If anyone sees a hacker driving around this course with multiple A4size prints of this thread stuck on his buggy's windscreen, it's gotta be me! Very Happy

Lee,
You da man!

AccidentalGolfer, you crack me up dude. Thanks for the nice compliment. It's always nice to be appreciated.

Michelle, thanks also for your lovely compliments. I considered starting this thread in the golf course section, but I found out only moderators can start a thread there. I saw the Glenmarie thread, and found out it ended with a sombre warning on the locker there. I did not want to withdraw attention from that; I think members should know about it. And since I wanted to focus on a discussion on course management as a whole rather than a review of how a specific course played, I decided to start the thread here. I'll be adding my experience on this topic from the various courses I play, so this thread will grow with a focus on course management, not specific to a particular course. That's the plan anyways.... BTW, how does one go about moving a thread to another location? I searched but couldn't find the button...

Hole 10

Red 289
Index 4
Par 4

OK, coffee break over. With renewed energy, we forge on.



Another lovely hole with a beautiful view from the tee box. Plenty of water, but it's not a real cause for concern if your driver is reliable. Choose the landing point wisely. Because of the dog leg, your next approach shot distance can vary quite a bit. Going a bit more left is ok (and even better if you're long) because as usual, the slope will kick it back down. Going right is risky, but is rewarded with a shorter approach, as long as you stay out of the bunker and water. Just remember your next shot will be on a down slope, so take a higher lofted club.

It is an index 4 hole, so plan your approach carefully to land at pin height or below. Else the multi-leveled green can be tricky.

I got caught in the greenside bunker, took me two strokes to get out, and did a 7. Not nice....

Lee,

Nice work to the picture and great analysis on the strategy, your hard work will attract more people to visit the course, go and get some rewards from Glenmarie though.. Laughing

Anyway, you are a truly asset of this forum and the effort you spend sure wouldn't go unnoticed.

Long and straight, hug the trees on the left to avoid the right bunkers. Easiest green on the course, so should be able to get par or birdie.

Again, the green is not biting. I got bogey as usual. Gotta improve my putting, darn it, or aim to land short and let it roll on.

Thanks Christvh. Just trying to put something back into the game that's given me so much. Cool

A mid-length upslope hole, teasing you to take the driver. There's a nice bunker waiting for you if you get the distance wrong. Do the smart thing and lay up with a 3-wood. Your next approach shot should be on nicely. Remember, the green doesn't bite, so land short.

And in order to do a bump and run up to the green, you need to be on the right. Watch out for the bunkers there though.

Why didn't this occur to me while I was playing? That's why I did a double-bogey. Darn.

I must learn to think on my feet during a game. That's why course management is important. You can save some strokes just by planning ahead.

I see your point there...no worries, just ignore my comments earlier and continue with whatever you are doing now. Should you need to move this thread to another site, there isn't any button to do this...you can only reply as "this thread has been moved to XXX (give us the link)"

Alternatively, guide the readers at "Glenmarie Golf Course" to this thread by typing a note there and put up the link. Both ways work fine I think Smile

Go left and your putt will be uphill, much better. If you pull, the slope will kick it back down. But measure your distance carefully to overshoot into the bunker.

I duffed my shot and made a bogey.

This hole will test both your driving accuracy and length.

Can you do a fade? This is what the hole calls for. The trees on the right are mature, and tend to catch the straight shots. Keep left, but watch for the slopes. A 3-wood might be a safer bet here, but you'll have a longer 2nd shot as this hole is quite long. Decisions, decisions. Who says driving is not as important as the short game? You gotta get to the green first.

Managed to get a bogey here. Luckily my driver has settled down.

The course map is out dated, and they've enlarged the left bunker to trap you tee off, so watch out for it.

Again, I would aim right to get a clear approach to the non-biting green to try a bump and run up. This is the 2nd most difficult hole and you're going to need all the help you can get. If you approach from the center, with the glassy green, there's little chance of holding on.

I found this out the hard way. My approach shot was right on the target line, landed before the hole, but it rolled off anyway. Got a double bogey. Darn those slippery greens!

This is another gorgeous looking hole. It slopes down menacingly to broad body of water, and you've got to carry that watery valley to get to the green on the other side. But it's harmless if you negotiate it correctly.

First, look for the distance marker right down the center line. That's the 100m marker. Aim for that with a 3-wood (it's sloping down, remember.) From there, it's an easy PW or 9iron to the green. If in doubt, use the 9 iron, and let the slope catch you if you overshoot. But chipping back down requires a good touch.

I took a 9 iron, overshot the green, and chipped into gimme distance. My first par for the day!

Par 3



This is another beautiful and intimidating hole that tests your nerve. It's a par 3 that needs to carry another deep watery valley.

Whatever you do, don't leave it short as it's quite an uphill slope, difficult to judge your chip. Go long, and the slope will limit the damage.

I've concluded the green is actually level to the tee box because I took a 3-hybrid and it landed true to my hybrid distance of around 180m. Which of course meant that I overshot it.

Being an index 6, the green was quite lumpy, and I had to chip delicately on to one of those lumps and roll it back down. The ball hit the flagstick and stayed within inches of the hole. I was ecstatic with my 2nd par of the day on this 6th hardest hole and did my best TW impression. This is why I LOVE this game!
