The putting surface is very narrow and well-protected by several sand bunkers. Pay close attention to the wind here as the tee shot is usually hit into the prevailing wind.

This hole requires two extremely accurate shots. There is out of bounds both left and right. Two fairway bunkers protect both sides of the landing area of the tee shot.
