The Course

The historic 18 Hole Championship Golf Course of Meyrick Park was established in 1894, set within 120 acres of undulating scenic parkland with verdant tree-lined fairways, provides a country setting in the heart of the town. The 18 Hole Championship Golf Course confronts golfers with a number of memorable challenges, most notably the opening 244-yard Par 3, where the driver is over a valley to a small green cut in a hill. Also, the highly acclaimed 14th hole, immortalized by the word of Henry Cotton "There is no finer hole than that of the 14th at Meyrick Park"

#6 Longest Drive

This hole presents a genuine scoring opportunity, 5 is must and 4 a possibility. Two straight shots should either find you on the green or leaving a pitch in. The green slopes deceptively from front to back so be warned!

#10 Nearest the Pin

According to the card this is the easiest on the course. Although it looks short, trust the yardage because if you under club, you could easily find yourself spinning 10yds off the front of the green. Incredulously, in a previous year we have suffered a complete blank in a single player being able to stick it on the green!
