Ladies Par 4 Stroke Index 13
A straightforward opening hole, where hitting the fairway will leave a medium to short iron to a green protected by 3 bunkers. Avoid going long as this will leave a difficult chip back onto the green. A par here is a great way to start your round.

A short dogleg par 4 that despite its length can prove very tricky. Keep the tee shot to the right side of the fairway to avoid the trees which overhang the left hand side of the fairway. The ideal tee shot is aimed at the marker post or slightly right of it if hitting a fairway wood or long iron. This will leave a short iron to a long narrow green but beware of catching the tree which overhangs the front left of the green. Longer hitters can go for the green, ideally hitting a draw off the marker post but beware of overdoing it.

A long par 4 that bends slightly right to left. A drive to the centre or right side of the fairway leaves a long iron or fairway wood to the green. Often best played as a 3 shot hole with the 2nd shot hit over the grass cross bunkers 100yds short of the green leaving a short pitch to the green still giving the chance of making a par.

Although only 170yds it is a tough target to hit. The tee shot is played through a fairly narrow avenue of trees. The green is now protected by 3 bunkers to the left and 3 to the right of the green. Play to the front for a safe par or take on the pin and risk the Out of bounds over the wall at the back of the green, Club selection is key here.

For Ladies Par 5, Stroke Index 7
With out of bounds over the wall to the left and trees all the way up the right the tee shot is a test for any golfer. A three shot hole for most players best played by clearing the grass cross bunkers with your second shot this setting up your approach. Make sure to take enough club to make it up the steep slope at the front of the green! as anything landing on the slope will roll back down onto the fairway.

Mens another strong par 4 and Stroke Index 5.
Ladies Par 4 Stroke Index 1
This hole plays downhill with trees on both sides of the fairway. A really inviting tee shot and if played off the back tees gives a fantastic view of the Lakeland fells in the distance. Avoid the fairway bunker on the right of the fairway from the tee and this should leave a medium iron to a green protected by 3 bunkers. Try to avoid missing the green in the swale to the right of the green as this will leave a difficult up and down. Any par here shows a well played hole.

A gentle right to left dog leg. A tee shot to the centre right of the fairway will leave you in the perfect position to play to the green which slopes from front to back. Avoid hitting your approach past the flag as this will leave a lightning quick putt down the green! If your approach shot is kept below the hole this is a good chance of a making the putt.

A left to right dog leg played from an elevated tee. The view from the back tee is one of the most talked about and remembered on the course overlooking the Lakeland fells. Avoiding the 3 fairway bunkers on the right side of the fairway is ideal. The tee shot will be to the left side of the fairway leaving a medium to short iron to the green. The slope to the left hand side can be used to feed balls back onto the green. 3 bunkers short and right protect the green so take enough club to clear them.

The 9th is probably one of the toughest par 3 holes you will play anywhere. At well over 200yds from the back tees the 9th is played downhill to an undulating sloping narrow green. The best place to miss this green is short leaving a chip straight up the green. Any miss to the right or left will leave a tough chip. Make a par on this hole and you will be extremely happy.

Mens Par 3 Stroke Index 18
Ladies Par 3 Stroke Index 18
The shortest hole on the course which can be anywhere in length from 93 yards to 135 yards from the back tees. Club selection can be difficult. Even though this is a short hole, the green is protected by a series of deep bunkers to the front and a steep slope at the back. This little hole has ruined many score cards. Pro tip – ignore the flag and despite the short length of this hole play to the middle of the green and take your chance with the putter. Don’t be misled by the length of this hole as a 3 is always a good score here.

A downhill par 4 with a slight left to right dog leg. A tee shot over or just left of the marker will leave a short downhill 2nd shot, this is a good birdie chance if the tee shot is on the fairway. Avoid the out of bounds down the left hand side. The long hitters may fancy have a go at driving the green but putting the tee shot on the fairway will more often lead to a better chance of making birdie.

A good tee shot to carry an ancient quarry is a must. The hole dog legs left and the approach to the green is a testing uphill shot with the ball often above your feet. Try to reach the flatter part of the fairway off the tee aiming at the marker or just to the right of it to avoid a hanging lie which will make hitting the green a challenge! Bunkers left and right await any stray shot. A par 4 is a good result here.

A dogleg right to left with trees and water on the left side and out of bounds on the right. A tee shot to the centre or right side of the fairway (aim at the low spot in the wall) will leave a medium iron to a green protected by bunkers on the front left and right of the green. Use the ridge running through the green to help get your approach close to the hole if the flag is on the left hand of the green.

The first par 5 of your round, it is a slight dogleg from right to left. A tee shot towards the marker post is the safest line. Longer hitters must beware of the ditch at 275 yards either playing short or taking on the carry. Avoiding the fairway bunker with the 2nd shot will leave a short pitch for your 3rd into a green which slopes away from you and is protected on both sides by bunkers. Play it right and you may have a putt for birdie!

The last par 3 of the round. A long iron, hybrid or fairway wood required from the tee to a green which is difficult to hit. With bunkers to the left and a pot bunker to the right, playing for the front of the green is the best option, but beware anything short will be gathered by the slope this is a hole where a par is always a great score.
