Wrag Barn Feature Holes

Occupying a 130-acre parkland site, the course extends to 6,622 yards from the tips, playing to a par of 72, with tree-lined holes arranged as two returning nines across a pleasantly undulating landscape that occasionally brings water into play.

Wrag Barn Par 3 5th Hole

Feature holes include the signature 198-yard par three 5th, with the green positioned behind a pond in the southernmost part of the property, and the shortest of five par fours on the outward half at the uphill 352-yard 8th, rated stroke index 1.

Wrag Barn Hole 15

On the back nine, the slightly left doglegging 464-yard 15th is a beast of a long par four, followed a couple of holes later by the 482-yard 17th, where a ditch circles the front of a raised green that’s delightfully buttressed with wooden sleepers.
