Holes 1-6

Hole 1

A fine opening challenge. From an elevated tee the fairway stretches out invitingly and the practice ground to the right offers a safe haven for an initial sliced drive. The only problems are provided by trees: a small copse to the right and a line of trees to the left. Two bunkers lie in wait, one at each side of the long green.

Hole 2

The drive is the easy bit here. Simply smack it as far as you can to simplify life for the later stages of the hole. For the second shot aim at the marker post . At this point, some 90 yards from the green, there is a deep pond on the left which teems with fish presumably feasting on Warwicks of yesteryear and fresh Titleists of more recent vintage. Pause here to take in the stunning views of Ingleborough and Whernside and then look back to see the distant Lake District hills. Returning to the golf, it is a good idea to land the approach shot short and let it run down to the green which has bunkers either side and another back left.

Hole 3

A well protected sloping green will need a very accurate long iron to hit this tough par 3. Anything short right will leave a slightly  easier uphill chip but not too short as the out of bounds will creep into play.

Hole 4

The tough start to the round continues. With out of bounds right, a drive down the left will leave a much easier approach to the raised green, but be careful not to go too far left as the ditch will come into play. The  big hitters will fancy going for this green but be warned, anything hit with a longer club left will hit the slope and could easily end up in a watery grave

Hole 5

A real birdie chance but will require an accurate tee shot, possibly with an iron, as it is all downhill. Try to avoid going left as you wont see your ball land in the rough. The right hand side of the fairway will give you the best line into an elevated green. Before all this though, be sure to take in the spectacular panoramic from the tee. On a clear day, the Lake District Fells will greet you to the left, whilst Ingleborough looms over you to the right.

Hole 6

A cheeky par 3, this hole is trickier than it first appears.Lurking to the right and just short of the green are 2 hidden bunkers. Be careful when selecting your club as the sheltered setting of the tee may confuse you with the wind direction.
