The edge of the fairway bunker on the left is the best place to aim your drive. Don't worry, the fairway is wider than it looks. When you hit the second time, stay left and try to go too long instead of too short. The green has three levels, so look carefully to see where the flag is.
The ideal direction for the drive is the left edge of the big oak tree. Wherever your drive lands, always continue left of the oak tree. Many players choose to go right instead, and they end up in all kinds of trouble. Don't go too long when hitting the ball onto the green; there are dense bushes lurking just beyond. This green has three levels as well. So look where the flag is.
This hole takes longer than you would think, because you have to play uphill to the green. Take an extra club and you'll get the ball onto the green. If you can get the ball into the hole with two putts, you'll make par.
You should drive onto the left side of the fairway. Not only will you avoid the water on the right, you will also take a shortcut to the green. Only expert players make it onto the green with the second stroke. Everyone else is doing well to hit the ball short of the green on the left; there is more space there than you would think. A word of warning when putting: The 4th hole is the fastest green on the course, and a bogey is a good score for most golfers.
Shifting winds make the drive difficult on this hole. There are bushes and rough around the green just waiting to snatch the ball, so a short stroke is the safest strategy. Skilled chips and putts are essential to a good score on this one.
The right side of the fairway is the best place to aim your drive. The second stroke should be longer, because the fairway goes uphill. The green appears closer than it is when viewed through the trees. The green itself is flat. Good chance for a birdie!
Keep an eye on the trees to the right. It is better to try to drive onto the left side of the fairway. The second stroke should put the ball just before the four bunkers. Then it is still about 100 m to the green, but there are no more bunkers in the way. The green is longer than it appears.
If you can drive long, you can hit the ball over the lake; everyone else should aim for the little shed. But if you play around the outside, it is nearly impossible to get onto the green with two strokes. That's why a bogey is a good score. The green slopes down from the back to the front.
On this hole, most players hit the ball into the trees to the right of the fairway. You can avoid this by aiming to the left – despite the water. Only expert players make it onto the green with the second stroke. The safest strategy is to play the ball straight ahead, and then from 100 m, pitch onto the green. The green is usually damp, so the ball does not roll too far.
It is important to drive to the right. The second stroke is key. Aim to the left side of the green, even if the flag is on the right. Otherwise the large bunker may interfere with your plans. With two putts, you can make par.
The drive should land on the left side of the fairway; there is plenty of room there. Don't be tempted to hit the ball over the water on the second stroke; it will not save much distance. It's better to land the ball just before the water and then to play onto the green from there. The third stroke is always longer than it appears, so take an extra club or two with you. The green is firm and fast, but two putts should suffice. And once again, you've made par.
Advanced players can hit the ball to the left and over the bunker; everyone else should aim straight ahead. The second stroke should land the ball before the green. If you hit too hard, the ball will disappear into the ditch. The green is longer than it appears. Chipping and putting will determine the score on this hole.
This par 3 is shorter than most people estimate. It doesn't matter where the flag is: You should always aim for the left side of the green. Watch you speed when putting. When the flag is towards the back of the green, most players put too much force into their putt.
Try to drive towards the left edge of the bunker on the right side of the fairway. Very good golfers can then play onto the green; everyone else should try to get the ball to the right and before the green. A bogey is good on this hole.
You will usually have the wind in your face on this hole. Because of the water, take an extra club and aim for the left side of the green. Wherever the flag is, it is easy to reach from here. If you can get the ball into the hole with one putt, you'll have a birdie or par.
Good players can drive towards the church steeple, while those who don't drive as far can aim for the oak tree on the left. Expert players can accept the challenge of landing the ball on the green with the second stroke. If your handicap is higher, shoot for the left side of the fairway before the green. This hole is not as wide as it looks. But good players may well go back to the clubhouse with a birdie on this one. Everyone else can make par.
