Memorable Hole Make or Break
6th 269yd par 4. From the tee box this hole looks like an easy birdie opportunity, and I wondered whether the stroke index 1 could have been a miss print on the score card. But be warned put the driver away and lay up with a sweet 3 iron, as the full front of the green is protected by a double water hazard. The slopes on the green are such that anyone brave enough to land their drive on the putting surface will need to chip back on to the green. This incurs the further risk of putting the pitch in the water. I won't say I told you so, but......... 4th 487yd par 5. As the hole has a slight jink left in the fairway you need to be precise with your tee shot to have any chance of seeing the green for your 2nd shot. Drive down the left avoiding the trees to leave a shot through the small fairway gap to a two tiered green. A 5 here is good golf.
   
Summary  
A course that is well worth the visit, we played on a damp Friday in March and found the greens fast and true..... so know doubt their slickness will be outrageous during the summer. Make a full day of it and play both the Red and the Blue Courses.
