The long fifth hole is a par 5 that is reachable in two for only the longest ball strikers. The majority will lay up short of the water hazard which is only a short wedge distance from the green. A solid drive between the large tree on the right and a small copse on the left will leave a good view of the remainder of the hole. The second shot will present a sloping downward stance which adds to the difficulty of the hole. Two large bunkers guard the front of the green, and once again, the player who takes enough club to clear these will have the best opportunity of a birdie putt.
