Holes 16 - 18
Hole 16 - Peter's Pride
524 yards Par 5
A good par 5 that does offer up a realistic chance of a birdie. Drive over the marker post to a wide fairway. Finding the rough either side of the fairway however will mean no chance of reaching the green in two ! A large green can leave you with a long putt if you mis-club your approach shot.
Hole 17 - Crab Apple Tree
192 yards Par 3
The last par three with the magnificent view of the newly refurbished Stoke Rochford Hall, completed following the devastating fire in 2005.
Again, depending on the wind direction, this can be anything from a 6 iron to a wood, favouring the right side to avoid the new bunker.
The ground slopes in from the right of the green often giving a slightly mis-directed shot a kick left onto the green. Like the third hole, tight rough on the right of the green can leave a difficult "up and down". As with so many others at Stoke, a large green that can leave you with a long putt if your tee shot does not find the pin.
Hole 18 - Hall View
404 yards Par 4
A blind drive over the marker post for the final hole. You need to find the fairway as the rough both sides of the fairway can be very tough to negotiate for your second shot. Again a blind second shot to a largish green - aim for the marker post in the trees behind the back of the green.
