Manor House Course Planner: Individual Hole Analysis

Hole 1 Par 4
BAILEY

Practice Green at Manor House

BLACK 363 YARDS | WHITE 341 YARDS | YELLOW 301 YARDS | RED 283 YARDS

This hole is set on the edge of the mott and bailey fortification.

The opening drive needs to carry over a part of this. Once on the fairway, a short iron should remain to a narrow, yet deep, green that can prove difficult to hit.

There is little space long and left, so be careful not to over club.


Hole 2 Par 3
DIPPER BRIDGE

Hole 2 at Manor House

BLACK 151 YARDS | WHITE 151 YARDS | YELLOW 132 YARDS | RED 118 YARDS

One of several holes that meander their way through the stunning Bybrook Valley.

A scenic par 3 that requires a mid to low iron to seemingly generous target. However, looks can be deceptive!

Hitting the green is very important as the Bybrook is awaiting any stray tee shots. The green is undulating, so very seldom will you have an easy putt.

With Out of Bounds long and bunkers guarding the front and right, this is a truly great short hole.


Hole 3 Par 5
HATCH

Manor House Hole 3 View From The Tee

BLACK 600 YARDS | WHITE 554 YARDS | YELLOW 500 YARDS | RED 430 YARDS

The longest hole on the course and only reachable in two by the longest hitters.

The hole itself is dead straight and played down a narrow avenue of trees.

Accuracy is the key. Well placed fairway bunkers threaten your drive. Plenty of thought must be given to the second shot where a large fairway bunker on the right must be avoided.

The green is protected by bunkers to the left and trees right. There is a ridge running through the middle, so hitting the correct level is critical.


Hole 4 Par 3
DUNSTAVILLE

Manor House Hole 4 View From The Tee

BLACK 220 YARDS | WHITE 198 YARDS | YELLOW 187 YARDS | RED 151 YARDS

A long and tricky Par 3.

Between tee and green is a huge bunker and, to the right of the green, two more bunkers.

The green is long and narrow and is set at an angle and slopes from right to left.

The tee shot that finds the putting surface is a good one, but the sand wedge is more than likely going to be needed.


Hole 5 Par 4
TRIANGLE

BLACK 467 YARDS | WHITE 459 YARDS | YELLOW 426 YARDS | RED 357 YARDS

A stunning Par 4 that would challenge anyone. 

The hole doglegs to the right with bunkers on the right that only the very long way wish to take on.

With trees down the left, grassy hollows strategically placed, additional bunkers, a lake on the right and an extremely narrow green, anyone making par here has performed admirably!

Beware – when playing the 5th any ball coming to rest on or beyond the 6th is Out of Bounds!


Hole 6 Par 5
LAKE

Manor House 6th Tee

BLACK 507 YARDS | WHITE 498 YARDS | YELLOW 475 YARDS | RED 423 YARDS

This mid length Par 5 doglegs to the left.

The tee shot is played over water, but the mound on the corner can hamper access to the green, which is long and narrow.

The large oak tree and the hollow to the right provide protection for the green.

A definite birdie opportunity.


Hole 7 Par 5
MACKENZIE

BLACK 549 YARDS | WHITE 489 YARDS | YELLOW 475 YARDS | RED 411 YARDS

If the previous 6 holes tested your accuracy off the tee, then this hole will definitely make you think!

The hole doglegs to the left with a drive that must negotiate the avenue of trees.

The green can be reached in 2 by the long hitters, but the smart play is a lay up leaving a wedge to the green.

This hole will certainly reward players who shape the ball, but beware – the lake on the left is Out of Bounds!


Hole 8 Par 4
STEPPING STONES

Manor House Hole 8

BLACK 309 YARDS | WHITE 295 YARDS | YELLOW 276 YARDS | RED 239 YARDS

A stunning hole falling back down the valley. 

The green is certainly reachable from the tee, but will require both distance and accuracy to hit the target.

Danger runs up the left side in the form of the Bybrook – beware as in and over the River Bybrook is ‘Out of Bounds’ when playing this hole. A definite birdie chance.


Hole 9 Par 3
CASTLE

Manor House 9th Green

BLACK 183 YARDS | WHITE 183 YARDS | YELLOW 172 YARDS | RED 162 YARDS

A testing Par 3 not only because of its length but also due to a raised green that has three levels and is extremely narrow.

Avoid the deep bunker at the front of the green.


