RHA would like to inform you of the RHA Charity Golf Day taking place at JCB Golf and Country Club on Wednesday 13 October 2021 please see details about the course below.
JCB Golf & Country Club, Rocester, Staffordshire
The JCB Golf & Country Club is a private members club constructed on a 240-acre site, the 18-hole layout was designed by Robin Hiseman of European Golf Design.
The course is laid out on a landscape of heavy clay and therefore an extensive drainage system was installed during construction to ensure that playing surfaces play firm and fast.
The course was designed to test elite golfers, holes are routed in two returning nines, transitioning through parkland and woodland areas, with a few lakes and streams to be negotiated along the way.
Highlight holes include the par four 1st (with water on the left affecting both the tee shot and the approach to the green), the doglegged 3rd (which swoops left down to the green perched adjacent to the canal) and the par three 9th, played sharply downhill to a green located in what was once the arboretum.
The inward half is accented by the par four 12th with its downhill green sitting above the meandering stream with the putting surface protected from the flowing waters by a lovely dry-stone wall. The par three 17th plunges spectacularly downhill to an island green on South Lake before the closing hole rises up and left to the horseshoe-shaped home green.
The bunkering on the 18th is quite exceptional, especially the large centreline hazards which split the fairway, and the fabulous three-tiered green on this hole is one of the most interesting putting surfaces on a layout that isn’t exactly short of fascinating green contours.
Sounds fabulous, doesn’t it?
