First opened to the public in 1932, Whitefield Golf Club offers a course that poses plenty of problems for players of all standards, whether high or low handicapper. It will challenge anyone and having them frowning in bewilderment at times, but never enough to scare them away. If anything, after a round here, you will be dying to tee off again to see if you beat the hazards second time around!
The greens are well protected by well positioned bunkers, which makes some of your approach work a little less straightforward than usual, whilst the fairways are undulating meaning that accuracy from the tees is at a premium. Afterwards, why not relax with a nice cool drink back in the splendid clubhouse?
The most striking feature about Whitefields is Draycote Water. The lake laps the 13th hole and provides a beautiful backdrop all year round. The signature hole is surely ‘Curlie’s Corner’. This hole has no room for error. 184 yards from the medal tee, the green is surrounded by water and can ruin a good card!
The par 4, 15th is also a nerve tester. It is 257 yards par 4 and aptly named ‘Temptation’ since it has water on both sides of the hole, and so requires nerve and a good drive to reach the green from the tee.
