Hole #1

Hole #1

This elevated tee offers a great view of how the first Hole should be played. Power hitters will favor the right side as the approach to the green will offer a better entry to a sloping green from back left to front right.

Few obstacles but a good position will simplify things on this long opening hole.

Hole #2

A raised fairway 200 yards creates a blind tee shot. Long hitters must beware of the ditch crossing the fairway 100 yards from the green, as must those that have not reached the top of the hill with their tee shots. An elevated and undulating green, very well protected by deep bunkers makes this a difficult hole to score on and one of the highest scoring hole to par on the course. The right side obstacles are more in play then they look!

Hole #3

This short par three used to have two small greens that were played in alternation. The present, bigger green is very sinuous and is well protected by many bunkers. A short but challenging par three. And beware! The wind will certainly be a factor to contend with!

Hole #4

Hole #4

On the card, this beautiful hole looks to be a birdy hole for low handicap players. But here again, the wind is a factor and the bunkers demand a very precise tee shot. Furthermore, the raised green keeps the playing surface out of sight and makes it difficult to gage the approach shot properly. Long hitters might be tempted to try for the green on their tee shot.

Hole #5

Hole #5

This dog leg left demands two good shots to attempt the green from the elevated tee. Huge trees protect the corner and will force you to hit a right to left second shot if you are not in the proper position on the fairway. A marked ‘’false front’’ demands a longer shot on the approach. Notice the magnificent tree that backs the green.

Hole #6

Hole #6

The first of two par five, precision more than distance is a prerequisite. Strategic bunkers await on every shot. Beware the out of bonds that borders the whole right side as well as the back of the green. The prevailing wind is always against the player and affects both trajectory and distance. The approach to the green is easier from the right side.

Hole #8

Hole #8

As the road is still on your right hand side of the hole, so is the out of bounds. Stay up or go down in the left valley? Makes no difference to the long hitter who will use the huge tree at the back of the green to guide is approach shot to the green. For the shorter hitter, the second shot should carry over the lower fairway and leave him with an approach shot to an open green. A feature well remembered by those who play Kanawaki. First of Kanawaki’s two holes with no water hazard.

Hole #9

A long or very long par 3, this is Kanawaki’s signature hole. The green is located in a large depression. Aim for the bench overlooking the green as everything slopes to the left side. If your tee shot bounces once (only once!) in the fairway, you should reach the green. Limiting your puts to only two is easier said than done! Last hole with no water in play.

Another long par four starts us off on the back side. Out-of-bounds and bunkers on both sides demand a precise tee shot. The shot to the green is a blind one but don’t look for bunkers around the green: there are none. The approach is much easier from the right side.

Hole #13

According to many members, this is one of the prettiest holes at Kanawaki. This long par 4 intercepted by a ditch some 100 yards from the green, threatens golfers with deep bunkers, lateral water hazards near the green and a very deep green hard to subdue. From the middle of the fairway, glancing back will let you see the clubhouse and its beautiful ‘’Bird Cage’. The second nine’s highest differential hole.

This dog leg to the right is made harder by the numerous threes bordering the right side of the hole. Should you be far enough to go for the green on your second shot, make sure you have the correct yardage and stay out of those bunkers that will quickly grab any errant shot.

Hole #15

Hole #15

One of the more controversial holes at Kanawaki. Some members would like to add some 40 yards to this par four. Others consider it as having all the tools to make this one of the most deceitful holes on the course. Out-of-bounds on the right side; lateral water hazards right and left; a ditch some 50 yards in front of the green; a funnel shaped reception area for the drives and an undulating green protected by bunkers, the out-of-bounds, the hazard and a swirling undetectable wind have changed players’ hopes in many championships and cost a few dollars to some betting players.

Hole #16

This rolling par 5 is the longest hole on the course. Wider landing area for the long driver, the shorter players will have to contend with bunkers as the fairway turns on the second shot. The wind always plays a big part in assessing the approach to this well bunkered green sloping severely from back to front. 2 putts is a good average on this green. And don’t forget the lateral water hazards on both sides of this fairway!

Hole #18

Yes, you have already reached the 18th hole! One of the toughest and prettiest finishing holes, the 18th offers a spectacular view of the clubhouse. This elevated green, protected by big bunkers on the upslope leading to the green demands a careful club selection to reach it…and stay on it. Beware the shot that will take you over the green; remember the old Kanawaki saying: ‘’Eventually you will have an uphill put. Better sooner than later!’’
