Review for Fulford

Reviewer Score:


I have friends who think Fulford is “flat and boring” but that’s not a fair assessment of this course which is well worthy of a visit. Flat it certainly is and although there are holes that may seem similar, most have their own distinctive character, just like the famous players they are named after.The best example is Langer, the 17th, which apart from its famous tree whose history is well documented elsewhere, presents players with a challenge from the moment they tee up the ball. Just 354 yards off the whites, your driver is best left in the bag as the only place to land if you want a clear view of the green is well left and short. Whoever claimed that trees are 90 per cent air hasn’t ended to the right of centre on this fairway, where you find yourself completely blocked by a monster that resembles something out of Jack and the Beanstalk. To make things worse, you then have to jab out sideways to avoid the ditch running across the end of the fairway. The greens in October were true and fairly slick, and the rest was immaculately maintained, testimony to the club’s philosophy of leaving nothing to chance. New bunkering is giving extra definition and will be a fine addition to a quality course. Andy Waple @andywaple
