Hole #1 at Southern Highlands Golf Club

The fifth hole is a short, 335-yard, par 4 that dares players to fire at the green from the tee. However, to do so, you must carry water all the way. The more prudent will use a long-iron or fairway wood from the tee and be left with a short pitch to the green.

Though the par-3 eighth hole is only 167 yards, the combination of water and sand in front of the green can make its length a bit deceiving. Club selection is critical. Trust the yardage book and make your mistakes long. Short is trouble.

Hole #10 at Southern Highlands Golf Club

Hole #12 at Southern Highlands Golf Club

Hole #17 at Southern Highlands is one of the most challenging par 3's you're likely to face. It's 217 yards from the back tee with water flowing from here all the way around the peninsula green. Sand protects the front right and front left green so there's not much room for error.

The finishing hole is the longest on the course, a massive 622-yard, par 5. The fairway is bisected by a stream. Playing the hole uphill and to the left is more dangerous but presents a shorter route and a better shot into the green. Taking the low road to the right will keep you out of trouble most of the way, but leaves you with a blind shot across water to the green. The choice is all yours.
