27 holes of golf
Gaudet’s full size Phoenix course currently plays host to the Trilby Tour of Worcestershire ever since 2017, for 2020 now known as the Brit-Am Championship.
The Pheonix is set out in two very contrasting halves, the opening nine presents a gently undulating parkland challenge with mature and newly planted trees making it a little tight in places. The opening quartet of holes, shortish and set on open ground offer the opportunity to get off to a good start, then across the road to the fifth, things do tighten up a little as the trees and changes of elevation become a concern.
The par five eighth sees Gaudet at its attractive peak, a stunning sight in full summer bloom, and a lovely driving hole from a raised tee all the way to a distant narrow green. Just don’t overdo the tee shot, the ditch may be a little closer than it seems!
