Hole 7, Par 3 187yds.
The par 3 187 yard 7th is Hartford's signature hole. The hole has been quoted as 'this hole would not look out of place on any championship course'. likened to Augusta's 6th, the large drop from the tee to the green through woodland to a long green flanked by bunkers and water on both sides, is a pleasure to play. this is one of those tee shots you want to hit ball after ball, and will have you wanting to come back and play it again.
Hole 8, Par 4 340yds.
The 8th is a forgiving dog left left. Wild tee shots will however, find out of bounds both left and right. A good tee shot will leave you a short iron to the green. Either play short and right of the green to leave a long put or take on the bunkers on the left to close to the pin.
Hole 9, Par 4353yds.
The 9th can make or break your score. For the longer hitters there is a clump of gorse, a bunker and out of bounds to the right. To complicate matters there is a stream running down the left and the driving range down the right. Playing short off the tee removes some of the trouble, but leaves a longer shot to a large well protected green with bunkers and water to the left and right. A good hole ought to offer risk and reward, bring all the game you've got, and be prepared to gamble. Make par here and hopefully you would have had an enjoyable round at on of Cheshire's delights.
