A demanding hole measuring 554 yards straight up hill and more often than not directly into the wind. At times this hole plays more like 654 yards.

A fairly generous fairway but a couple of lakes to the left will catch any pulled drive.

The second shot needs to be well placed bringing you to around the 100 yard mark for your third shot to a large green flanked by huge greenside bunkers on the right.

Another very tricky green which is possible to reach in two blows but not many golfers manage it.

A three putt is always a possibility on the final green.

The Manor is an excellent course. Well varied fairways and bunker obstacles. Good variety with water features as well. Greens are now coming on well. The green keeper's are always doing a fine job keeping the course in great condition. The pro shop are always welcoming and accommodating to enquires. The tee areas are well marked and have map boards. The back 4 holes are a tester with a great 18th hole with 8 bunkers. This is overlooked by the 19th clubhouse which is very good and serves great food.

The club has its own driving range and a great 6 hole par 3 tester, great idea especially for families. Richard the pro is always on hand and has a good professional approach and his staff always friendly. Most of my friends like the course and club and say it's not the easiest but a great challenge. I would highly recommend The Manor golf course. They have a great membership deal on at the moment check it out.
