Two courses with panoramic views with a healthy mix of challenges amongst the rolling parkland, lakes, ponds and sand
A Par 73 with long Par 5’s where you really need to open your shoulders. Water comes in to play on four holes with a lake wrapping around the green on our signature hole and fairway on the 18th to finish.
The opening hole is a short gentle par 4 with a tee shot that requires you to carry a large looming lake in order to reach the fairway. There are two large fairway bunkers on the left. A two tier green is guarded by a pot bunker be sure to keep right and be careful not to over club.
A short swinging dog leg left. The Bunker at the end of the fairway is a great line to take, but remember not to take to much club so that you don’t end up in the bunker. It’s vital to make it to the bottom of the fairway in order to open up the green. Be aware of the two front left bunkers with your approach shot.
A long, tricky Par 3, with a gradual elevation to the green. Anything short can run back off the slope so choosing the correct club is essential if you want a realistic birdie chance. Right-side of the green is a good line as anything left will find the slope and leave a very tricky up and down for par
The toughest hole on the course for a reason. An elevated tee position makes for an inviting tee shot but finding the fairway is not easy with the right-to-left slope that features all the way to the green. A good line is the bunker that is short right of the green. A good drive will leave a long approach that should favor the right side of the green. Many will lay up short of the looming fairway bunker, leaving a pitch shot into the green.
Although potentially drivable for the long hitters, the line is tough to find and there is trouble right of the green. A drive finding the fairway will leave a short approach to a target. Accuracy on the approach is required though as the green is undulating and difficult to read. Make sure not to go long as a water hazard awaits any stray shots.
An uphill dog leg left Par 5. A daunting tee shot that requires a carry over severe rough and a small lateral water hazard to find the fairway and avoid going left as out of bounds lines the left side of this hole. A sloping fairway requires both drive and second shot to be positioned to the right side of the fairway to open up a view into the green. The green is raised and offset so you are hitting into a very narrow target and it is protected by gorse. Bigger hitters can reach in two but be sure to miss right as left has lots of trouble.
A short Par 3 with a generous green that slopes back to front. This is a shot that looks likely to set up a birdie chance but selecting the correct club is vital as the wind can affect the yardage considerably. Bunkers left and right punish any stray shots.
A long par 5 that require a tee shot to be aimed left of the maker post. This sloping fairway means you will find your ball lower than your feet. 150 yards short of the green is a gap in the wall that runs either side of the fairway. Danger lurks in the form of a fairway bunker on the left hand side and a steep bank to the right with deep rough and gorse bushes. If you find yourself here then you will struggle to find the green. This two tiered green makes a good approach very difficult.
The 9th is a classic par 4 at 413 yards long. A well hit tee shot aimed at the marker makes for an easier approach. The only danger is the front left pot bunker. The green is sloped towards you so it rewards you to be bottom side of the green, leaving an uphill putt.
This long par 4 makes you think strategically about where to hit your tee shot. Around 200 yards off the tee is a deep fairway bunker which makes it very hard to hit the fairway. As you make your way towards the green you will see that it is tunneled with bunkers either side punishing you for an offline approach, however this does not make the hole easier for the straight hitter as at the back of the green is a small lake which is easily found. Approach with caution.
The 11th is an intimidating golfing hole. The fairway runs adjacent to some very deep rough for the full left side of the hole. It is a slight dog leg left with two dangerous bunkers either side of the fairway around 70 yards short of the green.
A short dog leg to the right. Finding the fairway is essential and avoid going left or you’ll end up in the hedge. Beware of the front left bunker. The green is slightly elevated so you can fly your approach direct to the flag.
The signature hole is a difficult par 3 for all abilities. A green surrounded by bunkers that is situated on an island makes it crucial to hit the green with your tee shot.
The 14th is a daunting hole. With red stakes stretching up the left hand side and a deep hollow to the right you must find the fairway. Fortune favors the brave, if you can hit it the right club over the top of the marker then you can find yourself greenside. Avoid going long as a steep slope awaits an over hit shot.
A Par 3 that demands pin-point accuracy as three pot bunkers lie at the bottom of the slope to the left of the green and out-of-bounds runs along the right-hand side. A shot placed short and right will run onto the green but when conditions allow one should aim to pitch on the green for a good chance at a birdie.
Aim for the marker post at the top of the hill, with a good drive if you want a chance to reach this Par 5 in two. The green is set off to the right so makes a difficult target, but a well-placed second shot will open up the green. A bunker front right will catch any poor approach shots.
A wide, open fairway invites a big tee shot on this long Par 5 which must be placed to the right side as it will roll around towards the left. The second shot needs consideration to avoid running into the bunker guarding the approach down the left side. A shot to the right rewards with the best view of the target. The green runs from front to back and is raised on a small plateau so finding the putting surface is a challenge.
The fairway stretches out beneath the elevated teeing position on the Par 4 18th. The drive is very inviting; care must be taken to avoid hitting too long and venturing into the lake or bunker. A well-placed tee shot towards the 150 yard marker leaves the best possible chance to attack this hole. The carry over the lake is treacherous and the green is elevated so anything short will likely find the water. A two-tier green completes the challenges on this strong finishing hole.
The Estuary 9 hole course at 3013 yards and par 36 is the perfect course for beginners or those who prefer to play a shorter game.
A reachable par 5 that demands a tee shot favouring the right of this sloping fairway. This sets-up an approach shot to leave a short iron in or, if you have the distance off the tee, a chance to go for the narrow green, guarded by a mound to the right. Anything left will leave an awkward uphill chip so accuracy is key.
A great par 3 down the hill on the estuary course. A green that require a well struck iron shot will be rewarded. Anything hit long left or right is sure to find some sort out trouble. Accuracy is key in trying to make par here. Two big bunkers guard the green well and make it seem a straight forward hole but that’s not the case at all.
A classic par 4. A well hit tee shot aimed at the marker makes for an easier approach. The only danger is the front left pot bunker. The green is sloped towards you so it rewards you to be bottom side of the green, leaving an uphill putt.
An uphill dog leg left par 4 that heads towards the historical archway that used to form part of the boundary to Saltram grounds. A long thin green makes the approach difficult as the green is surrounded by bunkers.
Par 3 measuring at 153 yards for the men’s is protected with a deep front left bunker and a run off to the right hand side of the green meaning hitting the green is essential if you want a chance to make a birdie or your par.
It’s essential to avoid the two eye-catching bunkers and find the fairway on this long par 5. A lake lingers to the right hand side of the green so be aware if you are attacking the green in two or hitting your approach not to miss right or your ball will have a wash in the lake.
With the Tiger line to hit this fairway precariously close to the hedge running all the way down the left side of this hole, a well-placed tee shot is vital to set up a possible go at the green in two. A conservative approach will set-up a short iron for a chance at a birdie.
A relatively short par 3 from an elevated tee affords a great view of the green. The entrance to the green is guarded by bunkers left and right so hitting the target is a challenge, especially when the wind blows.
A quirky little par 4 measuring at 287 yards off the back tees. With a well protected green by five bunkers it provides a good test to make par here. A well positioned tee shot in the fairway will leave a mid-iron approach to an uphill green so be sure to club up. Beware that left is where trouble awaits if a miss tee shot is struck with heavy rough a pond and out of bounds.
