Short par 4 to tempt big hitters
The new 15th hole (old 9th hole) was converted from an originally proposed 225 metre par 3 to a short par 4 (about 300 metres from the back tees), with the green site situated on and behind the dune ridge of the old 10th hole’s forward teeing grounds. The image below left shows the the challenge that will face members from the tee.
In other course news, the 19th hole – which was incorporated into the routing during construction – has seen the completion of seeding the green surface. The image below right shows the new green, which sits on the site for the old 14th green.
