Collingtree Park Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1987

Collingtree Park Golf Club: Located just outside the famous shoe-making town of Northampton, Collingtree Park has more in common with an American resort-style layout than a classically English parkland course. Perhaps this isn't such a surprise, with American golfing legend Johnny Miller designing the course - his first layout in the UK. Several ponds, small lakes and water-filled ditches ensure the presence of water on over half the holes, while earthmounding beyond the fairways provides good definition to the holes in the more open areas of the course. There are several tight drives to be made, occasionally with houses flanking the holes, although it is more frequently water that will occupy your mind from the tee. Both nines finish with a tough approach shot; a ditch fronts the green at the par-5 9th, while the par-5 18th requires a deft approach onto a water-surrounded island green. No one ever said Johnny Miller design's were easy ! Bunkering makes its presence felt from time to time, although maintaining the pressure on your course management and shot-making is more usually entrusted to the water hazards and tightish drives, rather than a plethora of fairway or greenside bunkering. On the back-nine, traffic noise from the busy A45 road might provide a slight distraction, although the terrific closing holes, not least the par-4 17th and par-5 18th, will keep you fully focused on the golfing job at hand.
