Hole One

A strong hole to start your round of golf at Redland Bay. The first hole has a generous fairway leading to a large flat green surrounded by mounds and two bunkers. The mounding behind the green will help your approach shot from going through the green however playing your approach shot for the middle of the green is advisable. A par on the first at any course is a great way to start your round.

Hole Two

A dog leg left par 4 which predominately plays into the breeze. Your tee shot must avoid the trees down the left to leave yourself an approach shot to the green. Avoid right of the green when hitting your approach shot, as a bunker and the trees will catch any stray ball drifting right of the putting surface.

Mens: 375 metres par 4

Ladies: 360 metres par 4
 

Hole Three

A short, tight par 5 but don’t let the index fool you, a bogey can be found easily on this hole. From the tee avoid trouble on the left and stay short of the fairway bunkers, from here a simple lay-up shot into the heart of the fairway should leave you about 100m to the green. An accurate approach shot is required into this green as it is guarded by two bunkers at the front and a water hazard to the back right of the green. Long hitters can attack this hole by attempting to fly the bunkers from the tee, a carry of approximately 250 meters will be needed to clear the bunkers though.

Ladies: 420 metres par 5

Hole Four

Slight downhill par 3. The large green is surrounded by two bunkers and slops from back to front. Behind the green is a hazard, so playing for the middle of the green if the pin is at the back is a safe option.

Mens: 177 netres par 3

Ladies: 141 metres par 3
 

Hole Five

A tight undulating short par 4. An accurate tee shot is required here to avoid Moogurrapum Creek, which runs down the left hand side of the fairway. The green is elevated from the fairway and surrounded by three large bunkers, two on the left hand side and one which is actually about 20 meters short of the green. The green is large and slopes from back to front.

Ladies: 309 metres Par 4

Hole Six

The shortest hole at Redland Bay Golf Club, with a large two tiered green. The green is surrounded by two bunkers, one on the left the other at the front. The putting surface has a large tier running across it, making a tee shot to a back middle pin more difficult. Avoid going long on this short hole as Moogurrapum Creek is about 10 meters past the putting surface.

Ladies: 111 metres par 3

Hole Seven

Another short par 4 where accuracy off the tee is highly important. The tee shot must avoid trees and a bunker to the left and water to the right side of the fairway. The tee shot must also avoid a small creek that crosses the fairway about 70 meters from the green. The approach shot is across a dam to a green that is guarded by a bunker to the left to catch any stray golf balls trying to avoid the dam that is short of the green. The putting surface has a tier across the back right hand side making putts on this side of the green difficult to make.

Hole Eight

According to the stroke index, this is the toughest of the short par 4’s at Redland Bay Golf Club. An accurate tee shot of about 210 meters is required to reach the dog leg of the fairway and give you an uninterrupted view of the green. You can play your tee shot to the right hand side of this fairway from the tee to help you get a better look at the green however this will leave you with a longer approach shot to the green. The green is surrounded by water to the front and left as well as a bunker to the right. The putting surface has a large tier running across the left hand side making putting across the green difficult.

Hole Nine

A great finishing hole to the front nine, the 9th hole is a dog legged par 5 which generally plays into the breeze. From the tee there is water to the left and trees to the right, the right hand side of this fairway is preferred though. From the fairway your second shot is a layup shot past the dog leg, ideally you only want to leave yourself a shot of less than 120 meters into this green. The green has water on the right and four bunkers surrounding it, though the front bunker is actually 15 meters short of the putting surface. The green has a large tear running across it from left to right making an approach shot to the back pin more difficult. The safe shot when the pin is at the back of the green is to play for the middle, avoiding the bunkers and the water.

Ladies: 416 metres par 5

Hole Ten

A dog leg right par 4. It’s best to keep your tee shot down the left hand side of this fairway as trees on the right can block your approach shot to the green. When hitting for the green avoid the bunker on the left that is 10 meters from the green as hiding behind this bunker is a water hazard. The putting surface runs from back to front so a putt down the green can get be slippery.

