Broadwood

Par 4, Yards 378, Stroke Index 7

Description

If a tee-shot finishing in the Ha-Ha ditch is a rarity at the short twelfth, at this hole it is commonplace with the ditch now parallel to the line of play on the left, providing a tight out of bounds turning into a fence when the ditch runs out. This hole belies its name, Broadwood, as the trees narrow it on the right hand side. There is ample space, but only on the far right and on the parallel fourteenth hole. 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 Birch tree (affectionately known as Schmeichel),  intruding well into the right hand side of the fairway. A straight drive 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 numerous groups of trees. The green entrance is narrow with the boundary fence only a few paces to its the left, while the collection of bunkers right and left require a controlled recovery shot to save par.
