The first of the Par 5s is a wonderful strategic hole that makes you think over every shot. The tee shot is dominated by a water carry and a small deep bunker right in the middle of the fairway that has a nasty habit of collecting any balls that go near it! Do you play short or bail right of the bunker and leave yourself a longer lay-up second shot that brings the cross bunkers into play? Or do you take on the water on the left hand side by threading your tee shot between the pot bunker and the lake? Brave tee shots that take on the left side will be rewarded with a shorter second shot that makes the green reachable, and an eagle or birdie a possibility. The collection of bunkers on the right of the green are very deep and hard to recover from. Approach shots that end up in the deep swale on the left or over the back will bring a big score into play. The large green sits at an angle and has 3 distinct sections with the back third the most difficult to access. A memorable hole where anything from a 3 to a 7 can be made.
A well placed second shot will bring in birdie opportunities.
