From the tee, the trees on the right of the fairway have saved many a shot from the OB of the farmers field. To the left a fairway bunker awaits a wayward drive.
The green is protected by three bunkers on approach and requires an accurate second shot to achieve a par 4.
For most golfers laying up before the burn is the only option, especially off the par 5 white tee. This leaves a tough shot to make the green for two putts and a par 4. The further right you are on the fairway the better the approach, avoiding a shot over the deep rough and a greenside bunker. Too far right however, and you risk the out of bounds of the farmland.
The double green, shared with the 15th, provides a large target assuming you get past the two bunkers at the front.
An accurate drive is needed on this par 4. The fairway narrows around 200yds out between the rough on the left and the field on the right. Lay up and play safe, or go for the gap, the choice is yours! Whatever you choose you will have to get over the three bunkers protecting the front of the green, but beware, an over enthusiastic shot could see your ball rolling off the back of the slightly raised green.
A generous green provides a decent target on this par 3, but don’t get complacent. Although only one bunker is visible from the tee, there are four bunkers surrounding the green and a burn protecting two sides has ruined many a scorecard in the past.
The three fairway bunkers are strategically placed to collect the ball of a variety of driving abilities. Staying away from the bunkers provides a better approach, but once again brings the out of bounds into play. A good tee shot should set you up for an iron on to the green which is protected by two well spaced bunkers. Two putts on the flat green will give you a par 4.
A good shot is required to clear the mound and put the ball on the typical undulating links fairway. On the right of the green, the slope around the larger of the two bunkers will direct a ball towards the sand. The green itself has a vicious gradient; high at the right and rear, to low on the left. Pin position often determines whether a par 4 is gained… aiming for the flag is not always the best option.
The green of this par 3 is contained within the bowl shaped topography at the far end of the course. Clearing the three bunkers with the tee shot is essential as any ball landing within this bowl will be fed onto the green which slopes downward from back to front.
Good news; at last there are no fields on the right. Bad news; there is now a railway to provide the out of bounds. From the tee of this par 4 the temptation is to take the driver from the bag and aim for the pin. Depending on the length of your drive you could be playing a sand shot from one of the two fairway bunkers which can’t be seen from the tee. Aim right to avoid the bunkers. The second shot to the undulating green is downhill so you might take one club less than normal.
At last… no chance of an out of bounds shot! Straight down the middle is the order of the day for this par 4. A good bounce could determine whether the ball runs down the fairway slope, or into one of the three fairway bunkers. The burn is 47 yards from the green, although it looks closer, better being long than in the water. The green has two definite levels, high at the back and low at the front.
On a fair day two shots should see the ball on the green, giving a good chance of a par 4. An adverse wind however, will bring the burn into play. Laying up is made more difficult because the burn crosses the fairway on the diagonal. The ups and downs of the green means two putting is not guaranteed.
A reasonable drive down the middle avoiding the bunkers left and right should leave you a short iron to the relatively flat green. 2 putts should see with one of the easier par 4s on the course.
Avoid the fairway bunkers on the left, which is the best line in. The green is on a plateau and hard to hold coming in from wide on the right. Avoid the green side bunkers on the right as they are score busters.
Back to tight on the right with the railway a problem for slicers. Play your second over the burn to a plateau green. Adviseable to run it up as not easy to hold the green with a full shot. BIG bunker left and slightly easier one right, not an easy 4 especially off the white tee.
A long short hole, especially off the white tee. The only shot is a straight one or a slight fade in from the left. Not a happy hole for the hookers or drawers of the ball with its narrow entrance.
Play over the marker post, and avoid hooking it into the trees left (they seem to have some strange attraction for golf balls) and miss the fairway bunkers right. A medium iron should take you through the narrow entrance to the double green shared with the second hole, for a reasonable chance of a 4.
Not too bad from the yellow tee, bit longer from the white. Green sits in a hollow, well protected at the front and right with bunkers, better to take plenty club to avoid the trouble.
Hard par 4 from the yellow tee, easier par 5 from the white tee. Avoid the fairway bunker on the right but keep right as much as you can. Play your second over the burn and keep you shot to the left as everything comes round from there to the pin.
Reasonable fairway to finish, not too much trouble from the tee as long as you don’t pull your drive into the left fairway bunker. Again you want to play into the left side of the green for the contours unless you are going to fly it straight to the pin.
