This par 4 is demanding in every aspect. From the tee the creek stretches the width of the fairway. Longer hitters will need a long iron or hybrid to avoid running out of fairway.
Positioning the tee shot centre or to the right will prevent being blocked by the left side trees.
The second shot plays to an uphill green requiring half a club more than the yardage suggests. Careful attention should be paid to noting the pin placement here, as a shot left-short to a back pin will require superhuman efforts to 2 putt.
The green is very undulating and is protected by bunkers short, long left and long right.
Once on the putting surface, expert putting is required to negotiate a tier and late breaking putts.
