hole 1 large

Hole 1, 350 yards, Par 4


An opening hole full of choice with its upper and lower fairway separated by the bunker at the 230 yard point and a strip of rough.


For the low handicapper there is a touch of risk and reward, in that if the golfer is prepared to take the out bounds on the left and the bunker on the short of the left hand corner of the green, it is possible to drive the green. Failing that, a short pitch to the green with a full view of the flag is all that would be needed to make the green.


For the not so brave, playing the ball to the lower fairway is the best option; this does make for a more challenging second shot, up to the elevated green, where the bottom of the flag cannot be seen. A golfer taking this approach to the green needs to consider that it is further than it looks.


Hole 10, 372 yards, Par 4


With the second time around this nine hole course, the different tee positions change the golfer's consideration as to the best line to take from the tee. It is the tee shot that alters significantly on most of the back nine holes, when compared to the front nine, the tenth is no exception. The fairway bunker comes more into play for the scratch golfer on what is predominantely a drive and wedge hole.
