Details for Hole Twelve
In the spring the teeing area on the 12th is reminiscent of Augusta, with magnificent azaleas and rhododendrons surrounding the pond that lies in front of the white tees!
This deceptive par 4 of just under 400 yards requires an accurate tee shot aimed towards the left side of the fairway. The slope of the fairway should bring the ball back to the right side for a better shot into the elevated green. If you stay on the left side of the fairway, you will need to be able to execute a draw [right-handed] to find the green with your approach, which is beyond many club players!
Any shot played short or right of the green will require a deft touch to get up the bank and close to the hole. Many players use the steep bank to the left of the green as a “get out” and allow the ball to run back down the slope and on to the putting surface.
The green itself is large and relatively flat, but like many Puttenham greens, has some subtle borrows.
No bunkers on this hole.
