Hole 1 - 422 yard - Par 4

Lambourne Golf Club

A challenging opening hole from an elevated tee with a large imposing oak tree in the fairway. The tee shot requires a drive to the right hand side short of the bunker or for the long hitter the option of driving over the tree. The green is guarded by two bunkers and slopes from back to front meaning that going through the green is not the best option.

Hole 2 - 492 yard - Par 5

Lambourne Golf Club

The shortest par 5 on the course and a definite birdie opportunity for the better player. The ideal tee shot starts towards the right half of the fairway and moves gently back to the left avoiding the fairway bunker on the right and out of bounds left. The approach to the green which is above you plays a little longer than the yardage suggests so take plenty of club to avoid finding the greenside bunker.

Hole 3 - 417 yard - Par 4

Lambourne Golf Club

A lovely par 4 which doglegs gently from left to right. The tee shot is played through an avenue of trees and ideally keeps to the right hand side of the fairway. The approach is played to a large green below you with a ditch running across the fairway 60 yards short of the green. Beware the green which slopes from front to back and left to right.

Hole 4 - 518 yard - Par 5

Lambourne Golf Club

For long hitters, the green is reachable in two, for others a mid/long iron second shot short of the water leaves a pitch to large green.

Hole 5 - 196 yard - Par 3

Lambourne Golf Club

The longest par 3 on the course at 196 yards. This hole plays into the prevailing wind and with bunkers left and right and the green sloping from front to back only the best struck shots will find the putting surface.

Hole 6 - 448 yard - Par 4

Lambourne Golf Club

A testing par 4 to an elevated green. The tee shot needs to find the fairway to give a good chance of reaching in two. The approach shot is played to a wide green but anything short will roll back down the hill at the front. A par at this hole is difficult and will make you very happy.

Hole 7 - 158 yard - Par 3

Lambourne Golf Club

A relatively short par 3 played across water to a long narrow green which slopes from right to left towards the greenside bunker. Any tee shot missing the green makes par very difficult so club selection is all important from the tee.

Hole 8 - 446 yard - Par 4

Lambourne Golf Club

The most inviting tee shot on the course. A long par 4 played from an elevated position sets up toward the bunker on the left hand side of the fairway. After finding the fairway a long approach shot is played to a green which is protected by a bunker on the right and slopes predominantly from right to left and back to front.

Hole 9 - 326 yard - Par 4

Lambourne Golf Club

The shortest par 4 on the golf course. The ideal tee shot is played between the two fairway bunkers and short of the ha-ha which runs across the fairway at around 250 yards. The second shot needs to carry the two bunkers to set up your birdie chance.

Hole 10 - 400 yard - Par 4

Lambourne Golf Club

A generous tee shot to a fairway which slopes from left to right towards the fairway bunker. Tee shots to the left half of the fairway leave the best angle for the approach shot to the green which is played over a lake to within 30 yards of the green. If your tee shot is not well struck you may want to consider laying up short of the water leaving a simple shot to a fairly flat green which is protected by a bunker on the right hand side that covers the length of the green.

Hole 11 - 438 yard - Par 4

Lambourne Golf Club

Stroke index 1. The most testing tee shot on the course with trees strategically placed both left and right. A long approach shot is played to a narrow two tiered green which is 40 yards long and guarded by bunkers on both sides.

Hole 13 - 181 yard - Par 3

Lambourne Golf Club

A very strong par 3 played to a green below you. Four deep bunkers surround the green which slopes severely from back to front with a plateau at the back of the green. A three is always a good score here.

Hole 14 - 542 yard - Par 5

Lambourne Golf Club

The longest hole on the course at 542 yards. The tee shot is played across the driveway with two fairway bunkers on the left hand side which may catch the longer hitters. A good second shot should leave an approach to a wide and shallow green with the premium on distance control to avoid the greenside bunkers.

Hole 15 - 374 yard - Par 4

Lambourne Golf Club

A demanding tee shot which is ideally played between the water hazard on the right and the bunker on the left. The approach shot is played to a green slightly above you and with dead ground just in front plays longer than it looks. If the flag is at the back of the green make sure you take enough club as short leaves limited chances of two putts.

Hole 17 - 148 yard - Par 3

Lambourne Golf Club

The shortest par 3 on the course requires a tee shot that is well struck in order to carry a deep bunker which stretches across the width of the green. If the flag is on the left beware of the pot bunker at the back of the green. Club selection is always tricky as the wind tends to swirl around the tee.

Hole 18 - 412 yard - Par 4

Lambourne Golf Club

An extremely challenging finishing hole played from the back tees. The ideal tee shot is played to a fairway which slopes back towards the tee, between the trees with some right to left movement to follow the fairway. Plenty of club needs to be taken to reach this green which is elevated and protected by deep bunkers on both sides with a spine that runs the length of the green from back to front. If the money is still up for grabs playing for a five is not a bad idea!
