Dudley Golf Club is a good a test of golf to all skill levels on any day of the year. It is not long by modern standards, but the course layout and its elevations poses challenges on every single hole. Made up of five par 3s, eleven par 4s and two par 5s, golfers will pick their way around some of the most scenic and thought provoking holes around.
Please take a moment to see our gallery in the hole-by-hole review below.
WT: 483 yards YT: 473 yards Par 5 SI: 11
A straight tee shot is required to a long left sweeping fairway followed by a club of choice for the second shot and then careful consideration is required for the shot to a sloping green.
WT: 257 yards YT: 257 yards Par 4 SI: 17
A steady tee shot followed by an accurate Wpitch to a narrow raised green.
WT: 443 yards YT: 433 yards Par 4 SI: 1
A difficult blind straight tee shot and the further the drive the narrower the fairway becomes with an horizontal dry ditch across the fairway to take into account followed by another long shot into a narrow mouthed green with bunkers either side.
WT: 143 yards YT: 131 yards Par 3 SI: 9
Our own postage stamp hole with a bunker across the front to contend with.
WT: 425 yards YT: 415 yards Par 4 SI: 3
A steady shot onto the top of a plateau fairway with a downhill shot onto the green. The first hole of our Amen Corner.
WT: 182 yards YT: 174 yards Par 4 SI: 13
A long difficult hole to a right to left sloping green. Say a prayer if a downhill putt is required especially in the summer.
WT: 199 yards YT: 180 yards Par 3 SI: 5
The third hole of Amen Corner and probably the most difficult of the three with very little room for manoeuvre. A par here is a great score
WT: 298 yards YT: 291 yards Par 4 SI: 15
A straight forward uphill hole to the very top of the course with outstanding views across several counties to the west and the next nearest highest point being the Ural mountains in Russia!
WT: 388 yards YT: 382 yards Par 4 SI: 4
Keep your tee shot slightly left to a tight fairway sloping left to right. Also keep your second shot left as everything falls right onto the green.
WT: 322 yards YT: 310 yards SI: 10
A straight forward hole onto a slightly raised green, be careful when the wind blows.
WT: 173 yards YT: 163 yards SI: 14
Again a straightaway shot with bunkers either side to be aware of.
WT: 269 yards YT: 264 yards SI: 18
A good drive to a generous fairway and a short pitch shot to a sloping green. If the wind is behind it may be possible to hit the green with a good tee shot.
WT: 523 yards YT: 452 yards SI: 8
A similar hole to the first with a late dogleg left after one or two downhill shots to a generous green.
WT: 174 yards YT: 168 yards SI: 16
A slightly downhill green requires an accurate tee shot for par.
WT: 304 yards YT: 298 yards SI: 7
A short par four but uphill ground makes it longer than you think. Correct club selection is vital to hit the green.
WT: 436 yards YT: 430 yards SI: 2
Very much as the third hole this long par four is very tough for higher handicappers with the ditch coming into play just before the green.
WT: 416 yards YT: 406 yards SI: 6
Running parallel to the sixteenth but not quite so difficult but a par requires four good shots.
WT: 318 yards YT: 308 yards SI: 12
A slight dogleg left to a green guarded by left and right front of green bunkers brings you home.
