It plays to a par of 29 but the only two holes that are not par threes on the card are just 200 and 185 yards respectively!
In essence it is a 9 hole par three course and is sandwiched in a triangular gap between the 14th and 18th holes of the main course. This means it plays over similar terrain and whilst it is not maintained to the same standard the turf is undoubtedly links.
The greens are mostly circular affairs but there is enough subtlety and interest to keep you on your toes.
The third is a particularly strong hole whilst the drop-short fourth makes selecting the correct club tricky. The shortest hole is the fifth at just 85 yards but thanks to a small target and well-placed bunkers it is no pushover.
The 7th and 8th are par-fours on the card but can each be reached with a solid blow. The former is easily the best hole with a perfectly sited green which offers an easier recovery if missed on the right.
If you are staying on site then a quick blast around the par-three course at Trevose is well worth your time. During my week stay my 13-year old son played it every day!
