12 handicapper perspective
This is stroke index one for a good reason. Long enough as it is, the hole plays gently uphill for almost its entire length. The drive needs to be straight or left of centre. Anything to the right will roll across into the fairway bunker if you are lucky, into penal rough if you are not. After a good drive, all but the longest hitters still face a second of 200 yards or so up to the green which has two bunkers to the right and one to the left. The green slopes from back to front. A par four here is gold dust.
A great par 4, for most a good short game is required to make par.
