Description

A tricky hole to end the front 9, with out of bounds all the way down the right hand side, you should favour the left side where possible. New bunkers guard the approach and front of the green, so ensure you plot your way round carefully!

Pro's tip

Fairway slopes from left to right, a tee shot finishing on the right side of the fairway will give you the flattest lie for your 2nd shot. A good tee shot gives you a chance to attack this well protected par 5 green in two.

I found Saffron Walden very picturesque, well designed and in excellent condition. The 5th hole really stuck in my mind. A fabulous par-3 from a tee high on the hill that gives you a great view across to Audley End House. Not a long layout, but the greens are such that if they tuck the pins away, it can be very challenging indeed. I really enjoyed it.
