As its name implies, the clockwise loop of nine holes initially follows the Shoreline south towards the Lodge at the entrance to the course. The opening drive is straightforward but a par 4 is still quite difficult to achieve. In contrast the drive at the par 5 second required the longest carry to the fairway of any hole at Prince’s. With its severely undulating fairway the fourth is a daunting hole even for the best golfer. The 6th is the post war 18th playing to the same green where Gene Sarazen won the 1932 Open Championship. The 7th begins the return north to the new Clubhouse, an accurate tee shot must be followed by an even more exact second to find the elevated green which slopes steeply to the right. The 8th is a challenging par 5 with a tight fairway and a par at the last is often hard to achieve. The clubhouse flagpole is an excellent aiming point for the drive which should best find the far right of the fairway to open up the approach to the green.
