This relatively straightforward par 3 plays long due to some dead ground in front of the green. The bunker should not present a problem as it comes more into play on the 18th. A flat green, no trees, no punishing rough – a good birdie opportunity; perhaps.

Studdon Straight is so named because the land above the golf course is called High Studdon and the 9th fairway points in a straight line to its upper reaches. This apparently straightforward shot can prove frustrating – Anything short stays there whilst any over-exuberance will be rewarded with a fleeting visit to the putting surface. Once you arrive, be aware that it is the fastest green on the course but don’t let that put you off.
