The Warwickshire (Earls Course)
The front nine continues to play through mature woodlands, with notable highlights being the 4th, a long dog-leg par 5 measuring in at over 600 yards, and the signature 7th (below), an arrow straight par 4 from an elevated tee with trees left and right ready to catch any wayward drives. The back nine is slightly more open and a little shorter, but no less demanding. Highlights include the 12th - a lovely par 4 which sweeps down towards a green surrounded by trees and protected by a stream in front. A little respite follows, with opportunity to gain ground with three relatively short holes, but you’re then faced with the 16th - SI 1, and 430 yards to navigate with bunkers ready and waiting to catch you out from the tee and around the green - par here is a really great score as you start to wrap up your round.
