How to Play this Hole

The views to the west and north can be distracting. From these elevated tees a well-placed downhill tee shot must be right of centre on this right to left sloping fairway. Bunkers heavily guard both the second half of this fairway and green. The three-shot option on this hole is the wise plan to set up a birdie attempt.
