Hole 7 - The Gums (par 4)

(White 378m stroke 1 Yellow 288m stroke 10)

White Tee Sponsored by: Hayes Engineering.  Yellow Tee Sponsored by Opotiki Pharmacy

Dog leg right across water hazard from elevated tee, large trees guard left corner. A good drive across the right hand side corner (wall of large bamboo) can make this hole shorter, but stray right and the ball is out of bounds. Stay out of the orchard! Oval green with gentle slope left to right.


Hole 8 - Sunny's (par 4)

(White 283m stroke 9 Yellow 283m stroke 9 )

Sponsored by: Waiotahi Contractors

Fairway slopes gently upwards, large conifers guard the right. A long narrow green, sited on a plateau, a challenge to reach the pin when positioned at back but a 'messy' end for those that over club.


Hole 9 - Hikutaia (par 5)

(White 417m stroke 11 Yellow 417m stroke 3)

Sponsored by: Eastland Pacific Motor Lodge

Mature trees guard both sides of fairway, pohutukawa trees on left give magnificent flower display in November/ December. Fairway slopes from middle to right into stand of pines along edge of hill for first half. A nasty slice will likely mean playing down the 14th to the bottom of the hill and then across the internal out of bounds to the green back up the hill. Internal out of bounds along right for those that stray on second shot and on approach shot to green. Ball feeds down to green from slope on left.


Hole 10 - 1st View (par 5 ladies, par 4 men)

(White 390m stroke 2 Yellow 390m stroke 11)

Sponsored by: Magnus Lennie Motors

Straight down, mature trees both sides, with fairway sloping left to right. Enjoy the magnificent view with smoking White Island out to sea. Good sized green but can be tricky to hold your ball sloping right to left.


Hole 11 - The Drag (par 5)

(White 433m stroke 14 Yellow 399m stroke 2 )

White Tee Sponsored by: Watson S & R Contracting Ltd.  Yellow Tee Sponsored by Mitre 10 Opotiki

Deceptively easy hole, fairway sloping left, until final third when a ball too far left will have you playing the 6th (the Donga) all over again! Good size green with slope from right to towards the front left corner.


Hole 12 - Up & Over (par 4)

(White 335m stroke 8 Yellows 314m stroke 4 )

Sponsored by: Opotiki Drainlayers Ltd

Straight up and over the hill to the green situated only metres from out of bounds on left. Out of bounds all down left hand side, but longer hitters should stay in the middle as a good drive to the right may find the internal out of bounds area (marked by the tall tree visible at about 2 O’clock).
