Description

A much more demanding tee shot from the white tees than the yellows, a number of balls will end up in the semi rough due to the camber of the fairway. Beware of a thin approach shot to the green, as the Halfway House is just about within striking distance!

Pro's tip

A drive at the marker post will leave a relatively straightforward shot to a green that is well guarded by bunkers and runs from left to right as you play your approach.

I found Saffron Walden very picturesque, well designed and in excellent condition. The 5th hole really stuck in my mind. A fabulous par-3 from a tee high on the hill that gives you a great view across to Audley End House. Not a long layout, but the greens are such that if they tuck the pins away, it can be very challenging indeed. I really enjoyed it.
