Pro's Tip

A relatively straightforward opener. Drive down the lefthand side of the fairway otherwise the camber will push you into the rough or the bunkers on the right. The green slopes away from you, so the second shot is hard to hold. Beware the stream at the rear.

A deceptive hole, the fairway narrows the further you hit it. The two-tier green is well protected by two bunkers.  Beware going over the green if the pin is on the back tier.

Pro's Tip

With out-of-bounds all the way down the left and a pond on the right, the drive is very important on this tough par four. The severely undulating green can be as much as three clubs different in length and keeping the ball below the hole is always a good idea

The first, and perhaps the most difficult par 3. It’s all about being below the hole, not easy when the pin is tucked in behind the bunker!

Again, out of bounds on the left, with two bunkers at driving distance on the right. Get up alongside the second bunker and you have a decision to make - try and clear the pond to the front of the saddle green, or lay up. When playing to the green distanc control is vital to set up a one putt chance.

The longest par three at 204 yards, requires a long and straight tee shot, over the pond, to what is perhaps the flattest green on the course.

Pro's Tip

The first of Eaton’s short, yet tricky, par fours. An oak tree and bunker on the left and a pond on the right will punish those who take it on. A long iron off the tee leaves a wedge to a two tier green, protected to the left and rear by out-of-bounds. Long hitters may attempt to drive the green and a great shot may be rewarded with a putt for eagle, but beware, get it wrong and you'll run up a big score.

Pro's Tip

Very much in range in two for the longer hitters. This slightly dog legged par five requires a drawing tee shot to get round the oak tree and between the bunkers. Anything off line can be blocked out by two further Oak trees. The green is off-set and requires a faded shot to make the target.

Pro's Tip

The longest par four on the course is generally played down wind and has a generous fairway. Try not to be blocked out by the Oak tree on the right. A good drive still leaves a long shot to a generous green, although the longest hitters may elect not to hit driver since the fairway at 300 yards is only a few yards wide.

The drive needs to be straight down the middle, as two Oak trees at 260 yards will block any offline shot to the green. Another off-set and steeply sloping green, which is hard to hold.

A straightforward tee shot to a deceptive green, which slopes steeply from right to left. The mounds to the right hand side of the green can make chipping difficult to judge.

Pro's Tip

Eaton's signature hole! Course designer Donald Steel asked himself 'where would be the best place to play the second shot from, to this well protected green?'. Then placed a bunker there! Anything left is blocked out. A stream runs right across the front of the steeply sloping back to front green which means the longest hitters will not hit a Driver. Get above the pin in summer and three putting is a likely return!

Pro's Tip

The last of the short par fours. Do you play a long iron to land between the bunkers and stream, or try and blast it over the bunkers? Either way, it leaves a relatively short up hill shot to a green which can be hard to hold and where you invariably can’t see the bottom of the pin.

Hole Plan
Pro's Tip

The longest hole on the course, played back into the prevailing wind. The sensible shot is to lay up short of the stream, before taking on the second shot. The brave, long hitter, will take on the left hand corner of the dog leg off the tee and should be rewarded with a second shot in range. However, beware the OOB on the LHS. The green at over 40 yards long has three gently sloping tiers.

A tough driving hole between an Oak tree and copse. The second shot, generally played from a slight downhill lie over a stream to a wicked green, isn't any easier, although the skilled long hitter will feel this is a definite birdie chance.

Pro's Tip

The last par five and arguably the toughest. The rough on the left will swallow any ball. The fairway narrows between a pond and an Oak tree for the second shot. The green itself slopes severely from right to left and is protected by two bunkers and a stream meaning a fade into the green is a good shot choice for a right hander.

Pro's Tip

The toughest hole on the course means you can’t relax. Use your yardage book to determine if the guidepost is your correct driving line. A pond on the inside of this left to right dog-leg catches many tee shots. Having negotiated the pond, there is still a long second to a very long, narrow green. Guarded by two Oak trees either side. A par is cherished here.

 

Donald Steel made good use of the natural Cheshire countryside in designing our parkland course. Two streams thread through the course and are carried from the tees or traversed onto greens as a feature and challenge on some of the holes. On others ponds have been established to be crossed or avoided through good straight shots.

As a consequence of the use of the natural features as hazards, Eaton is not a heavily bunkered course. The subtle contours and slopes of the excellent greens provide a final challenge to making a good score.

However, all levels of player can enjoy Eaton. With four courses, from the longest black tees to the shortest red, members and visitors can take on a challenge appropriate to their game.

Each hole contains up to three distance marker discs - white for 200yd, yellow for 150 yd and red for 100yd. There are also 150 yd marker posts off each side of the fairway. All the measurements are to the centre of the green. The marker discs are immovable obstructions and relief without penalty may be taken. The distance posts are removable.

May your drives be straight and your puts be true.
