This hole, while not the longest on the course, offers one of the most difficult second shots to a small narrow green.
The tee shot is blind and from the championship tee the white stone can be used as a marker, but a shot pulled left will flirt with a deep bunker protecting the 7th green. From the left side of the fairway the green is opened up for an exacting second shot, while to approach from the right means negotiating the large bunker on the front right of the green. Although the second shot requires great finesse it is usually with a medium to short iron.
The green is like an upturned saucer and is extremely demanding to chip on to.
