Welcome to Links at St Anne’s. Original creation and design by Allen Liddicoat, this links-inspired golf course features a combination of penal, strategic, and risk/reward holes routed through a natural environment of woodlands, native grasses, ponds, and wetlands. The serene beauty of the ever-changing landscape compliments the diverse challenges encountered throughout the round. With 5 sets of tees, every golfer may choose his or her poison. Greens angled to the line of play, cunning hazard placement, variable winds, and deceptive alternatives test golfers of all abilities with a variety of shot options. Let the journey begin with a unique and memorable experience.
Hole #1 – First
A well struck drive favoring the bunkered right side of this uphill dogleg right par 4 that plays through a tapered valley will leave an unobstructed approach to a raised diagonal humpback green surrounded by collection areas.
Hole #2 – Cove
Nestled in a sheltered cove surrounded by grass covered knolls, the first of St Anne’s brilliant Par 3’s plays downhill over a pond to a wide but shallow green that slopes back to front and right to left.
Hole #3 – Cape
To attack this long Par 4, an uphill drive over a ridge favoring the water protected left side of this undulating right to left sloped fairway is ideal. The approach is over water to a huge free form green set between intimidating bunkers front and back.
Hole #4 – Isaacs
This long par 3 plays over water to a large push up multi level green flanked by a huge rear sand bunker and deep front right grass bunker.
Hole #5 – Dog Leg
The first of Links at St Anne’s magnificent par 5’s is a sharp dog leg left that demands a well struck tee shot over wetlands to a generous fairway protected by 2 strategically placed bunkers. A well placed second shot to a tight landing area with water right and long leaves a short challenging approach to a small undulating green buffered by water front and right.
Hole #6 – Broadway
This mid length Par 4 returns to the clubhouse. Featuring a wide common fairway with #18, the preferred tee shot up the water protected right side leaves an open second to a steeply elevated back to front sloping green.
Hole #7 – Eastward Ho
This long par 4 with a generous fairway requires an accurate drive to avoid the right center bunker and water right. The approach calls for a long iron over a wide grass hollow to a back to front sloped raised putting surface guarded by water right.
Hole #8 – Short
The shortest par 3, set in a secluded inlet encircled by native grasses, requires a precise short iron to an elevated skewed plateau green defended by water and sand right with rough depressions left and rear.
Hole #9 – Long
The longest of the Par 5’s begins with an uphill drive that favors the left side of this generous fairway. The second must negotiate a 2 tiered diagonal fairway to a generous landing area positioned between a strategically placed bunker, native grass covered mounds left and natural barranca right. The 3rd to the multi level rolling green must carry a deep ravine front and right.
Hole #10 – Elm
The back nine begins with one of the most intimidating, yet picturesque Par 4’s on the course. A well placed drive to this island fairway that avoids the bunker left and barranca right leaves a short iron to a left to right terraced green perched high above the fairway framed by 2 large Elm trees left and a steep cliff front, back and right.
Hole #11 – Oak
In the shadow of the Elms protecting the #10 green are the elevated tees that provide a panoramic view of this diabolical Par 5. A drive that challenges the right side fairway bunker leaves an open look for a layup that must navigate a majestic oak in the left center of the fairway that is 40 yards short of the wetland fronting the green. The 3rd to an oval undulating putting surface cut in a hillside is further defended by deep bunkers front left, right and rear.
Hole #12 – Narrows
This uphill Par 4 carved from a narrow ravine flanked by hillocks of native grass tests both accuracy and distance. A drive short, around or over a diagonal fairway bunker leaves a relatively short approach to a multi tiered green ringed by 5 deep rugged bunkers.
Hole #13 – Westward Ho
The longest of the Par 3’s plays through a shallow depression of native grasses to a wide left to right canted green protected by steep slopes front and a menacing rear bunker.
Hole #14 – Plateau
A drive favoring the bunker guarded left side of this long Par 4 leaves the safest downhill approach to a kidney shaped green set on a peninsula surrounded by water.
Hole #15 – Eden
Tucked in an isolated hollow among steep faced grass covered hills, the final Par 3 requires a mid iron over water to a narrow contoured green guarded by bunkers front and back.
Hole #16 – Lagoon
This long Par 4 is the most challenging hole at Links at St Anne’s. A blind downhill drive favoring the right center of this left to right sloping fairway must avoid a stream right and pond long. The second shot over water to an elevated back to front sloping green protected by a cavernous front bunker is one of golf’s most heroic carries.
Hole #17 – Serpent
The shortest of the Par 5’s plays over a contoured fairway that weaves through a peninsula surrounded by water on 3 sides and massive native grass covered hillocks left. A drive down the left center of the fairway rewards the player with either a long approach over water to reach the green or a layup over water for a challenging third. The small back to front sloping green is sandwiched between deep bunkers left and right and wetlands rear.
Hole #18 – Home
This long Par 4 plays over water to a diagonal fairway shared with #6. A well placed drive left of center that avoids the water left leaves an approach to a kidney shaped green defended by water front and 3 rear bunkers.
