Dendro – Par 37 (blue : 3197m, white : 2852m, red : 2522m)

Hole 1 – Par 5 (blue : 515m, white : 476m, red : 414m)

Mid
length par 5 starting hole with a slight dog leg left after the tee
shot. For those playing off blue, bunker in play on the left around
180m and trees on the right. Typically, i will play my 3w/5w to the right of the left bunkers.

2nd shot is relatively straight
forward towards the green but players needs to bear in mind that the
fairway slope to the right so better to aim for the left side of the
fairway. Long hitters needs to be careful of bunkers on the left around
80m from the green to catch those that aims to far left. I will select my clubs to reach the 100m-120m marker to avoid this bunker.

Green
is slightly elevated, longish and undulating and protected in the front
by 2 deep bunkers on each side. (Green is something similar to the one
on the first hole of Warren GCC). Depending on where the ball lands and
pin position, breaks can be very severe.

Hole 2 – Par 4 (blue : 325m, white : 304m, red :271m)

Dog
leg left par 4. Right side OB/hazard depending on where the ball goes
through. There is a coconut tree on the left centre of the fairway
before it turns left. Short hitters would aim right of the tree whereas
the long hitters will aim right of it (sort of tigerline). For long
hitters, there is a bunker on the right side around 100m marker which
would be in play. I will also play my 3w to the right of the coconut tree to avoid the right bunker. This hole rolls downhill, thus 3w will leave one about a Pw to the green

2nd shot into the green would either be
ranging from 6 iron to pitching wedge depending on how long is the tee
shot. Green is slightly diagonal and protected by bunkers on front
right and left. Unless close to pin, it would be a easy 2 putts. If
you hit too long, the back of the green slopes down severely and you
will have a tricky chip back into the green. Not much break on the green
unless you are on the upper end.

Hole 3 – Par 5 (blue : 574m, white :451, red 401m)

This
is the longest par 5 in OCC. Relatively straight forward though
fairway is protected by bunkers that will affect both long and short
hitters. A number of players have contributed generously to buy jugs of
beer or watermelon for not crossing the red tee. Most of us would go
for the green in 4 rather than in 3 shots unless you are in luck and you
are able to hit your tee , 2nd and 3rd shot flush. (note : this does
not applies to long hitters) Aim driver left of the right side bunker for more fairway.

There is a pond in front of the blue
tee whereas the white and red tee boxes are by the right side. There is
also a flower bed on the right after the pond. You need about 160m to
clear the pond. For long hitter, there is a bunker on the right again
which could come in play.

2nd shot, you would normally take a 3
wood or 5 wood. Whilst the tee shot is straight forward, you need to
pick you landing spot as the fairway in the middle slots to the left
into a bunker. Anything that gives u 120-150m to the green is a good layup for your approach.

3rd shot would be placement shot for the short
hitter. Fairway slopes heavily into the left and you need to aim to the
right where it is level or if it catches the slope, you will still be
in the left side of the fairway. For the long hitters, most would be
using a mid to long iron into the green.
4th shot is normally is a
sand/approach wedge in. Green is long and protected by bunkers on the
front left (deep) and right (2 bunkers). Back of the green slopes down
severely as well. Relatively straight putts and the breaks are not too
difficult to read. If blue pin, avoid going long, u will have a challenging chip up onto the green. Need to go pin low of the flagstick. Just like Hole 2.

Hole 4 – Par 3 (blue : 174m, white : 149m, red :113m)

Par
3 with bunkers on front left and side right. Green is elevated and
like a slight down leg left and will slope very fast at the back. Most
players aim for centre of the green and if not, would try to play short
and chip in. Back of the green after the buggy track is OB. No matter
what, try not to get into the bunker on the right as the size of the
bunker is as big if not bigger than the green. If you do get in, have
fun in the beach there.

Green is a killer here with very severe
breaks. If the pin is at the back and strength and breaks are not
judged properly, you can putt out of the green.

Hole 5 – Par 4 (blue : 367m, white : 335m, red : 295m)

Dog
leg right par 4. Bunker on the right side of the fairway at around
190m from blue tee. Fairway is level till that bunker where it will
slot to the right. Another fairway bunker on the left at just pass the
150m marker.

