Playing back into the prevailing wind presents some new challenges.
From the tee the line is the green in the distance, but unseen from the tee at a distance of 310 yards from the Championship Tee lies a penalty area which the longer hitter must take into account.
The second shot is often played from a down slope to an elevated green in the form of a basin which gathers shots from left and right. Great care needs to be taken with club selection here as there is dead ground in front of the well-bunkered green. The green has severe undulations making putting difficult.
