The intended strategy on the tee shot is to play to position in the wide area of fairway either short of the first fairway bunker or short of the second. Very long hitters may take the risk of being bunkered left or in the trees to the right, to be left with a very short pitch to the putting surface if the shot execution is precise. The green is raised more than one metre above general fairway level, bisected by a central transverse swale and is long and relatively narrow. These features make pitched and chipped recoveries from either side of the green quite challenging as are the long putts, sometimes with double breaks, following a misjudged approach. The front pin position is the most difficult and emphasises the preference for a full short-iron approach.
