Description

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.

Mature parkland, it’s superb. The par-5 3rd is a good hole up the hill and the 17th is strong too, but I like the par-5 that runs along the bottom to end the front nine. The perimeter of the course stretches down to the right-hand side and the tee shot is all important, calling for a draw into a sloping fairway. You must hit the fairway here to give yourself a chance of going for the green.
