Opened in 1993, the course winds through gently undulating pine forest, on sandy soil that drains superbly, enabling us to keep the course in excellent playing condition all year round. At 6,458 yards from the championship tees, it’s long but still accessible to golfers of all abilities. For quality and value it has been ranked as one of the country’s top 10 public courses and golfers who discover it for the first time keep coming back for more.
If you want to do our fabulous course justice, come and hit a bucket or two at our floodlit, covered 36-bay driving range. It has automatic power tees throughout and range cards available with £5 free credit loaded on with every purchase. Best of all, it’s right by the bar, so you can order food and drinks while you practice. There’s a putting green and buggies for hire too. And ask about our coaching academy and free custom fitting on all clubs.
The 2nd is a 404 yard par 4 that requires good shot positioning if you are to beat par. You need a straight tee shot favouring the right side of the fairway for the best angle into the green, but don’t overhit it or you’ll find the water. A 3 wood should do it. Now you should be in place to hit a good second into a raised green that slopes right to left. Aim right a little to allow the ball to run down towards the pin.
The 408 yard par 4 10th is the hardest hole on the course, and not just because you usually have a baying audience on the clubhouse terrace. Again it’s a 3 wood from the tee and you want to err to the right to avoid the big overhanging tree. Don’t be too bold with your second as there is a steep fall off the back of the green, which can be a card wrecker. To add to the challenge, the prevailing wind is against.
The par 3 17th is one of those seemingly simple holes that can mess you up as you near the finish of your round. At just 132 yards, you only need to hit a pitching wedge or 9 iron at most, so finding the putting surface should well within your grasp. Lose concentration and miss the target, though, and you’ve got a very difficult up and down, with the green sloping from back to front.
“Absolutely fantastic course. Set deep in a pine forest the vistas are spectacular and there are some really interesting risk and reward opportunities. The front nine are decent with nice tree lined fairways, but the elevated back nine is where the course really shines. The 15th dogleg left with an elevated shot into the green was particularly good and the 16th is a driveable four up a tight fairway. Greens in superb shape and very fast. Probably the best pay and play course I have played in the UK” – A.S
