1The key to a successful round is a solid start. Although the first hole is a short par 4,the combination of a two-tiered green and a sloping approach can easily lead to frustration.2A blind tee shot always requires a degree of caution particularly in this case when you are made aware that the further you hit your drive the narrower the fairway becomes.Hitting the fairway is essential if you are going to give yourself the ideal lie to make sure your approach carries the sleepered stream to find the green. Clubbing is vital as get3The best position off the tee for your approach is right centre of the fairway.Anywhere on the left half and your view may be hampered by the hillocks that protect the front of the putting surface.4The silver birch trees on the right of the fairway can prevent a clear line into the green so left half of the fairway is key hereYour clubbing again is important as the vast majority of approaches are from uphill lies. Most players underclub whilst playing to uphill targets however once again with the green 5A real risk and reward par 5. The fairway is a must hit if you fancy your chances for going for the green in two.Often the prevailing wind helps down this hole but with a stream filled gully in front of the green not only your distance and clubbing must be spot on but you have little room for6The 6th is a gem. Accuracy is everything,with a stream ready to ensnare the mis-hit or misdirected shot. Safety is not even assured if your ball lands on the upturned saucer-shaped green.7With a lateral ditch hugging the right side of the fairway on this dog leg it is easy to over cook your drive to the left.The bolder you are the shorter the second shot. There are some hillocks that protect the right of the green but once again the slope from back to front means no easy two putt.8Much like the 5th the challenge to reach the green in two can only seriously be considered if your drive is positioned on the fairwaynear the cross rough. You are then left with a 200 yard plus shot to a bowl of a green surrounded by hillocks.9An underestimated par 3 that looks innocuous from the tee.Detecting the direction and strength of the breeze at the top of the course is not easy from a sheltered tee. That and a green that slopes from back left to front right adds to its10The new white tee makes this a hard two shotter but most of the difficulties relate to any approach you may have here.There is a lot of dead ground and you need to commit to your shot to make sure the target is hit. Anything short will run off some 15 –20 yards down the bank.11Your tee shot on the 249 yard par 3 11th hole demands straightness and distance as the hog’s back approach can take the off-centre hitaway from the intended target. Enjoy the view from the tee for this point indicates a challenging homeward stretch.Anyone reaching the green in two has had to hit both shots with authority and precision to cover the 568 yards.12The 12th is the longest hole on the course.13The severity of the hill up the 13th fairway means that your well struck drives needs to reach the top of the plateau otherwise you mayleave yourself a very demanding long shot from an uphill lie to a two-tiered green. Another case of taking enough club to reach your intended target.14This undulating Par 3 green sits below the tee and often plays shorter than its 195 yards.Although you must be mindful that a daunting batch of heather must be carried before the putting surface.15A front pin position on this short Par 4 adds to its degree of difficulty.The two-tiered green higher this time at the front often means your approach ends up at the back section of the green. No easy two putt..16This attractive par 4 is deceptively long and requires two well hit shots to make the green.The heather covered pimples that guard the front of the green often encourage the player to feel that the target is closer than it actually is and hides around 5 or 6 yards of extr17Concentration needs to be maintained, particularly over the closing holes,with perhaps the second shot to the 17th hole being crucial to a successful finish to your round.18From an elevated tee your first priority is to avoid the heather covered pit that shares the first and eighteenth fairwaysOnce negotiated your second shot invariably is from an uphill lie that requires good club judgement. The last 5 holes are wonderful matchplay holes where nothing can ever be taken
