Course Changes for the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship at Nailcote Hall

Never one to sit still the owner of Nailcote Hall Hotel Rick Cressman is currently undertaking a number of alterations to the Cromwell Course near Solihull, Warwickshire in preparation for this year’s British Par 3 Championship.

As Rick said, ‘After last year’s event we decided to plan the course layout to finish on the longest hole which in normal playing use is number 7. At this year’s championship it will be played as number 9, swapping places with the traditional 9th hole. This will give spectators a much better opportunity to enjoy the excitement and the great view provided by the Grandstand which views the house.’

It has also meant that Rick has wanted to make the finishing hole even more spectacular for competitors, spectators and the Sky Sports camera which will be covering the event from 9th – 12th August.

A new water feature stretching all but 16 yards short of the centre of the green means 130 yards of the 146 yards long hole is threatened by the new pond and has narrowed the safe fairway area by a third!

At the same time it has wrapped water around the left hand portion of the 8th green and any hooked tee shot will certainly run the risk of finding the new stretch of water too.

It all looks really attractive according to Rick but he adds that the change will add even more bite to a course that is already the most challenging and tough short course in the UK.
