The signature hole of the golf course. The tee shot is both inspiring and a little daunting of the elevated tee.

“Like greens, fairways should have contour”
HCP 0-9: A solid long iron onto the plateau for a chance to go for the green in two. Safe 2nd shot is a short iron short of the water to leave a wedge onto the green.
HCP: 10-18: Fairway wood short of the 1st ditch or onto the plateau. 2nd shot long / mid iron to lay up before the water. 3rd shot is a wedge over the hazard onto the green.
HCP: 19+: Driver / Fairway wood for position short of the 1st ditch. 2nd shot a short iron onto the fairway between the two ditches. The big hitters 3rd shot a mid iron into the green. Shorter hitters lay up with a wedge and chip on.
Green: A medium sized, flat, elongated putting surface. Receptive for the high approach shot. Protected by the frontal water. More trouble through the green.
