Hole 13

Pro Guide Hole 13 : BUTCHARTS : Par 4 : 377 Yards

The walk brings the golfer back to the original course and the old 6th hole. The carry across the burn shouldn’t be too difficult but simply by being there invariably causes problems. At the shortest point the carry is perhaps 125 yards but the temptation to shorten the hole is strong and can lead to water. Bunkers strategically placed on the left can catch longer straighter drives.

The green is well protected with a large mound with an inset bunker short left while another bunker guards the right; the burn snakes around the side and back of the green and is still very much in play. The green itself is probably the flattest on the course. Good driving hole which can set up a short approach.
