This par 4 hole at 358 metres (315 from the Members tee and 282 from the Ladies tee) is a slight dogleg left to a relatively narrow fairway. Lake St Andrews on the LHS starts at the beginning of the fairway runs the full length to the back of the green, therefore demanding a straight drive from the tee. A fairway bunker has been placed 260 metres from the back tee on the RHS, to give a target to aim at, but be careful not to over play your shot.
The right side of the fairway offers the best line into the green, as players will have a good view of the long and narrow green. The fairway has many mounds and hollows, making it very rare to get a flat lie to play your second shot. There are no greenside bunkers, as the green is slightly elevated, with water left and swales right, giving the player plenty to think about.
