Hole No.7: PRECISION,

originally sponsored by Bob Wilkinson. The name ‘Precision’ was chosen as Bob sold Bernina Sewing machines which he maintained were ‘precision’ machines. The tee shot does need precision as there is a gully in front of the green, a bunker to the left on a downward slope and trees to the right. This hole is another that once had two greens. The second green was situated on the flat
area, to the left-hand side of the present green with the the willows and water close behind it.
Playing to this green in the early days was a much simpler assignment than the right hand green.
A wide open No 7 with only some of the established trees are to be seen. The approach shot to the green never used to be too difficult as can be seen. Note how far from the green the bunker used to be, with a glimpse of the second green just over the edge of the bunker to the left. The back
bunker was added at a later stage. There was considerable discussion many years ago about lengthening this hole as it was thought ‘too easy” – removing the gum to the left of the present tee ang creating a line more directly over the present bunker.
