100 ROYAL WORLINGTON & NEWMARKET

Architect: Dunn 2006 position: New entry Stats: 6,246 yds; par 70; SSS 70 GF: £20-£60 T: 01638 715224 W: royalworlington.co.uk (opens in new tab)

For anyone with an interest in the tradition and history of the game, Worlington is a must visit.

From the feel of the clubhouse to the fascinating nine-hole layout, this is a club that has maintained its heritage perfectly.

That nine holes have been designed in such a small area is impressive in itself, but the fact that they’re so varied and enjoyable makes them a real pleasure to play.

The subtle difficulties are epitomised by the par-3 5th.

At first glance it appears a straightforward short hole, but the long, narrow green is cleverly built up with run-offs that have destroyed many a good score. POH

+ Great layout; lovely traditional club; superb winter track - Visitor tee times are limited; only nine holes
