Hole 13 "Broadwood"
If a tee-shot into the Ha-Ha is a rarity at the short twelth, one from the thirteenth is commonplace, with the ditch (and a fence further along) now parallel to the line of play on the left, providing a tight out of bounds. But the hole belies its name, although the trees, relatively young compared to the Park, still manage to narrow the hole on either side. Yet there is ample space really, but only on the far right. Closer to the fairway, a poor drive often ends in Hodgson's trench - a gravel based drainage ditch running in the direction of the hole - while, all too often, even a good tee shot can be hindered by a large hawthorn bush intruding well into the right hand side of the hole. A straight drive, though, leaves an attractive second shot, the fairway sloping gently to the green. But a mishit in either direction leaves a trying shot from the long grass surrounding the numerous groups of trees. The green entrance is narrow, with the boundary fence now only a few paces to its the left, while the collection of bunkers front right require a controlled recovery shot, with always the slim chance of carrying over the fence.
