Cottesloe Ladies Captain Lynn Malone has echoed her clubs delight in hosting the Bowra & O’Dea Women’s Classic next week, with the strong field being treated to a wonderful course in the Western Suburbs of Perth.
“We are very excited about hosting the event next week, and it gives a chance for our girls from Cott to play on their home ground,” Malone said.
Ahead of the much-anticipated tournament, GolfWA previews 4 of toughest holes at the Golf Course, with players likely to experience cool conditions over the three days.
Hole 6: Par 4, 315m
A long par 4. The fairway and green both slope which can often make conditions tough. Second shot needs to be at the right of the green, with a difficult putt following, as this is the toughest green on the course.
Hole 9: Par 4, 318m
This is the classic example of looks easy but plays difficult on the final hole of the front nine. The tee opens up to a generous fairway, however with a blind second shot, the hole becomes more challenging. The green is subtly narrow and well bunkered. This hole gets particularly difficult when the wind is up, with the entire hole into the breeze.
Hole 11: Par 3, 136m
A very difficult par 3 in prevailing winds. Better to under club than over club as disaster abounds behind the green and to the left. Wind can often see green difficult to hit.
Hole 18: Par 4, 310m
A difficult hole. Uphill all the way, with tee shot critical to the success of the hole. A well-struck drive will still see a reasonable second shot. Green slopes off at the back with bunkers to the left on approach. A lovely finish to an amazing course, with the clubhouse in front approaching the top of the hole.
