A stunning view of Audley End House can easily distract you from a difficult tee shot. A couple of clubs downhill, however winds from any direction are possible here; from as little as an 8 iron up to a 3 wood!

Pro's tip

Club selection is the key on this severely downhill par 3. Beware of crosswinds.

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.
