So called because of its similarity to its famous namesake the seventeenth hole at St Andrews. Similar in length with a green at an angle to the fairway and a bunker cut into it. This is without doubt the most difficult hole on the course, if you have a good card going, drive left, take a medium to long iron and hit right where there should be a fairly easy approach.
The signature hole on the course. From the back tee choosing the line to aim down is everything. With out of bounds all the way down the right its very easy to hit your tee shot too far left. This only leaves you in the rough and/or behind the trees guarding the pond.
It's good advice to treat this par 4 as a par 5 and get there in easy stages.
If the tee is at the front (with the ladies tee) favour the right hand side of the fairway. This will leave you a much easier shot up the length of this long narrow green.
