The short Par Three 1st hole was designed in the likeness of the famous Postage Stamp 8th at Royal Troon. Beware of this innocuous looking little hole, as an errant tee ball might see your ball roll into one of the dreaded ‘coffins’ guarding this little beauty.
The island green 17th hole at Sawgrass is probably the most easily recognisable short hole in the world and the NJDC’s version of the hole is pretty darn close to the real thing. The scariest tee shot on our short course requires a well struck iron and deft touch on the green to manage the severe undulations.
The Old Course at St. Andrews requires no introduction; it simply is the best-known golf course in the world. The 7th hole of the NJDC Par Three is inspired by the very difficult 11th of The Old Course. Although it does not have the double green you will find with the original, it does mimic the deep pot and false front that successfully protect the hole.
Without a shadow of doubt one of the most iconic golf holes in the world is the Par Three 12th at Augusta National GC. The 2nd at the NJDC was broadly modelled to give you a similar feel to the famous hole at ‘Amen Corner’, with a shallow green that is well protected by bunkers, a steep bank and a watery grave.
The 5th hole at the NJDC’s course is designed in the likeness of the 16th of Augusta National. One of the longer tee shots on the course, it tests you to carry the water body hugging the green and challenges your stroke with a serious slope from the back of the green to the front.
Ernie Els made one of the most amazing up-and-downs in Open history from a deep pot bunker at Muirfield’s 13th hole and this was instrumental in him going on to win his first Claret Jug. The NJDC’s 8th hole has the same look and feel as this legendary Par Three and it requires a very accurate tee shot to stay out of these similarly shaped pot-style bunkers.
The original Redan hole, the 15th of the West Links at North Berwick, can probably lay claim to being the most copied hole in all of golf. The NJDC’s Par Three 3rd hole is our rendition of this signature hole with its characteristic blind tee shot to a green that slopes steeply from front to back and then again for right to left.
Leopard Creek Country Club’s Par Five 18th has one of the most daunting approaches in all of golf. The 6th hole at the NJDC course attempts to replicate the difficulty with this short, yet very tricky, little tee shot.
The closing hole at the NJDC Par Three course is modelled in the likeness of the devilishly difficult 17th of the renowned Seminole GC. A long tee shot to a very well protected green that wants to feed the sand traps surrounding the green is the perfect finish to your 90-minute trip around the golfing world.
