This is a tidy, often turbulent parkland in the heart of Co. Down. It starts as it means to go on with a sweet and straight par four between the trees, rising to a flag that tempts you from the tee box. There is plenty of wild woodland scattered over fine flowing countryside and it gives Spa a certain elegance. From the clubhouse look down the 9th and 18th, which sit in parallel, and you’ll appreciate the shapes Spa throws at you. Both holes descend into a deep dip before rising quickly to the green. The par three 2nd and 17th are two of the highlights.
