A gentle opening hole at 334 yards, a long iron is the sensible play with out of bounds to the right and a tree lined fairway to the left. Avoid the traps down the right….
A long par 4 dog leg, shaped from left to right. With one of the smallest greens on the course, and a downhill approach, judging the distance accurately for your second shot is crucial. Out of bounds runs the length of hole to the left…
Although being stroke index 9, from the back tees, into a prevailing wind you will find this one of the hardest holes on the course! Slight dog leg from left to right, avoid the out of bounds that runs adjacent to Delapre Abbey, and the well positioned bunkers to the left.
Stoke index 1! The raised competition tee gives you full view of the perils that await.. Woods to the right, run the length of the hole, a dry ditch 130 yards from the green needs to be avoided.
A true test of your golfing ability… One for the straight hitters! With trouble down both sides of the hole, you will need a mid to long iron to carry the brook which surrounds most of the green! An errant shot will undoubtedly result in tree trouble or a wet ball….
A tree lined right to left dog leg, reaching the apex of the corner is crucial for a par or better! A well positioned oak tree splitting the fairway will usually impact on your score…
A great par 3, stroke index 11 just doesn’t seem to do it justice.. Just over 200 yards from the back tees, you must avoid the fairway tree. A tricky greenside pot bunker is easily found to the right, finding yourself behind the oak tree down the left will need a miraculous recovery shot.
A long par 4 requires a solid, straight tee shot. A narrow fairway and a brook covering the right-hand side of the fairway will surely get your attention..
A classic risk and reward hole.. A raised tee, with a fairway that slopes towards the green means the longer hitters in the right weather conditions can get very close if not on the green! Coming up short will test your short game… The sensible play is a mid to long iron, giving yourself a full shot into the green.
One of the hardest tee shots on the course! The tee sits lower than the highest point of the fairway which makes the tee shot semi blind. Out of bounds to the left, a fairway that slops from left to right will need courage to find the fairway! Heavy greenside bunkering leaves this green well protected!
Another tough par 3! The raised tee overlooking the green 180 yards below is a very attractive looking hole. One of the more generous sized greens protected by 4 bunkers requires accuracy.
A short but interesting par 4. Don’t let the stroke index of 10 fool you, out of bounds to the left follows the right to left dog left the entire length of the hole. A stream that splits the fairway in half requires a carry of 175 yards to achieve safety. Beware the back pin position…
A long par 4 with the fairway offset to the right of the raised teeing ground. Well positioned fairway bunkers test you the entire length of the hole. Out of bounds to the left and a small brook that encroaches on the fairway 130 yards from the green. Take the time to appreciate the amazing view over the town..
The prevailing wind and having to make a carry of at least 160 yards over a small brook makes this hole particularly testing.
A shortish par 4, avoid the trees on the left and you should leave yourself a short iron into the green. The green is small and well protected by bunkers on both sides, club selection and accuracy are the key.
The only par 5 on the course, with the right conditions, the longer hitters may attempt to get to the green in two! You must avoid the stream that runs the length of the hole to the left and make sure you are far enough down in order to carry a small brook with your second shot. The copse of willow trees seems to be a popular spot but making par or better from there will be difficult!
The longest par 4 on the course, measuring a mere 439 yards! You must carry the stream off of the tee and hope you’ve hit a good enough and long enough shot to give you a chance with your second of clearing the greenside stream.
Mirroring the 9th hole, the last hole presents another risk and reward shortish par 4. The longer hitters can leave themselves a pitch into the green, but you must avoid the trees to the left and the bunkers to the right. A sensible tee shot should result in a good score!
