This hole hinges on an accurate drive. Avoid the trees to the left off the tee and the water on the right…an eagle is not out of the equation for professionals!
Relatively straight forward hole. The fairway falls away to the right of the green and this represents the only danger.
A short downhill par 4 that will have the pros licking their lips in expectation on the tee. Reachable in one if bold enough and the approach shot must be hit with care as the green can be deceptively difficult to hold depending on the pin placement.
An accurate tee shot up and over the rise will set up a straight forward approach and a birdie opportunity.
A long and challenging par 3.A wide but narrow green will not provide the golfer with a large margin for error. Most will walk off, happy with a par.
A late dogleg to the left demands a drive middle to right side of the fairway. The two-tiered green will demand a courageous approach shot when the tee is placed on the upper level .
A well-placed drive over the trees to the right will eliminate the dogleg and reward the ambitious with a straight forward approach shot. The safer option down the centre requires a long and demanding approach to a green protected by tress on the left hand side.
Known as the “Erima Road” hole, the errant drive to the left will provide the opportunity to meet the locals and negotiate the return of one’s ball – for a reasonable sum – and pickup a few tips on peanut farming for free. Otherwise, an accurate drive will provide an excellent birdie opportunity.
An interesting par 5 and easy birdie opportunity. The green extends to the right but is protected by water and large trees – spectators always look forward to seeing interesting golf on this hole.
