What's Your Favourite Golf Hole From Any Of The Golf Courses In Wiltshire?
Hole 12 at Manor House
Hole 12 Par 5 DOOLITTLE
BLACK 498 YARDS | WHITE 477 YARDS | YELLOW 446 YARDS | RED 430 YARDS
One of the most visually stunning Par 5’s you are likely to see.
The hole doglegs across a valley, with heavy rough, the River Bybrook, the lake and bunkers to negotiate before you reach the green.
Take a fairway wood of long iron off the tee to ensure playing your second from the short grass. The green can be reached in two but it requires a long shot.
The green undulates and hardly has a straight putt. The best of luck!
