A narrow tree-lined fairway makes this par 5 11th a tricky hole, as it requires three good shots to find the green. The drive needs to be particularly accurate, as trees encroach on both sides of the fairway. At about 220 yards there is an up-slope in the fairway, with a nasty drop to the right, which catches any wayward shot on that side.

The second shot will take you up the slope, and it’s better to favour the left side of the fairway, as it slopes slightly to the right over the brow, and you could end up in the Rhododendron bushes along the right side of the fairway.

The approach shot should be a short iron to a large green that slopes back to front, and right to left. Depending on where the pin is placed, a choice of three clubs may be needed.

Two bunkers on this hole, one on the right side of the fairway about 140 yards from the green. One bunker front-left of the green.
