Peninsula Kingswood North Course Holes 10-15 Open for Preview Play

Holes 10 to 15 of the North course open today for preview play as part of an interim composite course.  Featuring one of the most spectacular loops on the property, this is the first chance members will have to play the new holes which have been out of play for much of the past year.  While the holes largely remain in their previous position, changes have been made to bunkering, greens, sandy wastes and native heathland areas.  A new 10th green, built in a redan style and pushed some 40 metres further back, is a noticeable change which also creates an opportunity to play the hole as both a strong par 4 or shorter par 5.  Likewise at the par 5 15th, a new set of tees have been constructed nearer the 14th green to allow occasional play as a long 4 – particularly when the 10th is played at its full length.  Major changes will also be noticeable on the 11th, 13th, 14th and 15th greens whilst the table-top green at the 12th which extends from the unique hogback fairway has largely been retained.

The front nine construction is largely complete with holes under grow in with construction shifting to the clubhouse zone and practice facilities.  All 36 holes are expected to be complete and open for play later in the year.

The image below shows the par-3 14th hole from above. Additional images of the new holes, taken by Gary Lisbon, will be released via our social media channels in the coming weeks.
