About the course
Out on the course the opening four holes offer variety in terms of distance, undulation, and par, and give you a sense of the challenges that lie ahead. Following the tricky 8th, ringed by numerous bunkers, comes Hull's number 1 stroke hole named West Ella. With out of bounds on the right, players must keep their ball left down the sloping fairway, which sweeps downhill in a gentle dogleg around a large copse of trees, before facing a long uphill second to a two tiered green. A par 4 here is a rare feat.
Hull’s feature hole is the 10th. Anything from a 1 to a 15 has been recorded here over the years! A downhill driveable par 4 with a picturesque pond eating into the front and right of the green makes this the ultimate risk and reward hole. Mid irons off the tee usually only leave a wedge in, but those who take the driver can expect an eagle putt, a watery grave or, worse still, three off the tee with out of bounds hugging the right side of the fairway. You could, of course, admire the beautiful fountains donated by the Hull Golf Club Seniors Section!
The back 9 carries more twists and turns with classic dog legs on the 12th and 14th and changes of elevation as you make your way back to the 19th.
To complete the dream round, the final challenge is to par the tough 17th and 18th.
