PAR 5 - White 477 yds, Yellow 444 yds, Red 426 yds
Standing on the tenth tee with a wind howling over your left shoulder, makes you realise this is one of the most difficult holes on the course. The most obvious first thought is to strike the ball off as far left as you dare, however, this may enhance your chance of a slice, but worse, you just might manage a hook. The simplest answer is to try and hit the ball well, take a good easy swing and focus on making a good strike.
The pampas grass on the left should be considered, and remember, it's out-of-bounds on both the left and right. It is courteous to wait for players putting on the thirteenth green to finish, prior to driving off.
With a strong wind the two fairway cross bunkers come into play on your second shot. This means that if you are unable to carry the bunkers, you should lay up or take care to play accurately between them.
There are also two water hazards to consider on this hole, situated about 170 yards short of the green, a small one on the left and a pond on the right. Once past the bunkers remember there's a ditch that runs down the right from about 130 yards short of the green. It's also worth remembering that the rough on the right can be most punitive and is best avoided.
The green itself is raised, like an upturned saucer, thus, it's important to take enough club to ensure you clear the slope and hold the green. Playing short often results in rolling across the slope into the left greenside bunker, or falling off the front side of the green to the right. The green is quite large with numerous slopes and undulations to contend with, depending on the pin position, as it is sometimes appears that the flag is nearer the centre of the green than it really is.
