Par 5, 542 yard 14th (Head for Home)

Par 5's usually offer birdie chances but you would be happy to walk away with par here, with every shot into the green, both downhill and blind.

Facing an imposing tee shot through two narrow tree lines and with a pond lurking down the left, a driver is neccessary but it's important to be accurate.

Even if you've hit a great drive, the second shot is blind again. Playing into areas is the best policy, making sure you hit a crisp iron lay-up for your best chance of finding the green in regulation.

A big fairway slope into the green is avoidable if you have a wedge straight on to the putting surface but remember to under-club otherwise you're straight off the back.
