The front nine home hole, Go For Broke, is slightly longer than the first at 298 yards and is a fantastic tempting grip-it and rip-it par 4. Two fronting bunkers pinch the landing the landing area leaving a narrow entry way to the putting surface. The wayward drive will find a creek right and trees right. Again the mid iron lay up is the smart play.

Along the way you will encounter several holes where taking an aggressive approach will offer birdie opportunities but trouble lurks to foil your plans. Holes such as the ‘Devil’s Corridor ‘ (#3) where you can take the big stick far down the fairway leaving a short pitch to the green but hazard left and overhanging trees right will only reward the straightest of shots. ‘Signature Hole’ (#14) is another hole where the big hitter is offered a risk reward opportunity. The teeing ground is perched high above the fairway and offers spectacular views of the Caledon Hills that stretch off in to the distance. At 547 to 619 yards this sweeping dogleg leg left is a true three shotter par 5. The longer hitter is tempted to try to cut the corner but if you bite off too much a marshy grave that runs the length of the left side will be your balls final resting place while the dreaded straight ball will bring the right side OB in to play. Care must be taken on the second shot as the landing area is pinched by the aforementioned marsh and OB and two fronting bunkers. A big number awaits the gambler.

In addition to this group of superb risk reward holes Mulyaert also put included a great collection of varying par 3’s. Number 5 is a short and down hill over one of the Credits tributaries and requires a short iron. The 8th hole is a straight away beast where a long iron or utility is likely the club of choice. Number 12 plays over a valley and a mid iron in needed to reach the green complex built in to the side of the hill on the far side and finally number 16, which a tricky hole requiring a short to mid iron to a small target protects by bunkers and creek short and more hazard right. The greens on all four are sloping and care must be taken to stay below the hole (this can also be said for the other 14 hole).

To conquer Caledon the player whose strategy employs a little finesse will likely leave the course a happier player that the one who tries to bludgeon the course with brute force.
