Description

The walk to the fifth tee is short but now the direction turns westerly into the prevailing wind, helping to make this one of the most difficult holes of the outward nine. Yet viewed from the slight elevation of the medal tee, the drive seems inviting enough. True, there are trees, bushes and undergrowth stretching all along the left while the first hint of the river encroaching from the right is only too obvious. Yet the landing area, if not the fairway, looks sufficiently broad. The preferred drive is up the right hand side in order to provide the best line for the approach shot, however, care must be taken to avoid the fairway bunker. If you pull your second shot the line of trees stretching alongside the final part of the fairway on the left can be unforgiving. The green itself is comparatively flat but tightly bunkered at the front and both sides. Standing on the tee, all but the very best would accept a par.
