Hole No. 7 offers a definite risk-vs.-reward approach. The seventh features a split fairway. The shorter route to the left fairway shortens the hole by more than 50 yards, however the landing area is only 26 yards wide and the entire left fairway is surrounded by bluegrass rough and a water hazard. The approach from this island fairway will be a carry of 210 to 230 yards all over water. The fairway to the right is the longer but safer route. With the water hazard skirting the front and entire left edge of the green. It is a brave player who attacks this green from any angle.
