Spean Bridge: Hole-by-hole

Click on a hole below for photos and description.

1st and 10th

White Yellow Red Par
119 yds
117 yds
116 yds
3

A short, but testing opening hole that plays a lot trickier than it looks! Go left and you’ll be in the trees. Go right and you’ll run down the hill into the greenside bunker. And go long… you’ll be in the deep stuff! Make a par here and your round is off to a great start!

2nd and 11th

White Yellow Red Par
256 yds
256 yds
222 yds
4

Avoid the trees on the left and right, and aim for the bottom of the hill. Longer hitters might be able to reach the plateau, for a good look at the green and a possible birdie chance. But don’t go long with your approach!

3rd and 12th

White Yellow Red Par
270 yds
266 yds
192 yds
4

Aim for the sight marker at the top of the plateau. There’s trouble left, but as long as you clear the burn and make it up the hill, there’s plenty of room on the right (although go too right and the rough can be punishing). A narrow approach to a raised green awaits. The second hardest hole on the course — a par here is a good score!

4th and 13th

White Yellow Red Par
254 yds
250 yds
248 yds
4

A very short par 4, but don’t let that fool you! Only the longest (and straightest) hitters will be brave enough to try and carry the burn and go for the green in one. For most, it’s an easy iron or fairway wood up to the marker post, then a short iron over the burn into the green. The green slopes away, so if anything you want to be a little short with your approach and let your ball trickle down to the hole.

5th and 14th

White Yellow Red Par
272 yds
272 yds
270 yds
4

Longer hitters may be able to reach the plateau, but most golfers will layup to the bottom of the hill. The line is the sight marker, but you may want to aim slightly left as the green slopes away to the right… and straight into a waiting bunker!

6th and 15th

White Yellow Red Par
323 yds
305 yds
227 yds
4
Carry the rough and then go for the green, but err on the short side or risk a lost ball through the green.

7th and 16th

White Yellow Red Par
287 yds
284 yds
219 yds
4
Send your drive from an elevated tee over rough to the fairway. Beware the pond on the left!

8th and 17th

White Yellow Red Par
312 yds
286 yds
213 yds
4

An accurate drive is needed here, with trees on both sides of the fairway.

9th and 18th

White Yellow Red Par
178 yds
178 yds
176 yds
3
A straight tee-shot makes a par possible, but veer left and the slope could take your ball down the hill to the Clubhouse!
