The last hole of the outward half is a long, demanding par four. Part of the difficulty results from length. For many, for most of the year, two very good hits are needed, often a third. Shape is another problem, the hole bending further left than might appear at first glance from the tee. By contrast the designated route up the middle avoids a bunker short right, another further up on the left, and leaves a long second down a relatively narrow fairway. But there is room off the fairway on the right before undergrowth comes into play. Trees on the left need to be avoided. The green, sloping from the back is not easy to read although the entrance, bunkered on either side, is comparatively wide. A cottage behind the green, only recently demolished, gives the hole its name, a memory of days when the journey from castle to church needed a river crossing.
