10- RHS about 210m out. Will stop balls going onto 11th fairway. They need to be long and narrow type
11 - LHS at top of hill. As it is not a long par 5, may see more 3 woods and long irons off the tee
13 - probably ok as it is given the water carry also. you are right
14 - Shorten the hole by 30m. Add bunkers RHS top of hill.
15 - Bunkers on LHS corner. Encourage long hitters to fly the corner, or position play to outside of fairway
18 -12th hole bunkers are not really in play. Need to extend down the side of 18 th fairway. It is such a wide landing zone
I have read the report. Nothing dramatic in there that hasn't been discussed before.
10 (the old 9th). Does this still play as a Par 5 from the tee next to the dam (I have a feeling not)?
11 (the old 10th). How would a bunker on top of the hill stop people hitting driver?
14 (old 17th). Shorten by 30m? Add bunker RHS? Why? If you shorten the hole most people would hit it over the hill anyway.. and what is so special about the RHS that it needs bunkering? If your going to put a bunker anywhere on that hole wouldn't it be the LHS as it is the better line into the green? (RHS greenside bunker complex, stretches down the hill from memory, is not the place to go so best to avoid hitting a long iron over this from the RHS I would have thought).
15 (old 18th). Pull out the trees left, and I mean ALL the trees, and I could be with you on this one.
18 (old 3rd). Nothing wrong with a wide landing zone. You face a much more difficult, and long, shot from the extreme RHS anyway. Have they cut the trees down on the LHS cnr? If they haven't, and they probably should, that's where I would put a bunker complex.
