Hole Nine

Par 3,  Yards 182,  Stroke Index 17

Wreck

Par 3, Yards 182, Stroke Index 17
Pro's Tip

“Another great par three where only a good shot will make sure you are putting. As a general rule too much club is better than too little as being short usually means a difficult bunker shot. Percentage play is to go for the centre of the green wherever the pin is situated and rely on your putter for a birdie.”

Hole Description

Named after the wreck of the Norwegian Barque SS Nornen which can be seen from the new back tee. The SS Nornen was wrecked in a gale in March 1867. The Burnham Lifeboat was launched and the ten brave oarsman managed to heroically save the crew of 10 together with their dog.

The ninth is a classic example of a MacKenzie par 3 hole and was designed in conjunction with Colt. Once again this hole formed part of his 1913 proposal but was completed and opened for play in 1923.
