This wonderful dog-leg, which forces your 2 shot over the water is governed solely on the placement of your tee shot. With just a small window of opportunity, your first shot from the middle tee should be struck exactly 175 yards. As a blind shot, you must aim at the Red Flag, setting high in the tree in the background. Once you have passed this test, your approach shot over the lake must be precise and special care must be taken with the distance as this very large double-green is 70 paces deep. Any shot not perfectly struck into the green will run off and if short, your ball will end up in a watery grave. Putting on this ‘immense’ surface will give you nightmares for the rest of your life and the unseen breaks will make you dizzy.
