Hole 13, Alps
Hole 13
Duncan Frazer
By Duncan Frazer
Royal Liverpool, handicap 12

This hole is the hardest par-three on the course and typifies Hoylake and the effect the wind can have on your round.

One day you can be hitting a four-wood into a strong wind, the next, with the wind behind, all you need is a gentle six-iron.

The green is protected on the right by a gaping bunker, and on the left the green slopes away into thick grass. This makes a clean hit from the tee essential - pull it off and there's great relief and satisfaction as your ball lands safely.

The green offers a panorama of the Dee Estuary, with uninterrupted views to Hilbre Island and North Wales, and is one of the classic images that are often captured by photographers visiting the course.



YOUR HOYLAKE EXPERIENCES AND COMMENTS:

Played Hoylake with a society in March. Had a hole in one on the 11th (now the 13th for the Open). Will be watching to see if anyone can match that.
