The course is situated between the hills of Dartmouth, and it winds half way up a few of those hills too. Its loooonnnggg, 7200 from the blues on the Championship course. There is also a 9 holer too. Starting out from high up beside the clubhouse/hotel, you won't see much trouble as the 1st is pretty straight, until you get to the 2nd a short par4, unfortunately only the brave, or the locals, are likely to play this a reachable par 4 as you have to know which tree to cut over and then hope the green is clear before blasting it. Onto the 3rd and one of the prettiest holes I've ever seen. The tee is set high on the hill over a lake to the green way down below. With a big rock face on the left and sharp drop to the right the choice of club is going to be crucial for this, but it can be very rewarding to see you ball on the green. Then on to the snaking par 5 that will quickly make grown men cry with a precise drive and 2nd shot (if its still on the fairway) only leaving you a further precise wedge to the green which has another pond next to it. Its all about position on this hole as a stream runs down the left and a huge hillside on the right that will catch anything not down the middle. The back nine concludes with a couple of par 5's. The 9th is another one for locals, as you can't see the green until your third shot. Giving breathtaking views across to Paignton and the sea, you will hope the wind isn't blowing too much when up there. Watch out for the 12th/13th as a good drive can often get a nasty kick down to the sheep on the right. 14/15/16 need good drives to give you a chance but reward for the longer hitters is there. The signature hole 18th is stunning. A drop from the hillside to the green next to the clubhouse, across a lake to the full view of everyone in the bar and balcony. If your playing the blue tee then I hope your hybrid is strong and upto the job as hitting 3 wood to such a par 3 is going to be tough proposition.
