The Ninth: Par four. Close to the end of amen corner on the River Course! A flattish par four that is the most exposed to the westerly that blows up the valley. A raised tee enables you to survey your drive which requires a very accurate and well hit tee shot. The fairway is an ess with bunkers in the elbows and one needs to decide whether or not to take them on. If one does and one succeeds, the reward is a short iron approach into a deep but narrow green guarded by bunkers on the right. Catch the bunkers off the tee and par will require a deft pitch and single putt as one won’t be reaching the green in two. Again, par is a good score here.
