Consett – Hole 1 Par 4 The Ramp
A nice opening hole to loosen up the muscles, a good drive to the left side of the side of the fairway will leave a short iron to a plateau green. Check the pin position as club selection is important when playing to this large green.
Yardage White 374 Yellow 351 Red 349
Consett – Hole 2 Par 4 The Cooler
Keep your drive down the left side as the fairway runs to the right. A nice drive will leave a mid iron to a green guarded by mounds left and a bunker right. Club selection is important as “Out of Bounds” lurks at the back for the misjudged shot. A par is always a good score here.

Consett – Hole 6 Par 3 The Look Out

Consett – Hole 7 Par 5 Pulpit
The signature hole of the course. Before teeing off spend a few seconds and enjoy the view! Beware the out of bounds on the left, keep your drive right, then a well placed second shot to the edge of the trees will leave a short pitch to the green. A well earned birdie could be the result.
Yardage White 488 Yellow 480 Red 446
Consett – Hole 8 Par 3 Hospital Hole

Yardage White 485 Yellow 467 Red 351
Consett – Hole 10 Par 5 The Old One
