Carolina Cherry Par 4 460 yards
The 9th has become one of the most difficult holes on the course since extra yards were added in 2002. The perfect drive is a long, tree-hugging punch down the right-hand side of the fairway in order to take the two large greenside bunkers out of play on the approach.
But even if players produce a grade A tee-shot, one of the most difficult shots in golf awaits. The green is famous for sloping from back to front and anything short can end up 40 yards back on the fairway. This hole can prove a gritty psychological challenge at the turn – the average score was 4.198 in 2008.
