Hole Twelve

After completing the eleventh hole, golfers make their way around the front of the dam, across a bridge onto a peninsula tee complex to hole twelve. A stretch of water lies between the tees and the fairway but, although it might intimidate less competent golfers, this is more of a feature than a hazard. While the landing area is extensive, the difficulty lies in the length which, at over 400 metres, is Olivewood’s longest par 4. Compounding this is water to the left, made up of a series of small ponds, and Chintsa River to the right. In addition, the thickly grassed berms, separating the tenth and twelfth, also comes into play. The fairway narrows marginally as the golfer gets closer to the elevated green, with steep slopes at the centre and right.
