Hole 5

Pro Guide Hole 5 : RAILWAY : Par 4 : 366 Yards

From here the view across the new holes is at its best and the difficulties ahead can be seen. The fifth isn’t particularly long nor should it be particularly hazardous but depending on the wind direction it could be a short iron or a dunt with a fairway metal. The punitive rough down the left has been thinned out but the run off area on the right has been tightened with a bunker.

The approach to the green is covered by a grassy bunker just short and slopes off to the left. Clubbing is important but being straight off the tee is critical. The greens again provide a challenge.

The key addition to this hole has been the creation of the Blue Tee which sits way back in the corner and changes the dynamic of the hole completely. Best left to those who know better!
