A relatively long par 5 hole that bends and slopes from left to right. From the elevated tees, the two fairway bunkers are very much in play and the drive should favour the left because of the slope. However, the extreme left flank is OB. Two other bunkers on the left await the second shot and the right side is lined heavily with palm trees. For the approach third shot to the 3-tier green which has three bunkers guarding its front and sides, careful consideration must be made to choose the correct club to go for the pin – particularly when the hole is placed at the back. The green slopes steeply from back to front right. It will take two very long and accurate shots for the very long hitters to reach the green in two and try for that elusive eagle.
