Description

Out of bounds left and right, an accurate tee shot is required to make sure you aren’t reloading for 3 off the tee! Uphill all the way to a large green, this is a strong par 5; probably one of the best in the County.

Pro's tip

A tee shot down the left side will give the best angle to hit the green in two for the long hitters. A lay up over the ridge will leave a short iron or pitch from a level lie to this large 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.
