This is a good starting hole that gives a player the chance to get ahead with a birdie. The addition of a new tee has added some 25 yards in length and a better angle to work the ball around the dogleg left. This may bring the driver into play, but chances are a 3-wood or hybrid off the tee will be the percentage shot. A right-to-left tee shot to the ideal landing area will leave a short iron to the green. A tall tree line guards the left side of the fairway and the right side is well bunkered from 295-335 yards out. The aggressive player may try to turn a driver around the corner and play a short wedge but needs to make sure he turns it just right in order to gain an advantage. The key to the approach shot is to stay below the hole. The toughest hole locations are back right and front left of the green.
