GolfWA previews Cottesloe Golf Club

21st Mar 2018

Cottesloe Ladies Captain Lynn Malone has echoed her club’s 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 the 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. The 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.
