Golf Australia Express : GA Express 271
daunting as you address the ball with a mid-iron in your hands. Described by Peter Thomson as a “national treasure”, the 165-metre 11th is a standout as Yarra Yarra’s most revered hole. It is a daunting proposition that demands precise club selection, pinpoint accuracy and a steady nerve with the putter. The green, which sits diagonally left-front to right-back to your approach, screams out for a perfectly controlled shot that moves from left-to-right. The three-tiered putting surface is one of the most dramatically contoured on the Sandbelt and the bunkers at the front are a wonderful example of the best work of Russell and Mick Morcom. The 15th hole, like the 11th, is a fabulous one-shotter where, again, the emphasis is placed on the player to judge the wind and select the correct club for the pin position of the day. The 145-metre hole can demand a well- struck long iron be played on windy days and even then, if you find the green, the job is nowhere near done. A steep arcing tier cutting through the middle of the putting surface creates two distinct levels. If the flag is on the lower front level, you will curse a ball settling on the higher back half of the green because putting from here is far more difficult than an escape from one of the deep greenside bunkers.
