The Tea Tree Gully Golf Club is located at the foot of the Adelaide Hills some 24 Kms from the City centre and offers a magnificent eighteen hole, 6207 metre Par 71 golf course with superb couch grass fairways and bent greens.

The Sunday Mail’s Ben Hook and Royal Adelaide Teaching Professional Daniel Blackwell reviewed the 3th, 7th and 15th holes. Refer to the below playing tips, as listed on the Tea Tree Gully website and videos of the duo playing the holes below:

Playing Tips - 3rd hole, 204m Par 3.

From the easiest to arguably the most difficult hole. Bunkers on both sides of the three tiered green make it a very demanding tee shot. The only safe place other than on the green is short.

Playing Tips - 7th hole 338m Par 4

A beautiful looking golf hole that can be simple if played correctly. Fairway bunkers stretch around the corner of the dogleg that can only be taken on by the long hitters. A hazard left and behind the green make it advisable to take one club less than the distance indicates.

Playing Tips -15th hole 353m Par 4

Considered to be the signature hole of the course. Second shot over the   water to a large green protected by three bunkers. The shorter hitters should play to the front of the green to avoid the long carry over the water
