Hole 13

Oxhey View

A relatively straight tee shot down the left hand side is required if a birdie opportunity is to be had on this, the shortest par 4 on the course. A short iron approach to the right hand side will run on and left as it trickles downhill onto the green. The green itself is two-tiered and can be tricky if you don't find the correct level.

Member’S Tip:

The 13th hole now is much more challenging since the new bunker was built into the fairway. Personally, I still like to try and drive over or past this large bunker to the right so that I have a relatively short iron to a very difficult green that slopes downwards then rises to a plateaux at the back of the green. There is also a green side bunker on the left hand side and a difficult swale to chip out of on the right. Any approach going long leaves you with a very nasty chip back. So, although the hole is relatively short the large fairway bunker and hazards around the green can make what looks a simple hole quite difficult to par.
