The First is a gentle starting hole, being 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, with an out-of-bounds the length of the hole, and some well developed trees to cause trouble to a wayward drive.




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



The Second Hole is a more challenging par 4 of 346 yards.

The raised 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 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 is an undulating one with many very tricky borrows.







The Third Hole is the most difficult hole on our course, a par four on some 375 yards, to a raised green on a plateau with steep run offs at both sides and rear.

The drive has to be the centre of the fairway, as there are trees to left and right to catch a slightly off-line drive.

The second shot is to a small landing area which requires a demanding shot. Left will find trouble, and again the green has some very delicate borrows, and being high up is affected by wind.
