12 handicapper perspective
The first par five on the outward nine demands a long drive favouring the left side of the fairway but one which avoids the two fairway bunkers. The second is a real risk and reward decision – the further right, the longer the carry over trees on the corner of the dogleg, the further left, the longer the third shot into the green. Shots to the green landing short can kick left and run through, shots right invariably find the lengthy bunker. Look to play this hole conservatively and take a five – worth a birdie against the field.
Important for the second shot to be in position for the approach shot to the green, alignment is critical to a green that slopes away.
