Welcome Cambridge Meridian Golf Club is so called because it is one of just ten courses in the world to straddle the Greenwich Meridian Line. Just five miles west of the historic and picturesque city of Cambridge, not only is our club situated in a noteworthy geographical location, the course itself has an equally special feel. Set in 212 acres of majestic countryside between the villages of Toft and Comberton, the large expanse of land leaves the player with the luxurious feeling that they are playing millionaire’s golf – in other words that their group has the course to themselves. Designed by Ryder Cup players Peter Alliss and Clive Clark, Cambridge Meridian opened in 1994 and rapidly gained a reputation as a friendly club that offered golfers a tough but fair test whatever their standard. With its eye-catching striped fairways and perfectlymanicured USGA-standard greens, little wonder our championship course has become a favourite in the East of England. Come for the golf – and stay for the food. Lizzie’s homecooked Sunday lunches and the now famous “Cow Pie” have become the stuff of legend. She and her team can accommodate 80 in the club’s restaurant and are equally adept at catering for golfing societies or for more formal functions such as weddings. 5


The Course At 6,700 yards from the white tees and with a par of 73, the course has established itself as a true test to even the most accomplished of players. Frequently used by the PGA and county associations for championships and matches, it has also proudly played host to the English Ladies’ Seniors’ Open Championship on three occasions. The greens are smooth and true in all weathers – a testament to the excellence of their surface is the decision to bring a number of international putting masterclasses and championships to Cambridge Meridian. In fact, the excellent drainage and top-notch maintenance means not only is the course always open, but there are never winter mats or temporary greens to contend with.

6


Be it the meandering Bourn Brook or the strategicallysituated lakes (or both) that the course plots its way so neatly around, water is in play on two thirds of the holes. But this is far from an unfair challenge, with a good share of wide, welcoming fairways to please those who struggle at times with accuracy off the tee. Three holes have dog-legs to tempt the brave soul who regards risk and reward as a part of the game to be embraced. There are so many highlights to the round that it is difficult to select a handful, but the three tiers of the 5th green are sure to live long in the memory, while the par-5 18th has been voted the best finishing hole in East Anglia. And if your game happens to suffer an off-day, simply stand back and marvel at the wildlife and countryside around you.

7


Take the course tour Hole 1 (Sheepshank) 311 yards, par 4

The hole could be named after the knot, or perhaps after the animals that are ready to welcome your ball should it fly out of bounds to the right. Keep your tee shot to the right side of the fairway, too far to the left and you are likely to be blocked out on your approach to the green and face a tricky shot over trees and a stream.

Hole 2 (Church Drift) 365 yards, par 4

A drive favouring the left side of the fairway will negate the couple of craftily-placed bunkers ready to snare any ball that goes too far to the right. A well-placed tee shot will set up a short iron to an undulating green that is guarded by a lake on the left and a vast bunker on the right.

Hole 3 (Watersmeet) 158 yards, par 3

The first of the four par-3s on the course, which you should note all come on the odd holes if you are playing foursomes. The green is a generous size but undulating and slopes to the left and there is a lake to catch anything too far left. Deceptive for distance, trust what it says on the scorecard.

Hole 4 (Hounds Haunch) 529 yards, par 5

A fantastic dog-leg par 5 which will tempt the longer hitters to cut off the corner by carrying the bunkers to leave a second shot over the river and the chance of an eagle putt. The safer route is to keep to the left of centre from the tee, play to the dog-leg and play up to the river. The green is well guarded, with another huge bunker to the right. Make sure you take enough club as long is better than short. 8


Hole 5 (Barnes Field) 185 yards, par 3

A delightful short hole to look at, but one of the most difficult on the course, with a well-bunkered green. Despite being on three layers, the green is difficult to hit, and can provide some very tricky and never-to-be-forgotten putts should you not finish on the same level as the flag.

Hole 6 (Priory Meadow) 526 yards, par 5

A long, uphill, challenging par 5 which needs the right club selection and a little luck to avoid the two fiendishly-placed bunkers in the middle of the fairway which are not easily seen from the tee. The green is large and inviting, but watch for some tricky borrows.

Hole 7 (The Hog’s Back) 389 yards, par 4

One of the most inviting driving holes on the course with the lack of trouble off the tee and the wide fairway. Aim for the marker post and slightly left of centre, which should afford some magnificent views as you reach the brow of the hill. The second shot appears straightforward, although pay attention to the downhill lie.

Hole 8 (Willow Green) 361 yards, par 4

The water to the left should not come into play off the tee, but check your yardages to make sure you are not caught out by the cross bunker in the centre of the fairway. A drive too far left can leave a second shot blocked out by trees, not a good thing when there is also a stream in front of the green to negotiate. 9


We are a welcoming, friendly, charming 17th century country pub with real log fires, and Al fresco dining area with large garden (with patanque pitch and children's play area). Serving classic pub food freshly produced using seasonal and local ingredients (including our own sheep which graze in the joining paddock) we offer seperate children's and gluten free menus. The pub is open seven days a week with food being served mon -friday 12-2.30pm / 6-9pm, saturdays 12-9pm and sundays 12-7pm The pub can be hired for any event from coffee mornings to weddings, throughtout the summer there will be a marquee erected in the large garden which can be hired for private events.

Take the course tour Continued... Hole 9 (Doublecross) 440 yards, par 4

Patience, caution and accuracy are the watch-words on this hole, which has a 90 degree dog-leg to the right. The hole gets its name because you have to traverse the winding Bourn Brook twice, once off the tee and again with the approach into the green. It is possible to cut the corner, but generally the greedier the attempted tee shot, the more costly the results.

