All fairway bunkers are within range so the only line is down the middle. The most reliable long iron or fairway wood ideal off the tee for accuracy. The stream crossing the fairway is in range of the tee shot so be wary. A generously sized green with water close right. Favour left centre green for safety.
Left hand bunker well in range and leaves a very difficult second shot – favour right fairway off the tee. Water further right may catch a slice. A ball landing short of the green will hold up. Check distance and wind carefully. Prominent ridge divides green in two, club for the pin position of the day.
Left-hand fairway bunker can be in range – don’t ‘cut the corner’. Three wood aimed at the right hand fairway bunkers will set you up for a safe second shot. Fairway slopes to the right, make allowances for your second – beware water all down the right. A lay up second shot is wise. Water on the right will call for an accurate shot in.
Aim your tee shot left centre fairway to avoid the bunker cutting in to the fairway. A drive into the right hand bunker will leave a very difficult approach. Sand left and right of green call for a straight long iron or wood for the second. Perhaps safer to lay up and chip and putt for par. Another green divided by a prominent ridge.
The longest hole on the course – time for the driver. The shortest line is up the left and will be rewarded with a birdie opportunity. Aim your second at the bunkers ahead to open up the green, left is dead. Bunkers front left and right guard the small green – slopes left and back make recovery difficult. Club selection vital for the shot in.
