Course Tour : Hole 5


"Keep well left; the dam is deep"

Bob Charles’ advice for playing the 5th hole

Although it looks reasonably short on the card, this hole is very demanding. Any tee shots right will find a quick path down towards the dam, which will make for a tricky recovery, or even a drop out of the hazard. The best tee shots flirt with the left hand rough. The green slopes markedly from front-left to back-right and there are few flat pin positions. If you must miss the green, miss it right, as missing it left will require great touch to chip or pitch the ball down the slope towards the pin.
