A very tough hole and yet one of the most beautiful in the world of golf, with high dunes on both sides of the fairway banked in heather.
The tee shot must find the fairway, the best line being down the left-hand side. Long and left opens up the green, but anything short and right is blocked out by a large bunkered dune. An approach shot landing short right of the green will usually receive a favourable bounce towards the target.
The 13th green offers some of the most varied and difficult pin positions on the course, with more three putts witnessed here than on any other green. The green is set in its own amphitheatre and has a unique atmosphere.
