What's Your Favourite Golf Hole From Any Of The Golf Courses In Wiltshire?

The Manor House 12th hole

Hole 12 Par 5 DOOLITTLE

The 12th Hole at Manor House


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!
