  5. TORRANCE- VERY TOUGH PAR 4. REQUIRES GOOD TEE SHOT AVOIDING FAIRWAY BUNKER.  GREEN IS SMALL AND WELL PROTECTED. MAKE SURE TO ADD YARDAGE FOR UPHILL SECOND SHOT, AND AVOID BUNKER SHORT OF GREEN. OoB FOR ANY SHOTS LONG.TOUGH HOLE!

  8. BIRDSTON - LONGER PAR 3 REQURING A GOOD WELL STRUCK SHOT. BUNKER LEFT SIDE TO BE AVOIDED. PLAY MIDDLE OF GREEN
  9. WETSHOD - GOOD STRONG PAR 4 WITH UPHILL SECOND SHOT. AVOID DITCH RIGHT OFF THE TEE, CLUB UP ON SECOND SHOT TO ALLOW FOR ELEVATION CHANGE. AVOID GOING LONG OR LEFT ON SECOND SHOT.
  10. CATS WALK- PAR 5 TO START THE BACK NINE AND A POSSIBLE BIRDIE, GET A GOOD TEE SHOT AWAY AND THE 2ND IS IN REACH FOR LONGER PLAYERS. IF NOT LAY UP TO YOU FAVOURITE YARDAGE FOR YOUR 3RD SHOT TO GIVE YOU THE BEST CHANCE.
  11. JOCK MUIRS GATE - STRONG LONG PAR 3 WITH GREEN SITTING ACROSS YOU. DEPENDING ON WIND MAKE SURE YOU TAKE ENOUGH CLUB, AVOIDING DITCHES LEFT AND RIGHT. AIM FOR THE FRONT/MIDDLE OF THE GREEN
  12. CA’ CANNY - TOUGHEST HOLE ON THE COURSE. TEE SHOT NEEDS TO STAY MIDDLE/RIGHT OF FAIRWAY. SECOND SHOT SEVERELY UPHILL. CHECK PIN POSITION SYSTEM AS THE GREEN IS 60 YARDS LONG. GOOD HOLE, 5 IS NEVER A BAD SCORE.

  15. TODHILL- BEAUTIFUL SHORT PAR 3 WITH WELL GUARDED GREEN. BE AWARE OF PIN POSITION AND WIND AS THIS CAN CHANGE THE CLUB FROM FRONT TO BACK QUITE A LOT. A BIRDIE CHANCE BUT MANY GOLFERS HAVE TAKEN HIGHER SCORES WHEN CAUGHT OUT BY THE BUNKERS.
  16. SPRINGFIELD - RISK AND REWARD. LONG HITTERS MAY GO FOR THE WELL PROTECTED GREEN. SENSIBLE PLAY IS HIT A POSITIONAL SHOT TO BOTTOM OF HILL, AND A WEDGE ON. TREES WILL BLOCK OUT AN OFFLINE TEE SHOT. SLOPING RIGHT TO LEFT GREEN IS ALWAYS FAST.
