12 handicapper perspective

A feature of the third is a lack of bunkers but don't let that induce false security. The ideal drive will find the left half of the fairway leaving a mid to short iron into the green. Anything to the right and towards the first fairway means a second shot of perhaps 160 yards over towering Silver Birch to the green. The putting surface is two tiered - a single flag indicates the pin is on the lower level, a double flag that it is on the back shelf. It is important that the approach finishes on the correct tier. With the ball down and the flag up, a tricky two putt is guaranteed. With the ball long and the pin short, a fast putt down the slope awaits.

Pro's Tip

For the mid to high handicapper this should be played as a par 5.
