COURSE OVERVIEW

FROM £44 PER MONTH

Hole 1

BRIDLEWAY - A fairly open first tee shot, but tee aims a little to the right, so check your alignment. Good players can take on the fairway bunker on the left which opens up for the second shot into the green. There are bunkers both sides of the green and danger lurks if you go long.

  • Par 4
  • 389 Yards (White)
  • 375 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 2

CORONATION COPSE - Difficult tee shot demanding accuracy, plus the added factor of the left to right slope making the 2nd shot difficult. The approach shot needs to come in from the left and you can use the slope at the front of the green to help feed the ball in. A bunker guards the right hand side of the green.

  • Par 4
  • 448 Yards (White)
  • 428 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 3

RUNWAY - The tee shot needs to be down the left side, avoiding the large bunker, the ball will feed to the fairway. You can reach in two if you hit a good drive, but if not, lay up and play a 100 yard pitch into the green, avoiding the bunker on the right side of the green. This green is long from front to back so check flag position before playing into the green.

  • Par 5 / 4 off yellow tee
  • 495 Yards (White)
  • 411 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 4

THE BRAE - Wind direction plays a factor with this hole. If the wind is against you, this is a tough par 4 but a lot easier if the wind is with you! You can drive up the right to be safe, or try to drive to the centre where the ball will feed down the steep right to left slope to the flat part of the fairway. Watch out for the fairway bunker down there though. Your 2nd shot needs to come in from the right avoiding the bunkers front left.

  • Par 4
  • 422 Yards (White)
  • 402 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 5

TABLE TOP - Plateau green with bunker on the front right. Take a line just left of the bunker to be safe, as if you miss the green it is difficult to get up and down from.

  • Par 3
  • 152 Yards (White)
  • 135 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 6

ORCHID MOUND - Alignment is important off the tee, as tee aims slightly to the left. Get a good drive away and you can reach in two! Green is guarded by two bunkers left and right, while general contours feed right to left.

  • Par 5
  • 512 Yards (White)
  • 513 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 7

SKYLARKS LEA - Dogleg hole right to left. You need to work the ball right to left as tee aims very straight which could get you in trouble. Avoid the fairway bunker on the left. The green is reachable in two in the summer months (if you are a big hitter), but if you play more conservatively lay back from the fairway bunker which is 50 yards from the green. The green is long and difficult to see the pin position. Humps to the right of the green assist the ball feeding in towards the green.

  • Par 5
  • 532 Yards (White)
  • 513 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 8

ASHDEN BANK - Tee shot needs to be down the left of the fairway, avoiding the fairway bunker. Fairway slopes left to right and downwards after the bunker, which can affect your 2nd shot. Best to aim slightly left with your 2nd shot to the two tier plateau green.

  • Par 4
  • 380 Yards (White)
  • 363 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 9

THE KEEP - Check wind direction before you play this hole. The green is guarded by bunkers left and right and is long and narrow, so take plenty of club on this hole. As you walk towards the green look left across to the 11th green to check out the pin position, you will need it later in your round.

  • Par 3
  • 188 Yards (White)
  • 166 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 10

BADGERS TRAIL - This is a fairly straight forward hole, although you need to drive slightly to the right side of the fairway which slopes right to left. The green is guarded by bunkers short, left and right.

  • Par 4
  • 386 Yards (White)
  • 369 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 11

LONG VALLEY - Hole goes along a valley, tee shot needs to avoid fairway bunker on the left. It is possible (for long hitters!) to reach in two in the summer months but mainly lay up at the bottom of the slope and have a 100 yard shot to this elevated green. Shots need to come in from the right where you have banks to help feed the ball down to the green, don’t miss left otherwise bunkers will get you.

  • Par 5
  • 550 Yards (White)
  • 524 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 12

CASTLE PROSPECT - Check alignment on this hole, drive should be just left of the right hand fairway bunker. Fairway slopes from right to left which makes 2nd shot tough. Green is guarded by bunkers left and right, the wind direction will have a factor on this hole.

  • Par 4
  • 440 Yards (White)
  • 425 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 13

SPIRITS VIEW - Tough par 3 uphill check wind direction on this hole before playing the tee shot. Green is guarded by bunkers front left and front right, take enough club to carry them, banks at back of green will assist feeding ball back.

  • Par 3
  • 187 Yards (White)
  • 179 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 14

DINGLY DELL - Accuracy with your tee shot is required on this hole to avoid an old bomb hole and tree on the right. The 2nd shot is played slightly uphill to the green which is guarded by a deep bunker front right. It is difficult to see the bottom of the flag, so is best to hit 2nd shot in from the left.

  • Par 4
  • 332 Yards (White)
  • 318 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 15

CHESTNUT TURN - Difficult drive you need to avoid fairway bunker left but you can get blocked out by the trees on the right if you go too far right, so nice straight drive here required. Green has 2 bunkers left but has banks on the right and back to help with 2nd shot.

  • Par 4
  • 384 Yards (White)
  • 331 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 16

  • Par 4
  • 379 Yards (White)
  • 365 Yards (Yellow)

Hole 17
