With Masters-fever coming to Yorkshire, Rudding Park unveils a fantastic new routing on the 18 Hole Hawtree Course inspired by the famous Augusta National course.
As at Augusta, this Yorkshire version of ‘Amen Corner’ on the 12th, 13th and 14th holes of the Hawtree Course sees fairways and greens cut through mature woodland. Rhododendrons replace the azaleas and dogwood and with our own version of Rae’s creek coming into play on two holes – this is the closest golfers will come to the real thing.
Recently ranked 8th Best Golf Resort in Europe by LeadingCourses.com, Rudding Park has two courses designed by renowned Open Championship golf course architect Martin Hawtree; the 18 Hole Hawtree Course and 6 Hole Repton Short Course. Rudding Park Golf Academy offers golfers the most extensive coaching venue in the north of England.
The signature 14th (163 yards), named Rhododendron Glade due to a profusion of colour in late spring, is well guarded by three bunkers at the front and another hidden from view to the right. Playing uphill and into the prevailing wind presents a challenge for golfers of all abilities, with the undulating green making a par no easy score.
