Golf Monthly takes an in-depth look at the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles the Ryder Cup Course 2014
Ryder Cup Course 2014
Hole 4 – “Gowden Beastie” – Par 3 – 239 Yards
There are various teeing options available on what is the longest par-3 on the course, and it can be stretched out to as much as 239 yards. The green is protected by a small pot bunker short right, another bunker to the left and a false front that will reject any approach not carrying onto the putting surface. Some players may even have to hit driver from the back tee if this hole plays into the prevailing wind.
