The Bruce Course Hole By Hole Guide
Par 4 | Yards: 335
Short straightforward par 4 to get you started. Green slopes away and is difficult to hold with second shot.
Par 4 | Yards: 308
Another short par 4. Position rather than length is important off the tee with the second loaded in over the bunkers.
Par 3 | Yards: 181
Tricky par 3 off the white tees requiring a mid to long iron to a well-protected green.
Par 5 | Yards: 495
A potential card-wrecker of a par 5 if overly ambitious. Usually best to play for position with second shot.
Par 5 | Yards: 507
Long, straight par 5. Bunkers and stream are a threat off the tee with further bunkers lying in wait for errant second shots.
Par 4 | Yards: 292
The notorious 'pond hole' which tricks many an unwary golfer. A very short par 4 which is perhaps reachable for some off the tee but not worth attempting except for fun.
Par 4 | Yards: 326
Optimal drive is tight to the left over the furthest bunker. Sloping green is difficult to hold with second shot.
Par 5 | Yards: 480
A drive down the right side of the fairway of this par 5 hole is key to allowing you to try for the green, which is reachable in two.
Par 5 | Yards: 483
A relatively straightforward par 5 off the white tees but a very demanding par 4 off the yellows requiring two hefty blows.
Par 4 | Yards: 370
A tricky par 4 requiring a long, straight drive in order to see the raised green with your second around the sharp dogleg left.
Par 3 | Yards: 175
A testing par 3 requiring an accurate mid iron to a narrow target with many drives bouncing down the slope to the right.
Par 5 | Yards: 513
The 5th par 5 in nine holes! The stream at 280+ yards is only in range to the longest hitters off the tee. Green slopes sharply right to left and is hard to hold.
Par 3 | Yards: 189
Long par 3 often into the prevailing wind means finding the putting surface with your drive is a great result. Green slopes back to front.
Par 4 | Yards: 389
Drive up to the crest of the hill on this par 4 leaves a downhill approach shot with a short iron to a large green.
Par 4 | Yards: 375
A deceptively tricky par 4 requiring a bold drive over the corner of the plantation on the right in order to make the second over dead ground to the green easier.
Par 3 | Yards: 160
Lovely par 3 to a long green protected by a series of bunkers front and left and by trees back and right.
Par 4 | Yards: 334
Position, not length, off the tee is important on this short par 4 to allow a lofted approach over bunkers to a wickedly sloping green.
Par 4 | Yards: 330
A relatively straightforward par 4 to finish with the well-protected green usally requiring a lofted approach with a short iron.
