Description

Bunkers litter the final hole on the course, not to mention the clubhouse being a large out of bounds target beyond the green! A stunning view of Saffron Walden Church greets you on the tee, while an undulating green awaits to conclude a hopefully very enjoyable round.

Pro's tip

The green slopes considerably from front to back and also slightly from left to right. Any shot that carries over the green is in danger of finishing out of bounds.

Mature parkland, it’s superb. The par-5 3rd is a good hole up the hill and the 17th is strong too, but I like the par-5 that runs along the bottom to end the front nine. The perimeter of the course stretches down to the right-hand side and the tee shot is all important, calling for a draw into a sloping fairway. You must hit the fairway here to give yourself a chance of going for the green.
