Littlestone Golf Course Review
Par 71, 6,676 yards, links
Littlestone is a delightful links course, complete with dunes, bracken and gorse.
The third hole is a lovely par four, measuring just 398 yards. It features a blind tee shot over sand dunes; there is a marker post and the ideal line is slightly to the left of it, which will see your drive finish close to the bunkers at the angle of the dogleg and open up your approach to the green.
There are no fairway bunkers on the 541-yard par five seventh but the green is well protected. A straight drive is a must and you then have to decide whether or not to try to clear the ditch with your second - if you can clear it you are left with a straightforward pitch to a narrow green, which is guarded by pot bunkers.
The 12th features another blind drive, but this time to a wide fairway. It measures 430 yards and is usually played into the wind, which means a long approach shot. Ideally, you want to play your second from the left of the fairway. And take note, the green is the hardest on the course to read.
The 17th is a memorable par three. It is 182 yards - if the wind is behind, you will be going in with something like an eight or nine iron, but if it is into your face you could be reaching for the driver. There are two bunkers short of the putting surface, and two more by the side of the green.
he final hole is a 499-yard par five that is reachable in two for big hitters, but only if you find the fairway. If you can't make the surface in two you should keep your second shot to the left of the fairway to avoid a precipitous bunker on the right of the green. Beware!
