Hole 2 – Quarantine

 

434 yards. Par 4

Favour the left side off the tee as it keeps you away from the out of bounds down the right. Into the prevailing wind don't worry too much if you can’t reach in two, most don’t! 5 isn’t a bad score here.

Hole 3 – Gully

 

548 yards. Par 5

A testing tee shot where you have to avoid both out of bounds right and a pond left. Get away nicely and that leaves you the gully to contend with. Avoid this and you will be left with a shot to the well guarded green. A great par 5 early in the round..

Hole 5 – Devil’s Elbow

 

454 yards. Par 4

This long Par 4 means its tough to tame. Keep it left of the tee to make the second easier. The blind approach to the green should be landed short, and allowed to run down the slope in order to keep it on the putting surface.

Hole 6 – Gubeon

 

525 yards. Par 5

A short Par 5 that can be taken advantage of by a good tee shot over the marker, as it will run down to the flat fairway. Take care to miss the large fairway bunkers 100 yards short.

Hole 14 – Trees

 

184 yards. Par 3.

A downhill par 3 to a well-guarded green. This hole is normally a club less than the yardage suggests, middle of the green is the safe play.

Hole 15 – Horseshoe

 

313 yards. Par 4

A good birdie chance but beware as the fairway is tree lined and the green is well protected. Avoid the bunkers which are further away from the green than you think.

Hole 16 – Burnside

Another short par 4 which is a real risk and reward hole.  Being brave off the tee offers the chance of birdies and even eagles but beware as trouble awaits on both sides.

Hole 17 – Whins

 

151 yards. Par 3

A picturesque par 3 over a burn to another well bunkered green. Whilst its not long in length the normal cross wind on this hole requires consideration.

397 yards. Par 4.

Your eye is drawn to the fact that out of bounds borders the hole on both sides of the fairway. Get your tee shot away and you have a chance to hit the difficult green which offers a true test of your putting.
