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.

Saffron Walden is what I would call a proper members’ club, it’s very well kept and it looks in lovely condition from the moment you turn into the car park. I enjoyed the round very much and thought it was a very fair test. The 17th was the toughest hole, but I liked the 13th as well. A few tees forced you to take less club to position your ball on the fairway, but I think that is a huge plus in the design. It’s a place that makes you think on every shot.
