A dog-leg left and a great scoring opportunity. This is the hole where the players will look to gain some momentum and many will feel they have missed an opportunity if they don’t walk away with a birdie.
Although it’s the longest hole on the course, the downward slope means players can gain excellent run. However, the right-hand fairway bunker poses a problem for those who don’t quite have the miles in the tank. Large, deep greenside bunkers take special attention on the second shot. The lay-up might be favoured depending on the pin position. There were two eagles at this hole last year.
