A relatively short opening hole. An accurate drive is required to avoid two partially hidden bunkers on the left of the fairway and an alcove of trees to the right. The green slopes steeply and relentlessly to the back with a steep bank beyond.
A long par 3 across a valley and row of ponds to a large, two tiered green. It is important not to allow your drive to slip down the steep slope on the right.
A classic par 4 right handed dog leg leading to a very tricky two tiered green. A long drive is required to provide the opportunity to reach the green with an iron. The hole is protected by a deep bunker at the front.
A straight par 4, running parallel to the railway line. The more aggressive drive is to the right hand side of the two bunkers in the middle of the fairway, which makes for an easier approach shot. The green is well protected by a bunker at the front and by a row of bunkers around the right hand side.
A flat straight hole, but with one of the most testing greens on the course, especially in summer. The pin placement can make up to two clubs difference to the approach shot.
The elevated tee provides one of the best views over the course. A long drive is required to provide an opportunity to reach the green with your second shot. The approach to the green is played over a stream which winds across the hole. There is a small bunker at the front right, while the one at the back left waits to catch any over hit shot.
A short hole with most of the danger at the front. The bunkers on the left and right create a narrow entrance which dictates a straight tee shot. The bowl shaped green with a gentle slope from back to front can be one of the fastest on the course.
A long par 4 and a very challenging hole. The drive is a demanding shot over heather to cross a stream which meanders diagonally from left to right. A drive taking the safer route to the left of the fairway will have a very long second, slightly uphill, over a cluster of bunkers protecting the green. A drive on the right hand side will find that the stream runs increasingly into play The large slightly convex sloping green has many deceptive borrows.
The long uphill dogleg is the only bunker-free hole on the course. From the back tees a well hit drive is needed to go past the pine tree at the turn of the dogleg. A long uphill second shot is required in order to reach the green, which at any time of the year can be very difficult, but especially in summer. The fast green slopes steeply and diagonally from back left to front right.
A par three requiring a straight drive. The land falls away steeply to the left of the green and to the right there are a row of bunkers protecting that side of the green. The green appears relatively flat but has a deceptive slope from right to left which increases in severity towards the back.
This hole has a long carry over heather, but a long drive will benefit from the downhill slope. The two bunkers at the front of the green will catch any ball not struck right into the heart of the green.
A wide inviting fairway. The best line is probably just left of centre to avoid being blocked out by the pine trees protecting the right half of the green. A multi-tiered green sits in a natural bowl with its slopes and spurs leading down to the front right. There is a row of bunkers in front of the green to catch any short approach shot.
Another long par four. The tee shot has to be accurately placed over the right hand corner of the fairway bunker as hidden heather borders the fairway beyond. The long second to the green must be threaded between a bunker to the right and a rough mound on the left. This green is one of the most challenging.
A sweeping par 5, with a tee shot that has to be struck over a large swathe of heather along the right hand side of the fairway. Any drive that slips off to the left can end up blocked by overhanging branches of the trees on the left. The large sloping green is immediately in front of the clubhouse and its veranda.
This second par 5 hole runs away from the clubhouse to an open fairway lined with more heather. The green is elevated at the back while the front half is divided by a long ridge so that any approach shot not placed accurately leaves a testing putt to negotiate the vagaries of the slopes.
This pretty par 3 boasts being the first major change to the course design in over 50 years. A well executed tee shot will find a green that is in keeping with the challenges of Woking
One of the few downhill holes on the course but nevertheless it plays to its full length. The preferred drive is to the left centre of the fairway to reduce the impact of the two bunkers protecting the front right of the green. The apron to the green tends to hold the ball whilst the fast, sloping green encourages balls to run through the green.
An accurately positioned drive is much more important than a long drive into the wrong area of the fairway. The green is protected by bunkers at the front with only a tight gap through which to play a running approach shot. The putting surface slopes in a series of steps down towards the pond, which is immediately adjacent to the edge of the green.
