Course highlights

The Abbotts, our championship course, poses a fairly tight, tree-lined challenge, with out of bounds all the way round the outside and plenty of water keeping the emphasis on accuracy rather than brute force. Get through the first six holes in good shape and you could be on for a good score. The Friars is a more open course, built on old farmland with far fewer trees, so you can open your shoulders with a bit more margin for error.


The 6th is a wonderfully intimidating par 3, which tests your irons as well as your mettle. At 175 yards off the back tees, uphill and often into the wind, you need enough club to carry the distance – there is no lay-up option. Fall short and you’re in the lake or the large bunker, which takes some getting out of. The ideal shot is a 4 or 5 iron that hits the green with a bit of roll to avoid rolling back into the bunker.

The 12th poses all sorts of questions. A 445 yard par 4, it doglegs slightly right and uphill, so you need to be able to hit 250 yards off the tee to cut the corner. Most choose to play up the fairway, avoiding the trees and leaving around 200 yards to the green. Your approach shot must be brave. With the lake front left and a bunker to the right, there is no bail-out, and your length needs to be well-judged too. compress image (38)


The par 5 18th brings you back to the clubhouse in style. The flagpoles are your target. A beefy tee shot up the hill will leave big hitters with a 250-285 yard second to the green. If laying up, beware the lake, which comes into play 100 yards short of the green. A good lay-up will leave a safe chip to the green, but think about the flag position, as the tiers can leave you with an awkward putt.
