A tough par thee with nowhere to escape. With a bunker short and left, right and back, it just drops off everywhere you go. A really good strong quality hole this one.

If you can get to the crest of the hill it’s a pretty impressive approach. Need to carry the water hazard and watch out for water left and right. It’s a really super hole.

A lot of options on this hole. If you can get your first shot away and you’re a big hitter you can be tempted to go for the green. The guys really like this hole because you have to shape your shots off the tee and on approach. A very picturesque hole too.
