SI 6 6 7
PAR 4 4 4
                                                          

BEWARE! the opening hole has an out-of-bounds down the right-hand side of the fairway. So plan carefully. By aiming left off the first tee you will be rewarded with a relatively easy mid-iron shot, albeit that the green is protected by three bunkers.

SI 9 9 6
PAR 4 4 4
                                                          

POSITION off the tee is important. With a line of trees down the right, the way in is to the left-hand side of the fairway, which in turn opens up a way in to the two-tier green. Two bunkers shield the putting surface. Choose the wrong approach and it could prove a costly exercise.

PAR 4 4 4
                                                          

DANGER ...beckons if your tee-shot is down the right side of the fairway. A small copse of trees will block out the second shot to the green, so aim left of centre for the best result. This will also steer you away from a deep greenside bunker that is situated top right

SI 17 17 8
PAR 5 5 5
                                                          

THE ..first of two par five holes, but the wide fairway offers the opportunity to hit driver and go for distance off the tee. A big green opens the way for a possible birdie, but accuracy with the second, or third shot is vital as once more two greenside traps come into play.

SI 11 11 9
PAR 4 4 4
                                                          

ACCURACY is the key. With two small copse of trees lining either side of the fairway, about 170 yards from the flag, it is easy to find difficulty with the second shot. Bunkers left and right of the green could also catch you out. However, another birdie chance is possible.

SI 1 1 1
PAR 4 4 4
                                                          

STROKE.. index one is reputedly the toughest hole on the card to par for the high handicappers. The fairway offers a sharp dog-leg, some 180 yards to the right, off the tee. Out-of-bounds down the left and a large copse of trees to the right could prove daunting with a bad tee-shot.

SI 8 8 12
PAR 3 3 3
                                                          

THE....two-tier green opens up another birdie chance, provided you choose the right club on this first of the par three holes. Avoid the greenside bunkers at all cost, but accuracy with the putter is important on a green that can have some difficult pin positions.

PAR 4 4 4
                                                          

ANOTHER....chance to take the driver out of the bag. Stay left or right and you find trouble, but there is ample room in between to hit a good tee-shot and be in position. This green is protected by awkwardly placed bunkers, which can catch out a weak second shot.

PAR 4 4 4
                                                          

REACH....the top of the hill and beyond off the tee and par is very plausible on this hole. With no bunkers to worry about the second shot to a big green is another chance to open the shoulders. But three-putts are always a danger if your positional play to the pin
