This is a very demanding par 4 that typically plays as one of the most difficult holes on the front side. The prevailing wind generally blows against you here, which adds to the length and difficulty of the hole. The position of the tee shot is key as players will definitely want to favor the left side of the fairway and avoid the huge set of bunkers that guard the right side from 269-343 yards off the tee. It is all but impossible to reach the green from this location with the combination of sand and trees to deal with. A good drive will leave a short to mid-iron shot to a large green with plenty of hole locations. The green is deceptively fast from back to front so players will want to stay below the hole. The toughest hole location is back left.
