Pro’s Tip: Try to put your tee shot down the right half of the fairway to leave the easiest approach to the green.
Pro’s Tip: The gulley at 230 yards should be avoided, either play short with a iron or fairway wood or take driver and try to carry it, leaving a much shorter shot. Hitting driver brings the out of bounds on the left and the trees on the right into play but if they can be avoided it’s a good birdie chance.
Pro’s Tip: Toughest hole on the front 9. Play safe, hit tee shot to the corner, then play second shot, taking an extra club to the back left corner of the green. A four here is always a good score.
Pro’s Tip: Birdie chance! A short par 4 which can be reached by the longer hitters. Has an extremely sloping green, which is it’s main defence. Try to leave your approach shot below the hole or you will be faced with a very difficult 2 putt.
Pro’s Tip: A good drive needed to avoid a blind second shot.
Pro’s Tip: A short par 3, which plays one club less than the yardage suggests. Miss the green to the left and you’r left with a very tough up and down.
Pro’s Tip: Par 5, longer hitters can go for the green in two. Otherwise two good hits over the gulley leaves a short iron to the green, which plays one more club than you think.
Pro’s Tip: Club selection vital on this short par 3. Hit the greeen and you have a good chance at birdie on one of the flatter greens on the course.
Pro’s Tip: Another short par 4 for the longer hitters to have a go at. The rest of us should use a club that takes the tree in the middle of the fairway out of play to leave an easier approach. The green and the next tee provides some of the best views in the county.
Pro’s Tip: Toughest par 4 on the course. Mid to high handicap golfers play as a par 5. Low handicap and long hitting golfers going for the green in 2. Try not to miss the green on the right as this leaves an almost impossible up and down.
Pro’s Tip: Uphill short par 3 with a long narrow green, which slopes right to left more than you think. Usually plays a club more than the yardage suggests
Pro’s Tip: Open the shoulders on this great driving par 5, with a great view stretching some 30 miles or so to the west. A big drive should leave a chance to get up in two. Hit your approach shot towards the right edge of the green.
Pro’s Tip: Tricky par 4 with a lateral water hazard running almost the entire length of the hole. It has to be crossed, the big hitters taking it on with their tee shot. Otherwise play up the right and cross with your second shot using an extra club.
Pro’s Tip: Arguably the signature hole at Braehead. This downhill par 3 is well bunkered with out of bounds lurking. A good solid mid to long iron will be rewarded with a flatish putt and a birdie chance. Don’t forget the wind on this sheltered hole.
Pro’s Tip: A good par 4, out of bounds on the left, with trees and a bunker on the right to avoid from the tee. A new bunker to the left middle of the fairway is there to catch the big hitters. Three bunkers guard a green that slopes from front right to back left.
Pro’s Tip: Great risk and reward hole. Reachable par 4 where out of bounds guards the left and a burn lies about 230 yards from the tee. Taking driver sets up a real birdie chance or maybe even an eagle.
Pro’s Tip: Long tough dog leg par 4. A good drive is needed past two fairway bunkers on the right and a water hazard on the left. This leaves a long iron or wood to probably the flattest green on the course. 5 is never a disaster here.
Pro’s Tip: Strong finishing hole. two bunkers guard the left half of the fairway one at approximately 220 yards from the tee, the second is 240yards on this demanding uphill tee shot. A drive getting over the hill can leave a mid iron to a well bunkered smallish target. 4 is always a great score to finish with.
