Sturminster Marshall Golf Club - Course Planner

Hole 1

Par 3 Mens Yards: 115
S.I. 18 Ladies Yards: 110

The 1st hole is a short par 3 but make sure you use the correct club. There is a new front bunker you must carry at about 80 yards. The green is long and it can be up to 3 clubs difference in selection. Officially the easiest hole on the course so pick the correct club and you will make an easy par!

Hole 2

Par 4 Mens Yards: 267
S.I. 8 Ladies Yards: 227

The 2nd hole from the back tee is an awkward tee shot as people aim too far left because of the direction of the tee and shape of the fairway. You can play this hole two ways. 1/ Go at the green with a big club but make sure you are straight to avoid the green side bunkers. Do this and a birdie is nearly assured. 2/ Play safe and use a mid iron down the right side of the fairway to open up the green. You might not make that birdie but a par is on the cards. Dont forget to wait until the 8th green is clear before teeing off.

Hole 3

Par 4 Mens Yards: 220
S.I. 12 Ladies Yards: 204

The 3rd hole is a short par 4 but placement of your tee shot is crucial. Like the 2nd there is a risk and reward type feel to this hole. At around 220 yards you need to drive the green with a long club but make sure you have height to the shot. A low trajectory can see your ball go through the green. The green is heavily guarded by bunkers so a mid iron up the middle and then a small pitch will set you up for a par and maybe the much deserved birdie. Be careful not to run out of fairway to the right as the copse has been a many a reason people have taken 6 or 7.

Hole 4

Par 4 Mens Yards: 298
S.I. 2 Ladies Yards: 284

The 4th is officially the hardest hole on the course with its stroke index of 1. It is a tough driving hole from the back tee as it is out of bounds all the way down the left hand side. This is our newest green built in 2006 and a double tier was added. So slightly right off the tee is safest but beware the copse. With the green built up makesure you do not go over the green as there is a drop behind.

Hole 5

Par 3 Mens Yards: 111
S.I. 16 Ladies Yards: 109

The 5th is only around 110 yards but you do have to play over the lake. With a bunker guarding the front of the green make sure you use enough club to carry the green on the full. Just a quick note of interest. The balls you hit in the lake are used in the kids academy!!

Hole 6

Par 3 Mens Yards: 102
S.I. 14 Ladies Yards: 101

The 6th hole is hit the green or you could be in trouble. Out of Bounds left, thick rough to the right, water in front and a bunker at the back. Pick the right club make a good swing and good luck. Often the wind can make a big difference to your club selection.

Hole 7

Par 4 Mens Yards: 306
S.I. 4 Ladies Yards: 288

The 7th hole is probably one of the most difficult tee shots. Go left and you will be reloading as it is out of bounds all the way down the left side. The right side of the fairway hosts our only fairway bunker so accuracy off the tee is essential for a good score.

Hole 8

Par 4 Mens Yards: 311
S.I. 6 Ladies Yards: 284

The 8th hole offers a new challenge as the hole doglegs to the left so a right to left shot is best. Hit the ball too far and straight from the tee and you will run out of fairway. If you are able to hit a long high ball then you may cut the corner. The more you can cut off the easier the second shot. with the green surrounded by bunkers the smaller the club you can use for your second the better. The green has a fair amount of slope so be careful when aiming your putts.

Hole 9

Par 3 Mens Yards: 174
S.I. 10 Ladies Yards: 167

The 9th hole is a great par 3 and most people are happy to walk off with a 4. The front of the green is entirely covered by a bunker and the right side you will find our deepest pot bunker on the course. It is difficult to hold a ball on the green so if you do not thread your tee shot between the two bunkers then laying up with a short iron then pitching onto the green will give you a shot of a par.
