Favourite hole:

8th - What Puttenham is all about, has changed little, thinking all the way, working your way around the course, watch out there could be a 6/7 or worse waiting for you!

9th - Usually par it

Most disliked hole: 14th - Two poor shots will get you there with a probable par. Two “nearly” good shots can wreck a card. 14th

7th - The chance to steer a mid-iron second shot through the gap and set up an inviting approach shot to a visible and receptive green.

3rd - Such a confidence builder!
Most disliked hole: 8th - The 2nd shot is such a lottery due to the elevated undulating green! 7th - Requires three consecutive good shots. Most unusual for me!

Favourite hole: 9th. Play an attacking drive followed by a good pitch can be very rewarding, especially followed by an egg burger and tea! Jointly :11th, 12th, 13th  - Puttenham's 'Amen Corner'.
Most disliked hole: 5th. A really tricky par 3. The length makes club selection difficult and that bunker! I love the challenge of all of them!
