Bunkers left and right of this dogleg could catch golfers out, but a 200-yard tee shot sets you up for a birdie.

No. 6

Another demanding par 5, this tree-lined tee shot has bunkers right and left to catch any wayward shots and culminates with a green surrounded by bunkers left and right as well.

No. 7

Denbrae

Par 4, Stroke: 8

No. 8

Fair Dunt

Par 3, Stroke: 16

“Fair Dunt” can be an understatement with this uphill par 3, which can frustrate with prevailing winds.

No. 9 Craigtoun. Sunset on the 9th green at The Duke's golf course.
No. 9

Craigtoun

Par 4, Stroke: 2

With a challenging second shot, this hole can quickly catch the golfer out, thanks to the long and narrow green with a left-side bunker.

No. 10

Burn Brig

Par 4, Stroke: 5

With a severe dogleg right to left, Burn Brig challenges even the best golfers. Short and straight will find you in a bunker, while too long means the ball will be swallowed up by the rumbling burn.

No. 11

Winthank

Par 5, Stroke: 1

The longest hole on the golf course, with hazards to the left and right, Winthank requires an accurate tee shot.

No. 14 Well. Looking from the 14th tee at The Duke's towards the green at dusk.
No. 14

Well

Par 4, Stroke: 13

An elevated tee and wide fairway make this hole ideal for long drives, as additional distance off the tee is necessary to hit this undulating green with nightmarish hole positions.

No. 15

Steading

Par 4, Stroke: 3

This hole features a sweeping dogleg right to left with an elevated green, as well as deep bunkers.

No. 16 Melville. 16th green at The Duke's golf course.
No. 16

Melville

Par 3, Stroke: 15

The last of the par 3s, Melville is a cracker with its bunkers left and right and severe drop-off through the back – not to mention the prevailing wind that blows left to right.

No. 17

Strath

Par 4, Stroke: 7

A picturesque gentle left-to-right par 4, this hole features two pairs of oak trees. It’s known to the members as “The Card Wrecker”!
