The sixteenth - The Crossing

The 7th – The Crossing

There is more than meets the eye. The seventh is the same length as the fifth and from the tee box looks relatively straightforward and surprisingly flat; but you would be wrong. Half way along the fairway there is a deep gully which suddenly drops 20 feet; down there everything disappears from view.  Big hitters should be wary of going for the green – to the right there is a severe drop with punishing rough – better to go left.  The walk down and up the gully will sap your energy just before attempting a delicate chip to the green!

“Some people believe that when you die, you cross the River of Death and have to pay the ferryman. People don’t seem to worry about that these days. Perhaps there’s a bridge now” – Terry Pratchett, A Hat full of Sky.  There is no bridge at The Crossing.
