The New course is unique and more than a little quirky, in that it has two greens on 15 of its holes, this means our golfers get to play on quality greens all year around.
The par 72 New Course stretches over 6,700 yards, but your yardage doesn’t only depend on what tee you are playing from, but on what green. The A and B greens create an exciting variety, making each hole demand varying lengths and positioning off the tee to reach some of the more difficultly placed greens.
The 349 yard, par 4 1st is a picturesque opening hole, heavily guarded by a series of brand new, strategically placed bunkers framing the right side of the green.
The downhill, 146 yard, par 3 8th is a delightful hole with two lakes surrounding the green, requiring a straight and accurate shot if you want to avoid the water.
Accuracy is also at a premium off the tee on the scenic 384 yard par 4 17th, with its sloping fairway ushering the ball left towards a water hazard and a series of bunkers, which could easily catch any golfer out.
