The Course

Any golf club is only as good as its course and Riverside is genuinely proud of its 18-hole layout which tests all areas of a player’s game.

Hole 1

Hole 1

The opening hole provides a sound examination of a player’s nerve. The true measure of a golfer is to drive the mound but in an attempt to reach this the majestic eucalypts and blackwoods lining the fairway get more than their share of visitors. Avoid going left off tee as the out of bounds can be closer than you think.

Hole 2

Hole 2

This hole requires a considered choice to carefully place the drive clear of the trouble left and right on the short dogleg left. Either a fairway metal or long iron will leave no more than a modest wedge to an elevated postage stamp green. A front flag position can make this hole more difficult than it looks. Play smart from tee to maximise your opportunity to go at the flag.

Hole 3

Hole 3

A long par 4 generally helped by a prevailing breeze puts the squeeze on producing a good tee shot. The fairway bunker is generally not in play for the lower markers, however, it does come into play with a southerly blow. Hit this fairway and enjoy your second to the heavily bunkered green. Avoid going long as you will have a tricky downhill chip on to the green.

Hole 4

This par 3 looks fairly straight forward from the tee, however, be careful of the tiered green and encroaching bunker to the left. This hole is quite protected from a right to left breeze which often sees players leaving their tee shots right of the green. Do not go there as it makes for a very difficult chip!

Hole 5

Generally playing into a prevailing breeze the long dogleg 5th provides many options to the longer players, none of these however are very easy. Shaping a fairway metal right to left from the tee can leave you around 150m to the green. Crunching a driver over the tall pines and eucalypts that line the left hand side of the fairway can reward you with a short iron to flat green.

Hole 6

A straight par 5 gives you the chance to recover from the previous hole. Easily reached in 2 by the longer players, grip it and rip it from the tee. The shallow fairway bunker on the left hand side of fairway should cause few problems if found. The green is well protected by some tricky bunkers so lay up well if you are not going for home in 2.

Hole 7

Hole 7

A short hole protected by water in front of the green and to the left which is usually played with driver in the more temperate seasons. (Beware of smoking a good one straight into the dam). This leaves a short but demanding pitch over water to an undulating green which slopes away at the back and, disconcertingly, down toward the pond at the front. Spin one up a bit when the greens are at their fastest and you can moonwalk it back into the lake.

Hole 8

A tough par three that requires you to carry the ball 170m to clear the bunker that protects most of the front of this wide green. Hit the ball pin high and you won't find too many problems. Alternatively slip one just left of the bunker (commonly referred to as veteran’s alley) and role up onto the left hand side of this green. In an effort to clear the massive front bunker be careful not to over shoot this green. The ensuing chip will cause some grief.

Hole 9

The approach shot in front of the clubhouse gallery perched high on the balcony induces many a nervous shot. You will play your approach without being able to see the base of the pin, so knowing its position is a must. Anything long will leave a difficult chip to the deceptive slopes of the 9th.

An elevated tee can make this a tricky par 3 especially when the wind picks up. Generally the hole plays a club shorter than its distance suggests thanks again to the elevated starting position. Avoid the bunker to the right and don't go long.

Hole 11

This par 5 dogleg right can reward a good drive with only a mid iron required to reach the green in two shots. However trees to the right side of the fairway and the well bunkered approach to the green conspire to make par a well earned reward for a more conservative approach to the hole.

Hole 12

Hole 12

This hole plays shorter than its distance suggests given that it winds its way gently up hill, with the second shot usually playing into the prevailing conditions. The tiered green has been responsible for many a foul utterance given that, when prepared for championship play, the slope and speed of the green is such that keeping the ball on its surface requires a deft shot. Do not leave yourself a downhill putt!

Played from an elevated tee position this hole doglegs left to a green that has bunker protection both on its left and right sides. With out of bounds right and tree trouble left it’s a very difficult driving hole. What looks like a very flat green has a subtle break that teases the best putters.

A little gem of a hole with bunkers placed in front and to the left with substantial blackwoods adjacent to further complicate recovery from an errant tee shot. It pays to check the pin location as you walk down the 13th as viewed from the tee it is very difficult to calculate.

This long hole demands a lengthy drive to the corner with out of bounds along the right hand side. The second shot over the creek must be placed to set up a very precise shot to a narrow green protected by bunkers either side. All the while the prevailing winds push any slice out of bounds and towards the most delicious blackberries in the Tamar Valley.

A well set up hole that plays at varying lengths depending on the breeze of the day. The water hazard to the right only catches the most wayward of approach shots, but the greenside bunker gets many more. This slightly elevated green can make getting up and down from the right hand side tricky.

Make sure your club selection is spot on and remember, if you miss it left of the bunker, you will not make par.

Hole 18

A magnificent double dogleg shaped hole which plays its full length due to the elevated green location. The tee shot needs to be directed to the centre or right side of the fairway to allow the second shot to be placed on the left side of the fairway. Two very good hits can see you make this tough par 5 in 2. The smart play however is to leave yourself a comfortable pitch following a smart layup. The green is protected on both sides by bunkers which are far less daunting than the shot you will have if you go long!
