Hole 1
Hole 1 is a challenging opening hole that dog legs to the right requiring a good drive off the tee. Aim at the post in the fairway for a clear view into the green for the second shot.
DISTANCE:
White - 343yds
Yellow - 318yds
Red - 282yds
Hole 2
The second is a reachable Par 5 for the longer hitters, but most will want to aim for the post in the fairway for a clear view into the green. Watch out for the green, it slopes heavily from right to left.
DISTANCE:
White - 499yds
Yellow - 476yds
Red - 387yds
Hole 3
The third hole is a long par 4 that will require a good drive. Aim just left off the tree in the middle of the fairway. The green is well protected by bunkers, one of which is 6ft deep!
DISTANCE:
White - 439yds
Yellow - 418yds
Red - 379yds
Hole 4
The first par 3 on the golf course requires accuracy. It’s slightly uphill and will require an extra club off the tee. Avoid going right as the steep bank will take the ball down the slope.
DISTANCE:
White - 156yds
Yellow - 142yds
Red - 130yds
Hole 5
Hole 5 is the most picturesque hole on the golf course. The tee is the most elevated tee position in Hampshire giving some fantastic views. The fairway slopes from right to left so favour the right hand side with the drive. Don’t forget to take your photo and tag us @oldthorns!
DISTANCE:
White - 353yds
Yellow - 320yds
Red - 295yds
Hole 6
This is a challenging Par 5 with out of bounds hugging the left side of the hole and water running down the right. There is a ditch across the fairway, so the ideal landing zone is just before the ditch.
DISTANCE:
White - 532yds
Yellow - 520yds
Red - 397yds
Hole 7
Hole 7 is our second par 3. A relatively short hole with water protecting it. Be careful not to be drawn in by a front pin position and hit enough club to carry the water.
DISTANCE:
White - 161yds
Yellow - 146yds
Red - 93yds
Hole 8
Hole 8 is a narrow par 4 with water down the right hand side. Ideal shot off the tee is just right of the tree. Venture too far left and you’ll be blocked out by trees and venture too far right and you’ll make a splash.
DISTANCE:
White - 366yds
Yellow - 346yds
Red - 312yds
Hole 9
Hole 9 is a risk reward hole because it is a reachable par 4 if your brave enough to go for it. The green is protected by bunkers which makes it a challenging shot. If not, a good layup is just short of the first bunker for a full wedge shot in.
DISTANCE:
White - 241yds
Yellow - 224yds
Red - 207yds
Hole 10
Hole 10 is the hardest par 3 on the golf course. Its a long and intimidating carry of the white tees with water short of the green. Plenty of club will be required to carry the water.
DISTANCE:
White - 216yds
Yellow - 193yds
Red - 129yds
Hole 11
For a good score on hole 11 a good position off the tee is crucial. In the middle of the fairway short of the lake is the perfect shot and will leave a short shot into the green.
DISTANCE:
White - 355yds
Yellow - 323yds
Red - 302yds
Hole 12
Hole 12 dog legs slightly to the right. Favour the left side of the fairway for the better view into the green on the second shot.
DISTANCE:
White - 426yds
Yellow - 366yds
Red - 315yds
Hole 13
Hole 13 is a slight dog leg to the left. Favour the right hand side with the drive for a clear view into the green. Avoid the deep green side bunker at all costs.
DISTANCE:
White - 359yds
Yellow - 340yds
Red - 327yds
Hole 14
Hole 14 is a picturesque tee shot through the trees to the narrow fairway. The green slopes heavily from back to front so avoid hitting it past the pin.
DISTANCE:
White - 510yds
Yellow - 492yds
Red - 440yds
Hole 15
Hole 15 at just 264yds off the back tees is a reachable par 4 for longer hitters. The uphill slope and dog leg left makes the drive not for the faint hearted. The safe shot here would be layup to the fairway and have a short shot up to the green. Watch out for the 2 tiered green which can make for a very tricky putt.
DISTANCE:
White - 264yds
Yellow - 246yds
Red - 219yds
Hole 16
Hole 16 is a tough par 3. Hitting the green is crucial and favouring the right side is ideal as the green slopes heavily from right to left.
DISTANCE:
White - 158yds
Yellow - 131yds
Red - 115yds
Hole 17
Hole 17 is a Par 5 at 489yds, a good shot off the tee will give an opportunity to hit the green in two. The ideal drive lands to the right hand side of the bunkers.
DISTANCE:
White - 489yds
Yellow - 444yds
Red - 423yds
Hole 18
Hole 18 is stoke index 1 and the hardest hole on the golf course. It dog legs slightly to the left, so favour the right hand side of the fairway for a clear shot into the green.
DISTANCE:
White - 421yds
Yellow - 413yds
Red - 296yds
