Woodlands Manor lies in the triangle formed by the M20, M25, and M26. Yet once you leave one of these motorways and you begin the short journey to Woodlands, you enter a different world. Or, to be more specific, you enter an official Area of Natural Beauty. Woodlands lies half way up a stunning valley on the North Downs.
The best par-5 at Woodlands might be the 2nd at 489 yards. With firm conditions and a tailing wind, you may be tempted to get the driver out and find the narrow fairway. If the gamble pays off, you may again be tempted to try to retch the green. But it's a risky shot with a pond and bunkers to navigate. It's a hole that could be the start of a great round.
After the challenges of the starting holes at Woodlands, the course offers plenty of scoring opportunities where better and even "average" golfers can hunt for a birdie or two.
Successfully drive the par-4 4th, just 282 yards, and you could card an eagle or birdie. The 11th, is a shorter par-4 at 322 yards; however, you'll need a solid drive then a cunning pitch to set up a birdie putt. A series of fascinating par-4s follow punctuated by the magnificent 18th hole.
Originally laid out in 1924 and opened by Henry Cotton, Woodlands Manor is a golf course with character and challenge. It's also a tremendously fair golf course.
