Par-4, 399 yards 4th ( &13th)

Without a doubt the trickiest hole on the course, leaving a dilemma both off the tee and when striking your second shot.

If you’re a big hitter and you want par, there’s a chance of finding a small gap in the trees 300 yards down the fairway or hitting a solid drive to give yourself a mid-iron over a couple of 20-foot high shrubs and bushes.

In the three-step photograph we see the view off the tee, the hazardous second shot over the trees, and the bunker protecting the tight green.

For the mid to high handicap golfer, I suggest making best use of your handicap strokes. Lay up well short of the trees and use your third stroke shots to get on the green around the dogleg left.

This course tests your accuracy throughout, especially if this is your first outing, and this blind shot to the green is surely the toughest.
