The Woods (Course One) Overview
Mount Edgecombe Country Club has two 18-hole championship courses, and the older Course One was upgraded about 20 years ago when the Mount Edgecombe residential estate was initially developed. Originally known as the Hullets Country Club, and created by Sid Brews in 1936, the course was upgraded and modernised in 1992 by Hugh Baiocchi, and is one of the few courses in the country to meet the USGA specifications.
Mount Edgecombe Course One (now “The Woods”) is a parkland layout, and this extremely attractive golf course has hosted numerous amateur as well as professional tournaments and will therefore test any level of golfer. With four sets of tees, the course is playable by golfers of any handicap.
Designer: Sid Brews (1935), Hugh Baiocchi (1992)
Distance: Champ 6243m, Club 5977m, Ladies 5199m, Par 72
Character: Parkland layout with many exotic trees, formerly known as Huletts CC, until converted to a residential estate in the early 90s. Begins with four shortish holes, then builds in strength right to the finish.
Signature holes: There are four special holes that constitute the course’s “Amen Corner” from the 13th to 16th. The 13th touch uphill Par 4 tee spot must be kept right of the large tree in the middle of the fairway. The second shot to a very narrow green. Holes 14 to 16 are where water hazards come into play. The first one is a par 5 with water guarding the green, followed by a par 3 across water, and a par 4 where a dam must be carried to reach the fairway. These 3 holes normally are the deciding holes in club championships.
