One of the strongest opening holes in the area, with an uphill tee shot to a fairway running right to left…into a steep fairway bunker! Bunkers guard the front of the green, so ensure the approach shot is struck with accuracy.

Pro's tip

Favour the right of the fairway from the tee to avoid the difficult fairway bunker on the left. Choose your club carefully so your approach finds the correct level of this two tiered green.

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.
