Many scorecards have been ruined at the 17th hole! The tee shot appears simple, but only one beyond the large tree on the corner will mean the green is in range; and then you have a mid/long iron in uphill to a 2-tiered green. Out of bounds right and long, so slightly left is definitely best.

Pro's tip

A tee shot that moves from right to left will suit this hole. The second shot plays significantly uphill to a two tiered green. Aim your approach slightly left and be sure you hit enough club to get there.

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.
