Blakes Golf Club
The Blakes Championship course, designed by renowned course architect Howard Swan, is best described as an inland links. The layout and undulations of the course are totally unique to the area with rolling fairways and slippered bunkers giving the feel of a traditional seaside links.
A unique drainage system involving a grid work of gully pots positioned on all fairways, USGA standard sand based tees and greens enable the course to be playable in all conditions. Full computerised fairway, tee and green irrigation enable all areas to remain green and lush should there be a lack of rainfall. Greens have been constructed to a size that will mean that the use of temporary greens will not ever be necessary. Buggy paths that cover the entire golf course enable buggies to be used for 12 months of the year.
