Hole No. 9 is an uphill par 4. The tee shot is challenged by three fairway bunkers bordering the right side of the fairway and two more to the left. The uphill approach to this green makes judging the yardage very difficult and the presence of one of the largest and deepest bunkers looming just right of the green does not ease the pain of missed shots.
