Hole 11 - 307 Yards - Par 4
The tee on hole 11 is an elevated one and built on the ridge to the right of the Clubhouse. There are beautiful views across the valley to Baildon. The hole runs in a south westerly direction. The tee shot is down a slope which then flattens out. Two bunkers, one on the right and one further on down the left, threaten the tee shot. The latter bunker was reduced in size relatively recently and relocated five yards to the right. In addition there are trees quite close in on the right, plus Willow Lane. On the left is a patch of heavy rough, plus a few trees. In favourable conditions a well hit drive may reach the green. If not, the second is a short pitch across mainly level ground to a flat green. There are bunkers to front left and front right of the green, another further on at the right, and a drop at the back. This hole is a real birdie opportunity. It was originally the opening hole in the 1922 layout and conforms to an easy introduction to the course.
