What Tips or Local Knowledge Would You Provide To Help Them Score Better At Your Course?
This is a course where you need to play conservative. Hit your tee shot towards that 150 markers and aim for the middle of the green!
What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
The most talked about hole would be #6 at Crowfield. This dog leg right offers a very challenging tee shot. The fairway is well protected by bunkers and water the guards the right side. An accurate tee shot is required to provide an opportunity to score. The green is undulating and is protected by a large pond in the front and a tough bunker if you go long. Middle of the fairway, middle of the green!
What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
My favorite hole is the finishing hole at Crowfield. This 600 yard Par 5 is a double dog leg with a ditch that crosses the fairway 240 yards from the green. This is definitely a 3 shot hole and should be played that way. The 3rd shot is hit into a green that is protect by a bunker, but is a great opportunity to make a birdie.
Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
We have an excellent selection of craft beer at a very affordable price.
