The player is advised to have a good look from the Black Tee as it gives a panoramic view of the entire hole. From the Blue Tee the view is constricted by tall trees on both sides with the crown of the palm trees below shielding much of the target area – putting a huge demand on the drive. The left side of the wide fairway is OB and tall trees on both sides may punish the player who is wayward with the drive. Even with the elevation advantage, not many long hitters will be able to get onto the green in two as the hole rolls downhill all the way, except for a small level tier about 150 yards from the green. The 2nd shot is usually a lay up and should take into consideration the large drain that runs across the fairway about 100 yards from the steeply raised green. There are deep bunkers guarding the sides and back of the green but once on the putting surface, there shouldn’t be much problems at putting except when the distance between the ball and the hole is too great.
