With a golf course that’s nearly a century old, the club has done well to stretch the length out to over 6700 yards. Two factors can make it feel even longer: Par is 70, so a typical par 72 version would get close to 7000 yards. Moreover, all but four holes (10, 12, 16 and 17) require an uphill approach shot. The tee to green game is the most challenging aspect at Worcester. Once the player reaches the putting surfaces, the challenges are a bit more muted. Only a handful of them (4, 11-13, 15 and 18) have the kind of undulations that are typical of Donald Ross courses.