Hole 10 (Lord’s Meadow) 500 yards, par 5

If you have not acquainted yourself with the Bourn Brook on the previous hole, there is another chance here, with water crossing the fairway twice and continuing up the left hand side. Keep well right with your second shot, which should leave a short pitch to the green.

Hole 11 (Long Meadow) 300 yards, par 4

Some welcome relief between the stern tests before and after, this is one of the easiest holes on the course and offers a definite birdie chance. The long hitters will fancy going for the green, but more important is to hit the wide fairway and leave a straightforward approach into the green

Hole 12 (Rotadale) 554 yards, par 5

This used to be Stroke Index 1 and still has claims to be the toughest hole on the course, particularly from the back tees. Ladies and those playing from the yellow tees should look to carry lake on the corner of the dog-leg without over-clubbing and finding the bunkers on the far side of the fairway. Another lake runs down the left and with trees on the right, accuracy is at a premium. 11

Take the course tour Continued... Hole 13 (Greenwich Green) 369 yards, par 4

Drive up the right side of the fairway to avoid the lake which cuts into the fairway on the other side. There is a ditch to cross in front of the green, but this should not pose too many problem proving your tee shot finds the short grass.

Hole 14 (The Meridian Line) 413 yards, par 4

A long, testing par 4 that offers a challenge from the tee with water in play down the left-hand side and a trio of bunkers ready to end any hope of reaching the green in regulation down the right. Choose enough club with your second shot to attack the green, which is slightly uphill.

Hole 15 (Cundells Green) 214 yards, par 3

At nearly 200 yards even off the yellow tips, this is a hole which requires a long iron or a fairway wood to reach the putting surface, which is long and narrow. Even those hitting long and straight enough to hit the green are not guaranteed to exit with their par.

Hole 16 (Bunker Hill) 414 yards, par 4

The toughest hole on the course, with a host of sand traps and two long uphill shots required to reach the raised, undulating green. If the bunkers or the distance doesn’t get you, the green might, as downhill putts can be wickedly fast, especially in the summer months.

Take the course tour Continued... Hole 17 (Hill Field) 162 yards, par 3

It may be the shortest hole on the course off the yellow tees, but it is still one to treat with respect. A nice hole to look at as long as you don’t have a fear of water, which must be carried off the tee. The green is long and thin and pin position can mean a difference of up to three clubs.

Hole 18 (Westward Home) 526 yards, par 5

A stunning test to end the round with a par-5 that has been voted the best finishing hole in East Anglia. The first lake must be carried to shorten the distance into the green but that is not even half the job done as trouble abounds. Fairway bunkers, a stream short of the green and more water to the left, this hole has just about everything, including an audience watching your every move from the clubhouse terrace.

Membership Continued... As well as enjoying all Cambridge Meridian has to offer, there are also several ‘away’ days and weekends throughout the year, whereby some of the members get together and play a different course and sometimes make a weekend of it. Any sporting organisation that does not recognise that young people are its future lifeblood is short-sighted in the extreme and it is no surprise that juniors are embraced at a forward-thinking, progressive club like Cambridge Meridian. The youth section is positively thriving thanks to the enthusiasm, dedication and time invested in it by junior organiser Mike Dyke and our two professionals, Craig Watson and Lee Laughlin. Corporate Membership is also available and has proved extremely popular with local companies of all sizes because of the great value it represents. Directors and staff are able to play the course all year round and enjoy the bar and restaurant facilities as any other member of the club would. If you would like to find out more about becoming a member of our friendly club, give either Steve Creighton or Gill Geach a call on 01223 264700 or email us at meridian@golfsocieties.com 19

Pro Shop The head professional at Cambridge Meridian is Craig Watson, who has accumulated a vast golfing knowledge in the 30 years he has spent in the game, a milestone he celebrates in 2011. Craig is a fully-accredited club maker and conducts a thorough 45-minute long custom-fitting session as part of the meticulous process to ensure that the equipment exactly fits the golfer’s needs. Swing speed is measured to ascertain the ideal shaft type and flex for your new clubs and lie angle and shaft length, grip type and thickness are also examined before work gets under way building your perfect-specification club or complete set. You can always spot Craig, because his faithful yellow Labrador Daisy will never be far from his side and she is sure to welcome you with a friendly wag of her tail. If you are on the lookout for new clubs or clothing, the pro shop has a wide range of golfing equipment from leading brands such as Titleist, Srixon, Greg Norman Collection, Sunice, HiTec, Ecco, Bridgestone, Yonex and Snake Eyes.

Golf Tuition Even with the right equipment specifically tailored to complement the idiosyncratic swing mechanics of the individual player, things can still go awry. That is when expert tuition comes into its own and the team at Cambridge Meridian can get your golf game back on track or turn what were previously problem areas into new-found strengths. Our head professional Craig Watson is an outstanding teacher and is a senior coach to the Cambridge Golf Partnership and short game coach to the Cambridgeshire Area Golf Union under-16 squad. His teaching philosophy is that every golfer is unique and if no two swings are identical, then no two lessons should be either. Craig is ably assisted by Lee Laughlin, himself a fullyqualified PGA Professional and both offer lessons to visitors and members indoors, on the practice ground or the course. Take a look at your swing through the latest technology, as the Vector Launch Monitor gives you comprehensive readouts on your ball-flight, speed and trajectory, ball launch angle, club-head speed, back spin and distance. If putting is the problem, then we can offer the Centrecup putting trainer which enables the player to achieve the best putting stroke they can. 35
