Wrekin Side

Hole 1 - 286 yards

A short but uphill par 4 makes for a fairly straight forward start to the front 9, however a crop of trees on the right side of the fairway and bunker short of the green lurk ready to halt that dream start to the round.

Tip - play your tee shot left of the trees to give you one of the flattest lies on what is an undulating fairway.

Hole 2 - 384 yards

The 2nd presents a tougher challenge in the form of a long par 4 with a gentle dog leg right to left. The approach shot is tricky with a steep slope to the left and a bunker short right which are very much in play.

Tip - keep your drive to the right to avoid the ditch and bunker down the left edge of the fairway. A miss to the right of the green is the safest.

Hole 3 - 473 yards

Another gentle right to left hole which can be reached with two well struck shots, however with out of bounds running all the way down the left side and a well-bunkered green, par is always a good score.

Tip - a straight shot from the tee aimed towards the fairway marker pole on the 6th will keep you away from the trouble down the left.

Hole 4 - 309 yards

A short par 4 requires a simple tee shot to an ample fairway, grass bunker left and bunker right. The approach requires a little more care with the large greenside bunker left and the small staked hazard to the right of the green. This hole is at the furthest point of the course with panoramic views of the Wrekin.

Tip - ignore the pin positioning and hit your approach shot towards the centre of the green to avoid the large bunker left and hazard right.

Hole 5 - 200 yards 

A seemingly simple par 3 but don’t be fooled, depending on the breeze it will require anything from a short iron to a wood. The green is guarded by bunkers left and right with a large drop over the back down to the next tee.

Tip - take enough club to reach the front with a smooth swing watch the ball release up the green to eliminate the danger of going long.

Hole 6 - 328 yards

Not a long hole, but with a lateral hazard down the left and a large bunker short of the green means a precise tee shot is required. A sloping green leads to a difficult approach and some tricky putts.

Tip - play your approach short and allow for the ball to release onto the green and hopefully leaving you an easier putt.

Hole 7 - 142 yards

A short par 3 but with the landing area unsighted it still provides a test, the left to right slope throughout the hole makes it tricky to make a par.

Tip - play left and allow for a left to right bounce but the greenside bunker short left is waiting to catch you out if you stray too far

Hole 8 - 365 yards

One of the feature holes on the course and is part of a tough finish to the front 9. A fairway which slopes towards the green and with undulations to the right requires an arrow like tee shot to give a sight of the green. The approach fraught with danger to a green set well below the fairway making club selection tricky.

Tip - a tee shot down the left allows a possible sighting of the green and gives a better angle to avoid flirting with the bunker short of the green.

Hole 9 - 417 yards

The 9th is the final addition to this tough finishing stretch. A strong right to left dog leg with a large oak looming for a pulled tee shot left. A downhill approach to the green is guarded by bunkers left and right, this hole is fraught with danger and can be a real card destroyer.

Tip - a shot aimed at the pylon shaping right to left or a straight shot at the fairway marker pole will leave you with a sight of the green and a downhill approach that will run and run in the summer.

Telford Side

Hole 10 - 338 yards

A steady opening hole for you to begin your way into the back 9. Not long but an errant drive can see you out of bounds on the left or in the bunker on the right. The approach is into a 2 tier green with a bunker to the left side.

Tip - an iron from the tee to leave your ball short of the bunker avoids all trouble and leaves a short iron to the green.

Hole 11 - 384 yards S.I.14

A downhill dog leg from left to right with an demanding tee shot and narrow entry to the green makes this a tricky hole and par a great score.

Tip - an aggressive line slightly right of the marker pole will find you the best line into the green.

Hole 12 - 349 yards

This hole plays slightly up hill and invariably into the wind. It is a tough driving hole with an unsighted landing area and will require an arrow straight drive. The approach needs to avoid the greenside bunker left.

Tip - the green runs away from the middle so be careful not to over club on approach.

Hole 13 - 191 yards

A long and demanding par 3 with water short and bunkers left and right providing a great challenge.

Tip - for those who get a shot, lay up short of the water and play for a nett par. For those without a shot …
good luck!

Hole 14 - 385 yards

A slight right to left dog leg, requires another challenging drive with a big bunker to the right and long rough all down the left. The approach can also be intimidating especially if your left with a long iron or wood due to the large bunker to the right of the green.

Tip - a straight drive is crucial here to set up an easier approach which will release downhill from the front of the green.

Hole 15 - 335 yards

An arrow straight hole that usually plays downwind and is reachable for longer hitters. The hole is well bunkered with them shouldering both the fairway and green.

Tip - two iron shots avoiding the trouble is a sensible play and may even see a birdie or two.

Hole 16 - 422 yards

From an elevated tee it is important not to bite off more than you can chew on this sharp right to left dog leg with out of bounds running down the left side. Play too safe and away from the corner and you will find yourself a long way from the green. The approach must avoid two ditches and a deep bunker to find the putting surface.

Tip - a tee shot flirting with the bunkers or over them for the longer hitters will leave you a much shorter approach to the green.

Hole 17 - 185 yards

The signature hole of the course. A beautiful approach over a lake to a green sloping back to front guarded by two bunkers.

Tip - ensure you take enough club or your ball could get a bit wet.

Hole 18 - 481 yards  

The longest hole on the course is a test just to walk, but with out of bounds left and a lateral hazard down the right of the first half of a split fairway an accurate drive is needed. The second part of the fairway climbs uphill to the green with two bunkers looming in the lay-up area. When you finally arrive on the green some very difficult slopes await, making it a tough finish to the very end.

Tip - lay-up short of the bunkers and ensure enough club is used to reach the green above and avoid seeing the ball run back down to the fairway.
