Course Tips - Yellow Tees at Jack's Point

Course tips are generally available for most courses - but extremely rarely from a women's perspective. We've set about to remedy this, starting with Jack's Point.  When playing an unfamiliar course, it's a confidence booster to stand on the tee-box and have a good idea as to where you need to land the ball to get the most bang for your drive. A well placed drive sets the tone for the rest of the hole.
