This 18 hole course measuring 5154yards off the competition tees will be of interest to golfers of all abilities. With a very competitive green fee, Pine Valley offers a modern design and great value for money.
The large, undulating U.S.G.A greens have been designed to allow players to run the ball onto them rather than having to fly the ball through the air. This allows the more imaginative golfers to play a wide variety of approach shots to the flag. There is much less emphasis on the golfer’s ability to get the ball airborne for long distances and is therefore less punishing for the beginner. There are lakes and bunkers, though they are placed to catch the very wayward shot, leaving a much greater margin for error in comparison to our Willow Valley Course.
The 6th is its signature hole with three options of playing towards the green. A “risk and reward” par 4 with a green which can be driven from the tee, though water lurks to catch the ball which doesn’t carry the full distance.
You can also play around the water to the green, with a long iron or wood leaving a short pitch to the flag without having to play over the lake. Or the third option is to hit a mid iron towards and short of the water and leave yourself a fuller shot over the lake into the flag
£15 for 3 1/2 hours of thorough enjoyment
