1st & 10th Holes:

 

These are straight par 4s, with a bunker left and trees on the right awaiting any loose tee shots. An accurate second shot is required to the long narrow, flat green with a deep greenside bunker on the right side waiting for victims.

2nd & 11th Holes:

 

These are another set of straight par 4s with accuracy crucial off the tee. Out of bounds all down the left side with trees right & left. A wall on the right will trap any wayward shot. The second shot is to a green that slopes from front to back, which makes club selection important.

3rd & 12th 

 

These holes have good scoring chances, 135 yard all carry par 3, with well placed bunkers front and left. The green slopes gently from back to front, with slight breaks in most putts.

4th & 13th 

 

These holes are challenging par 4s with trees left and right. The fairway slopes strongly from right to left with two fairway bunkers to trap big drives. The second shot demands great attention to the smallest green on the course. The green is elevated with any shot short, left or long leaving a delicate chip, with an unforgiving 200 year old oak defending the right side. The green slopes from right to left leaving tricky putts, which can be easily misread..

5th & 14th 

 

With a problematic 150 yard all carry par 3, there is significant elevation from tee to green of at least one extra club required. Any shot short can potential roll back 30 yards, while long leaves a fiddly chip. The green slopes from back to front leaving slippery putts that must be respected.

6th Hole 

This is a difficult dogleg left par 4 demanding a straight drive with huge trees blocking any shots down the left. Players are left with a long second shot with out of bounds all down the left with the ideal shot just right of the green. The putting surface slopes from right to left towards the lovely river Blackwater.

7th &16th Holes 

“Rothwell's” is our signature hole a straight par 4. With no out of bounds, water or bunkers this hole seems easy but has destroyed many a fine round. The fairway slopes violently from left to right with most drive ending in the rough and tee shot up left are blocked by large trees. The second shot is all carry with an extra club required and accuracy is essential. Missing the green on the high side left leaves a most testing chip to a green that slope wickedly from left to right. Putts on this green have significant breaks with speed and line essential.

8th Hole 

This hole has a slight dogleg right par 4 posing any interesting tee shot, big hitters clear the big trees or else play between them to a downhill fairway but beware of out of bounds left. The green is significantly elevated with extra club required but you can’t be long as the green slopes extremely from back to front. Putting downhill can lead to chipping back up

9th & 18th Holes 

There is a slight dogleg par 4 and a potential birdie hole. But don’t get greedy with your drive as the “3 sisters”, three huge trees, will swallow your golf ball. The second shot is to the largest green on the course with a bunker front left.

15th Hole 

The only par 5 on the course and a good birdie chance. Off the tee beware of trees blocking any shots down the right. Players are left with a long second shot with out of bounds all down the left. For your third shot take dead aim at the flag where the putting surface slopes from right to left towards the lovely river Blackwater.

17th Hole 

A tight dogleg to the right and this is the most difficult par 4 driving hole on the course. Very big hitters can clear the big trees or else play between them to a downhill fairway. The green is significantly elevated with extra club required but you can’t be long as the green slopes extremely from back to front. Putting downhill can lead to chipping back up.
