Castle

Par 4, Yards 381, Stroke Index 6

Description

Lumley Castle creates a lofty and majestic backdrop looking down on the fairway and provides a line from the tee either at its center or left hand tower. For many, the drive from a medal tee hard up against the out of bounds fence is intimidating, even reaching a flat lie on the fairway is an achievement. Because of the slope a half-decent strike drifting right can all too readily finish in a small copse. The hole then turns left, all the time climbing steadily to a small two-tier green making it play longer than the measured length, except in a strong westerly wind. The deep bunker short and left of the green is to be avoided while the bunker digging into the centre right hand-side is visited surprisingly infrequently. This is perhaps because, when the pin is sited on the lower tier, a third or fourth shot from just short of the green is preferable to putting down from the upper tier. From there stopping a putt by the pin can be an art form.
