Hole Guide:

This is a daunting hole from start to finish. It begins with a tee shot through an intimidating tunnel of Georgia Pines and finishes with a green ruthlessly guarded by a sea of bunkers back and front.

The drive on this tight hole is often played to the left-centre of the fairway setting up a second shot from a a level lie. The 7th has become even more difficult since it was extended by 40 yards, giving the pros no choice but to take driver if they want a chance of a decent approach. Three traps at the front and two at the back mean the mid-iron selection has to be better than perfect.
