-out space on the right but a tricky chip then faces the faint-hearted. The rear left of the green sports a sand trap to make any left of centre flag position, a test of carry distance.
