The 18 hole golf course is set within the 268 acre Broome Park Estate. The undulating countryside, with beautiful views of the surrounding valleys makes this course a good test for all golfers.
Course lowdown: The front nine at Broome Park are relatively tight and tree-lined so play cautiously to begin with ? 3-wood or long iron is the sensible option off many of the tees. On the back nine take the driver and open the shoulders a little. The greens are not overly sloping so if you?re stroking it well you?ve got a good chance of making a few putts. The 18th, the toughest, is a sweeping dog-leg of 508 yards that?s reachable in two for the better player. But a pond waits short of the green ? if you don?t strike your approach correctly you could find a watery grave.
