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.

Some people don’t like to finish with a short hole, but I think the 18th at Saffron Walden is a very strong hole. In fact, all the par-3s there are good. The 5th is the signature hole with a great view, I like the pot bunker on the 7th and the 11th has a very narrow green. It’s an extremely pleasant place to play golf.
