HOLE 1 - PAR 4
A kind start to the round, a fairly short par 4. The right half of the fairway will leave an easier approach shot to a long narrow green that slopes from back to front.
HOLE 3 - PAR 4
A fairway that slopes slightly from left to right, a couple of fairway bunkers may affect the longer hitters. When hitting into this more rounded green, a clear opening allows for an approach shot to land short and run into the green.
HOLE 5 - PAR 4
This is the longest par 4 on the course with fairway bunkers on either side of the fairway. The hole doglegs from left to right with a tight entrance to the green.
HOLE 7 - PAR 4
A narrow hole that gets tighter the longer you hit your tee shot, there are fairway bunkers each side of the fairway at 200+ yards. When playing your approach shot you will find a two tier green that slops from back to front.
HOLE 9 - PAR 4
The front nine holes finish with a tricky dogleg par 4. There’s a hazard across the fairway that will require a 180+ yards tee shot to clear. After a good tee shot there is a long narrow green awaiting with two greenside bunkers to add protection.
HOLE 11 - PAR 3
A tree lined par 3 with a hazard that runs along the left hand side of the fairway. A small green with two greenside bunkers requires perfect club selection.
HOLE 13 - PAR 4
A short par 4 with a cross hazard to carry from the tee at 175+ yards. A tee shot on the left hand side of the fairway will leave an easier approach shot to a long narrow green guarded by one greenside bunker.
HOLE 15 - PAR 4
A par 4 that has a pond running across the middle of the fairway, a lay-up shot from the tee may suit shorter hitters. To carry the hazard, a tee shot of 180+ yards is required, after that a small green waits with two greenside bunkers.
HOLE 17 - PAR 3
The last par 3 on the course that plays slightly longer than the yardage suggests. Threading a tee shot between the two greenside bunkers is required where a green that sits like an up turned bowl waits.
HOLE 2 - PAR 4
A very tight tee shot with a water hazard running up the left hand side of the fairway and Fir trees lining the fairway to the right. With another hazard running across the fairway at 200+ yards, club selection from the tee is vital. Again, a long narrow green waits for an approach shot.
HOLE 4 - PAR 4
A hole that plays uphill with a fairway bunker on the left to avoid from the tee. A hazard runs across the fairway 56 yards from the green that needs to be avoided and the green is guarded by three greenside bunkers.
HOLE 6 - PAR 4
First par 3 on the course plays uphill and plays all its yardage, anything landing short of the green will generally bounce to the left leaving a difficult chip or bunker shot.
HOLE 8 - PAR 3
The shortest hole on the course with a tricky up turned bowl shaped green protected by three greenside bunkers. Club selection is crucial with a two club difference from the front to the back of the green.
HOLE 10 - PAR 4
This par 4 starts the back nine holes and has a wider than normal fairway that runs along the historic ruins of Belhus Mansion. A hazard runs across the fairway at 230+ yards from the tee and a very long and narrow green waits that’s protected by three greenside bunkers.
HOLE 12 - PAR 4
A right to left dogleg hole with a cross hazard to avoid off the tee. The fairway runs along the ruins of Belhus Mansion and the green slopes heavily from back to front with two greenside bunkers.
HOLE 14 - PAR 3
A tricky par 3 that plays slightly uphill with a green that slopes from back to front and is guarded by two greenside bunkers.
HOLE 16 - PAR 5
First par 5 on the course that plays with a narrow tee shot where accuracy is required. There is a small pond on the left hand side of the fairway at 200+ yards from the tee. A tight gap to thread a second shot through will leave a wider fairway for an approach to a green that’s protected by two greenside bunkers.
HOLE 18 - PAR 5
The final hole is a short par 5 that allows a golfer to open their shoulders and attack a tee shot. The fairway narrows nearer to the green, but for the longer hitters there’s a chance to reach the green in two shots. A large green waits that is guarded by three greenside bunkers.

GOLF FOR BEGINNERS
Forward Tee is great for junior golfers and beginners as normal tees on most golf courses are too long and can be daunting. The complexity of each hole still remains identical to normal tees so players can enjoy their round.
If you're new to golf or not as confident as others, then why not come along to Belhus Park Golf & Country Club and the the Forward Tees for yourself!
Forward Tee Coaching is available.
