About the course
Not surprisingly, the course that's named after him offers more than a few serious challenges for club golfers. The 10th hole, for instance, is a 445-yard par-4 that plays downhill initially and then sweeps uphill to a green protected by two bunkers in front of the putting surface. You have to keep your tee shot to the left of the fairway to have the best angle into a green which slopes wickedly from back right to front left. It is undoubtedly the most difficult hole on the inward nine and one where a par feels like a birdie. "It's a fantastically challenging hole", says Richard Summerscales, Head Professional at Foxhills. "It's demanding off the tee and then the green is hard to hit being very narrow."
Another real test can be found on the finishing hole, a dogleg of 446-yards. Somewhat unfairly, the members call it Cardiac Hill - but it's a truly great finishing hole, widely considered one of the most difficult in the country as the tee shot must carry more than 200 yards to reach the narrow fairway.
Unless you hit a monster tee shot, your approach shot will be partially blind up the hill from where, in the distance, you can see the spacious double green that's shared with the finishing hole of the Longcross Course.
