Seeka Industries - 1st

From our first tee you get a view straight down our course and out onto the Tauranga Harbour. A good starting hole requiring a nicely placed tee shot down the left side for a clear approach to the green, trees left and right.  Protected by one bunker on the left, the modest green slopes from back to front.  Not an easy read.  Average Score Men 5.46 Average Score Women 5.88.

craig king elec




Electrical NZ - 2nd

A gentle par 5 often reachable for the big hitters, best drive down the centre to right side to avoid the left hand trees. Lay up area is quite generous but avoid the bunker on the left. A good size green again sloping from back to front, try to stay under the hole. Average Score Men 6.27 Average Score Women 6.98.

Naked Meats - 3rd

One of the toughest par 4's on the course, an accurate drive required with trees left & water right. The raised green is protected by bunkers left and right and drops off sharply to the right. Average Score Men 5.55 Average Score Women 5.96.


ACRE PC - 4th

Shortest par 3 on the course.  Don't be fooled by the green, it's a lot longer than it looks from the tee with a bunker to the left and water if you are short.  Club selection important. Average Score Mens 3.72 Average Score Womens 4.03.


Omokoroa Pharmacy - 5th 

Potentially reachable par 5 with a good tee shot, good players should be looking for a birdie here. Generous driving area but OB left & water right can distract. Hole narrows towards the green making approach shots difficult, but a relatively easy putting surface. Average Score Men 6.01 Average Score Women 6.87.




Omokoroa Country Estate - 6th

A good short hole usually a mid to long iron or utility wood.  Water immediately off the tee, but hopefully not in play.  A large greenside bunker to the right & a run off to the left making quite a tricky green to hit. Green slopes back to front being more severe nearer the back. Average Score Men 4.01 Average Score Women 4.31.



Might look quite an easy but big numbers can be made here. A short par 4 with water all the way down the right and also to the left for the long hitters off the tee. Water in play to the right of the green and OB beyond the green.  Shot selection for approach is important.  Average Sore Men 5.05 Average Score Women 5.64. 


Bethlehem Butchery - 8th

Quite a tough par 4 with a good carry required off the tee over water.  OB left & trees to the right, accuracy required to hit the fairway. Club selection important for approach, as distance is difficult to judge. A gentle unprotected green, but beware the beach all the way down the left!! Average Score Men 5.25 Average Score Women 5.93.



 Claridges Real Estate - 9th

Excellent driving hole here with thick trees left & right for most leaving a slightly longer shot into a raised green. Very tricky green with strong slopes.  A must to stay beneath the hole. Average Score Men 5.34 Average Score Women 5.64.



A shorter par 4 and may only require a long iron or utility wood needed off the tee.  Trees on the left and OB to the right but a generous fairway leading to a narrow entrance for the green with a bunker short right. A nice subtle green. Good players will be looking for birdie here. Average Score Men 5.00 Average Score Women 5.64.



JC Golf Tauranga - 11th

A short par 3 to a two tiered green which is protected by bunkers left and right.  Can be a difficult second shot if you stray too far with your tee shot.  Average Score Men 4.09 Average Score Women 4.10.


Freshchoice Omokoroa - 12th

A long par 5 for even the big hitters its usually a three shot hole, a creek all the way down the left but quite a forgiving hole. The green slopes from back to front again not an easy one to read. Average Score Men 6.42 Average Score Women 6.86.






Gartshore - 13th

Nearly the toughest hole on the course.  Not too long but does require accuracy off the tee for a better approach to a small very sloping difficult green. A hard target to hit with a very severe run off left towards a pond.  Watch the slopes when putting. Average Score Men 5.42 Average Score Women 5.95.

bethlehem pharmacy



Bethlehem Pharmacy - 14th

A straight hole with two very well placed fairway bunkers to catch your drive & quite a small green with a bunker front right. Another back to front slope on the green here making it difficult; be more cautious on this hole than you think! Average Score Men 5.13 Average Score Women 5.86.

Da Vinci Clinic - 15th Hole

A dogleg left so requires a well placed tee shot to the centre right of the fairway for a good approach to the green.  Trees and water to the left make this hazardous, but not impossible to get over the trees.  OB down the right side and also beyond the very gentle green.  Average Score Men 5.23 Average Score Women 5.70. 

omokoroa carriers





Omokoroa General Carriers - 16th

Another dogleg left with a fairway bunker protecting the left side. Stay centre right off the tee.  Quite a small deceptive green with a large bunker on the right. Average Score Men 5.22 Average Score Women 5.87.

Bethlehem Motor Inn - 17th Hole

A nice short hole with OB behind the green creeping closer on the left side.  A pulled shot can end up on the beach! No bunkers here & quite a flat green. Average Score Men 3.83 Average Score Women 4.14.



 Webber Refrigeration & Air Conditioning - 18th

A finishing par 5.  A creek running the full length down the left side. A generous fairway & a large green which can host some great pin positions. The green has a McKenzie step on the left which raises that side & with bunkers left & right can play very tricky; but a birdie chance here if played well. Average Score Men 6.30 Average Score Women 7.07.
