Straight-hitting is a must for the bunkers and hazards are extremely well-placed throughout. The finish is superb. The 15th, 16th and 18th are all stoutly defended par 4s, with position off the tee vital on 18. In among them lies the split-personality 17th - either a mighty long par 3 or straightforward short par 4 depending which tees you play from.

Panellists' comments: "Testing tee shots and exacting irons are required to find subtle and tricky greens"; "Great year-round condition"
