This picturesque and mature parkland course takes us through ancient woodland and features several trademark holes.

A stiff test awaits LEGS members on the opening hole. 444 yards from the competition tee this Par 4 really sets out the challenge to come. At the Par 3 third hole accuracy into a narrow green is premium, but a good birdie opportunity (for some!) then awaits at the short par 4 fourth.

As the front nine comes to an end, many of us may feel that the ninth offers the easiest opportunity to reduce their score. However, beware – although only 246 yards long, this short par 4s green is very difficult to read and place the ball close to the hole. Water is a challenge on the course too, especially at the par five tenth where three good shots are required to reach the green.

Bordering the fairways, Rhododendrons await erratic shots over the next few holes and accurate tee shots are required particularly at the 12th, 14th and 15th to offer up short approach shots. Standing on the tee at the uphill 17th, a pair of pars to finish would be snapped up by most.

The par 5 18th gives the welcoming view of the clubhouse in the distance where we will be able to reflect all the good shots before Shaun buys us all a drink :)
