LANSDOWNE HOLE GUIDE
A reasonably generous opening tee shot but safety is all important on the second shot. Best to lay up short of the cross bunker and play this as a genuine "3 Shotter".
A very tight tee shot - Think about a 3 wood or long iron off the tee. Take plenty of club for your second - All the trouble is short.
Tee shot should be aimed slightly left of centre. From here a short approach to the small green can set up a birdie chance.
A good drive is required to bring this tough Par 4 in range of 2 shots. The bunker short right of the green can make the second deceptive - Take plenty of club.
A long tough Par 5 keep slightly left from the tee and put a premium on accuracy with your second - again 5 here is never bad!
Once again the premium is on accuracy from the tee. Best line to open up the green is from the right half of this fairway.
A long shot is rewarded here. This hole opens up slightly after 200yds or so. The green slopes gently from back to front and will reward a bold approach shot.
A super dog-leg Par 4. A drive just right of centre gives the best line in to a long narrow target. Check the pin position - it is nearly 3 clubs from front to back!
A demanding Par 3. It's all carry to the green so enough club. This is a generous green and will reward a well struck shot.
An easier tee shot this time - A drive to the right centre will open up the wide but shallow green - Take care with your club selection here.
A truly awesome Par 5. There is a bit of room to the right with your tee shot (avoid the horse-riders!) But always play safe with an iron for your second. Treat this 3 shotter with the respect it deserves or it can destroy you!
A wonderful finishing hole. Aim slightly left from the tee as the fairway will throw your ball to the right. It's all carry to the green and try to hit the correct part of this 2 tiered green - 3 putts up or down the slope are not uncommon!
