Olivewood Private Estate Golf Course Hole 4

Hole Four

From hole four, an archway of trees confronts the golfer, framing the downhill fairway and three distant dams.

During the design of this hole, the natural sweep of land was relied on to create the fairway. Past the third dam, the fairway slopes gently upwards to an elevated green. This is a great risk-reward shot and, although big hitters can comfortably carry the first dam, the right-to-left slope of the fairway brings the other two into play.

Dominating the left side of the Fairway is heavy bush and bamboo forest. The Prudent approach is a short shot leaving the player ahead of the water, with an easy iron onto the green.
