HOLE: 5          'Straight and Narrow'


Without doubt one of the tougher holes, a Par 4 playing longer than its metreage would imply. With a narrow chute for the tee-shot, and the difficulty of avoiding the low hanging branches from the trees lining the right of the tee and fairway, it requires a carefully controlled tee-shot.
Driver is preferred here with a straight ball flight starting down the left side. Those who hit with a fade ill be advantaged by a more open approach to the green. With an elevated green ahead it is not uncommon to underclub, so an extra club will often assist the unwary. The green slopes back to front and left to right, so leaving the ball on the right side of the pin here will be to advantage.
