Courses

Course description:Southwater Country Park is a reclaimed clay pit from historic brick workings. There are several Lakes in the centre of the park, which is now a bowl surrounded by natural woodlands. The woods contain much detail and can be slippery after rain. Headline course lengths will appear quite short, but actual distances are significantly longer due to diversions around the lakes.
Colour coded courses:Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue
