HOLE by HOLE

Pro's Tip

An iron for safety will leave a downhill wedge to an inviting green surrounded by four bunkers.

Beware the huge drop through the back of the putting surfice.

Pro's Tip

A long tee shot must carry the out of bounds on the right to leave the perfect mid iron second shot to a large two tier green

Pro's Tip

A tight drive with out of bounds right and bunkers left. An uphill second shot to a well guarded green, always take one more club than you think

Pro's Tip

Keep the drive down to the left hand side to avoid the out of bounds and to leave the best line into the green. The second shot must land just over the front bunker for the ball to be gathered into the centre of the green.

Pro's Tip

A short par 5 giving a good birdie chance early in the round. A well struck drive will leave a straight-forward second shot to a small green sloping away from the player.

Pro's Tip

A very long par 3 requiring a long iron or wood to a split level green. Keep the tee shot right as the slope will gather the ball onto the putting surface.

Pro's Tip

The sloping left to right fairway is difficult to finish on but this short par five with a receptive green is another chance of a birdie.

Pro's Tip

A long par 3, the tee shot must be kept left of the flag to allow the contours to feed the ball onto the green. A missed shot right will result in a certain bogey.

Pro's Tip

Keep the drive to the right as the sloping fairway will take the ball towards the valley. An accurate approach is required to a well guarded green to set up a birdie chance.

Pro's Tip

A drawing tee shot will shorten the hole considerably but the uphill approach to a two tier green is one of the toughest shots on the course.

Pro's Tip

An iron for safety short of the fairway traps or the big stick to drive the green, the decision is yours.

Pro's Tip

A flat par 3 to a small green protected by the ditch short and the mounds to the rear. To stop the ball on the target will require a high, well struck iron shot.

Pro's Tip

The longest hole on the course at 608 yards this monster will require three of your best to find the small well guarded green.

Pro's Tip

A little gem. The only place to land your ball is on the green. Bunkers short and right, a gully down the left and a steep bank through the green make this a hole you will never forget.

Pro's Tip

This uphill par 5 requires three good shots to reach the green. Then the fun begins negotiating the most undulating putting surface on the course.

Pro's Tip

One of the best holes in the county this long par four requires a well struck tee shot down the right hand side to leave a long, downhill fairway wood to a well guarded green.

Pro's Tip

A good drive is necessary to carry the ravine and leave a short iron to a receptive, well-guarded green.

Pro's Tip

With the smallest green on the course this finishing par 3 needs a well struck mid iron to carry the valley and find the target. Finish with a par and you will be the toast of the bar!
