A good drive towards the marker post will take you onto the top of Hob Hill, which gives a clear view of the green below. Your second needs to be a controlled approach as the green falls away sharply to the left and back. If you drop short then the ball may not reach, however if you overshoot the green you may have a testing chip back to get close to the flag.

As you walk towards your drive take a moment to enjoy the stunning views which are not an everyday sight on most golf courses. On a clear day, look to the right and the North East coast can be seen all the way as far north as South Shields, with the industrial landscape on the mouth of the river Tees in the near distance. Look ahead, over Hob Hill, and you have a wonderful vista of the edge of the North York Moors and Roseberry Topping beyond.
