Description

The eighteenth leading down to the clubhouse provides, as befits a final hole, the most inviting of drives with the bonus of an unhindered view of the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground on the other side of the river and the castle to the right. But there are dangers. There is room on the left but that soon turns into unplayable rough while any of the trees on the way can easily obscure a shot to the green. The problems on the other side are potentially greater. The ideal tee-shot is down the left hand side but a drive straight down the middle will end left. Yet, however short, never under-estimate the approach shot nor the resultant putt. The green is narrow, slopes sufficiently from the right to throw even a firmly struck shot off left while the variation in gradient means no guarantee of two putts. It might be the most likely hole for a birdie but, most times, a par is highly satisfactory.
