One of three interesting par 5s on the course.

This double dog leg offers a good chance of birdie. From the tee there are two options:

The safe route would be a long iron towards the right of the fairway, followed by another long iron or fairway wood to the left of the fairway bunker to leave a straightforward pitch to a large inviting green.

The braver route would be to hit a 3 wood or driver over the out of bounds fence; if successful this line shortens the hole considerably. However, if the ball fails to find the narrow strip of fairway your second shot will be played with a short iron from heavy rough back to the safety of the fairway. (Fortune doesn't always favour the brave.)

Excellent place for a seasoned golfer such as myself and also has a fantastic beginners course. Really beautiful surroundings make it a great place to visit.
