The Brenda King Foursomes 2021, will be held at Wollaton Park Golf Club, Nottingham.

Wollaton Park represents an enjoyable and challenging test for golfers of every level.  Measuring 5,669 yards off the red tees, the course does not put a premium on length.  Accuracy should always be a preferred strategy with ball placement key if you are going to shoot low.

The putting surfaces have a reputation for being some of the best in the area. Smooth with subtle contours, they are a joy to putt on.  The course has a reputation for play on full greens year-round.  A sandy sub-soil together with good drainage helps ensure the course is at its best whatever the weather.

WP Hole 1

A challenging opening par 4 with out of bounds down the right and well-placed bunkers demanding an accurate tee shot.

A par here is always an acceptable start to the round.

WP Hole 2

A short par 3 with a large green protected by bunkers front, left and right. An early birdie opportunity.

WP hole 3

A tricky par 4 usually played downwind. Out of bounds left, but a good drive will leave a mid to short iron to a long narrow green protected by a swale to the left and bunkers right.

WP Hole 4

Two accurate shots down a fairway with a corridor of surrounding trees will set up a short iron to a generously sized green protected by bunkers front left and right.

WP Hole 5

Another par 4, the last of an exacting opening stretch. Bunkers right and a copse on the left require an accurate drive.

WP Hole 6

The shortest par 4 to date, but beware. The tee shot should ideally be placed in the right half of the fairway to set up a pitch to a green sloping from back to front.

WP Hole 7

Another short but testing par 4, dogleg left. An iron is perhaps the best strategy off the tee as the narrow fairway is guarded by trees left and right. The narrow green is protected by a bunker left that runs its entire length.

WP Hole 8

A short but deceptive uphill par 3 which can play longer than its yardage due to the existence of wind, usually against, that is not always evident from the tee below

WP Hole 9

The first of two consecutive par 5’s. Reachable in 2 for the longer hitters, but 4 well placed bunkers surrounding the green will gather up anything wayward.

WP Hole 10

Opening the back nine, this par 5 offers a real birdie chance; 2 well-struck shots will leave a short pitch to a flat green.

WP Hole 11

This par 3 requires a long or mid iron to a green that slopes markedly from right to left.

WP Hole 12

A inviting tee shot down to a valley on this par 4 of 376 yards, but beware the out of bounds right. The fairway found, a short iron to a generous green will set up a possible birdie.

WP Hole 13

A par 3 with a long green set at an angle to the tee. A poorly struck tee shot might well find the bunkers that protect the front and right of the green.

WP Hole 14

A lovely long uphill par 4 set on the most scenic part of the course, overlooked by the impressive Wollaton Hall. Two well struck shots are required to find the green here.

WP Hole 15

Played in the opposite direction to the 14th, this dogleg par 5 offers opportunities galore. It is reachable in two, but the tee shot needs to be long and down the left of the fairway. Most players will require two accurate shots to set up an iron to a green protected at the front by a strategic bunker.

WP Hole 16

Accuracy from the tee on this short par 4 provides a definite birdie chance. Long hitters might even fancy their chances of reaching.

WP Hole 17

The final par 3 is played uphill to a well bunkered green and requires an accurate long iron. The green slopes from back to front and has very subtle borrows.

WP Hole 18

The tee shot on the last, a testing par 4 of 420 yards, is played down to a generous sized fairway and sets up a second shot to a well-guarded green.
