5. Heather - Par 4 S.I. 3
A 315 yard uphill, dog-leg right par 4. A challenging hole where the tee shot must be struck well and accurate across a dip that holds crossing paths and ditches to find the rising, undulating fairway. An errant tee shot might easily find either ditches that line the hole or beyond into rough heather. A second shot from the flattening fairway beyond the knee of the dog-leg will reward a good tee shot to leave a short approach. This approach must be judged well to avoid dangerous bunkers on the left and to find the right level of a multi-level sloping green.
