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.

Saffron Walden is what I would call a proper members’ club, it’s very well kept and it looks in lovely condition from the moment you turn into the car park. I enjoyed the round very much and thought it was a very fair test. The 17th was the toughest hole, but I liked the 13th as well. A few tees forced you to take less club to position your ball on the fairway, but I think that is a huge plus in the design. It’s a place that makes you think on every shot.
