As Australia’s only Arnold Palmer signature course, The Pines is recognised as one of Australia’s best and most challenging courses. Carved through 101 hectares of established pine forest, the course features corridor approaches to several holes, with lakes guarding others. Fourteen of the holes are contoured around six man-made lakes. An abundance of wildlife features on The Pines including rare bird life and scores of native Australian kangaroos.
With a course rating of 74 off the black tees and 72 off the blue tees the course offers a very special golfing experience.
The challenging 350 hectare course was designed by leading Australian golfer Graham Marsh. Par 72 measures 6319 metres off the championship tees. Water comes into play on 14 holes and there are 82 sand bunkers.
The signature Par 3 – Hole 17 – is a challenge for any golfer and is an experience in courage or folly. At 230m off the black tees and 180m off the whites, most players cannot reach the green due to the prevailing head wind. So one must consider playing this par four rather than a par three, but then again, you decide!
18 provides visitors with a fantastic view and although it may be a
long journey “home”, there is plenty to see and avoid. The 18th green is
surrounded by bunkers and a hollow out front. A challenging end yet it
is hoped you’ll not be disappointed.
