The new 8th hole at Chiltern Forest plays much easier than the old 8th hole as you no longer have to navigate your way up the steep  hill. That being said, this hole is not a walk in the park. The green is quite shallow so club selection is key, as is judging the sometime strong crosswinds that can blow even the best struck shot off course.

Hole 13 – Statistics

335 Yds, S.I. 5

Your tee shot must be kept to left side of the fairway for the best view into this tucked away green as anything to the right will be blocked by the over hanging trees. The green has two tiers and it is important you find the tier that the flag is on or you will face a difficult putt across the green. 


Hole 14 Chiltern Forest Golf ClubThis Par 4 hole requires a straight but not necessarily a long drive down the middle to avoid woodland on either side. Your second shot will then need to go straight to a raised green that slopes front to back.

Hole 15 Chiltern Forest Golf ClubThis hole is a short Par 3 uphill hole to a raised green that demands a solid strike to ensure you reach the putting surface. Short of the green will leave a tricky chip up the bank to the green that slopes front to back.

Eagles or Better: 2
Birdies: 302

Hole 18 Chiltern Forest Golf ClubFinally back to the top of the course to finish with this cracking Par 4. There is plenty to think about here. Too far right off the tee risks being out of bounds or a shot to the green from the bank above the fairway. Too far left and you’ll back down on the 17th. The fairway has two longitudinal levels, the lower level often feeding down into to bunker. The approach shot to the green is all uphill often from hanging lies to the green above you.
