A feature hole where the blind drive should be placed to the right of a prominent limestone promontory known locally as ‘Spion Kop’. Accuracy off the tee is essential as a misdirected drive can easily find the gorse and hawthorn on either side. A fiendishly difficult second is required to the narrow, double-plateau green with sharp falls off on both sides. Any timidity invariably leads to a missed green and a difficult chip. This is the only hole on the course without bunkers. It doesn’t need them!
