Since Del updated the website the hole lengths are no longer listed, but I believe from memory the length from the pros was 92 meters and the width of the fairway is currently about 8 - 15 meters, it changes all the way up.
Its about a 3 meter elevation change.

Why?

Why?
Only a 3 meter drop? From my experiences of using clinometres on DG courses I reckon it's double if not more.

my memory was wrong, checked the tee post last night and it says 82 meters.

Maybe more on the drop, but the top of the bushes are about level with the tee pad, and don't think they're more than 4 meters high.

There's a wee project if you fancy, make a clinometer to measure the angle and use trig to find out how much the drop actaully is. If there's time, I'd be interested to know the rise and fall on all the holes.

Filthy beast! If I ever catch you using a clinometer to work out my drop I swear I'll do time! It's people like you that give the sport a bad name. It's bad enough when you get your chanter out...

Cheers for that, just one more thing, roughly without getting out any measuring device with fancy names how far is it from the tee to the edge of the slope.

a quick check of google maps would suggest about 5 - 10 meters, front edge of slope. Once again why? are you producing a replica in your back garden?

With a bit of time I'm on the Clinometer thingy. I'd be intrigued on a few of the holes.

I'd say the hedge was 10 metres and drop off 15. Guestimate.

ok thanks for that, i am actually making an exact copy of all 18 at QP in my back garden. Actually (whispering) we have a borderline legal secret woodland course and we are re marking it, in it there is a hill at about the same hight as 10 that we played across but i was thinking of playing down it and in doing so i was wondering if we could make it a copy of QP but its a secret so shhhh (finish whispering) :P

i could but i would have to shoot you afterwards ha hahahaha :twisted:

Its not marked at the moment, we had to make it vanish for a few weeks but we are putting it back now, it's in hookstone woods so it's sheltered through the winter. you need spotters with you though because it can be a nightmare.
