Details for Hole Nine
The fourth short par 4 on the front nine, but again the accuracy of the tee shot is vital. The drive is uphill through a narrow gap (off the White tees), and then the fairway runs to the right, for any wayward ball to be caught by a long, thin fairway bunker, or slide further into the woods. A high slice (right-hander) will find you OOB over the Pilgrim’s Way! However, really big-hitters can take a risky short-cut directly over the trees and to the green, with the potential of an eagle putt!
For mere mortals, a good tee shot will leave a short-iron down the hill to the green, which is protected front-left and right by bunkers. The green itself has two levels, with a ridge running from right to left about 2-3 yards onto the green. The putting surface to the front of the ridge is fairly flat, but the rest of the green slopes from back to front, and can make for some difficult putting.
Three bunkers, one about 190 yards from the White tees on the right of the fairway which catches many tee shots. One bunker short-left of the green, surrounded by gorse! Third bunker short-right of the green.
