Hole 5 – Sugar Bowl

Image DescriptionA testing par 4, that requires a positive decision from the tee to avoid the trees on the left and right. The ridge across the fairway gathers the tee shots to the right. Long hitters can carry it but mortals may be better advised to play short and have a longer shot to the green. The second shot to a blind green is a challenge; the hill slopes away towards the green. From what you can see, the green is some 30 yards further on. The line is left of the marker at the back of the green. As a rule, take more than you think, you are playing to a large green that runs away from left to right. Too far left or right and you could end up in the whinnies. There is a large slope to the back of the green, with out of bounds beyond.
