Key holes

Hole number one on our parkland course is a short par 4 which offers a gentle but challenging introduction to the round with the green providing an uninterrupted view over Lake Tegernsee, the second hole however, challenging as it most certainly is, could never be described as gentle! The tall ancient trees lining the left of the fairway demand a long accurate drive preferably down the right side, the player must then negotiate a huge gully in front of the green before pitching on the sloping putting surface.
After this the golf course is no more than a little undulating, many of the remaining holes being played on a large plateau though some of the holes will ask questions of the players condition!

Hole number 5 is a dogleg left where a little local knowledge comes in rather useful, a good first short is important and the second shot must be well placed to avoid the sand traps guarding the green, leaving here with a par is quite an achievement!
On Hole 6 a long accurate drive favouring the left side of the fairway will leave the player a short iron to a generous green whilst on Hole 7, a 201 metre Par 3, both length and accuracy are demanded and leaving this hole with a Par is a bonus.

The short Par 4 Eighth gives the best view of the Lake whilst making your way to Hole 9, a short but tricky Par 3 which brings us back to the clubhouse.

Hole 10 is a short Par 4 with trouble once again down the left. Behind the green winds the old Saint Quirinus Chapel pathway dated 1828.
On Hole 11 and 12 one must store some confidence up as the Par 5 13th is a potential disaster waiting to happen! A particularly tight tee shot is just the beginning as the second shot must also be perfectly placed to leave an approach to a tricky green where a two-putt is in no way guaranteed!

Tee number 14 is the highest point on the course and demands a carry of 214 metres over a gully, a mental challenge indeed!

Things cool down a little till number 18, a blind dogleg left played downhill with water on the right and the clubhouse on the left, the green guarded by two large sand traps.
