A tricky dog leg right par 4 to start off with. A small ditch crosses the fairway at 150 yards. There is out of bounds to the right hand side.
Second time around our little course you will play to the same greens but from different tees giving a different angle to the fairway and/or distance to the green in most cases.
Reducing the distance and approaching from a different angle this becomes a par3.
A short downhill par 3. Again there is a ditch that crosses the fairway, this time at 80 yards straight ahead. This hole boasts a decent sized green. Be careful not to overshoot the green as a tree plantation is situated behind it.
Slightly shorter this time around and the tee is set to the left of the fairway.
This is one of the longest holes on the course and all uphill! Once again another ditch at 170 yards crosses in front of you and takes you up onto a second level. The fairway opens out to the right over the ditch so there is plenty room out there but there is a ditch that runs up along the far right hand side. Trees guard the left side to just over half way up the fairway above the ditch.
A tee set back in the trees up at the right near the upper tier of the fairway takes the main ditch out of play.
Back down the hill, a dog leg right with a ditch at about 265 yards. Trees to the right hand side half way down to the ditch. The level changes after the ditch and drops down towards the green.
The tee position off to the left, set in the rough, brings a different angle to the start of this hole and brings the ditch closer at around 185 yards.
A nice uphill par 3 with a small plantation of trees off to the right. This hole has a large green but there is a ditch over the back of the green.
The 14th tee is a good 50 yards closer to the green and is set off in the left ruff.
A short downhill par 3 with a burn that runs along the back of the green and out of bound down the right hand side.
With the tee set into the left rough and 33 yards closer than the 6th.
A nice straight uphill hole here. There is out of bounds to the left and a nice large green.
The tee is 30 yards further fwd of the 7th.
A nice down hill hole for the long hitters. There is a burn that guards the front edge of the green and another burn runs along behind the green.
With the tee set to the left and hard against the dyke, this hole is now 100 yards shorter than the 8th.
This is a nice hole to finish the first 9 holes on. However there is a ditch at 170 yards ahead and one running the length of the fairway, on the right, all the way to the green.
The 18th tee is set forward left and backs into the trees giving a better line to the green, the ditch across the fairway is now only 130 yards.
Whether you are a golfer or not why not come along and have a putt.
