While the undulating layout of our course provides an interesting test of the golfers long game, there are a number of testing holes that examine all parts of ones game.</p><p>The par four 12th, for example, is the toughest hole on the card for good reason. At 440 yards even off the yellow tees it requires a long accurate drive round the right-hand dog-leg before dealing with a sloping green that can easily get away from you.Water comes into play on several holes, with a number of friendly-placed ditches and brooks, while the more than adequate bunkering makes the course a chal-lenge for golfers of all abilities.Our signature hole is the picturesque 14th, with a tough drive through two copses, making par a welcome result.The club has its own reservoir and a comprehensive irrigation system to maintain the condition of the course through hot and dry weather. With our well-furbished clubhouse and our excellent caterers, Burnham Beeches provides an ideal golf day for golfers of all abilities.</p><p>About the course</p><p>7</p></li><li><p>If you have never played at Burnham Beeches Golf Club before you are in for a treat.

Any putt back down the green must be viewed with caution. </p><p>Hole 2, 424 yards, par 4A difficult par four, this hole begins with a tough tee shot, with out of bounds on the right and a bunker on the left. If this is negotiated, then a long second shot is required, with the green tucked close to the O.O.B on the right and no bail out left.</p><p>Hole 3, 177 yards, par 3Although stroke index 18, this is by no means an easy par three. The lie of the land partially obscures the green and the distance is foreshortened with its down-hill perspective. However, a solid tee shot will leave a birdie opportunity.</p><p>Hole 4, 521 yards, par 5On this hole longer hitters have a real chance of reaching the green in two and making birdie. Two bunkers at the front protect the green, so its essential to use enough club for your approach.</p><p>Tour the course</p><p>9</p><p>Ashbrook TreesAshbrook TreesYour local tree specialist</p><p>Contact Jeremy Taylor Tel: 0796 187 8576Email: ashbrooktreespecilist@lycos.com</p></li><li><p>Hole 5, 430 yards, par 4One of the toughest holes at Burnham, a long tee shot is required to reach the level part of the fairway.

A slight draw round the corner avoiding the fair-way and the hard work is done. The green has two bunkers at the front but again the pin is usually accessible with a short iron.</p><p>Hole 9, 376 yards, par 4The tee shot is crucial once again on this hole as a large pit to the right of the fairway gathers any errant shot. The green is probably the longest on the course so, if the pin is at the back take an extra club</p><p>Tour the course - continued</p><p>11</p><p>Our team of highly skilled consultants/technicians/engineers deal with all aspects of IT from solving computer faults to installing </p><p>complex wireless networks in schools and businesses.</p><p>Were not happy until youre happy!</p><p>T: 01628 559746 W: www.cybersupport.co.ukE: info@cybersupport.co.uk</p><p>Bright ideas in IT </p><p>support</p><p>Computer training </p><p>centre</p><p>Computer networking</p><p>IT support for businesses and schools</p><p>IT advice</p><p>No fix, no fee</p><p>Friendly staff</p></li><li><p>Hole 10, 175 yards, par 3Try not to get distracted by the big sleeper faced bunker, as a solid shot will find the green and a par will result.</p><p>Hole 11, 557 yards, par 5Only the longer hitters can reach this in two. A drive into a valley leaves a lay up shot between two fairway bunkers. The approach to the green looks shorter than it is so trust the yardage and take enough club.</p><p>Hole 12, 446 yards, par 4The hardest hole on the course, this long sweeping dogleg to the right gives you the best view of the green for your approach but will play long.
