A testing par 5 from the competition and ladies tees. From the yellow tees the hole is played as a Par 4, the longest on the course at 434 yards. A great golf hole that should be played with the head rather than the heart. Although longer hitters can get up in two, the reward is seldom worth the risk. With dense woodland on both sides of the hole and a fairway which slopes down from right to left along the entire length of the hole, the 9th represents a real test of golf.
"This is a great risk and reward hole.The sensible plan is to hit a drive to the right side of the fairway and let the slope do the work and then to lay up and attack the pin with your approach shot."
