Advice from the Pro
Par 5, 490 yards. Slight dog leg left. There is a pond guarding the left side of the fairway out about 220 yards off the tee. The green is elevated, so getting home in two will require two great shots. It's possible, but not probable.
The Tee Shot
Should be played to center or right center of the fairway. If you can hit it big and carry the pond to the left you will be in better shape to get home in two. High risk shot though.
The Fairway Shot
Anything that gets home in two will have to carry the green. Most players will play the hole conservatively and have a wedge remaining to the green.
The Green Shot
The green is huge and is 2 clubs difference from front to rear; very easily 3 putted, so beware that a birdie opportunity doesn't turn into a bogie.
