Yellow Nine Guide (The Corballis Nine)
Corballis, which is derived from "Cor", which means a round backed hill and "baile" which means town.
|1||"Stile": Until the 1930's Corballis Road only went as far as Taffe's cottage which was situated near this hole and where a stile existed for access purposes.
Par 3 to start. Two tiered green guarded by front bunker and two bunkers left and right. Don’t go long on this hole as out of bounds behind green.
|2||"Long Lane", is the road or lane on which the stile stood.
Decent par five. Straight hitters rewarded. Out of bounds on left and trees all down the right hand side of fairway. Elevated green guarded by two front bunkers.
|3||"Widow's Meadow", is a field which lies to the west of the third tee-box. It derives its name from the Widow Carberry, a family associated with the parish since the 17th Century.
Par 4 that runs parallel to the second hole. LHS of fairway is the place to be off your drive. Trees left and right along fairway. Relatively flat green with bunker on the front right.
|4||"Short Knock", is named after an old field located near by.
Short par three two bunkers front right and left of green and bunker behind centre of green. Green tilts slightly from back to front. Beware of wind direction.
|5||"Poc Fada" is the Irish for "long puck", and as one of the longest Par 4's on the course, it is suitably named.
Difficult dog leg par four. Tough driving hole. Longer hitters can try go over the tress but a good tee shot is required for this line. Better to aim at fairway bunker in the distance with shorter club. Second shot played to a flat green that slopes gently from back to front. Tee shot is the key to this hole.
|6||"Crooked Meadow", is named after an old field located in the vicinity.
Slight dog leg left par five. Drive through the gap and you are well on your way. Elevated two tier green protected by bunkers on the right hand side.
|7||"Tennis Court": In the late 1940's there was a tennis court (where the chipping practice green is now located) which was available for use by members of the golf club.
Short par four with a lot of bunkers. Trees running down both sides of fairway. Best take an iron off the and leave a wedge in for second shot rather then try drive the green. Slightly raised green sloping from back to front protect by bunker in the front right.
|8||"Little Daisy", was an expression used by some golfers at this hole in years gone by.
Par 3 to a two tiered green that slopes from right to left. Bunker in front left to catch any pulled tee shots.
|9||"Gilleranies"; Translated from Irish, it means the reeds or brooms of the grey marsh. These reeds can be seen behind the 6th and 9th tee-boxes on the Yellow 9.
Par 5 to finish. Slight dogleg left where long hitters take the hazard out of play but mere mortals are often caught. Elevated two tier green protected by bunkers on both sides.
