18 holes of Terre Blanche by Raphaël Jacquelin

In the following pages, he provides us with some advice to avoid the potential traps of this challenging 18 hole and 6616 meter golf course.


X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°1

Hole nº 1 Par 5

488 m
456 m
437 m
409 m

"A very good par 5 to start. It's important to not be too much on the right side to hit the tee shot and not be bothered by the tree located close to the bunker on the right. Take one more club to attack the green due to the riding view."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°2

Hole nº 2 Par 3

 167 m
 151 m
 138 m
 86 m

"This Par 3 is difficult, a long and upward climb. Avoid absolutely the left side. Aim at the right side of the green because the slope often brings back the ball to the pin."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°3

Hole nº 3 Par 4

 427 m
 397 m
 380 m
 360 m

"Very long par 4 but you must avoid a long tee shot. Usually 3 wood is enough but anyway there is a long attack to the green."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°4

Hole nº 4 Par 4

 422 m
 398 m
 375 m
 311 m

"Beautiful view from the start. The objective is to hit the tee shot by avoiding the bunker on the right. The attack of the green must be precise because it is rolling and then putting becomes very complicated."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°5

Hole nº 5 Par 4

 406 m
 377 m
 348 m
 312 m

"I advise to choose a 3 wood to start and stay short of the bunker. If you hesitate between two clubs to attack the green, you should use the shorter club because behind the green, “it’s over!”

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°6

Hole nº 6 Par 5

 512 m
 492 m
 475 m
 422 m

"A great hole: with a long drive you can attack the green in two by favoring a drive on the right side. If the drive is not long enough, play the second shot in front of the water from the left side and then produce a wedge shot to achieve a birdie".

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°7

Hole nº 7 Par 3

 147 m
 125 m
 114 m
 106 m

This Par 3, short, blind hole on an elevated green. If the ball is not close enough to the hole, the 3 putts come fast..."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°8

Hole nº 8 Par 4

 357 m
 322 m
 296 m
 273 m

"One of my favorite holes. It's not specifically long and a tee shot with a hybrid is often enough but the attack of the green is very important to do a birdie. If you don't find the right playing area you can lose a putt."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°9

Hole nº 9 Par 4

 367 m
 336 m
 308 m
 298 m

"The tee shot is crucial in order to place the ball between the bunkers and then attack a short shot to the green. The green is quite long so choose your club carefully for the second shot."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°10

Hole nº 10 Par 4

 398 m
 372 m
 360 m
 235 m

"Again a nice hole! Two different strategies: play short towards the bunker on the right side, it will allow you to do a long second shot above the water or hit a long drive between bunker on the right and the one at the bottom. In this case the second shot will be easier in a defended and hilly green.”

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°11

Hole nº 11 Par 5

 463 m
 450 m
 432 m
 412 m

"Birdie hole and also an eagle one if you take the risk to play with the driver by avoiding the water barrier on the left. I think a lot of professional players will be able to reach the green with an iron as the second shot.”"

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°12

Trou nº 12 Par 4

 343 m
 322 m
 308 m
 282 m

“The tee shot is relatively simple but watch out to the pin’ position when the pin is deep on the right side of the green.”

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°13

Hole nº 13 Par 3

 201 m
 182 m
 165 m
 123 m

"The hole is long so the most simple strategy is to play at the beginning of the green on the right. You must avoid the left side because a succession of bunkers makes the par very difficult."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°14

Hole nº 14 Par 5

 201 m
 182 m
 165 m
 123 m

"Again a birdie par 5 if you do a perfect shot from the start by softly cutting the dogleg on the right. If it's not the case, play a second shot to hit a full wedge. Be careful to not give too much ball' spin on the attack of the green. The ball could roll down in the hazard."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°15

Trou nº 15 Par 4

 359 m
 339 m
 320 m
 296 m

"This left dogleg needs a right tee shot to get great view on this dangerous green. Three putts are usual if the pin is placed on the bottom right part of the green."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°16

Hole nº 16 Par 3

 143 m
 121 m
 107 m
 86 m

"A small par 3 that can bring about a few bogeys if the ball isn't perfectly touched with a wedge or a 9 iron. It's better if you choose another club to hit the ball to avoid the water barrier. A very hilly green from the back to the front."

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°17

Trou nº 17 Par 4

 380 m
 367 m
 353 m
 340 m

"A dangerous hole which may have a lot of bogeys. A long and precise tee shot is required. The greatest dangers, a very hilly course on the left and the forest that attract the balls on both sides! To attack the green choose your club carefully to finish on the right playing area.”

X
Terre Blanche Golf - Hole N°18

Hole nº 18 Par 4

 402 m
 373 m
 357 m
 317 m

"Closing hole! A good start is necessary to attack the green as short as possible because the pin’ position is unforgiving with an inaccurate shot. The left side of the hole is an area to be avoided."
