A drive to the left half of the fairway is the sensible shot here, avoiding the group of trees and the thick rough to the right of the fairway.
This dogleg par 4 may not require a driver from the tee with the ideal line from the tee being the back edge of the seventh tee. From there, it is a reasonably straightforward shot in to the flat green, but don’t go long as the River Deveron awaits you!
This “Wee Devil” of a par 3 is well protected by bunkers, overhanging trees and out of bounds to the right. The two tier green has very few straight putts on it.
This uphill hole plays longer than its yardage with a reasonably tight driving channel through the trees. A drive to the right of the two fairway bunkers will give you a good line in to the two tiered green. The second shot always requires one more club than you think.

This long dogleg left par 4 present one of the toughest tee shots on the course. It requires a draw around the corner or a high one over the top of the highest tree if you are brave enough!
