Gents 4 432
Ladies 5 397
Stroke 2  

1st hole: A tough opening par 4, really plays as a par 5. Drive over both burns, avoiding rough on the right. Lay up onto middle of hill with your 2nd, leaving a short iron over the marker pole or slightly right of it for your third. From the back of the medal tee it's 287 yards to the ridge, short of the hill and 160 yards from the ridge to centre of green.

2nd hole: Playing from an elevated tee, watch out for swirling cross winds. Rough down left and right of fairway and a burn in close proximity to the back of the green!

3rd hole: A tough par 3 elevated green to catch. Trees and rough on left side with more trees on right, plus a bunker if you are just short! Best line in is tight in to the left corner of the green and allow natural contours to take the ball onto the green.

4th hole: Playing from an elevated tee, this is a driveable par 4 for big hitters. Avoid steep hill on left and be wary of small burn on right that impinges transversely. Aim for right of green from tee and either play 2nd from just over or just short of the burn.

5th hole: Allegedly, the easiest hole on the course, but it is surprising how many good golfers don't find this short par 3 green from its elevated tee position. Watch out for the rather large rock in front of you - as well as the rough and new trees surrounding the green at the back!

6th hole: For the bigger hitters, this hole is driveable at present - this will change when the trees are fully grown and blocking a direct path to the green ! With a water hazard protecting the front approach, two deep bunkers flanking the left side, gorse and bracken further left, best to play this one as intended - a long to middle iron off the tee to the dog-leg on the fairway, leaving a short iron into the middle of the green.

7th hole: A long par 3 to a difficult, undulating green. Avoid out of bounds up the right, the burn running diagonally across the fairway and rough up the left, part of which is blind from the tee. Many a good player has played up short and delighted to walk away with a four!

Stroke 5  

8th hole: Big hitters can reach this elevated par 4 green, but for us mere mortals, drive over the marker pole on the hill ( or slightly right thereof ) avoiding steep hill with rough on the right and the smaller hill with new trees on the left. This should leave you with a clear view and a short iron for your 2nd shot to the green.

Ladies 3 165
Stroke 14  

9th hole: You can play anything from a driver to a wedge on this hole - depending on the wind conditions! This par 3 is played from an extremely elevated tee position to a green guarded by three bunkers on its left side and burns to the front and back. Aim for right side but don't be too short, as the hill running down to the green will swallow your ball up!
