Hole No. 12

Fortune favours the brave especially on the second shot at this par 5 12th hole. A potential birdie is on offer to the stronger player, but first the tee shot must find the generous but undulating fairway. Hooked shots may be swallowed up by the cavernous bunker lying in wait in the left rough, from which escape rather than distance is the only hope and there is a cleverly placed bunker in the edge of the right rough 230 yards from the tee.

Once safely on the fairway, the green can be reached by the longer hitters, but this demands a shot of great accuracy bypassing the two bunkers 45 yards short of a narrow long green which falls off in all directions.

The green it is a relatively flat putting surface with a slight rise from front to back.
