A short but craftily designed par four with much of the play determined by a small copse of ancient trees on the right hand side of the fairway, straddling the direct route from tee to green. 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 left of the fairway or beyond. Too far though and the out of bounds of the road to the castle can come into play. The approach, from the middle of the fairway down to river level, can look inviting enough. But beware. The green is small, very narrow at the front, built up on three sides, delighting in throwing slightly misplaced shots off both left and right or, worse, the back. It’s the sort of hole where a three beckons on the tee but all too often is converted into a five, occasionally more.
