A seemingly straightforward hole, the tee shot plays slightly uphill. Split the fairway and you’ll leave yourself 195 yards from the marker pole. For the longer hitters it’s 250 yards to reach the beginning of the deep gorge or 285 yards to carry it. Most players will be using a fairway wood or hybrid to reach the green in two and will need to feed their shots in from the left side of the green. The rough on each side of the fairway looks harmless but, be aware, the ball tends to sit down in the grass making it difficult to get pure contact with approach shots. A difficult pin position is the top left tier.
The Back Nine
No real difference from the 6th hole second time around but always an achievement to par this hole twice.
