The penultimate hole of the front nine is a testing Par 4 that has a water hazard running down the left-hand side. Recent improvements to this hole have been the incorporation of thick rough along the right-hand side and the reshaping and widening on the fairway to the left.
Players should aim their tee shots to the left half of the fairway to create a good angle of attack for the approach shot to the green. By hitting a long iron or fairway wood off the tee, the approach shot will most likely be played with a mid to short iron. The green is protected by a large bank on the left-hand side and an additional mound short right of the green. It is better to be long with your approach shot as there is a good chance of getting up and down. For big hitters, a good drive will most likely leave a lob wedge left in and a good chance of birdie!
