Hole 12 – The Avenue

The twelfth hole is the first of two par 5s measuring 530 yards and played to a narrow elevated green, is a definite three shot hole for all but the longest of hitters. Trees to the right and a large fairway bunker to the left await wayward drives, whilst the tree-lined sloping fairway puts pressure on second shots which also have to avoid a small mid fairway bunker 100 yards short of the green. The pitch to the wide narrow and elevated green has to be precisely judged to avoid falling short or going through the green onto the far bank. A tough par 5.
