The Course

A beautiful 18 hole parkland course...

Our woodland course is designed on two levels, Holes 2 to 11 circle the hills and have fine scenic views with undulating fairways and some interesting lies.

The 12th Hole, from its elevated tee, is played down to a double green in front of the Clubhouse. It is a short dog-leg par 4 which can be driven by the longest hitters.

The remainder of the holes play along the valley where accurate drives are essential. The 13th Hole is a difficult par 5 with ditches crossing the fairway in two locations. The second shot must be positioned with care.

Scorecard

Pros Tip

A tee shot aimed at the right half of the fairway will tend to run back to the middle. Take an extra club or two for the uphill second shot, avoiding the bunker on the right.

Hole 1 - Par 4

WHITE - 317 YARDS
YELLOW - 312 YARDS
RED - 303 YARDS

Pros Tip

Take dead aim at the marker post as the fairway slopes from left to right, then play for the middle of this 3 tiered green, a shot coming up left, right, short or long normally results in a dropped shot or three!

Hole 2 - Par 4

WHITE - 352 YARDS
YELLOW - 333 YARDS
RED - 321 YARDS

Pros Tip

This demanding stroke index 1 hole ideally requires a draw from the tee shot to counteract the camber of the fairway. The approach shot tends to run on from the front of the green so one less club may be necessary but be very careful to avoid the 3 large bunkers guarding this green.

Hole 3 - Par 4

WHITE - 435 YARDS
YELLOW - 400 YARDS
RED - 380 YARDS

Pros Tip

Big hitters will want to avoid hitting it too far up the fairway and being blocked out by the pine trees. An approach shot aimed left of the greenside bunker will often result in the ball kicking onto the green

Hole 4 - Par 4

WHITE - 369 YARDS
YELLOW - 358 YARDS
RED - 325 YARDS

Pros Tip

Try and avoid going right on this hole and this can prove difficult as the wind can change in the new land. The green is deceivingly long, however a shot to the middle of the green will not be too far away for a 2 putt or even a birdie. A little view of Glastonbury Tor will also be available on this hole.

Hole 5 - Par 3

WHITE - 142 YARDS
YELLOW - 138 YARDS
RED - 124 YARDS

Pros Tip

A risk and reward hole, bombers can take the corner on and go for the green, out of bounds, long rough await to the right and 2 bunkers guard the green. The more cautious drivers will aim at the water hazard on the left side of the hole to leave a moderate pitch to the green and hopefully a birdie.

Hole 6 - Par 4

WHITE - 306 YARDS
YELLOW - 297 YARDS
RED - 288 YARDS

Pros Tip

This hole plays longer than it looks and favours the faders of the ball. A shot aimed at the left half of the green fading in will bounce on nicely towards this large green.

Hole 7 - Par 3

WHITE - 179 YARDS
YELLOW - 167 YARDS
RED - 147 YARDS

Pros Tip

Course management required here but help is at hand with the two marker posts, aim at the first one with the tee shot but don’t draw it into the hazard on the left, fire the second shot over the second marker post and this should leave a relatively easy pitch. Anything coming up short tends to kick left into the greenside bunker.

Hole 8 - Par 5

WHITE - 513 YARDS
YELLOW - 502 YARDS
RED - 415 YARDS

Pros Tip

A picturesque par 4 where you want to thread your tee shot between the two trees that guard the fairway, the second shot requires some thought and you may want to aim at the middle of this small green as a wayward approach is likely end in one of the 3 bunkers.

Hole 9 - Par 4

WHITE - 370 YARDS
YELLOW - 342 YARDS
RED - 311 YARDS

Pros Tip

INSERT PROS TIP HEREYou have a decision to make at this cracking par 3, dead aim or a bounce off the bank from the right. Either way, make sure you hit it long enough to clear the out of bounds on the left.

Hole 10 - Par 3

WHITE - 171 YARDS
YELLOW - 166 YARDS
RED - 154 YARDS

Pros Tip

One of the toughest holes on the course with the smallest green on the course, a draw with a driver might get you a few extra yards with the sloping fairway but an errant shot and trouble awaits both sides. Try and run your second shot down the bank to the green. Walking off with a dropped shot here, is not so bad.

Hole 11 - Par 4

WHITE - 466 YARDS
YELLOW - 442 YARDS
RED - 436 YARDS

Pros Tip

Enjoy the view from this drop hole par 4. Long hitters may risk going for the green here but it may well be more sensible to lay up short of the fairway bunker on the right and chip on to the right hand flag of this large double green, try not to go past the pin though as the putt can be very treacherous.

Hole 12 - Par 4

WHITE - 305 YARDS
YELLOW - 290 YARDS
RED - 283 YARDS

Pros Tip

The longest hole on the course, a dog leg from left to right with a C shaped water hazard that you cross twice - hopefully. Thread your drive through the avenue of trees towards the marker post and you can clear the ditch for the first time, aim for the left corner of the green clear the ditch again and hope for the members bounce off the bank.

Hole 13 - Par 5

WHITE - 584 YARDS
YELLOW - 542 YARDS
RED - 527 YARDS

Pros Tip

A clever hole which can wreck a scorecard if you bite off more than you can. A 160 yard tee shot at the bottom of the right bank should put you in position to hit a mid/short iron on the green.

Hole 14 - Par 4

WHITE - 300 YARDS
YELLOW - 287 YARDS
RED - 278 YARDS

Pros Tip

Back to the double green, left flag this time. Big hitters may want to have a go at the green but trees and bunkers may get in the way. A gentle draw off the marker post of around 150 yards will leave a nice distance in, good birdie opportunity then but don’t underestimate the green.

Hole 15 - Par 4

WHITE - 268 YARDS
YELLOW - 251 YARDS
RED - 246 YARDS

Pros Tip

A good looking tree lined dog leg from right to left. Aim at the marker post here and leave a good yardage in to carry the ditch and hold the green. Regardless of pin position middle is good.

Hole 16 - Par 4

WHITE - 354 YARDS
YELLOW - 342 YARDS
RED - 332 YARDS

Pros Tip

Your last par 3 where leaking left can result in kicking into the ditch and 2 bunkers wait to the right. Take dead aim at the green, commit and a birdie can be bagged.

Hole 17 - Par 3

WHITE - 160 YARDS
YELLOW - 142 YARDS
RED - 130 YARDS

Pros Tip

This would be stroke index 1 hole if it was anywhere else on the course. Only a solid drive of 210 plus gives you a good chance of going for the green in two and you must clear a large bunker guarding the green to achieve this mean feat. Finishing with a 5 here, still might make the refreshments taste sweet in the 19th. Hope you enjoyed your game at Wells.

Hole 18 - Par 4

WHITE - 413 YARDS
YELLOW - 389 YARDS
RED - 380 YARDS
