Description

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.

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.
