Terrain

Everdon Stubbs and Wood are mature broadleaf woods owned by the Woodland Trust. The Stubbs (the main wood) refers to the historic practice of coppicing trees. Visibility is good in the woods and there is an extensive path network. There is some bramble

in places, but courses avoid most of it.
