A true risk and reward hole; a driveable par 4, but only if you are willing to take on a large carry of trees. Safe shot is down the middle leaving a short iron in to a narrow green, but this can be easier said than done into some very strong winds.

Pro's tip

A tee shot beyond but close to the large trees on the corner of the dog-leg will leave a clear view straight down the narrow green. Cut the corner at your own risk.

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.
