The Cups 9 Hole Course

Course Overview

The Cups Course is a links layout set in rolling dunes and clearly rates amongst the best standalone 9 hole courses in Australia with several magnificent par 3’s and par 4’s. Not only that but The Cups Course has undergone a significant makeover where new tees have been built so you can now play 18 holes! The course is perfect for a quick round for seasoned players and an excellent introduction to the game for juniors and beginners.

As the little sister to the main course we absolutely love it! Its got the same links feel but is a lot more forgiving. The Cups features top quality course design and presentation but the rough is cut down, the bunkers more shallow and the holes shorter.

A highlight of the Cups Course is its downhill par-three 6th hole which plays only 91 metres from the back tee and might be the shortest golf hole in the nation. The 6th/15th hole was voted ‘Best Short Par 3’ in Australia under 100m in length. Another great addition to The Cups Course is the new 5th/14th hole which is a downhill par 3 where you hit into a stunning punch bowl green.

A super fun golf course that is perfect for families and friends! To see hole by hole videos of ‘The Cups’ course, scroll down the page.

Hole 1

/ Par 3

White Tees: 125m | Red Tees: 114m

A short par 3 that can be tricky to hit. Play it safe and aim to the right side of the green as it slopes to the left and in to the middle of the green. The bunker guarding the front of the green is well placed.

Hole 2

/ Par 5

White Tees: 456m | Red Tees: 424m

A heavily bunkered Par 5 that requires precision play. Large bunkers guard the right side of the fairway from the tee so those seeking safety play down the left - but this leaves a longer path home. Small fairway pot bunkers are further up the hole with a large wasteland bunker on the left side of the fairway just near the green. A great hole that does reward those who are brave.

Hole 3

/ Par 4

White Tees: 301m | Red Tees: 277m

A magnificent hole that starts with a drive from an elevated tee down into a valley. The fairway twists around a large dune on the right so the tee shot needs to be positioned well to get a look at the elevated green for your second shot. The approach is very tight as the green is heavily bunkered so if you’re not feeling the love then lay up short and chip it on for your third!

Hole 4

/ Par 4

White Tees: 342m | Red Tees: 340m

The longest par 4 on The Cups which also plays uphill. Getting a good drive away is key as the approach is challenging. The green is guarded by a large dune on the right and bunkers on the left. Make a par 4 here and you’ll be feeling pretty happy with yourself!

Hole 5

/ Par 3

White Tees: 155m | Red Tees: 130m

The Cups features three cracking Par 3’s in the last five holes. The 5th is newly designed Par 3 where distance control is essential. From an elevated tee players fire their tee shot into a punch bowl green. Aim to the left side of the green and work the ball in. A really fun hole to play and lots of different ways to play it.

Hole 6

/ Par 3

White Tees: 64m | Red Tees: 66m

The signature hole on The Cups - rated as the best short Par 3 under 100 metres in Australia. The hole is only 64 metres in length and slopes straight downhill. The elevated tee shot seems easy but the heavy bunkering and undulating green ensure finesse is required, for those who miss the green are very likely to drop a shot. A super fun hole where even the really short hitters have a chance to do something quite remarkable!

Hole 7

/ Par 4

White Tees: 310m | Red Tees: 300m

From the tee it looks tight but there is safety to the right side of the fairway. Hit it left and you are flirting with out of bounds. The approach is tricky, requiring a shot to an elevated green that is heavily bunkered. A good way to approach this green is to hit it left where a large bank will feed the ball back to the middle of the green. A difficult green to putt on as there is a steep slope from back to front. Leave yourself a downhill putt here and a two putt will be a good result!

Hole 8

/ Par 3

White Tees: 155m | Red Tees: 125m

Another Par 3 that requires absolute precision. Played uphill along a ridge line with commanding views of the main Dunes course. Miss it right off the tee and you are in a world of pain down a steep bank. The green is surrounded by bunkers but there is a gap at the front of the green where you can run your ball up. Try to leave your ball below the hole as this green also heavily slopes from back to front.

Hole 9

/ Par 4

White Tees: 320m | Red Tees: 300m

A great downhill Par 4 to finish off your round. Everywhere but left off the elevated tee is good. The approach shot needs to be carefully executed as there is a bank on the left side of the undulating green and a small pot bunker which is extremely difficult to get up and down from. Best play is to aim for the right centre of the green and the ball will feed left to the middle. This hole plays shorter than you think and is a lot of fun to play.
