The 1st is a gentle opening hole – a par four of just 300 yards.

There is one bunker on the left hand side of the fairway, but it is best to avoid the right hand side where out-of-bounds runs along the full length of the hole and mature trees may block a wayward drive. Avoid the natural hazard, a crater known locally as Dingly Dell, which is located 25 yards short right of the green.   

The green itself is quite large, but beware of being too long and too far right as severe trouble awaits.


The 2nd hole is a more challenging par four of 346 yards.

The raised back tee gives a good view of the fairway, which narrows down around the landing area for an average drive. High trees on left and right can cause problems for even a slightly wayward tee shot. There is a fairway bunker on the right at some 100 yards from the green which is bunkered, front left, front right and right across the back of the green.

The green itself is very tricky to read with a pronounced swale cutting through the centre and numerous deceptive borrows.


The 3rd hole is the longest and toughest on the course, a par four measuring 375 yards which plays to a right-to-left sloped fairway.

A good drive will usually leave a lengthy uphill approach to  a raised, infinity green perched on a plateau with run offs at the left, right and rear. The green is long and quite narrow where a two-putt par will feel like a birdie for most golfers.


There are breathtaking views from the picturesque 4th/13th tee and it's also the longest of the par threes at Torrington, measuring 217 yards from the 4th tee and 237 yards from the 13th tee.

Do not stray too far right as the ball will be thrown sideways due to the left-to-right slanted terrain.  

If the wind is against, it will take a solid strike to reach the putting surface. Many golfers come up short of this green, leaving a straightforward pitch shot to a generous two-tiered putting surface.
