Hole 9 – 209 metres
This hole runs parallel to the third, is played to another section of the same green, and needs to be treated with a similar degree of caution. The flag position is customarily adjacent to and guarded by a large (5 tonne) limestone boulder in the middle of the green. There is no free drop from it.
Due to the topography and surrounding trees there’s not much logic in having a crack at the green from the tee so a layup to 170 metres followed by a 40 metre run up is the safest way to try and make par. This green is extremely shallow with a severe drop one metre behind the green.
