This is a nine hole golf course but, each of the last two holes can be played in two ways. They each have two tees and two greens. There is a 5a and a 5b as well as a 6a and 6b.
The US Open Hole.
The opening hole is a replica of the 6th at Riviera. A par 3, 205 yards from the blue tee. Across a stream to a narrow green with a bunker in the centre, when I played it, the pin was at the front, it would get a lot tougher if it was at the back.
The Walker Cup Hole.
Hole 2 represents the 14th at Ganton. A par 4, 323 yards. The fairway narrows considerably close to the green so it wise to place your tee shot 100 yards back, avoiding the fairway bunkers, for an easy approach to a wide shallow green.
The US PGA Hole.
The third hole is a replica of the 6th at Oak Hill. A 194 yard par 3. The green is very shapely and narrows to the back, it is protected by three bunkers and if the pin is at the back you will have to chance the bunkers to get there.
The Ryder Cup Hole.
The 4th represents the 9th at the Belfry (illustrated above). A 368 yard par 4. As well as the stream across the fairway and the pond to the right of the green, there is a large tree standing in the middle of the fairway just across the stream. Place your tee shot well.
The Open Championship Holes.
Hole 5a represents the 12th at Royal Birkdale. A 161 yard par 3 with a tricky green.
5b represents the 8th at Royal Troon (the Postage Stamp). A 118 yard par 3. It has a very narrow green and is very well bunkered.
A huge mound separates these two greens, a tough hazard which ever hole you are playing.
The Masters Holes.
Hole 6a is a replica of the 16th at Augusta. A 158 yard par 3. There is a lake front and left, three bunkers, one back left one back right and one front right. The green slopes severely right to left and back to front. A tough hole to par.
is a replica of the 12th at Augusta. A 151 yard par 3. The wide shallow green is protected by the same lake as 6a but this time you have to play across it. There is a bunker front right and two more at the back. Another tough par 3.
