Description

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.

It’s a thinkers course, you can’t just grab your driver and bash away because there are some holes there that’ll eat you up. My favourite is the par-4 13th which calls for a draw off the tee to leave you a mid iron into a green that has a ridge across and is harder than it looks. The hole wouldn’t look out of place on some of the best layouts in the world.
