Hole Men's Ladies' Par Description
1 238 194 3 This is a challenging par 3 to start with at 238 yards to a well-guarded, narrow green. A valley in front of the green means you have to carry your drive all the way to hit the green. Start with a 4 and you are not too disappointed.
10 188 178 3
2 453 441 4/5 A long dog-leg par 4 requires a well-placed drive to give you a chance at the green in two which only the longer hitters can reach. Out of bounds down the right and trouble on the left makes this a great golf hole.
11 453 425 4/5
3 162 124 3 An elevated tee looks down onto a deceptively inviting green. However, if you miss the green you will be in trouble.
12 159 134 3
4 416 405 4 The fairway slopes from the left and there is out of bounds all the way on the right. The approach to the small green is partially blind and a par here is a good score.
13 430 405 4
5 361 329 4 A straight drive here is essential otherwise you are in trouble with dense trees right and left. The 14th tee is from a completely different angle. Don’t be tempted to take on the corner.
14 410 326 4
6 266 260 4 This is a short uphill par 4. There is a large bunker across the front of the green which makes running a shot in almost impossible. A potential birdie hole awaits if you get a good tee shot away but it is a card destroyer if you are slightly wayward.
15 266 260 4
7 469 405 4/5 The 7th is another long par 4. The green has a considerable right to left slope which can catch you out if you are not careful. The 16th tee is further back making it the only par 5. The drive is very intimidating with out of bounds right and trees left. Get a good one away to set up a chance of a par.
16 534 396 5/5
8 290 229 4 Another short par 4 gives a chance of a birdie especially for the long hitters. However, the green is small and if you put your drive in the wrong place you will be struggling for your par.
17 292 236 4
9 175 165 3 This is a mid-length par 3 to a green protected on the right and left by grassy mounds and bunkers. Out of bounds just behind the green can catch you out if you are too aggressive. The green is undulating making putting tricky even for experienced members. Finish with a par and that drink at the 19th will go down well.
18 167 173 3
