1: 7th hole in Corballis
I think this is a brilliant short (shock horror) par 4. From the members tee box it is a super intimidating tee shot. There is a barber pole as an aim point which I think can land you into trouble if you hit the wrong club or go even slightly right of it. The approach shot assuming you have found the fairway is pure drama. The green is build into the side of a dune so the ball has to be carried all the way there which when the wind is blowing makes for a shapely shapely shot. The green is small with a significant enough shelf to make it a tricky enough 2 putt, also so you need to be on your number

About 4 tee boxes there.

It's one of the holes where playing off the back tees will actually help you I find, more landing area for the driver. Toughest hole I've played with the most aesthetically pleasing tee shot you'll see

It's a great hole from the back tees. From the front tee I think the tee shot is too easy. You're talking 140m to a large landing area. But from the back tees it's probably about 170/180m to where you want to land. And with it often having a cross wind that is particularly penal to people who play a fade (slice), that landing area becomes a lot smaller. The second shot is fraught with danger too - basically you can't be short, long, left or right. And with a big wind that is not easy.

3: 5th at Carne - Kilmore course
Genius hole which completely perplexed me when I played it in the summer for the first time and on my own. Fell for the trap of going thru the dunes rather than over the side of biggest dune you could think of. I think I shot an 8, could have been a 9 but it was so much fun to play. Really bloody cool that one of the architects (if not the man himself) frequents these boards
