Our Favourite holes
The 14th hole which is a par 4 is stroke index 1. As the index indicates this is the hardest hole on the course and is really well set up. There is a tree on the left hand side of the fairway at 235 meters and the doglegs to the left. If you can drive to the left of the tree the hole plays much shorter but you then run the risk of the internal out of bounds which runs until 100 meters short of the green. A great golf hole
