Any golf course that opens with a Par 3 provides a tough start for golfers – and Baxenden is no different. Measuring 199 Yards at its longest point, the first hole has out of bounds left and requires a well struck shot to make the green in regulation.
Without any doubt, the third hole is the signature hole. A classic hit or miss par 3, the third is rarely more than a short iron for most but if the green then it is either in deep rough, or it has found a bunker.
What goes up must come down and after playing the fifth, the sixth runs parallel in the opposite direction. Despite the approach shot usually only being around 80 Yards, the green is very well protected.
