A 502 metre par 5 (478 from the Members and 437 from the Ladies tee), is a tight driving hole slightly uphill and out of a chute between the mature pines. The two fairway bunkers on the LHS at 280 metres act as a sighter and to frame the hole rather than being located for strategic reasons. It is the second shot where the difficulty begins, players have to decide to take a gamble and go for the green in two or to lay up short of the two fairway carry bunkers on the LHS and a well established Eucalyptus tree on the right.

Even laying up, players can get caught behind this tree and will have to decide to go over the top or try and run the ball under the branches , over an undulating fairway. Mounds at the back and right, with large swales front right and left, protect the green. There are no greenside bunkers, as players will have a variety of shots to play if they miss the green.
