This hole is the most difficult on the course and it’s quality is underrated simply because it plays across a gentle piece of ground. On a more undulating fairway this would be recognized as one of the finest holes in Melbourne simply because the architectural principle around which it is based is perfectly executed by Morcom.
The drive off the tee is preferably to the left side of the fairway avoiding the fairway bunker. A perfectly struck drive to the left will open up the green. Coming in from the right hand side of the hole would demand the second shot being played over a greenside bunker and swale.
