Putting green

Our new practice putting green is located near the first tee, together with 4 driving nets to get into the swing before your round. Our brand new Short Game practice Area is the best facility in the county, providing players the chance to replicate shots from all lies and stances as if on the course.  Built containing a large number of different grasses, all cut to different lengths, you will not find a more comprehensive area within which to practice your short game. The area is so excellent that internationally respected Professional and Coach Scott Cranfield heard about it and asked to use it for one of his lessons with a pupil based in the area!

In conjunction with the above we have a recently renovated practice range with all playing areas fully covered with Huxley Turf - the best artificial surface to hit golf balls from. There are distance markers for the full distance of the range, as well as practice flags to aim at. There is also a small practice bunker to tidy up your short bunker shots.

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.
