Straight forward par 4, with out of bounds to the right running the length of the hole. Bunkers left and right of the green protect the hole and make a par difficult should you find yourself in one.Pro's Tip
Keep your drive slightly left of centre to open up your second shot to the green.
A par 4 with a stream running across the fairway approximately 125 yards from the green and reachable off the te.Pro's Tip
Keep your tee shot short of the stream and aim slightly right off the tee as the fairway cambers from right to left.
A very good opening par 3 that is a good test of the golfer's ability early in the round. The green slopes from left to right and is guarded by two deep bunkers on the front right of the hole. A par here is a good score.Pro's Tip
Any shot slightly right will inevitably end up in the bunkers, so aim to the left for safety.
A testing par 4 with a blind tee shot. The fairway slopes away from you and from left to right, which makes controlling your tee shot tricky. A good drive should see you have a medium to short iron into the green, which is guarded by tow bunkers, left and right.Pro's Tip
Aim your tee shot slightly left of the black and white marker, but be careful not to aim too far left, as trees await! The second shot generally plays a little less than the yardage.
A long dogleg left makes the tee shot important. The fairway cambers slightly from right to left which can help a drive as you want to play your second shot from the left half of the fairway. A long, narrow green means that even if you get your tee shot away, an accurate iron shot is required to set up a birdie putt.Pro's Tip
Be mindful of the club you take off the tee, as any drive slightly right can end up in trees or with the large oak near the green blocking out part of the green.
Caution off the tee is required as there is a stream that meanders across the fairway approximately 135 yards from the green, and out of bounds all the way down the right hand side of the hole. The fairways slopes away from you off the tee, so be wary of taking too much club.Pro's Tip
Take an iron or fairway wood off the tee to leave you with a short to medium iron into a large green.
The second par 3 on the course. Deep bunkers on both sides of the green await an errant tee shot.Pro's Tip
Take a club more than you think as the hole plays slightly up hill.
The only par 5 on the course. The tee shot is key here and big hitters maybe able to hit it onto the flat ground adjacent to two of our Trafalgar Oaks, leaving an opportunity to go for the green in 2. However, the lake to the left of the fairway awaits any shots too far off line. Be wary of the ditch that runs along the left hand side of the fairway after the oaks; many a golf ball has been lost there.Pro's Tip
Aim towards the right hand side of the fairway off the tee to allow for the right to left camber. Be wary of leaving the ball above the hole on the green as it slopes steeply from back to front.
Straight and long! The fairway here used to be the site of the Manor House's cricket square. Today, it is a devilishly long par 4 that requires guile to navigate a par.Pro's Tip
Your second shot will play slightly shorter than the yardage due to the downhill nature of the hole. Be mindful of getting the ball to the hole otherwise you will be left with a very quick, downhill putt.
A short par 4, with out of bounds all the way down the right hand side. Getting your tee shot away and avoiding the trees will allow you a short shot into a tiered and slopey green.Pro's Tip
Find the fairway off the tee to leave a short iron in, however keep your ball below the hole, otherwise a 3 putt is a likely outcome.
A beautiful par 3 where accuracy from the tee is essential. Deep bunkers either side of the green await any offline shots.Pro's Tip
Aim for the centre of the green and don't chase the flags if they are tucked close to the bunkers.
One of the most treacherous holes on the golf course. A sharp dogleg to the right leaving a long shot up the steep hill to a difficult green. A par here is an excellent result.Pro's Tip
Do not take on the corner of the dogleg, unless you have your "A Game" with you, as it is out of bounds to the right hand side. A lot of our members play this hole as a par 5, which is a very sensible option.
A short par 4 where birdies can be made! A straight drive leaves a wedge shot into the small green. Be wary of missing the green long, as par will be almost impossible.Pro's Tip
Aim for the heart of the green with your second shot and you will rarely be outside of 15 foot of the hole.
A very tricky par 4. Finding the fairway on this hole is imperative. Any tee shot left of the fairway leaves a significant sloping lie making the second shot so much harder.Pro's Tip
The tee shot is crucial here. You play uphill and need to find the club that carries about 180 yards (off the white tees) or 120 yards (off the red tees) to find the fairway.
This par 4 plays much longer than the yardage suggests. A slight dogleg to the right with a large valley to navigate with your second shot. The green subtly slopes from back to front.Pro's Tip
Take at least one more club than the yardage for your second shot as anything short of the green is likely to leave you with a 30-40 yard pitch uphill.
A beautiful vista is the reward for making it onto this tee with a view towards Cheltenham. The fairway slopes from left to right leaving you with an uphill second shot.Pro's Tip
Aim down the left hand side of the fairway to find the fairway and be sure to account for the hill on your second shot to avoid the ball coming back towards you!
Some would suggest that this is our signature hole. A long par 3 over 200 yards long with a lake guarding the right hand side of the green, with bunkers on the left and views towards Cheltenham in the distance.Pro's Tip
For those not comfortable trying to hit a 200 yard shot onto the green, aim to the left of the green where you may well be lucky enough to run onto the putting surface.
Our final hole, but don't let your mind wander form the job at hand! Out of bounds down the right hand side keep you honest on this sharp dogleg to the right. Be careful not to run out of fairway when driving over the road. An accurate tee shot will leave a short iron into the green, good shots can be rewarded by a round of applause from the nearby clubhouse patio-where a refreshing beverage awaits.Pro's Tip
A fairway wood off the tee provides the accuracy required to set up a good birdie opportunity to sign off the round.
