Peter Alliss' Course Guide




« Back Next »
Years ago, the 10th used to be the first hole, until the nines were reversed. It's downhill, a dogleg, and I think this is one of the most beautiful holes on the course.

It's got a big swinging fairway all downhill and if you're big enough and strong enough you can get it down onto a flat bit, but if not you're stuck on the slope, which doesn't make it easy.

The green drops away on the left hand side, there's a big bunker on the right, trees all around and usually when the players get round there, particularly the second half of the field, big shadows are cast across the green, making finding the flag and judging the distance difficult.

Miss on the left and you've got a very difficult chip up. And, again, if you're in the wrong spot here, the greens can be very treacherous.
