Hole Guide:

This is an uphill dogleg left featuring another typically testing putting surface that slants downwards towards the front of the green.

Inspired by the "Road Hole" on the Old Course at St Andrews, the 5th has been spiced up by deep fairway bunkers which demand supreme accuracy from the tee.

Players who are tempted to cut the corner but get a bit too greedy often pay the ultimate penalty. However, the approach can be difficult from the far right-hand side of the fairway so it's a case of finding the perfect line.
