Looking good for a great weekend of golf
We have two superb courses: the Jonathan Gaunt designed, links style 18-hole course and The Lannocks 9 hole par 3, which is perfect for encouraging newcomers to the game. Drainage is excellent, keeping the courses playable all year round. The 18-hole course is quite open and appealing to golfers of all ages and abilities, but it will hit you with challenges that can catch you off guard if you let your mind wander.
There’s not a lot great deal of water on the course but the 3rd is an exception – an unnerving little par 3 over a lake to the green. So you need a good strike off the tee. Don’t overcompensate, though, or you’ll end up in the bunkers over the back. If you’re in luck, you might be treated to the site of a light aircraft landing on the airstrip down the left. It’s all part of the excitement.
The 7th offers a deliciously tempting tee shot, a drivable looking 280 yards running downhill to the green. But it’s a tight green, with bunkers covering the front left and right, so a certain amount of needle threading is in order if you’re going for birdie. Get it wrong and this is one tempting par 4 that could just turn round and poke you in the eye.
The par 5 16th is your chance to cut loose and go for those Tiger yards. At 520 yards from tee to green, you’re going to need them. You need a well struck, straight drive to send you on your way, with rough on the left and out of bounds to the right. The green is generous but well protected, so think long and hard about your approach. After hitting such a juicy tee shot, you don’t want to roll into those traps.
