Birdie chance: 318-yard par-4 10th

Although the 2nd hole is the shortest par-4 (279 yards) on the course, the 10th is also on the short side and relatively hazard-free, presenting a great chance to improve your scorecard.

Longer hitters may be tempted to cut out the slight left-to-right dog-leg and go for the green over the trees and bushes down the right side of the fairway, but the safe shot is down the left.

Even with an iron off the tee, most would still be left with a short wedge in for their second. There is nothing protecting the front of the green, so going into the pond over the back is a really poor error.

The green itself is one of the flatter on the course, so if you're on the short stuff in two there is every chance of holing out for a birdie.
