The Toughest Par 4s in England

By: Golfshake Editor | Fri 31 Jul 2020 | Comments


Par 4s are the foundation of most golf courses and come in all shapes and sizes, the best of which feature a varied selection in character, including both long and short ones, doglegs, tight fairways and treacharous greens, challenging golfers in a range of different ways. 

We wanted to find out what the most difficult were in England, studying the rich library of data within the Golfshake Score Tracker to identify those holes that put a blemish on more cards than not. 

Looking at rounds tracked in 2020 from golfers with a handicap between 4 and 23 who shot scores ranging from 70 to 110, each of these par 4s required at least 30 tracked rounds to be considered for this piece. Let us know if you have played any of them - and share with us the par 4s that you believe are the hardest.

So, without further delay, meet 20 of the Toughest Par 4s in England!