Longer hitters will normally go over the right
bunkers where it will slope down to the 100m markers and it will be a
easy 9i/wedge distance for them depending on where the ball stop. For
the short hitters, most will aim for the fairway left of the right
bunker and use a wood or long iron into the green. If you land in the
rough before the right bunker, you can still go for a tigerline into the
green but trees lining the fairway and buggy track on the right will be
in play.

Green is again slightly elevated and protected by
bunkers on the front left, side right and back. Once on, the green is
just slightly undulating and normally would be a easy 2 putts.

Hole 6 – Par 5 (blue : 437, white : 414m, red : 388m)

Short
par 5. Water cut across the fairway at around 260m from the blue tee.
From the tee boxes, the fairway goes uphill and slope down to the
water. Big fairway bunker on the left and a smaller one on the right.
Long hitters can normally go for the green in 2 if their drives goes to
roll down to the edge of the water. A normal drive would comes in
between the 2 bunkers. A mid/long iron or wood would be required to
cross the water. I dun cheong for 2 on on this hole. Just play my 3w right of the left bunker. With the driver, your ball might caught the slopes n run into the water.

After the water, a longish bunker runs along the
left side of the fairway and water on the extremely right side (usually
not in play unless you slice badly. Just play a short iron to reach your comfortable distance for your approach onto the green.

Approach in is normally a
short iron as the green is protected by bunkers left, right and back
(left is long deep bunker and trust me, you do not want to go in there).
Longish green with slight undulation but normally 2 putts will do
(some says 3).

Hole 7 – Par 4 (blue : 349m, white : 314m, red 282m)

Straight
par 4 that goes uphill and then downhill to a sloping green. Bunkers on
the right at the 150m marker and left (down slope) just before the 100m
marker. Depending on whether you catches the slope, For 2nd shots, 7w
to pitching wedge can be used to attack the green.
Green is protected
by bunkers on the left and right again. The right bunker runs almost
the length of the green. The front of the green slopes upward to the
middle and then slope downs. Tricky putt if the ball is at one end of
the green and the pin the other end.

Hole 8 – Par 3 (blue : 170m, white : 142m, red : 112m)

Straight
Par 3 into a long green. Green is protected by bunkers on the right
and the bunker on the left runs the length of the green. Water is also
on the right and in play if you hook your ball. The green slope upwards
from front to back. Breaks are relatively easy to read on this green.

Hole 9 – Par 4 (blue: 286m, white : 267m, red : 246m)

Short
par 4 that goes uphill to an elevated green. Water just right in front
of teebox and you need only about 100m to clear. Bunkers on the right
at around the 100m marker and 50m to front of green. Trees lining the
left side of the fairway after the first bunker and will be in play if
you land there.

Average hitter will hit to around the 100m
marker and use either a 9i or wedge into the green. Green is protected
by bunkers on both the left (very very deep) and right. Slight
undulation on the green but breaks can be tricky.


just my input, sorry it took so long, just managed to find our scorecard with all the info....

Slinger, thanks for the update. From the way you describe your shots, I would think you must be a long hitter. Easier, most of the clubs you select, I would normally use clubs that are 1 - 2 clubs longer just to reach your distance! affraid

Hope we have a game soon! Beer

I would say slinger is not that long compared to the real boom boys (e.g. chipmunk, sham, zx) but he's about 1-2 clubs longer than the rest of us bad boys...where he's really strong is his consistency.....he's like a 'ball whisperer'...it goes where he tells it to go....of all the premier premier league players, i think he is the one the rest of us should emulate since the reality is that we'll never have rex's length or capt's combo of short game magic and mental focus......

Sigh, that means my take is all wrong, I have to use 1 - 2 clubs longer when playing with you on the same distance and you are 2 clubs longer than Slinger, that means I would need about 3 - 4 clubs longer. Is there any extra long drivers in the market? What a Face

GF, I don't call those guys long, I call it frightening.. tongue

True, that's why he's my shifu. He really prepared me for the lo hei game and I play more steady after the sessions at Kranji. If only Kranji Sun AM green fee were not so ex, I'd pay the "tuition fee" so can improve like Kian.
