Perhaps only the famous 6th green on the West Course across the street at Royal Melbourne is more severe and experienced players of both know never to leave the ball above the hole. The tee shot must avoid the pair of fairway bunkers – one short on the left and another further along on the right – and the gap between is not so wide players that can swing away without some concern. Into the north wind the 6th is a long and difficult hole but with the wind behind it is not so demanding – unless you leave yourself the horrible downhill putt.