Mens: 380 metres par 4

Ladies: 322 metres par 4

Hole Eleven

This short par 4 generally plays into the wind making it play longer then it measures. From the tee players must avoid a fairway bunker down the left and a creek that runs across the fairway, the creek is about 245 meters from the tee, a long hitter can take on the creek if they dare however they will need an accurate drive down the left side. The green is guarded by a lone bunker on the right hand side and slopes from back to front. If the pin is on the front right of the green keep your approach shot below the hole otherwise you will be left with a difficult putt.

Ladies: 301 metres par 4

Hole Twelve

A straight drive is required from this tee, players must avoid a fairway bunker down the left side and Moreton Bay to the right. The left side of this fairway is preferred from the tee to leave a better approach angle into the green. The green has two bunkers on either side plus a water hazard to the right of it. The putting surface has a tier that runs through the middle of the green from back to front making an approach shot difficult to the raised right hand side of the green.

Mens: 348 metres par 4

Ladies: 316 metres par 4
 

Hole Thirteen

A long tough par 3 with the smallest green and bunker Redland Bay has to offer. From the tee avoid the water hazard to the left and Moreton Bay’s mudflats to the right. Ideally players should aim to finish short of this green, leaving a simple chip up onto this relatively flat putting surface.

Mens: 198 metres par 3

Ladies: 159 metres par 3
 

Hole Fourteen

The 14th hole at Redland Bay Golf Club is the club’s signature hole. Many conversations are heard at the 19th, of players discussing tales about this monster. A par 5, measuring 508 meters, players need to avoid Moreton Bay’s mudflats to the right, dense trees to the left and 7 pot bunkers strategically placed on the fairway and around the green. To make matters more difficult, when playing this hole during king tides, the mudflats turn into one enormous water hazard, running down the right hand side of this entire hole. Accuracy is required for all shots on this hole to avoid the trees and the fairway bunkers, two good shots hopefully will see you reach the corner of the dog leg leaving yourself about 110 metres to the putting surface. The green has two bunkers at the front and a large swale at the front right of the putting surface, making an approach shot difficult to a pin placed close to this mound.

Mens: 508 metres par 5

Ladies: 405 metres par 5

Hole Fifteen

A short dog leg right par 4 with trees down the left and Moogurrapum Creek down the right. From the tee an accurate shot of about 190 meters is required to reach the dog leg of the fairway. Preferably you need to hit your tee shot down the left hand side of the fairway to open the green up for your approach shot. The green has a deep bunker to the left of the putting surface and a water hazard over the back which should be avoided.

Mens: 290 metres par 4

Ladies: 240 metres par 4

Hole Sixteen

A picturesque par 3 where players hit down to a large green surrounded by two deep bunkers at the front and a shallow bunker to the back right. The tee shot is hit from an opening in a cluster of trees making it difficult for players to get a good read on where the wind is coming from. Playing for the middle of this green is always a safe option.

Mens: 156 metres par 3

Ladies: 121 metres par 3

Hole Seventeen

The fairway bunkers on the right hand side of the fairway need to be avoided when playing this hole. A lay-up tee shot of about 180 metres should find a player just short of these bunkers leaving an approach shot of about 140 metres to a small and difficult green. For the longer hitter they can take the fairway bunkers on by hitting their tee shot down the left hand side of the fairway or by flying it over the fairway bunkers, though they will need to carry their tee shot at least 225m to achieve this. The kidney shaped green is raised from the fairway and is surrounded by 3 bunkers. The left hand side of the green slopes away into a valley, making an approach shots to a back left pin difficult. Make sure you don’t miss this green long or to the right, as an up and down to save par will be prove difficult.

Mens: 323 metres par 4

Ladies: 302 metres par 4
 

Hole Eighteen

A straight, short tree lined par 5 to finish the round at Redland Bay Golf Club. Beware of a dam that is on the left side of the fairway about 100 meters out from the green, a precise lay up short to avoid this dam is required. When playing your approach shot into this green, you will find the green is protected by a bunker at the front and to the right hand side of this green, as well there is out of bounds to the left and behind the green.
