Another short par 4 at only 297 yards (White tees), but again, not an easy hole.

All uphill from the tee, the drive needs to be accurate to ensure a good second shot to the elevated green. Too far left or right off the tee and the trees will grab the ball, and too long (220 yards) will bring a large fir tree into play! The best shot is to the left of the tree about 200 yards, leaving a full short-iron into the large green (shaped like an upturned saucer).

The green undulates all over the place, with a slight ridge running the width of the green towards the back.

Four bunkers on this hole, one about 20 yards short-left of the green, one front-right (and deep!), and one behind the green to catch the over-hit approach.
