Edgbaston: Course open, trolleys and trikes permitted but no buggies today. Please stick to fairways, extremely wet in areas.
The stroke index two hole needs a long drive down this generous fairway. A very long hit will get the benefit of a sudden drop in the contours. The second must carry some astutely placed bunkers and hold up against the slope that will throw a careless shot into the deep bunker on the right.
Low handicappers should hit it long and straight and play a fairway wood or long iron to the left side of the green. If you are not so long then play carefully and lay up short of the cross bunkers.
