Recently redesigned, this hole now poses a threat to golfers of all abilities. New cross bunkers 100 yards from the green provide a wonderful view from the top of the slope, where Lady Portsmouth’s column sits amongst out of bounds. These bunkers pose a real hazard should you be unfortunate enough to end up in them.

Pro's tip

Drive the ball down the right, as the fairway slopes from right to left. Long hitters may reach the bottom of the hill, giving the chance to take on the cross bunkers and go for the green in two.

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.