Hole 10 Par 4
OLD PLANTATION

BLACK 378 YARDS | WHITE 370 YARDS | YELLOW 364 YARDS | RED 356 YARDS

Hitting the fairway is paramount due to the mounding on the both sides.

The ideal tee shot is one that is drawn, hugging the left side.

The green is well guarded with bunkers left and mounds on the right. Beware – Out of Bounds is on the driving range to the left defined beyond the staked trees!


Hole 11 Par 3
SCHOOL

BLACK 222 YARDS | WHITE 213 YARDS | YELLOW 168 YARDS | RED 150 YARDS

This is seriously challenging Par 3, especially from the back tee.

Although downhill, the hole still plays long, as it is normally into the prevailing wind. 

With Out of Bounds left, trees right and a green well protected by bunkers, a par once again is a very good score.


Hole 12 Par 5
DOOLITTLE

The 12th Hole at Manor House

BLACK 498 YARDS | WHITE 477 YARDS | YELLOW 446 YARDS | RED 430 YARDS

One of the most visually stunning Par 5’s you are likely to see.

The hole doglegs across a valley, with heavy rough, the River Bybrook, the lake and bunkers to negotiate before you reach the green.

Take a fairway wood of long iron off the tee to ensure playing your second from the short grass. The green can be reached in two but it requires a long shot.

The green undulates and hardly has a straight putt. The best of luck!


Hole 13 Par 4
BROADMEAD BROOK

13th Hole at Manor House Golf Club

BLACK 289 YARDS | WHITE 289 YARDS | YELLOW 264 YARDS | RED 239 YARDS

Despite its length this hole plays extremely tough.

The tee shot is narrow so a long iron can be used for accuracy, but a driver would enable you to get closer to the green.

Again, hitting the fairway is important to give an even stance for your second, but bear in mind that if you can make the carry there may actually be more room to the right than you think.

Level par through here and you have done very well!


Hole 14 Par 4
NETTLETON

BLACK 332 YARDS | WHITE 332 YARDS | YELLOW 322 YARDS | RED 319 YARDS

Perhaps a bit of respite!

The hole doglegs very slightly to the right. Although not a long hole, the fairway is narrow and requires a straight tee shot.

Avoid the bunkers and the mounds to leave an approach that gives you a chance of making 3.

Anything short will end up in one of the greenside bunkers.


Hole 15 Par 4
FOSSEWAY

Manor House 15th Hole at The Green

BLACK 492 YARDS | WHITE 492 YARDS | YELLOW 436 YARDS | RED 411 YARDS

A par 5 from the black, white and red tees that will test accuracy off the tee, your long game for your second and probably your short game for your third! 

The fairway is wide, but from the tee it looks intimidating with the trees left and right.

Your second shot requires a carry across two huge bunkers to get on, so a lay up is often the wiser choice.

The green is long and has further protection with bunkers right and a grassy hollow left.


Hole 16 Par 4
GATCOMBE

Manor House 16th Green

BLACK 402 YARDS | WHITE 375 YARDS | YELLOW 364 YARDS | RED 338 YARDS

A tight Par 4 that doglegs to the right.

Take care over your club selection on the tee as the fairway is very narrow.

The bunker and trees on the left are to be avoided. A blocked drive behind the trees on the right will definitely prevent access to the putting surface.

The approach to the triangular shaped green tests your accuracy. Missing the green will leave a difficult up and down from sand traps of grassy bunkers.


Hole 17 Par 3
BURTON BROOK

Manor House 17th Green

BLACK 154 YARDS | WHITE 139 YARDS | YELLOW 127 YARDS | RED 125 YARDS

A simply breathtaking hole!

The hole drops down 120 feet to two greens which give variation – and both play differently.

The right green has the River Bybrook protecting the left side and the front.

The left green undulates and has bunkers and water at the back to pick up misguided shots.

Club selection and judgement of distance are vital to hit the greens, but please use the Drop Zones if you find the River Bybrook.


Hole 18 Par 4
WOODBURY

18th Green at Manor House

BLACK 384 YARDS | WHITE 377 YARDS | YELLOW 365 YARDS | RED 322 YARDS

A classic finishing hole.

Often described as the prettiest finishing hole in England!

The drive is narrow with trouble left and right. Aim at the large tree and fade or draw to the fairway.

The right side offers safety, but the left gives a more direct approach to the green.

A four here will definitely hit the spot.
