Par 4, 318 yard 10th (Luke Donald's Ace)

The aptly named Luke Donald's Ace is the course's proudest hole but potentially the easiest with a very inviting birdie chance.

A strong long iron or even three wood, could leave you close enough to have a 60 degree wedge-in and with the pin normally set at the back, you've got green to work with for the approach.

In his heyday I'm sure Luke wouldhave relished this hole, as it rewards pin-point accuracy and distance control. Get it right and you'll get a confidence boost ready to face the tricky back nine.


An idylic setting with almost every hole offering up a new challenge. With tactical nous required throughout, it's a test for any high or low handicapper. This is a fantastic course but you can't get away from the £56 price-tag. That said, with the current £25 offer, I guess you can. So get down there now to take advantage of Donald's first course.
