first hole of the back nine introduces players to the first of the
rolling hills and sloping fairways that they can anticipate on the
backside. This dogleg left
plays short at 371 yards, but it actually can play
tough if the tee shot is not placed correctly. Anyone long
the tee should be aware of the fairway bunker on the right and
the 45-degree sloping ledge at the 140-yard point.
The second shot plays a good club or two shorter than usual because of the downhill drop to the green. Run-up shots are not recommended here because most shots that land on the front soft-sloped and collared green will be stopped in their tracks.
The green itself is large with a deceptive visual perception. The green appears to have a fairly good slope from back to front. However, most putts come up short when golfers expect to get more downhill speed than the green will give.
