Ryder Cup Course 2014

Hole 5 – “Crookit Cratur” – Par 4 – 461 Yards

One of the toughest holes on the course, featuring a blind, narrow tee shot over the crest of a hill. Often playing into the wind as well, the left side of the fairway gives the best chance to attack what is actually a fairly large, flat green. However, danger still lurks in the form of a bunker left and a marshy area short right. Unusually, missing long here gives the best chance of getting up and down.
