Hole 9, Par 4

Blue: 286m
White: 274m
Red: 244m

This is an intimidating hole with ponds on the right and left of the fairway, requiring the tee shot to be straight as an arrow to the middle of the fairway. The landing area is fairly large as the hole takes a dog-leg turn towards the right. The fairway bunker around the 250m mark may pose problems for big hitters. The approach shot to the elevated green needs some care as trees emerge from both sides to bottle-neck the approach while a bunker lies in front of the green to catch those who do not get their distance right. Over the green lies more trouble, with thick vegetation ready to swallow the ball. The contours of the green make long putts difficult and therefore reading the putting line accurately is important.
