Hole 13 – The Commonwealth
The Commonwealth was named for its unique resemblance to the shape of Australia. The shortest hole at Mount Lawley is also the one most affected by the wind. Played from an elevated tee either into the prevailing sea breeze or with the morning easterly, club selection is critical. Shaped like the map of Australia, pin positions are often described by their ‘geographical’ location. When the wind is blowing, Alice Springs represents the safest target, even when the pin is cut at Kalgoorlie or Broken Hill. A definite birdie hole that just as easily becomes a bogey hole if anything less than full concentration is applied to the tee shot.
