The final 400 yards- plus par four offers a particularly fine view of the entire clubhouse and to the Downs beyond. Heather and fairway bunkers left and right define the drive into a flat landing area. Further on, there are two more bunkers set into the right half of the fairway that may trouble the longest of tee shots, or perhaps a second shot recovering from a poor drive.

The second shot is into a very narrow front opening to the green, due to bunkers both right and tight in left, with a further blind bunker behind to catch any shot carrying to the green but pulled much past left quarter. The green is fairly flat so two putts are likely, and a par at the home hole will be the reward for a fine second in, but a bogey five is more likely if the green is missed.

Pro's tip

A well struck tee shot is the key to this tough finishing hole. You have to thread your second through the gap to the green and the bunker on the left foreshortens the distance. Take one more club than you think and you may set up a rare birdie chance on this great finishing hole.
