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.

Some people don’t like to finish with a short hole, but I think the 18th at Saffron Walden is a very strong hole. In fact, all the par-3s there are good. The 5th is the signature hole with a great view, I like the pot bunker on the 7th and the 11th has a very narrow green. It’s an extremely pleasant place to play golf.
