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.

It’s a thinkers course, you can’t just grab your driver and bash away because there are some holes there that’ll eat you up. My favourite is the par-4 13th which calls for a draw off the tee to leave you a mid iron into a green that has a ridge across and is harder than it looks. The hole wouldn’t look out of place on some of the best layouts in the world.
