Staverton Park is renowned locally for two things: the super greens which are playable throughout the calendar year, and the warm welcome reserved for all those fortunate enough to visit, making it a joy for all who choose it for a golf break.
Since opening in 1977, the parkland layout has matured greatly, and the course has grown and bedded in, with numerous hazards, including lakes and severe bunkers, posing a considerable challenge to all standards of golfers. Course condition is great all year round, with firm, fast greens and hilly fairways offering great views of the East Midlands countryside.
The front nine is undulating with some severe elevation changes, making for some tricky second shots. The back nine is flatter but features a great mix of holes, from the gorgeous par 3 12th to the thrilling finale on 18.
Staverton Park's resident PGA professionals are fully qualified to offer excellent tuition for both beginners and established players.
Signature Hole: 11th – Par 5, 554 yards
The signature 11th is the perfect risk/reward par 5 which invites the longer hitters to have a crack at reaching the green in two. Keep your tee shot as far right as you can without over-cooking it into the trees. This will set up an easier second shot; however a stream short of the green, plus a large bunker front-left, will test both your nerve and your ability to keep a fairway wood or long-iron on target. If you are not confident of carrying the stream, lay up short to set up a birdie chance.
