As its name implies, water is everywhere! The opening four holes of the Lakes provide a tough start to any round – be it your initial induction or when commencing the back nine.
The relentlessly ruthless start – a par 444 yard par four, 515 yard par five, 205 yard par three and 403 yard par four stretch of holes – presents as much a mental battle as a golfing one.
No more so is that true than the 21st – a 205 yard par three requiring a long iron over a big lake into a green surrounded by bunkers and bordered by thick woodland. Not a shot for the fainthearted.
