The 12th: Pilgrim’s Way

The 12th: Pilgrim’s Way

As you make your way along this short but tricky par 4, lovely views of Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle come into view. But your concern off the tee is finding the centre of a fairway that’s banked sharply left-to-right and lies at an oblique angle to the tee. The approach, over an outcropping of dunes, is blind — unless you’re brave enough to hug the extreme left side without straying into deep rough. There’s more than enough here to keep you occupied, even if this classic links hole has no bunkers.
