"A slight fade from left to right is perfect for this hole to set up the approach, or take an aggressive line along the right hand tree line with draw if you want extra distance, as the fairway opens out. But beware of OB"
"If it is your first shot of the day, anywhere on the fairway will do & gives you a chance of getting on this back to front sloping green"
"Keep as far right as you can with your tee shot, a good line is over the tree on the right hand corner of the fairway, which will get you an extra 20 yds of roll"
"A tough par 4 that should be treated like a par 5. Play your second shot to your ideal distance for an approach to a very narrow well guarded green & you may well then get close enough with your third shot to earn a well deserved par"
"Straight forward par 3 with hidden bunkers left & right, good birdie opportunity"
"I agree with the Pro, but with it being all uphill the pin is often hidden so a good strategy is to take whichever club you need to hit the centre of the green and hope it gets you close to the pin."
"A birdie opportunity if you get a nice straight drive away as the green is relatively flat for your approach shot"
"There are not just birds in the trees to the right, its OB all the way along the right side & a good source for golf balls, but don't let that put you off"
"Good two shot hole with wide approach to the green guarded by three bunkers"
"This is a huge, wide fairway that begs you to hit your driver. Usually played into a prevailing wind and uphill for the first 200 yards, rejoice if you get on the green in two."
"Great looking hole, a long drive over the hill will catch the down slope & give you a medium iron into this back to front sloping green"
"One of the best holes on the Valley, a good tee shot gives you the chance to go for this inviting green with your approach, but this hole has 3 huge bunkers & a water hazard to catch an errant approach shot.
"Trouble all down the right including a water hazard, big hitters may prefer a three wood or a long iron to take the water out of play. A narrow green with trouble right & a large bunker left requires an accurate approach shot
"Very difficult to score well at this hole unless you nail your tee shot, everything feels much narrower after the last two holes. A good line is just right of the big tree guarding the left hand side of the fairway. Your second shot needs to be supremely accurate with all the trouble around the green."
"A draw is required off the tee to set up a short iron into a severe slopping green"
"Check your alignment before taking your tee shot, the tee box is pointing towards the trees on the right & make sure your approach to the green gives you a straight uphill putt or you could be three putting"
"Fairway slopes from left to right, so aim left of centre with your tee shot to avoid bounding into the rough on the right. A good scoring hole to finish with"
"You feel you should be able to par this hole, but the green is very tricky depending on where the hole is cut, so take extra care with your approach shot, going long on this hole is to be avoided."
