Pro's Tip

“A short hole that demands a good shot or you will have a tough time making your par. The prevailing wind is usually from left to right so favour aiming at the inside edge of the dune standing sentry on the left side of the green. Better short than long here as it is all “carry” – so take enough club. Once on the green note that it slopes from back right to front left.”

Hole Description

Accredited with being involved in designing over 300 golf courses worldwide (115 on his own including Sunningdale new, and Wentworth East and West) worked predominantly with Charles Alison, John Morrison and Alister MacKenzie forming Colt, Alison and Morrison Ltd in 1928.
