Hole No. 5

A superb par 3 that would not look out of place on any course. The green sits perfectly in a slight bowl with a back drop of pine trees. Three bunkers protect the front of the green which is fairly narrow and widens towards the back.

The hole entices the player to play safe to the back of the green, however this is not the safe option with a severely sloping green from back to front. Club selection and tee shot placement are vital on this deliciously tricky little hole.

A superb design making the player think about how to play the hole. Interestingly this is the only hole on the course with a bunker directly in front of the green, all the other holes offer the player the option to pitch short and run on, but not this little beauty.
