Hole 11 "Clubhouse Corner"
A short but craftily designed par four with much of the play determined by a small copse of ancient beech trees, straddling the direct route from tee to green, on the right hand side of the fairway. The drive, from a tee close by the Castle boundary, ought to offer few problems if held left to avoid the inevitable bounce towards the copse. And there is ample room further wide even if it doesn't appear so from the tee. However, the drive down the designer line must either be short of the two bunkers in the centre of the fairway or beyond. Too far though and the out of bounds of the road to the castle can come into play. Yet the approach, from the middle of the fairway down to river level, looks inviting enough. But beware. The green is small, very narrow at the front, delighting in throwing slightly mis-placed shots off either side or, worse, the back. Itís the sort of hole where a three beckons on the tee but all too often is converted into a five, occasionally more.
