Hole 9

Pro Guide Hole 9 : GAILES : Par 4 : 383 Yards

This is a dog leg left with an extremely dangerous drive. The hole has a number of teeing grounds which change both the distance and direction of the drive. Newly placed left hand bunkers cut off all but the longest off the tee from taking the short cut. The bunker at the outside corner of the dogleg has been added cutting off that escape route as well. From a well placed drive the second shot to the green provides an attractive target to hit.

The slope runs uphill front to back and the ball can bit hit straight at the pin and will stick. Bunkers left and right make direction important. Leaving an uphill putt is recommended as the swing and speed downhill can be difficult to guage.
